Symantec System Recovery 2013 R2 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.
This donation provides one license, which allows an organization to back up any number of devices. Only one license is required per organization.
Benefits for Organizations
Regular backups can protect your organization against a data-loss catastrophe. If you have experience with system administration, you can restore an entire system or individual files and folders if a disaster renders servers inoperable.
- Flexible recovery point creation: You can create recovery points as needed or schedule them to be created automatically.
- Restoration of individual files: If only certain files need to be recovered, you can browse the recovery point to restore individual files, Exchange messages, and SharePoint documents.
- Secondary backup locations: System Recovery supports secondary backup locations, which are often essential when primary on-site backups are inaccessible or unrecoverable.
Free Management Console
The System Recovery Management Solution is free for any organization with a valid Symantec System Recovery license. It provides a centralized management console for organizations 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.
