Adaptable System Recovery for Linux: How to Restore Backups Onto Hardware That May Not Be Identical to the Original System
A system failure renders a system inoperative. Causes can range from the failure of a single disk drive to a fire in the computer room. These catastrophic events can cause not only a system to fail but destroy the system and perhaps even an entire data center. Such events don't happen every day, but it only takes one catastrophe to destroy a business. While a failed disk drive may be easy to plan for, the loss of system hardware is another story. Most businesses do not have a mock-data center waiting in standby with duplicate idle hardware for quick replacement.
