CBMR

Cristie’s Backup and Recovery solution

CBMR is a standalone, easy-to-use backup and recovery solution that provides full protection for servers, data files and databases. It is also provides reliable and speedy BMR, enabling you to restore critical servers from scratch within minutes.

As a standalone backup and recovery solution, CBMR does not require any third party backup software. However, it can also be used in conjunction with Cohesity DataProtect and IBM Spectrum Protect (TSM). In addition, you can also use CBMR as a flexible and scalable resource for server migration. 

Available for Windows, Linux, Solaris and AIX, CBMR has been adopted by numerous customers worldwide for:

  • Backup and recovery in multiple industries, predominantly finance (banks) and retail
  • Server migration from physical and virtual environments to dissimilar hardware
  • Protecting IT infrastructure at remote offices, branch locations and small data centres

Operating Systems

With support for the latest and legacy Windows, Linux, AIX and Solaris operating systems.

Dissimilar Environments

With our unique dissimilar environment technology, you can recover to any physical, cloud or virtual environment.

Automation

In a disaster recovery scenario, you don’t have time to sit and recover each server manually. CBMR supports fully automated recoveries via the Cristie Virtual Appliance or standalone.

Solution Highlights

  • Rapid recovery of an identical copy of your machine (including OS, applications and data); which can be automated
  • Multiple servers can be recovered simultaneously and a whole data centre can be recovered in just a few hours
  • File by file backup; no need for a disk image
  • Incremental file based backups using ‘forward incremental’ technology
  • Backups can be encrypted and compressed, increasing the security of your data and saving space on your network
  • Recoveries can be made to dissimilar hardware and to virtual and cloud machines
  • Snapshotting – for point-in-time restores; create a backup with minimal disruption which is then backed up away from the live system
  • System recovery and server migrations can be fully automated and controlled remotely
  • Easy-to-use interface means that no specialist IT skills are required by the end user
  • Tailoring available to configure systems such as host name and IP address on target machine
  • Easily achieve your recovery RTOs and RPOs
