It is quite common in real life that sometimes observing or retrieving older data is necessary; however, it had changed as time passed by. The full database backup was 40 GB in size, and, to restore it on our production server, it usually takes around 16 to 22 minutes, depending on the load server that is usually present. This range in time varies from one server to another as per the configuration of the computer. Some other issues we used to have are the following: 1. When we try to restore a large 40-GB database, we needed at least that much space on our production server. 2. Once in a while, we even had to make changes in the restored database, and use the said changed and restored database for our purpose, making it more time-consuming.
