I have searched a lot about my question an decided to try here also:
for ex. i'm running a hp server for a company and i'm responsible of maintenance whatever happens.
if the server die (mobo .. etc) and i must wait maybe 1 week before a replacement is available the company can't work and what can i do in order to give them a viable solution to work with all the data from the f..ked server? ( data is stored in 5 hdd so i don't think i'll loose it all )
i was thinking if is possible to make an image of OS and use it in another pc running as a virtual pc; of course a different hardware maybe implied and in my conception to run the server as emulation on this pc to keep the business alive for the company.
is this possible or other viable option exist?
