DVD Backup / Recovery Strategy

October 31, 2006

The big project here in the office right now is creating a customized Solaris boot DVD with the SUM/IT business applications already on the DVD. Currently, in order to restore a downed Solaris server it would be a two-step process. First, you would have to restore the Solaris OS from DVD and then second, your data would have to be restored from backup.

What is cool is that Sun provides a method for creating a customized DVD – all in one nice little package:
GRUB and the Solaris Operating System on x86 Platforms – A Guide to Creating a Customized Boot DVD

We are experimenting with it now – hopefully by the end of the week we will have a one-step solution to disaster recovery.
