Many factors, ranging from human error to natural disasters, could compromise the capability of the hardware infrastructure that runs your IBM® Business Process Manager (BPM) system. To preserve business continuity when an entire data center is lost, it is important to have a disaster recovery plan. This plan describes the operational procedures that must be followed to regularly replicate the configuration data and the runtime data that comprise your IBM BPM system as well as the operational procedures that must be followed when restoring the replicated data to an alternate data center.
There are several options available to IBM BPM administrators who want to design this type of replication strategy. One such option is described in detail in Storing transaction and compensation logs in a relational database for high availability and disaster recovery in IBM Business Process Manager. But consider other strategies as well.
