Next Release of Acronis Backup & Recovery® Will Feature Remote Access to Cloud Backup From Any Web Device, and Disk to Disk to Cloud Staging for Faster Backup

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, August 27, 2012 — / — VMworld 2012 – Acronis, a leading provider of disaster recovery and data protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced at VMworld 2012 that an upcoming feature in the next release of its flagship Acronis Backup & Recovery® platform will give IT organizations a new edge in data protection by allowing them to better leverage the cloud for backup and recovery. The ability to remotely recover files from a cloud backup through a web-based interface offers the “anywhere-access” benefits of a cloud-based backup strategy to enterprises of all sizes. In addition, Acronis has reduced the time and effort required for using the cloud as a backup target by introducing disk to disk to cloud staging into the Unified Platform.

Acronis is demonstrating the cloud capabilities of the latest Acronis Backup & Recovery beta build at booth #1701, opposite the Solutions Theatre in the VMworld 2012 exhibition hall. The new version release is expected to be available by the end of Q3 2012.

Using the cloud as a backup target has previously been a manual process requiring a longer backup window. The enhanced staging features, being introduced by Acronis, are providing automation of disk to disk to cloud backup, shortening the backup window for the live physical or virtual machines, and simplifying management of both destinations. IT administrators can now get the benefits of both local and cloud backup in a comprehensive, unified experience.

“As enterprise environments become more diverse and management options more complex, IT leaders are looking for cost-effective and easy-to-use solutions that enable them to manage greater portions of their infrastructures through a single pane of glass,” commented Dmitri Joukovski, vice president of product management for Acronis. “The volume and velocity of corporate content creation and mobile computing adoption are introducing new data challenges for IT organizations, and, as a result, they need uncomplicated strategies for data protection and storage optimization. Acronis is addressing these needs with solutions optimized for increasing enterprise cloud adoption.”

To further reduce backup and disaster recovery management complexity, Acronis is adding support for Microsoft® Exchange, Active Directory®, SQL Server® and SharePoint® within the Acronis Backup & Recovery® unified platform.

Acronis Backup & Recovery® is a unified platform, from which an organization can centrally manage data protection and disaster recovery tasks for physical, virtual and cloud environments from a single management console. This can offer a dramatic reduction in management overhead and total cost of ownership, as the platform can manage Windows® and Linux, and all major hypervisors including Red Hat® Enterprise Virtualization, VMware® vSphere™, Windows® Hyper-V™, Citrix® and Parallels®, and integrates with Acronis Cloud storage in one installation.
