Symantec System Recovery 2011 is a backup and recovery solution that uses disk imaging technology to protect servers. It takes snapshots of entire hard disks that can be saved to almost any type of storage media or converted to virtual disks. When recovery is needed, these snapshots (called recovery points) can be restored to either the same hardware configuration or a different hardware setup.
Regular backups can protect your organisation against a data-loss catastrophe. With Symantec System Recovery, you can restore an entire system or individual files and folders if a disaster renders servers inoperable.
The System Recovery Management Solution is free for any organisation with a valid Symantec System Recovery license. It provides a centralised management console for organisations administering System Recovery on multiple computers distributed across one or more locations. Symantec recommends it for managing 20 or more servers. It must be installed on a computer running Windows Server.
Symantec System Recovery is one of a family of Symantec enterprise-level backup applications. For a comparison of the applications offered through Connecting Up, see the Guide to Symantec Recovery and Backup Products.
