Lab Management: Use Database Backups During Deployment for Repeatable Automated Tests

I was at a customer recently who have a small test database – around 120MB in size. I had encouraged them to use the DB Professional tools in VS 2010 to track their schema – that way they could deploy the database (as well as the latest schema) and some test data (through INSERT statements or even better, data generation plans). However, their developers didn’t have the time or skills (yet) to do this.
