No, not really. Backups are taken on a per database method and that's the only way to restore. You can script the entire process (with a lot of work and testing) so that you can regenerate a system from a single command, but that command will consist of a series of database restores.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
