File-level recovery on its own, while an important mainstay in data protection best practices, is an incomplete strategy when it comes to meeting today’s stringent recovery time objectives (RTOs) for complete system recovery. Whether it’s a physical or virtual machine, the time necessary to “rebuild” the server stack and re-establish configuration settings can delay actual data recovery.
System-level recovery can enhance or even eliminate manual, operator-driven recovery and deliver significant benefits to IT organizations. This paper will investigate what’s at risk, where system-level recovery fits relative to current data protection approaches, the impact system-level recovery can have on IT’s ability to meet RTOs and RPOs, and the potential of system-level recovery to reduce costs.
