Backup and Restore Overview
The Disaster Recovery System (DRS) provides full data backup for all servers in a Cisco Unified Intelligence Center cluster. It allows you to perform regularly scheduled automatic or user-invoked data backups.
The Disaster Recovery System performs a cluster-level backup, which means that it collects backups for all servers in a Cisco Unified Intelligence Center cluster to a central location and archives the backup data to physical storage device. Backup files are encrypted and can be opened only by the system software.
DRS restores its own settings (backup device settings and schedule settings) as part of the platform backup/restore. DRS backs up the drfDevice.xml and drfSchedule.xml files. When the server is restored with these files, you do not need to reconfigure DRS backup device and schedule.
The Disaster Recovery System includes the following capabilities:
A user interface for performing backup and restore tasks.
A distributed system architecture for performing backup functions.
Scheduled backups or manual (user-invoked) backups.
