3 What is BMR?Bare Machine Recovery (BMR) is a term used for the recovery of a machine to new (bare) hardware. Recovery includes the operating system and application configurations. A rebuild can take several hours and can require a high level of technical knowledge.Machine failure may be caused by a failure of the server hardware (disk or controller failure, physical damage, loss of power etc.) or a corruption of the operating system or applications (virus, user or disk errors etc.)Regular recovery does not provide BMR functionality and System Administrators therefore are required to manually reinstall and configure the operating systems, middleware and applications. A regular recovery process can take hours and have many steps that require technical documentation, license keys and installation disks and knowledge.
4 Products All BMR products support Windows, Linux, AIX and Solaris CBMR (Cristie Bare Machine Recovery)TBMR (Bare Machine Recovery for TSM)NBMR (NetWorker Bare Machine Recovery)ABMR (Avamar Bare Machine Recovery)CM (CloneManager)All BMR products support Windows, Linux, AIX and Solaris
5 Introducing CBMR Provides Bare Machine Recovery Sold by IBM and leading resellers worldwideStandalone BMR product that can integrate with TSM and many other Storage Management and Backup and Restore solutionsRecovers direct from stored backupsCan migrate physical and virtual machinesCBMR offers one common recovery infrastructure and management. No need to deploy multiple OS specific recovery tools
