Advances in Bare Metal Recovery for Linux and AIX Systems
By Storix
The need for rapid system recovery is more important than ever in this day and age when an entire business model can hinge on a company’s properly functioning servers. In the event of hardware failure, a bare metal recovery can take days or weeks, especially if the new systems are not identical to the ones that went down. This white paper discusses advances in bare metal recovery that use file-level backup, known as ASR (adaptable system recovery), that enable quick restore, even from bare metal and onto hardware that is dissimilar from the original system. The paper will also discuss how file-level backup and recovery has the ability to improve a wide variety of IT tasks, including bare metal system recovery, restoration to virtual environments; and hardware migration. Read this white paper to learn how only file-level backup and recovery (or ASR) enables organizations to meet ambitious recovery time objectives with greater flexibility.
