ABMR Bare Machine Recovery for Dell EMC Avamar

System Recovery for Dell EMC Avamar (ABMR)

ABMR lets you perform a complete bare machine recovery of your system direct from an Avamar backup. It also provides recovery assurance, as the Avamar software can be scheduled to run through a complete recovery process. This fully automates the creation of the recovered machine and then runs test scripts to verify integrity and functionality.

How ABMR works

ABMR lets you perform a complete bare machine recovery of your system direct from an Avamar backup. It also provides recovery assurance, as the Avamar software can be scheduled to run through a complete recovery process. This fully automates the creation of the recovered machine and then runs test scripts to verify integrity and functionality.

Schedules can be set up months in advance and planned so that the entire server infrastructure is tested over the course of the desired timeframe.

The recovery machines are held in an isolated network and can be released after every simulation, so storage is not permanently required. Detailed reporting highlights any problems encountered and provides an audit track of successful results.

Running a recovery is straightforward, following this simple process:

  1. Install ABMR on the client system to be protected.
  2. License the Avamar software using a trial or full license. The software will then gather configuration parameters, including details about the hard disks, operating system, storage controller, network adapter and network settings. Some of these details can be tailored.
  3. Perform a standard Avamar backup.
  4. Boot the recovery environment on the target system and monitor the automated restore process
  5. ABMR requires one license per system it protects and includes 12 months’ free support & maintenance.
