Implementation -> Infrastructure Hardening: Backup

Risk and Opportunity

Risk: If errors are experienced during the deployment process you want to deploy an old release. However, due to changes in the database this is often unfeasible.
Opportunity: Performing automated periodical backups are used. Backup before deployment can help facilitate deployments whilst testing the backup restore processes.

Additional Information

Dependencies: Defined deployment process
