You might be new to the role of administrator. Or, you might be new to the world of IT, servers, networks, and data. Either way, there’s one tool that you must get to know because one day it could save your company, your data, and maybe even your job.

That tool to which I speak makes it possible to clone your servers. What these tools do is make it possible to create exact clones of your servers or your data, so that, in case disaster strikes, you have a working copy to start from.

Which tool should you use? It should come as no surprise that there are more than enough cloning tools to choose from, some are free (and even open-source) while others have an associated cost and are proprietary. The good news is, either way, you go you’re probably going to wind up with a solution that does exactly what you want—save the day.
