A BDR or Backup and Disaster Recovery Server is a computer that stores your backups and in the event of an emergency can function as your server. It makes continuous backups throughout the day allowing minimal data loss when things go wrong. It is configured to run your server as a virtual while you recover from a crash.
Some of the Key benefits are ~
- Virtualized disaster recovery platform – run your hardware server as a virtual while you recover from a server crash
- Onsite Backup for quick restore and recovery
- Offsite Backup for redundancy
