Product Description

To sustain your operations, your business, and even your brand, you need to recover from a system failure as quickly as possible. However, manual system recovery processes prolong system downtime - and potential losses.

Symantec System Recovery 2013 Linux Edition delivers superior backup and disaster recovery for Linux servers that enable businesses to recover from downtime or disasters in minutes. With patented Restore Anyware technology, IT administrators can rapidly restore exactly what they need, when and where they need it - including entire physical and virtual machines to bare metal or dissimilar hardware as well as files, folders, and granular application objects. Unlike other technologies, Symantec System Recovery also provides cross-platform Physical-to-Virtual (P2V), Virtual-to-Virtual (V2V), and Virtual to-Physical (V2P) recoveries, making it the perfect complement to physical and virtual environments.
