Is TFS 2013 Accessible During Scheduled Backup?

If you are taking backup for your TFS 2013 through “Scheduled Backups Wizard” from TFS Administration console, is the TFS will be accessible or not?

This question come to my mind, however, I tested it and I see that TFS will be online and accessible for readying and writing.

Which means, you can query your work items and update them as well.
