Linux Backup and Recovery

Faster Recovery for Virtual and Physical Servers


Linux data backup and disaster recovery is at the core of what we do best. System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin) provides Systems Administrators the peace of mind that mission critical Linux servers can be recovered in their entirety without having to reinstall the operating system. Our Linux backup capability includes a process we call Adaptable System Recovery (ASR). With ASR, a file-based backup of the entire Linux system is created along with customizable recovery media. Unlike image-based backups, you can restore the entire Linux server to dissimilar hardware, storage, or virtual environments as well as perform individual file restores from a single backup.


Whether need a Linux backup and recovery solution for Red Hat, Oracle Linux, SUSE, or Debian, SBAdmin understands the various options available for configuring storage. To reliably restore the system from bare-metal, we have become experts in LVM, Software RAID, and Device-Mapper Multipath devices. SBAdmin’s ASR technology is flexible enough to allow you to make changes to the configurations during system recovery. For this reason, SBAdmin is also an ideal solution for P2V, hardware migration, and provisioning/cloning scenarios.
