Bare-Metal restore is the ability for the backup application to restore an entire server to a previous state directly from backup media.  To be truly a Bare-Metal a backup application must restore a block level disk image directly form from backup media _without_ requiring that the O/S or backup application be installed first.  Any easy way to identify if a backup application supports a real bare-metal restore process is to determine if it reads data at the file level or at the file system or raw disk block level.  Usually this can be determined by reading the feature list or documentation without ever even attempting a test bare-metal restore with real hardware and the vendor's application.

See Bare-Metal restore for more details.
