About Windows Server and the benefits of cloning Windows Server

Windows Server is a brand name for a group of server operating systems released by Microsoft, including Windows Server 2022, 2019, 2016, 2012, 2008, etc. Windows servers are more powerful than windows desktop versions and are primarily designed for enterprise environments to handle corporate networking, Internet/intranet hosting, databases, enterprise-scale messaging and similar functions more efficiently. The installation process of Windows server is similar to that of Windows desktop version, but the configuration process of network, database and other enterprise applications is usually very complicated and time-consuming, which is unacceptable when there is an urgent need to restore service operation. The benefits of cloning a Windows server include the following:

✦ 1. Clone Windows server as a backup to reduce the time of installing applications & configuring Windows server

✦ 2. Quickly restore the system when the Windows server fails to reduce the loss caused by service interruption

✦ 3. Upgrade the disk on which the Windows server is running to a larger disk or upgrade to a faster SSD
