VMworld, Las Vegas, NV., August 30, 2011 — VMTurbo, a leading provider of intelligent workload management software to assure application performance, and Acronis, a leading provider of easy-to-use disaster recovery and data protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced a new technology partnership that brings together  virtualization monitoring and high performance backup and recovery for  VMware® vSphere™ environments.

The joint solution combines fast, affordable, simple backup and recovery with real time monitoring and alerting that allows administrators to:

“With an offer that combines VM backup and recovery with monitoring, Acronis and VMTurbo are giving organizations a more comprehensive approach to securing their VMware environments,” said N. Louis Shipley, president and CEO of VMTurbo. “It’s an intelligent data protection approach tailor-made for sophisticated virtual environments where visibility into backup performance can help identify and prevent issues far in advance of a data loss disaster.”
