Introducing NetVault Bare Metal Recovery Plug-ins

NetVault Bare Metal Recovery Plug-ins: at a glance

Quest® NetVault® Bare Metal Recovery Plug-ins reduce the time required to recover a failed disk drive and restore operations. Online full-partition backups and offline block-level backups can be scheduled as an extension to your existing backup routine. If a server fails, you can use the provided minimal operating system (OS) to recover a system that has no functioning OS. After it is in a state to be restored, the Quest NetVault Backup (NetVault Backup) web-based user interface (WebUI) is used to restore the most recent system image. NetVault Bare Metal Recovery improves your ability to meet Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and service-level agreements (SLAs) by eliminating much of the manual intervention and guesswork commonly associated with the task of rebuilding a disk. By automating system recovery — including recovery of operating systems, network settings, system settings, applications, disk partitions, and data — NetVault Bare Metal Recovery ensures that the disk rebuild is completed correctly.
