Physical to Virtual - Server Backup
Posted on 2013-06-26
I am looking to setup a disaster recovery setup.
We currently have two offices.
One sited on one side of a road, one on the other side.
Both are connected via a fibreoptic link.
Both buildings have Domain computers in them.
The 1st building - Building A is the main one with all the servers inside it.
The 2nd building - Building B is lets say a sister, it has just 4 pcs, a NAS and a backup AD server.
We would like to have the servers from Building A convert to Virtual Hard Disk at night to a specified location within Building A.
Then we would manually copy them over via a script to Building B (giving an offsite backup)
We are looking for software, that can fully backup any type of server to VHD, we have just Windows operating systems Servers, 2003, 2008
Max size of any of the servers is 2TB
Lowest is about 150GB
We would need software that would install on either 1 beast hyper V machine that would manually point to a pc and turn it into a snapshot style VHD or full VHD then do incrementals there after.
Software that installs on each Server individually and nightly turns the Server into VHD and saves it to one network location.
We are willing to pay a hefty price for this software, but is it available?
