Can I have multiple SQL Backup run on the same server

Can I have multiple SQL Backup run on the same server - Multi threading?

I have a server that has 1200 db's on it - it takes over 14 hours to back these db's up. I would like to have more than one backup running at one time - can SQL Backup 6.4.0.56 PRO do multi-threading? If so - how do I put this in my proc (sql stmt) that we call for our backup job.

Thanks
Geri

Just create multiple jobs, each one backing up a different set of databases.

The limiting factor would be your disk and CPU subsystems - are your database files all on the same or different set of disks, are you writing the backup files to the same or different set of disks, do you have enough CPU capacity to service the various backup threads etc.

We backup to a backup share - hosted on a VM windows machine.

Thanks Petey.
