BackupChain Backup Software is an all-in-one, complete Windows Server and Windows PC Backup Solution. It’s perpetually licensed and installs and runs without an internet connection. BackupChain includes mainly:

For immediate recovery, users can either boot directly from the backup or mount the backup image. Disk images are easily mountable within Windows or accessible through BackupChain’s main interface. Furthermore, swift recovery is facilitated by creating a new virtual machine linked to the disk image files generated by BackupChain. This allows users to promptly boot up the virtual machine directly from the image backup folder. Many users opt to set up a backup server with VMware or Hyper-V, sharing a folder where other servers deposit their disk images. Virtual machines are preconfigured and linked to the disk image files, ready for deployment. In the event of production server failures, a simple click enables the direct booting of the virtual machine in Hyper-V on the backup server
