Title: Backup/Restore of Studio-Pro configurations
Post by: perditi0nspam on June 14, 2019, 05:07:36 AM
Hi everyone,

The following thread from 2011 asked whether or not backup/restore is possible for Studio-Pro. The answer being that it's on the roadmap:

http://script.digitalsignage.com/forum/index.php/topic,1247.0.html (http://script.digitalsignage.com/forum/index.php/topic,1247.0.html)

I would like to revisit this request since backup and restore is a very important aspect of any disaster recovery and business continuity plan.

At present the only solution that exists would be to buy your own mediaserver, and back it up as an on-premise snapshot. This would be a costly and very inconveniant soluton for many users.

I would like to suggest implementing a backup of an account's studio, and/or allowing the export/import of an entire studio. By exporting the solution it can be stored as a backup solution without requiring any additional storage resources from cloud based accounts. Any such export solution should include all aspects of the studio including resources, screen types, catalogs, campaigns and so on.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter  :)

Now that touch is in use, proper backup/restore is even more important!

we will again forward this to our development group for evaluation. we cannot however promise though that this will be implemented as the devs would need to see its impact to the overall system, economic feasibility and of its usability. 

best regards
