How ABMR works

Learn more about ABMR.

ABMR is a vital addition to any Dell Avamar installation providing all the necessary files to rebuild a system to its identical state preceding any disaster scenario.

When combined with the Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery Vault, AMBR provides the highest levels of protection and integrity for a company’s most valuable system configurations.

Without this addition, physical system recovery becomes a labour-intensive process as applications and configuration files need to be rebuilt manually.

Adding ABMR allows customers to leverage the resiliency of the Cyber Recovery Vault solution to protect and restore their vital systems, including all necessary configuration information. Systems can be restored directly from the vault to dissimilar hardware, or to alternative virtual or cloud recovery targets.
