RECOVERING AFTER A DISASTER DOESN’T HAVE TO BE PAINFUL
A disaster recovery plan is an essential part of any IT infrastructure. The table below compares three common recovery methods. Each method serves a different purpose and can compliment the others.
|Data backup restore||Local disk image restore||Bare metal restore|
|Restore operating system|
The IDrive Bare-Metal Disaster Recovery (BMR) server is an excellent solution for businesses that cannot tolerate any downtime. The BMR server is a physical device that connects to your network and allows you to do bare-metal restores of both servers and workstations. The BMR server significantly reduces downtime, because you can recover from a crash without needing to reinstall and reconfigure your software.
Moreover, you can create virtual instances of your systems, allowing you to access your data while a machine is down. You can even restore data at the file level (i.e., a single file that was deleted in error). As an added level of protection from severe disasters like fire, flood, or theft, you can transfer backups to your IDrive cloud account. Finally, you can manage your machines anywhere from a centralized web console. Recovery can start as soon as a crash occurs.
