Seriously? If your database of choice is a chore to backup while live, you need to rethink your choice.

Full or incremental backups should be a trivial operation, with support for intra-backup change capture only a little more effort (log shipping, replication, etc.)

Of all the reasons to lose data, "Backups are hard!" should not be in the list.

Going the speed of light is bad for your age.
