I want to get some opinion on what is the best practise to test our backups to ensure it's recoverable.
Our practise currently is by running the backup validation job every quarterly. Is this sufficient enough? This backups are Oracle & MS SQL DB backups.
Reason I'm opting to validation only is because I do not have sufficient hardware to perform an actual restore as some of the backups are rather large.
If indeed doing validation alone is insufficient then I will need a strong reason to push for new storage purchase.
