UltraBac's disaster recovery features are even more important for large distributed systems and NT server farms:
UltraBac's disaster recovery technology (UB-DR) is based on scheduled snapshots of one or more disk partitions. The snapshot is an exact mirror image of the partition -- frozen in time -- which allows a good backup even for files that are currently open. This technology guarantees restoring a failed machine in absolute minimum time and effort. Image technology is most often used for protecting operating system partitions. UB-DR can operate stand alone or compliment UltraBac's standard file-by-file backup capability.
Image technology is fast because it does direct reads on a disk, bypassing the file system and minimizing overhead. Yet it still is able to skip non-used blocks on the disk and use software compression technology to reduce storage space used.
Images can be saved to either local or remote tape devices or to any network UNC path. You can protect EVERY server in your network, with or without a tape drive. If a protected machine fails, you can boot it from a single network aware DOS floppy. Recovery can be fully scripted for user environments without on-site technical staff, or can be run interactively by an administrator for optimal flexibility. Restore a 2GB system partition in as little as 10 minutes!
UB-DR is a form of operating system insurance, protecting users against the worst case scenario -- a failure where the machine won't even boot. Image technology makes restoring a system a snap, whether the failure is due to registry corruption, accidental file deletions, and/or file corruption. Just boot from a single floppy. No other operator intervention is required.
Ensure the safety and integrity of your data with a total solution that combines UltraBac's comprehensive backup software with UltraBac Image-based Disaster Recovery.
