What do they want

• Simple solution to common problems

System to get the job done right

Doesn’t create a complicated mess


Our unique approach

• Use the best existing backup technologies and ideas…

• Optimize them to make sure they do what you need…

• Wrap them in a simple, easy to use system

• License it affordably



• Network protocol designed for centralized data storage • Easy : Remote diskspace appears as a local drive.  • Powerful: NTFS and VSS support • Fast: Low protocol overheads, block based • Low cost: No specialized hardware required



• Useful for backups because…

• iSCSI enables imaging backup to centralized network locations!

• So you get all the “local backup” benefits:

• “Incremental” storage for historical backups – lots of history

• Fast “incremental” source scanning if configured

• Plus the benefits of centralized backup

• Centralized management


iSCSI Support

1. Enter the IP address or  server name and click  “Search” 2. Select your target 3. Enter the path, and  optionally CHAP  Authentication. Then click “Test  connection…”


With BackupAssist…

• No surprise implementation, with smart data security features.

• Automatic connection to the iSCSI target before the backup, if it’s not already connected.

• The backup volume is hidden, and not exposed as a drive letter unless you want it to be.

• Automatic disconnection after the backup, to avoid accidental or malicious corruption


• QUESTION: How does Windows Recovery Environment support 

iSCSI Restores?

iSCSI Support


Introducing RecoverAssist

• Our very own bootable recovery environment for Server 2008 & Server 2008 R2, SBS 2008/2011 and Windows 7/Vista.

• A complete replacement for the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)

• Overcomes limitations and bugs in WinRE • Beta version available in November


Windows Recovery Environment

• It works… some of the time… • It’s a bit cumbersome

• It takes a while to learn how to use it • You have to be very skillful to use it


Recover Assist

• More reliable • More stable • Easier to use

• You can do things with it that you can’t with WinRE • Easier to use


Windows RE vs. RecoverAssist


Windows RE vs. RecoverAssist

BUT I can summarise it in 4 main points. • Create your own bootable recovery media

• Add drivers to your recovery environment (scsi,raid..) • Avoid common BSOD problems after recovery


Create your own bootable recovery media

• USB Flash drives • SD Cards


• ISO Image File

No need to install a Dvd drive in every server anymore!


So you don’t see this


Avoid common BSOD problems after recovery:

• Caused by different class of boot disk

• Can fix existing machine

restored with WinRE



Recover from backup locations not supported by


• iSCSI Target

• Container VHD


Let’s see how easy it is to recovery from iSCSI
