The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Question: When will “Download Your StackExchange Database” be available? (for the StackExchange software used to run this SQLA website)

Answer: "This is planned for beta 7, which will come out sometime around the end of January or early February." - http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/3641/when-will-download-your-stackexchange-database-be-available

Here's the reason this is important: http://sqlanywhere-forum.sap.com/questions/109/what-is-the-backup-and-recovery-strategy-for-sqla

Here are the implications: When this happens, I'm going to start heavily promoting SQLA... even though both StackExchange and SQLA will still be in "beta" for some time after that, it will be (IMO) safe to use.

Like Google Mail was safe to use even though it was in beta for years.

Please be sure to let the community as well as us Sybase folks know when there is a backup solution in place.

I'll let the 100-point bounty be my answer to you :)

@Chris: Are you Sybase folks going to handle SQLA differently when a backup (and maybe the "SQLA GA") are available - i.e. are you going to support this "more formally"?

@Breck: I didn't realize there was a bounty on this question; that's not the reason I posted my Answer.....however...I'll take it.

@Volker: As Dave mentioned in an earlier question, we continue to monitor SQLA, and hope to see a community develop around it.
