IBM Connections supports various relational database system including IBM DB2, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server. The database system is used to store all the application (Wiki, Blogs, and so on) data and holds other information for administration and maintenance. These data are vital business information and should be made available based on the business requirements that is usually 24x7 in today's business environment.
To support the high availability data, each vendor has its own high availability and disaster recovery features that you can implement in your IBM Connections environment. IBM DB2 High Availability and Disaster Recovery (HADR), automatic client reroute, Q-replication, clustering support, and online backup are features that provides the capability of 24x7 data availability.
The IBM Connections data should be backed up regularly with database utility or by exporting data and back them up.
In this wiki, we use IBM DB2 as the repository for the IBM Connections data. For more information about the DB2 high availability and disaster recovery options, see
