Run Database Backups
Run database backups for your system on a regular basis, so that you can restore your databases and configuration after a data loss event.
Use the tools that your hardware vendor provides for taking disc snapshots. For more information on creating external backups, see the section “External Backup” in the “Backup and Restore” chapter of the Data Integrity Guide. InterSystems strongly recommends that you do not use InterSystems IRIS online backup for production InterSystems IRIS systems.
