is system state backup the same as ASR?

Is the system state backup the same as performing an ASR, except the ASR makes the disk?   Would ASR be the preferred backup method for our 2003-R2 DC?

with system state you need to install the OS first then restore. with ASR you don't I think, check those links:

both methods are not good for servers. I would recommand third party software such as acronis or other cheaper ones, but they would be much better and will save you time. hope this helps!
