Structured Data (Databases)


(Context: Software, Technology Management)

Data is organized and stored in specific formats by the Database System. The server backup contains a copy of the source database files but they are not directly usable except by the database system and may not be transaction consistent. In addition to the server backups, databases need to be backed up using the database software. Scheduling and retention of database backups should be controlled by Database Administrators based on the type of data, agency requirements and the reason for the backup.
