Data Publishing

Publishing a Microsoft SQL Server database allows you to temporarily attach the database to the target Microsoft SQL Server without launching restore. Publishing typically occurs faster than using standard restore features and could be convenient when, for example, your time to perform disaster-recovery operations is limited.

After you have launched a publishing operation to a Microsoft SQL Server, you can quickly republish the latest or point-in-time state of the database to the same server.

Before publishing data, read the Considerations and Limitations section.
