Each minute of downtime in today's business environment is money wasted. Whether an entire network, a single server or a workstation is lost, the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) always needs to be immediate. During a serious business disruption, when minimizing downtime is crucial for retaining customer satisfaction and service levels, administrators cannot afford taking the time to acquire, rebuild or configure matching systems. In order to rapidly get needed businesses systems back up and running, administrators need to be able to easily recover an entire computer disk image to any other available machine that is on hand.
SonicWALL Continuous Data Protection (CDP) Universal System Recovery for server or workstation software combines Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) with universal restore capabilities to recover entire workstation and/or server systems to identical or dissimilar platforms. When deployed in combination with a Dell SonicWALL CDP appliance and the Dell SonicWALL CDP offsite data backup service, Dell SonicWALL Universal System Recovery delivers an easy-to-use comprehensive multi-level disaster recovery solution.
Simple, fast recovery of whole systems or individual files
Simple, fast recovery of whole systems or individual files restores an entire PC or server, including the operating system, applications and user settings without having to relocate and reinstall any original software.
Universal restoration to identical or dissimilar platform
Universal restoration to identical or dissimilar platform allows IT to restore a disk image to readily available hardware, in either physical or virtual environments, reducing costs by requiring fewer hot spares.
Fast migration options
Fast migration options offer complete physical-virtual, virtual-physical, physical-physical, or virtual-virtual migrations for system recovery, testing and other purposes.
Integration with CDP
Integration with CDP lets you create, transmit and store a complete system image directly on to the CDP appliance by enabling the Dell SonicWALL CDP appliance as an FTP server to allow read/write operations and then using the Dell SonicWALL CDP system recovery tool wizard. Image recovery can be done directly from the CDP appliance to the restored system.
Comprehensive driver support
Comprehensive driver support helps ensure that the bootable rescue media supports new hardware and legacy systems alike.
Bootable rescue media
Bootable rescue media created on CD or USB flash key eliminates the need to locate additional CDs and floppies and contains everything required to begin restoration of the system.
Exact images of entire drives or any set of partitions
Exact images of entire drives or any set of partitions avoids the time-consuming task of locating application CDs and registration codes to reinstall programs.
Unique open-file snapshot technology
Unique open-file snapshot technology renders an exact image without shutting down a system, closing applications or interrupting operations.
Individual file and folder restoration
Individual file and folder restoration ensures there is no need to restore the whole partition or disk, and non-system partitions can be restored without a reboot.
Sector-by-sector "raw image" capability
Sector-by-sector "raw image" capability allows imaging and restoration of not only sectors with data, but also sectors that are free, whether or not they are directly supported by Dell SonicWALL CDP Universal System Recovery or corrupted.
Flexibly mountable BMR images
Flexibly mountable BMR images can be mounted in read-only mode or to a file system as a virtual drive, permitting users to open, create, save, copy, move, and delete backed up files or folders.
