To enable recovery after a crash or disaster in your Spotfire environment, it is important that information stored in the system is backed up. Most of this information is stored in the Spotfire database, but some of it is stored on the Spotfire Server.
This manual will not describe how to perform backups, only what to back up. It is assumed that you have some sort of backup software for files and computers, and that you use the backup tools provided with the database. Refer to the database documentation for instructions on how to perform backups.
One can only restore to a machine running the same operating system as the backed up system, since there is a bundled Java runtime with binaries for a specific architecture.
Back up each server in the cluster.
The following sections describe what needs to be backed up.
