Bare Metal Recovery

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can recover an entire computer system to “bare metal” on the same hardware using configured bootable media. This way, you can easily restore an entire system to a different computer in the event of a disaster. Bare-metal recovery is done in the following stages:

  1. A backup of the source physical machine is created and saved in a supported Backup Repository.

  2. Bootable media is created in one of the following ways:

  3. The bootable media is copied onto a flash drive.

  4. The target physical machine is booted using the flash drive containing the bootable media.
