Backup Bulk Data To Cloud In Less Than A Week With BMR Express

June 19, 2019

IDrive® BMR offers image-based onsite backup and bare-metal restore solutions. It lets you backup and restore entire systems – OS and applications included – without any additional hardware or software. Even better? You can transfer your local backups on the BMR server to cloud using Cloud Seeding via BMR Express and protect your data against natural disasters.

The BMR Express service lets you seed large amounts of data stored on your BMR server to cloud through the shipment of the data to the data center in external storage devices. The USP of this service is that it utilizes zero Internet bandwidth and lets you transfer large volumes of data within a week or less.

How Do I Avail The BMR Express Service?
Place an order for the BMR express device with details of the size of the data to be backed up, your contact and shipping information. The BMR device and accessories will be shipped to you with detailed instructions. Transfer backups of your physical machines and VMware server to the device and ship it back to IDrive.

Is My Data Safe During Transit?
The data in the storage device will be encrypted using the same default or private key that was set on your BMR device, ensuring your data is secure at all times.

What Next?
After the BMR Express transfer is completed, you can ensure that your cloud repository remains updated with scheduled cloud replications.

What Are The Other Features Offered By IDrive BMR?

  • Local Image-based Backup - Backup entire hard drives or multiple partitions as a single ‘image’ file, with recovery points for the entire system.
