Introduction

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Network Backup Gateway protects the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system database information by backing up the database from the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system to a designated location on the network where the database can then be backed up by using your standard corporate process.

The Network Backup Gateway replaces the tape backup and interim FTP backup processes. If you are using the FTP backup process, we recommend that you upgrade to Network Backup Gateway because its encryption offers greater security.
