Acronis vmProtect 9 Makes VMware vSphere® Backup Complete, Efficient and Easy for Small, Medium Businesses and Remote/Branch Offices

VMworld – San Francisco, CA; August 28, 2013 – Acronis, a leading provider of physical, virtual and cloud backup solutions, today announced the launch of Acronis® vmProtect® 9, the most efficient and easy-to-use VMware vSphere backup solution for small and medium business customers and remote branch offices of large enterprises. With added support for Microsoft® SQL Server®, Microsoft® SharePoint® and Microsoft® Active Directory®, vmProtect remains the only solution capable of recovering data at different levels: hypervisor, virtual machine (VM) and application.

Acronis vmProtect’s time-proven and award-winning solution combines dozens of advanced technologies packaged in an easy to use product that installs in less than three minutes. vmProtect’s accessible Web user interface is optimized for smaller vSphere environments with a dozen VMs and equipped to support 100’s of VMs. Unlike complex products with many features designed for large deployment sizes, Acronis vmProtect is focused on maintaining cost-effectiveness and ease of use to meet enterprise-grade needs of modern small and medium businesses as well as remote and branch offices. Acronis is dedicated to building solutions designed specifically for VMware.

Acronis vmProtect 9 Features:

·         Recognizes file systems, skips unnecessary files and incrementally restores virtual machines at top speeds with vmFlashBack®;

·         Runs virtual machines straight from a compressed and de-duplicated image;

·         Incorporates multi-destination backup, which automatically copies backups to an additional location, locally or to the cloud;

·         Includes self-backup with the ability to save and restore its configurations;

·         Integrates fully with VMware vCenter thus backup, recovery and replication operations can be managed directly from VMware vCenter; and

·         Is designed for efficient online purchase.

“After participating in the Beta test of Acronis vmProtect 9, I can confirm that it is a very stable product,” said Jeremy Otten, CEO Random Solutions. “When you look at the features of version 9, compared to its price, it is unbeatable. With granular restore for SQL Server and SharePoint, plus application-aware backup and restore for Active Directory, it’s a winner! Acronis will never stop improving vmProtect, so I am looking forward to the exciting new features that will come with each new version.”

“Acronis is dedicated to its partnership with VMware, and we are proud to have built the most efficient, easy-to-use and complete vSphere backup product on the market with vmProtect 9,” said Acronis CEO Serguei Beloussov. “We have a deep understanding of the backup needs of companies with smaller vSphere environments. By tapping into this knowledge and strengthening our already-proven vmProtect product, companies reap the benefits of a simple solution for enterprise-grade backup.”

Serguei Beloussov will be giving a keynote session at VMworld® 2013, “Self-Service Backup and DR for IaaS: The Service You Can’t Live Without,” on August 29th at 12pm PT.
