Bits and Bytes – Backups!
Today’s topic is short and sweet – Backups! Backups are worth their weight in gold to an administrator. Even though backups have never been put on a scale, we know they weigh a lot! In the world of Enterprise Content Management, backups have to be attacked from many different angles usually. System registry, databases, filesystems and more have to be backed up and then integrated back together on a restore, which can be complicated to say the least.
But there is one ECM system that does not require complicated backup strategies: ILINX Content Store! That’s right – all you do is configure database backups. No registries—file system is completely optional and in the event of a recovery, a fast reinstall of the server software and a database reattach is all that is required. Conveniently all the settings, data, and preferences are saved in the database. Compare that backup strategy to other industry-leading ECM systems and you will see how simple it is.
