"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That would be SQL Server Agent, where you can create 'jobs' to run whatever executible / SQL Script / SSIS Package you wish, and then set a schedule of when it should be executed.  The schedules can be saved and reused in different jobs.

What you could do is schedule a job to run lets say on a daily basis and then have the task repeat every hour.

Multiple jobs share the same schedule if you configure them to start at the same time.

Here is an example for you.  Lets say you have SQL database where you want to backup the database once a day and the logs every 30 minutes so that your RPO is 30 minutes.

For the database backup, it is simple as you schedule it "scheduling tape of Recurring", frequency to daily, to recur every 1 day and daily frequency to once.
For the logs backups, you do exactly the same but under daily frequency, you choose the option "occurs every" and set it to 30 minutes.
