Lair Services, Inc. offers a comprehensive BDR solution for Windows 2000, Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 servers. This reasonably priced, all-encompassing solution for small-to-midsize businesses provides:
- Very frequent backups ( every 15 minutes if required )
- Seamless off-site data storage
- Multiple restore points
- Standby server capabilities
- Advanced restoration options (file- and folder-level restorations) with Exchange message and mailbox recovery
- Bare-metal restorations to dissimilar hardware
The BDR-NAS device can be configured to backup multiple servers by partition or by logical drives. There are no file or folder-level exclusions, because a snapshot of the entire partition is taken at the block level on the hard drive.
Key Components Of The Device’s Technology Are
Recovering files and folders is a simple process where the entire image is mounted as a volume on the NAS device. The encryption is needed. Files can then be copied to the destination server over the network. We also provide utilities enabling your engineers to restore files, folders, Exchange mailboxes or messages and SQL tables and databases.
Virtualization (Physical to Virtual) Standby Server Functionality
The NAS device can “virtualize” failed servers while keeping the system in the same state as it was before the problem arose. No configurations are necessary. Once virtualized, the NAS will resume the backup schedule that was in effect before the failure.
Bare Metal Restore (Virtual to Physical)
When it comes time to restore the virtualized server back to physical hardware, our bare metal restore process allows restorations to dissimilar hardware.
On-site and Off-site Solution with Multiple Restore Points
Multiple NAS devices can be placed on a LAN. Each NAS device, depending on the model, can be configured to backup one single server or multiple servers.
Everything comes together in our NAS device to produce 15-minute incremental snapshots that safely reside within the device and are ready to be used to restore a file, a file folder, an email, or a database… all within five minutes.
What Happens If My Server Crashes?
Now let’s look at how our solution keeps your business running if, for instance, an e-mail server goes down.
Because the device takes snap shots every 15 minutes, administrators can choose a point in time shortly before the problem occurred and with just a few clicks of the mouse, this appliance allows you to activate it as a virtual server to keep business processes up and running while we diagnose the problem and plan a course of action for the down email server.
In the event of a catastrophic server failure, our business continuity solution also includes a boot CD that allows us to perform a bare metal restore on new hardware in a fraction of the time of a typical server rebuild. And, this NAS device restoration will allow you to eliminate the hardware abstraction layer during the restore process so that the new drivers can be loaded on the server replacement, no matter which server brand is used — giving you speedy recovery options in times of crisis.
