I am a SQL Server DBA, but I am confronted with Sharepoint the very first time. To my understanding I can take a full backup once per day via SQL Server and log backups for example every hour. In this scenario Sharepoint full farm backups are not needed, correct? I want to be able to restore my data with losing a maximum of 1 hour, what strategy is needed? As far as I understand my SQL Server Backups are enough, but in case of a hardware crash I have to setup a new sharepoint and restore from my SQL Backups into it and maybe correct some settings.
Or am I missing something? What do you guys/girls recommend? The server is only used on daytime, so full backups which run over night are no problem. Also I have enough disk space to save up to 30 Full backups.
I am using Sharepoint 2013 / SQL Server 2014 Standart
