After you start using the IBM® Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM), it will contain more and more important data. Therefore, it is essential to make regular backups of the data to avoid losing it.

To minimize down time, you can increase the reliability of the ELM applications by using hardware that provides high reliability. However, failure can still happen. Since the entire development teams depend on the infrastructure, it is a good practice to be able to recover it as quickly as possible. The Interactive Backup Guide provides specific information about what to consider when backing up the ELM applications.
