Database systems have very specific backup requirements that in enterprise deployments require forethought and planning. For database systems, the operational goal of a backup solution is to create a copy of the data in a state that is equivalent to when application is shut down gracefully. Application consistent backups meet these requirements and Caché provides a set of APIs that facilitate the integration with external solutions to achieve this level of backup consistency.
External backup is the recommended approach. Existing system backup can easily be expanded to include a Caché backup of all appropriate diretories. Restore procedures will vary based on how the backup was done and what is needed to restore.

Activitly used databases can be backed up using the built in online backup. Since Caché databases are included in the online backup, an operating system level backup is needed for the backup file, journals and application files not in Caché.
