windows recovery to dissimilar hardware or virtual machine
Posted on 2012-03-21
I have a IBM 3650 server on which is installed windows 2003R2. I want to prepare a plan for recovery of the server in case of server hardware failure. I don't have the same hardware so I am looking for any solution which will give me ability to recover machine to dissimilar hardware or better to virtual machine(vmware). I checked some CDP software but I am not aware if they are the right choice. I also don't know what product to choose. It seems that there is a lot but I don't have any experience with them and I don't have enough time to try all of them.
Server can be down no more than 1 working day.
Any advice and experience from such type of software or any other options or opinions for solving this problem.
