Recovery In Management Console
The time has come to say goodbye to Cove Data Protection (Cove)'s classic dashboard UI. The classic UI will be retired in July. We encourage you to switch to our new dashboard UI as soon as possible for the best dashboard experience.
Management Console contains two services that can be used for disaster recovery:
- Recovery Testing - This service runs and provides a screenshot as proof that the device is recoverable
- Standby Image to Self-Hosted - This service performs continuous restore of a device to a Hyper-V or Local VHDX as configured in Add Recovery Locations
- Azure Recovery - Cove has two separate methods of recovering data to Microsoft Azure
- Restore to Azure - This service runs to restore data to a Virtual Machine as configured in Azure Recovery Locations on an on-demand basis
- Standby Image to Azure - runs a continuous restore of your data to Microsoft Azure and boots based on the frequency set during configuration of the plan
With these tools, we provide proof of recoverability and the ability to failover in case of a disaster.
The following requirements must be met:
- The following must be backed up:
- The full System State of the device
- The whole system disk
– C:\or another disk that has your operating system and that the OS boots from (the Files and Folders data source)
- For setup, you must be logged into the Backup console as a SuperUseror Manager
To manage devices and recovery locations, any other user role will suffice.
- You are required to enter the devices encryption key/security code, however, in cases where the device has been installed using Quick Installation of the Backup Manager you will be required to provide the passphrase instead
