There are different kinds of disasters you may need to recover from. At R1Soft we consider any situation requiring you to take your server off-line to Restore as Disaster Recovery, and we call this Bare-Metal Restore. You typically want to perform a Bare-Metal Restore any time you need to Restore more than just a handful of files.
There are two options for performing a Bare-Metal Restore.
Disaster Recovery Boot Media (Version 3.18.1 and higher) supports the following two (2) Recovery Methods for both Windows and Linux Bare-Metal Restores.
To use this method, you need a special "boot" server running the services required for PXE Environment to work - DHCP and TFTP, as well as NFS service. Having this "boot" server and R1Soft CDP Server, you will be able to carry out a hands-free, fully automated Disaster Recovery and re-deployment system. For servers which provide remote access to the server console, it can be done via IP-KVM solutions. This method does not require physical access to the server.
Each of the listed options has two sub-options:
