The continued success of your business depends on being able to restore your servers to its full capacity quickly. This backup solution gives you fast local access to critical files that reduces downtime in the event of a disaster.
IDrive BMR is an onsite backup/restore solution. With this, you can perform full, incremental and manual backup of a computer including multiple hard drives and partitions. The backed up data is saved in the form of a single file (known as an Image) onsite. You can maintain a ready-to-use, bare metal restore (BMR) capability with each file-based backup. Cloud replication lets you transfer backups stored on your IDrive BMR server to your cloud account. This advanced solution lets you restore backed up data to multiple computers at the same time.
Bare metal restores and full hard disk imaging makes you rest easy knowing that in the event of data loss you are protected. You can restore your entire system along with all its settings at once. No need for rearranging data, reinstalling software or reconfiguring any system or application settings.
