BACKUP PROTECTION FOR PHYSICAL AND VIRTUAL LINUX SERVERS

Linux data backup and disaster recovery is at the core of what we do best. Storix 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 bare-metal recovery 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 recovery the entire Linux system to dissimilar hardware, storage, or virtual environments as well as perform individual file restores from a full system backup.

MORE THAN AN INSURANCE POLICY

Whether you are backing up 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 hardware migration and provisioning/cloning scenarios.
