New technology will restore Windows servers on different hardware than their original configurations.Veritas Software Corp. has new technology to restore Windows servers on different hardware than their original configurations, officials said Monday. The option comes in Bare Metal Restore 4.6, available by early June. "We do everything per Windows [application programming interfaces] and primarily having to do with the registry," said Richard Harrison, a product manager, in Austin, Texas.
With the new feature, administrators wont have to wait for an identical server to arrive. It is also useful in cases where the original equipment isnt made anymore. Changes could include different network and video adapters, storage, motherboards, CPU quantities and types, and components from companies other than the original.
