Hardware Independent Restore (HIR)

HIR technology allows for accelerated recovery to the same system, to dissimilar hardware, or to and from virtual environments. This means that network connections,settings, and most software applications can be restored quickly to replacement machines, such as servers and workstations, so that they appear to the client to be unaffected by system failure.

HIR features also make system migration to a new server or consolidation to a virtual environment a straightforward process. In the event of an operating system modification, data can be transferred predictably and efficiently.
