Dallas, Texas – (The Hosting News) – August 26, 2009 – Web hosting virtual data center services provider, SoftLayer, has begun offering EVault Bare Metal Restores (BMR), as an advanced disaster recovery capability.
Designed to enable customers to completely restore servers to a bare metal state after an operating system or hardware failure, servers are restored to the latest system image safely stored in a secure SoftLayer repository.
Andrew Maten, Director of IT Systems at SoftLayer remarked, ”Everything we offer is about giving our customers more flexibility, confidence, and control. EVault BMR is a powerful, no-nonsense tool for getting systems back up quickly without losing data or functionality.”
EVault BMR is available for Microsoft Windows systems with SoftLayer’s standard EVault offering. For only $20/month it provides a wide range of benefits, including the capability to:
- Restore systems to a select point-in-time
- Restore systems from image or file-based backups
- Restore systems from EVault backups
- Launch recovery transactions to restore data without a bootable system
The solution provides a more efficient and more reliable alternative to manual restores, and can be used in conjunction with regular backups as well as for data migration. System administrators can choose to execute full system restores or to restore individual files. As with all SoftLayer services, EVault BMR can be ordered and setup through the SoftLayer Customer Portal.
