Axcient Unveils Bare Metal Restore Capabilities for Workstations
Axcient's Bare Metal Restore feature allows for the backup and restore of laptop and desktop images.Data backup, business continuity and disaster recovery services specialist Axcient announced the latest feature of its complete data protection platform, Bare Metal Restore for workstations. This new development extends backup and restoration to user desktops and laptops-the company's solutions are typically aimed at MSPs (Managed Service Providers) and their SMB (small and midsize business) customers. Axcient's BMR for workstations allows administrators the ability to restore entire desktop and laptop images with all the associated data, applications and settings to a new device with minimal setup or administration. The company said this helps save IT administrators days of manual recovery and lost productivity and helps ensure uptime for their customers. Axcient offers BMR for workstations as an agentless solution and is fully integrated with a unified service for backup, continuity and disaster recovery built on one platform.
"Over 60 percent of all critical customer data resides on workstations, and yet, most companies don't protect their laptops and desktops with nearly the same vigilance that they protect their servers," said Justin Moore, CEO of Axcient. "This powerful enhancement expands our data protection and business continuity features to cover all vital systems from the laptop to the server, and furthers our mission to provide seamless data and application uptime with unparalleled ease of use."
