We all know how important it is to verify your backups. But many companies simply lack the technical ability or time to do such a thing. Chris Marshall’s company, VerifiedBackups.com to the rescue. They have a service that is aimed at companies with under 100 GB of SQL data. and will do an end-to-end verification of your SQL backups, guaranteeing that they are recoverable and safely stored offsite. I’m a fan of “as a service” anything, but this really takes the cake. Such an important thing to do, and he makes it happen.
