Disaster Recovery

Bare Metal Recovery for Linux and Windows

With SEP’s Bare Metal Recovery, users can restore entire servers, operating systems, and databases quickly and easily using a universal boot medium.  This recovery method can be achieved regardless of the type of hardware in use.  SEP disaster recovery solutions allow users to replace a computer system or disk drive and easily restore the environment to full operation within minutes. 

To ensure a fast and complete system recovery, SEP’s Bare Metal Recovery solutions are fully integrated in the SEP sesam backup module and can be controlled by a single point of administration.  System administrators managing many systems know that server storage devices frequently fail. According to Google System Labs, around 140,000 hard drives abruptly fail every week, destroying many petabytes of data.  With the release of SEP sesam Bare System Recovery, disk drive and system failures need no longer be a devastating occurrence.
