What is Log Shipping?

 Posted by BABU_AKKANDI on 4/6/2009 | Category: Sql Server Interview questions | Views: 5066

In Microsoft SQL Server, you can use log shipping to feed transaction logs from one database to another on a constant basis. Continually backing up the transaction logs from a source database and then copying and restoring the logs to a destination database keeps the destination database synchronized with the source database. This allows you to have a backup server and also provides a way to offload query processing from the main computer (the source server) to read-only destination servers.
