Bare metal backup, also called bare metal restore, is a technique that speeds the process of data backup and recovery. When a server goes down, a bare metal backup quickly restores the operating system, applications and other software directly onto the “bare metal” of a newly provisioned server, even if that server is of a completely different type.
Bare metal backup and recovery solves the usual problems that occur when you quickly try to restore a protected physical system to a newly provisioned system. Normally you would have to install the operating system on the new server first and then install the applications one by one, digging up all the media, license keys and other information you need to finish the installation. The process can take days or even weeks to restore your original services.
Bare metal backup is much faster, but it requires a sophisticated backup and restore solution. That’s why so many enterprises seeking to implement bare metal recovery turn to Unitrends.

This approach provides significant advantages for Windows physical and GOS-level virtual systems. Unitrends bare metal backup solution provides:
Unitrends also provides a patent pending meta–bare metal technology for unified architectures.
