backing up sbs2011 including exchange, system state and bare metal disaster recovery
Posted on 2014-01-17
We are installing a new sbs2011 single server and are looking for the most cost effective simple solution.
We already have a Netgear NAS box and would like to deposit the backup files on this.
Can anyone advise whether the built in Microsoft Backup utility has the ability to write to a NAS box, and if so, how flexible is the recovery?
ie, in the event of a total loss situation, can we do a full recover straight from the NAS box, rather than having to install and configure the OS first, and then restoring data?
If it cannot do this, does anyone have any suggestions as to a simple, cost effective solution to provide this?
We have used Yosemite in the past, but found it to be over complex.
Any suggestions welcome.
