Full System Recovery

  • Simplify FSR by restoring operating system information, any installed software or updates and hot fixes simultaneously with the recovery of filesystems: ext2, ext3, ext4, xfs, vfat, fat.
  • Avoid the cost of transferring data to and from Azure by performing a bare metal recovery to an automatically created virtual machine in Azure.
  • Benefit from improved performance as data has no need to be transferred via a local machine, an even bigger advantage if the recovery is initiated from a storage platform also in Azure.
