Many disaster recovery products use image or snapshot technology, but can they perform a bare metal restore in the event of an unrecoverable machine? UBDR Gold can, in as little as 15 minutes.

To recover a dead server, a user need only insert the universal UBDR Gold Restore CD, boot the machine and start the wizard to initiate a restore of a snapshot (image backup) with just a few clicks of the mouse. No advance setup is required. After restoring a snapshot, a machine is recovered 100 percent to its last backup state after a quick reboot. UBDR Gold also offers built-in encryption so users can fully comply with security requirements for backup media stored either on or off-site.

Customers also have the ability to cold boot a machine and either perform image or file based backups to literally every type of storage device: SAN, NAS, UNC path, local disk, TSM*, SFTP/FTP*, local/remote tape devices, and media libraries. Optional agents* for TSM, SFTP/FTP, and media libraries are available for a customizable solution.

In short, UBDR Gold uses UltraBac's ability to perform image backups, along with a Windows based universal boot CD environment, to restore one or more disk partitions even when no operating system is available.  UltraBac's disaster recovery products can be licensed for independent, stand-alone use, or they can be fully integrated with UltraBac's regular file-by-file backup and restore software.





UBDR Gold raises the bar in disaster recovery.  

UltraBac Disaster Recovery (UBDR) Gold uses snapshot (image) based backup and disaster recovery technology to provide lightning fast physical or virtual restores. The software works with every Windows server or workstation, and can be used to perform dissimilar hardware restores. UBDR Gold uses UltraBac's ability to perform live image backups, along with a WinPE boot CD or USB key, to restore one or more disk partitions - even to a larger capacity disk drive right out of the box. UltraBac's Locked File Backup Agent is also integrated with UBDR Gold to ensure open files are backed up safely during the image process. UBDR Gold can be licensed for independent, stand-alone use, or it can be fully integrated with UltraBac's regular file-by-file backup and restore software.


UBDR Gold provides customers with the ability to perform virtual based disaster recoveries using either VMware or Microsoft Virtual Server host machines. Optional agents for TSM, SFTP/FTP, and media libraries are also offered with UBDR Gold. Another strategic feature of Gold is its ability to cold boot a machine and perform image or file based backups to literally every type of storage device: SAN, NAS, UNC path, local disk, TSM, SFTP/FTP, USB/FireWire, local/remote tape devices, and media libraries. This means an administrator can boot a failed machine and safely back up data partitions before allowing a technician access to data that could be irretrievably lost during the repair effort.


True dissimilar hardware capability.   Perform dissimilar hardware restores with UBDR Gold's physical-to-physical (P2P) disaster recovery feature. This means, for example, if an HP server fails, a backed up OS image can be restored to a Dell server and successfully booted.


UBDR Gold was the first Windows backup software to offer physical-to-virtual (P2V) based disaster recoveries. This allows organizations to recover a server and emulate it virtually 100% in as little as 15 minutes. To perform a P2V recovery, simply create as many new virtual environments as required on your host virtual server. Then use UBDR Gold to boot into the recovery wizard. Recovering to a virtual environment is automatic and requires no special setup, pre-configuration, or other considerations. Gold also supports virtual-to-virtual (V2V) and virtual-to-physical (V2P) recoveries, providing users with every available virtual disaster recovery option.


Integrating SFTP and FTP into disaster recovery was another first for UBDR Gold. With an SFTP/FTP recovery, an image can be restored from a LAN, WAN, or the Internet. UBDR Gold is also unique in that it directly supports local tape, local libraries, remote tape, and remote libraries. The major advantage of image backups to disk is lightning fast disaster recovery. Using tape however, still has many strategic benefits. UltraCopy (another first to market product), UltraBac Software's optional disk-to-tape utility, offers inexpensive and redundant storage of unlimited numbers of backup copies for the ultimate in off-site data protection and disaster recovery.


Sophisticated customers also appreciate that UBDR Gold can be 100 percent scripted for both backups and restores. This means remote sites can be fully recovered automatically without any local administration. Unbootable servers can be quickly restored and brought back online. Instructing non-technical personnel through a difficult disaster recovery process is replaced with this seamless and completely automatic process.
