Acronis Backup & Recovery® for vCloud Gives Service Providers and Enterprises First-of-Its-Kind Complete Self-Service Backup of vCloud Virtual Machines
SAN FRANCISCO – (VMworld 2013) August 27, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ — VMworld®–Acronis, a leading provider of physical, virtual and cloud backup solutions, today announced the release of Acronis Backup & Recovery® for vCloud®, enabling enterprises of various size and service providers to complement VMware® vCloud Director® with self-service backup and recovery. It allows tenants and administrators to eliminate downtime and protect their virtual machines in public, private and hybrid clouds. Using Acronis’ innovative technology, service providers can now build a complete infrastructure-as-a-service offering using vCloud.
Co-founder and new CEO Serguei Beloussov brings his knowledge of service provider business, from more than ten years as the CEO of Parallels®, to Acronis’ expertise in backup. With more than 50 advanced backup technologies released to date, Acronis is now enabling backup-as-a-service with Acronis Backup & Recovery for vCloud. While VMware vCloud Director allows tenants to control their VMs directly, Acronis’ new solution provides them with additional full self-service backup of their virtual machines (VMs).
Acronis Backup & Recovery for vCloud Features:
“Buy-in to our private cloud was hindered by the lack of a suitable backup solution,” said Adrian Parks, Senior Systems Specialist at the University of Oxford. “We were using in-guest agents, but this was not ideal and not our preferred option. The Acronis solution solves this challenge by providing a VM backup solution that interfaces directly with the vCloud Director APIs.”
“Acronis knows backup, and if you want to deliver infrastructure-as-a-service, you need effective backup,” said Acronis CEO Serguei Beloussov. “Before this breakthrough, self-service technology from Acronis, protecting vCloud VMs was difficult and time consuming. Now, Acronis has applied its expertise in backup and knowledge of service providers to build the only self-service backup solution designed specifically for VMware vCloud, making it easier and safer for enterprises and service providers to run critical applications in the cloud.”
