Adaptable System Recovery (ASR) for Linux: How to Restore Backups onto Hardware That May Not Be Identical to the Original System

Cover Image
This paper will introduce the concept of Adaptable System Recovery (ASR) for Linux systems. ASR makes it possible to easily adapt a system backup to fit new hardware by enabling a simple means for reconfiguring drivers, resizing and relocating filesystems, and restoring storage configuration.

ASR is a kind of improved Bare-metal Recovery (BMR) that makes a Linux or AIX System Administrator's life easier in the following ways:

  • Easily restore a system backup onto newer hardware than what the backup was made from
  • Quickly restore a backup onto a virtual system
  • Effortlessly clone/provision multiple systems, even if the hardware is not the same
  • Smoothly change software configuration of a system for improved performance
  • Efficiently perform hardware migration or upgrades
