Software Review

Bare Metal Restore are the three words in field of servers listening which many system administrators throw there hands up in air and runs for hills. We know that re-installing the OS takes hours. And just single mistake can run the process into trouble. Then you have to again restore all the software’s on the same platform of hardware.

In day today’s backup application like NetBackup, EMC’s Retrospect, etc.can restore the lost file easily but this are not the recommended tools for restoration of server or any PC system. 

Symantec's Backup Exec System Recovery 12 is the perfect tool and the only product used for recovering Windows system. We can too purchase this product along with other Backup Exec Suite tools. 

It’s a true fact that OS are always prone to failures and restore of this systems are not always successful. Symantec's Backup Exec is more polished software than its competitors such as Acronis True Image; this software lacks restoration of web based files. 

This version provides support for x64 platforms, VISTA, MS Virtual Servers. It also comes with facility to manage multi servers from one single location.
