Overview
The continued success of your business depends on being able to restore
your servers to its full capacity quickly. This backup solution gives you fast
local access to critical files that reduces downtime in the event of a disaster.
IDrive BMR is an onsite disk image backup/restore solution. With this,
you can perform full, incremental and manual backup of a computer
including multiple hard drives and partitions. The backed up data is saved
in the form of a single file (known as an Image) onsite. You can maintain
a ready-to-use, bare-metal restore (BMR) capability with each file-based
backup. This advanced solution lets you restore backed up data to multiple
computers at the same time.
Bare metal restore and full hard disk imaging makes you rest easy knowing
that in the event of data loss you are protected. You can restore your entire
system along with all its settings at once. No need for rearranging data,
reinstalling software or reconfiguring any system or application settings.
