CBMR for Cohesity

Machine Recovery for Cohesity DataProtect Users

CBMR is tightly integrated with Cohesity marketplace. The management of CBMR is controlled through the Cohesity management interface.

CBMR allows you to perform a bare machine recovery of your operating system, applications and data direct from a CBMR backup of the system files. The recovery is fast and can be fully automated to protect your critical systems from the consequences of physical damage, human error or system failure. You can recover your protected systems to any point in time provided by the backup.

Simulated recoveries can be scheduled which fully automates the creation of the recovered machine and then runs test scripts to verify integrity and functionality.

Recovery schedules can be set up months in advance and planned so that the entire server infrastructure is tested within the desired time frame. The recovery machines are held in an isolated network and can be released after every simulation so storage is not permanently required.

Detailed reporting of each step of the recovery process highlights any problems encountered and provides an audit trail of successful results to provide assurance that DR procedures are effective.

CBMR is available through the Cohesity marketplace and re-sold globally by Cohesity’s channel partners. It is available for Windows, Linux, Solaris and AIX operating systems. CBMR is the recommended bare machine recovery solution for Cohesity DataProtect.

  • 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
