Improving Efficiency of Client Recovery: Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery and Intel vPro Technology-Based Clients
Today, the advanced backup and recovery services provided by Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery (BESR), coupled with innovative remote management services enabled by Intel vPro technology enabled management platforms, allow for more efficient operations than previously possible. Intel vPro technology brings advanced hardware-based remote management, networking and security features to the enterprise. This paper discusses key issues like Business drivers in client recovery operations, Optimal backup and recovery with Intel vPro technology-based clients, how this combination works through the use of an example scenario, Benefits of Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery and Intel vPro technology-based clients. This combination also allows for flexible recovery operations and enables time-saving responses to a wide array of common incidents. Restoring a system is not restricted to the original hardware; in fact, if hardware failures prevent full recovery. The combined technologies of Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery and Intel vPro technology put in place a scalable, flexible backup and recovery infrastructure that supports growing, increasingly complex enterprises emote booting than provided by other protocols, such as PXE From an efficiency perspective, IDE-R's key contribution is that it eliminates desk-side visits. IDE-R enables support personnel to remotely change the boot device of a failed PC. Instead of using the local hard drive or optical disk drive, IDE-R allows a device to boot from any network-accessible drive or ISO image.
