target - Backup & restore tool that can be put on a PXE server so that a client can be booted via network and support IBM/HP blade machines
I hope that I ask the right question, there are allot of backup & restore tools so I little confused and I want to fit the backup & restore tool for blade HW ( to support network blade drivers )
In my company we have blade machine – as HS21 type .
On all blade machine we install red-hat Linux OS ( version 5.x and up ) ,
then we installed application on each Linux
So after we have complete machine with Linux + app on each server in the blade HW we intend to clone each of the blade servers ( disk clone )
We already have PXE server so disk cloning (backup / restore) will be via PXE server
- backup & restore application must run on the PXE server - PXE server is linux machine
- backup & restore USER INTERFACE must be from Linux machine side (IBM Blade HW)
There are allot of backup & restore tools as clonezilla or acronics
But what we need is the best Reliability tool
and its must be very friendly user interface GUI , and also free software
Please advice what our options ?
