White Paper: Backup & Considerations for Documentum
For companies operating in multiple time zones and running customer-facing portals such as customer service applications, there is no good time to take Documentum offline for a system backup.
CYA HOTBackup™ enables you to mitigate and even eliminate planned Documentum downtime by performing hot, consistent backups of the entire Documentum application.
Most hot backup solutions perform content and metadata backups at different times, resulting in backups where the content (i.e. a loan application) will not be linked to its most recent metadata (i.e. digital signatures). CYA HOTBackup also prevents data loss and corruption issues commonly caused by other hot backup solutions.
CYA HOTBackup is designed to integrate seamlessly with CYA’s flagship product, CYA SmartRecovery™ . CYA SmartRecovery mitigates unplanned Documentum downtime by enabling hot, granular recovery of Documentum objects in response to operational incidents such as viruses, power surges, and user/programmatic errors. This is also complimented by our CYA enSync disaster recovery solution which minimizes risk and gets your business back up and running in just minutes in the event of a disaster.
Documentum Downtime is CostlyStudies conducted by IT industry analysts show that on average, businesses lose between $84,000 and $108,000 for every hour of IT system downtime. For a company that needs to bring Documentum down for daily backups and maintenance, that translates into tens of millions of dollars lost per year.
CYA HOTBackup™ eliminates planned Documentum downtime by performing hot, automated, consistent backups of the entire Documentum application that are automatically stored within your system backup solution.
CYA HOTBackup is Documentum-aware, and tightly integrated with both the Documentum platform and your system backup application so it can control, coordinate, and execute the backup of each component in the sequence required to ensure data consistency. CYA HOTBackup prevents corruption issues commonly caused by other hot backup solutions.

We need to ensure that the content and metadata within the repository can be restored quickly to its original state at the object level, with minimal negative impact to productivity. We evaluated several applications, and chose CYA SmartRecovery because it was the only solution that would enable Cytec to quickly recover from partial data loss incidents without having to take the system offline.”

Our choice was CYA SmartRecovery.”

“Daily cold backups aren’t a best practice for Documentum because the entire system must be brought down, which isn’t an option for us, and it results in a 24-hour data loss window. CYA SmartRecovery enables us to recover objects while online, and reduces our data loss window to just 15 minutes.”
- Jerry Travers, Director, Enterprise Content Architecture, CCH
