    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been held in Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration status. Since this suggestion was initially made back in 2014, the product's architecture has evolved significantly and since ACEv11, we have removed UUIDs from the directory structures and files which underpin the integration server's file system. This step was taken in order to facilitate the cloning and copying processes referred to in the request, which we commonly also refer to as "unzip and go" when describing the simplicity with which you can now place files into the run folder of the integration server's work directory and then start up the server. Status of the idea is closed as delivered.

    Good requirement, thanks for raising. We'd like to improve our backup and restore capability and being able to restore to multiple brokers is desirable.
