In this article, we will describe how to create a backup of a SQL Server that is installed on Linux.
How does SQL Server create a backup?
You can create a SQL Server backup by running the T-SQL command
BACKUP DATABASE.This command saves the backup file to a specified directory. SQL Server backups are created quickly because it requires just copying data from the database files to the backup file.
When creating a backup, you do not need to stop SQL Server or switch it to single-user mode, and the database continues to work as usual during this operation.
