Abstract: Importance of the process of restoring a database requires precise exami-nation of all factors that affects it. Considering the decline of price of SSD and it’s better read and write speeds it seems like logical choice when reducing downtime is primary concern for the organization. This paper categorizes storage devices in use as well as main backup types in MS SQL Server. Tests are conducted to evaluate the impact of the storage device on backup and restore efficiency. In this regard, the purpose of the research is to examine problems associated with selection of a storage device for efficient backup and restore in MS SQL Server. Conducted tests showed some surprising results regarding SSD’s efficiency. The reason these findings are important is that they could be used as a guideline for choosing proper storage device for organization’s needs.
