BACKUP AND STORAGE MANAGEMENT FOR BUSINESS USE
Acronis Backup Advanced suite
Unified backup and recovery solutions for multi-system environments
Acronis Backup Advanced delivers best-in-class protection for your entire environment, regardless of your setup: physical servers, virtual machines, workstations, or all of the above.
All products in the suite deliver the fastest, most efficient backup and recovery available. When disaster strikes, recover an entire server—with all data intact—in minutes! You can also restore files, folders, and applications to any location in record time.
Thanks to Acronis AnyData technology, all products in the suite can work alone, or combine seamlessly under a single management console. The result? Customizable solutions with room for future growth.
Disk Image Technology
Disk-level snapshots save complete images of a disk or volume in one simple step (including the operating system, applications, and data). This technology works for both physical and virtual machines.
Our unified dashboard lets you manage all backup operations for both physical and virtual machines from a single, central location. Assign backup plans to one or more machines, review status updates, and receive alerts—all from one console!
Business Applications Protection
Our patented disk image technology enables consistent backup of running applications. This allows you to backup Exchange , SQL Server, SharePoint, and Active Directory data as you work. Granular application data may be restored without taking systems offline, protecting your business from expensive downtime.
Compression and Deduplication.
Deduplication can be run on either the source or target side to minimize data movement and maximize utilization of storage and network infrastructure. This helps reduce storage costs and minimizes network load.
Multiple Backup Destinations
Store your backups in up to 5 different locations to ensure more flexible, reliable recovery. Combine local disks, attached storage, tape, network storage, and/or cloud locations to minimize your storage costs and provide multiple recovery options in the case of disaster.
Complete Virtual Server Protection
Acronis Backup Advanced products support any popular virtualization technology, providing data protection and migration capabilities between various hypervisors and physical machines.
Dissimilar Hardware Restore
With Acronis Universal Restore technology, you can bare-metal restore your systems to different hardware (booting from bootable media or PXE server). This lets you quickly recover your entire server and minimize expensive downtime.
Backup Operations Scheduling
Acronis backups run automatically based on your specific schedule, but they also offer the flexibility of being triggered by specific events (user logging on/off, machines being powered on/off, and so on).
Acronis Backup Advanced products have a set of predefined, industry-standard schemes (such as Grandfather-Father-Son or Tower-of-Hanoi). Custom schemes may be configured with advanced settings.
Catalogues and Indexing
Backup indexing and centralized catalogues help you quickly find a particular version of disk image, file, folder, application database, or individual data item—even if backups are split across different storage media.
Backup operations may be limited with network bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling to minimize the impact of running backups during production hours.
Our disk image technology allows you to create an exact replica of the system and user data, and then restore that replica to a new drive in case of critical drive failure.
Encrypted Storage and Communication
Critical backup data can be encrypted with industry-standard 256-bit AES algorithm. All data transmissions are performed over an SSL-encrypted channel by default.
Incremental and Differential Backups
Our incremental & differential backups identify only the changes made since the last backup, significantly reducing backup time and the impact on network usage and backup storage.
Wake-on-LAN functionality will automatically turn on a machine when it is time to run a backup. This ensures execution of the backup plan for that machine, independent of its power state.
Validation and Consolidation
Manual or scheduled automatic validation of backups ensures system and user data are recoverable. Consolidation of incremental backups provides the ability to save additional storage space.
Storage and Retention Policies
Backup data may be automatically moved between various storage locations, and older backups may be deleted to save space for newly created backups.
Simplified Product Licensing
Acronis Backup Advanced products are packaged to provide everything you need to protect your server, applications, and workstations. A Universal License is also available for larger environments that includes access to all products in the Acronis Backup Advanced suite.
In the modern world, businesses have no time to waste restoring business critical systems and lost data. Applications should be always available as any downtime will immediately and negatively affect business. Acronis Backup Advanced suite ensure the fastest possible recovery time and minimizes this cost.
Heterogeneous Environment Data Protection
Companies today typically have mixed environments that include both physical and virtual servers, Windows and Linux machines, and various business-critical applications in both virtual and physical environments. Acronis Backup Advanced suite provides specific solutions for each workload, while also allowing IT professionals the ability to manage all systems in a unified way with a easy-to-use, centralized management console.
Replacing a physical server or migrating physical machines to a virtual environment can be painful! Acronis image backup technology lets you quickly restore image backups of one server to another server. This same technology allows you to migrate images of physical machines to different hypervisors (including Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer, Oracle VM or RHEV/KVM). You can also migrate virtual machines from one hypervisor to another, from physical to virtual, and from virtual to physical.
Acronis AnyData technology provides complete protection across devices, operating systems, virtual environments, applications, and storage locations. . The power of the AnyData technology is to seamlessly blend products from Acronis Backup Advanced Suite in any combination to become a single data protection platform with a common user interface, unified policies, and centralized management.
Coming from a long background in the computer industry, I give Acronis True Image my highest honor: IT WORKS. Before you think that "rating" is nothing special, think about all of the products you buy and install that function acceptably, but have stability issues, or are slow, or have features that don't really quite work, or aren't intuitive so you never really use them, or whatever. True Image does what it is supposed to do without any drama - and when what it is "supposed to do" is arguably one of the most important things there is - protecting your priceless and unrecoverable data - that is a big deal.

Just bought the 4th Generation of your excellent recovery software. Your software has completely recovered my PC's on 4 occasions when previous attempts in the earlier years using Norton Ghost had failed.
Marko Tarvainen, at global telecom specialist Finn Telecom
Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 is a ground-breaking solution. Acronis has always provided speedy and reliable backup and recovery technology, but the new integrated data deduplication and impressive management tools makes this product unique. The software deduplication offers similar compression rates to enterprise class applications and has vastly decreased the volume of backups, in turn reducing storage space requirements. The solution is fast and does not impact on the speed of the backup process. In addition, the new central management console and intuitive interface makes it much easier to oversee tasks. I can confidently recommend Acronis' best in class, reliable and affordable disaster recovery solutions.
Andrew Chan, MIS Executive, Gucci Singapore
Installing and implementing Acronis True Image was a breeze; so was managing the backups and accessing the recovery features. The software could perform both disk image and conventional backup functions but unlike legacy backup solution, there was no need to purchase additional agents for different applications. Acronis True Image is vital to our disaster recovery process as it ensures that our business data could be retrieved in the shortest time.
Lim Say Ho, Network Administrator, NTUC Income
Acronis True Image really frees up all the staff’s time because backups are performed even when the system is live so nobody really knows. The staff can choose to have the backup files stored in the Acronis Secure Zone, a special partition in the same hard disk. The staff can also store them in a variety of storage media including options like external USB hard disks, additional internal hard disk, CDs and DVDs. Overall, I’d say Acronis True Image is the cost effective BMR (bare metal restore) solution for Windows platform.
I’ve accumulated a lifetime of work, photographs, data, contracts, financial information and important documents on my home PC. I’ve also spent countless hours installing software applications on my computer. Acronis True Image allows me to create an exact image of my system thus protecting all my life’s treasures from a system crash or virus infection. The new Acronis True Image 10 Home reduces backup time and storage by excluding paging and hibernate files from the disk image backup; optimizes my PC performance by changing the disk imaging process priority; verifies the disk image before a system restore and checks the file system after performing one, providing comprehensive data protection. Since the day I started using Acronis True Image, I no longer worry about data corruption, computer crash or virus infection.

David Thomson, VP Information Technology, Cowan Insurance Group
Cowan required a backup and disaster recovery approach that would have no performance impact to our production systems. Any backup operation that affected the system performance would have adversely affected our ability to assist clients and business partners. We need access to our databases in a timely manner. Acronis provided us with a solution that should help reduce our storage and data management costs while enabling us to respond more quickly to changing business needs.
Mel Mason, Managing Director of Technology Services, Experian.
An offline server costs us thousands of dollars per minute in downtime, and potentially a lot more. That’s why Experian required a backup and disaster recovery approach that would reduce a server downtime as much as possible and provide the best possible return on investment (ROI). We explored a number of products, and with its unique disk imaging backup technology, Acronis True Image Server provided the fastest bare-metal server recovery.
