System Recovery—Breaking through the Dissimilar Hardware Restore Challenge
What is your recovery-time objective (RTO)? Your RTO, the maximum amount of time it should take to bring a service back online, will determine which of the approaches presented in table 2 you should consider.
Many systems fit into the medium criticality category but lack a viable technology solution that makes budgetary sense. The missing capability is a full, rapid recovery to dissimilar hardware. Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery, with its Restore Anyware capability, is the answer for systems that must be recovered in minutes, not hours or days, to whatever hardware or virtual system is available. Using Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery, administrators can achieve medium-criticality objectives while keeping costs comparable to a low-criticality approach.
