Acronis Extends Granular Recovery of Applications to Physical and Virtual Environments

Acronis Extends Granular Recovery of Applications to Physical and Virtual 
Environments 
Acronis Makes Virtual Environments Safer and More Available, Enabling
Intelligent Reliable Recovery for Microsoft SQL Server and SharePoint 
WOBURN, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 --   With more organizations
moving large critical databases to virtual environments, Acronis
today announced that it is adding support for Microsoft(R) SQL
Server(R) and Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) to its award winning Acronis
Backup & Recovery(R) Unified Platform for virtual and physical
environments. The new modules are the latest extension of the Acronis
platform to support the most popular data-intensive applications,
reducing the complexity and time taken to restore applications and
their critical data in every environment.  
The patent-pending Single Pass Backup combines two backups in one,
eliminating the need for separate strategies for the protection of
applications and reducing time required for the operation. By
leveraging Acronis' in depth understanding of storage and file
systems, the new modules are 'application aware' when both backing up
and restoring, making it possible to find and restore only the files
or objects required from the application, in seconds. This is a
particular advantage when working in a virtual environment as
traditional backup and recovery solutions must restore an entire VM
before an individual file or object can be found.  
"Two of the unintended consequences of greater production server
virtualization are the increase in complexity and greater demand for
the availability of critical data," commented Dmitri Joukovski, vice
president of product management for Acronis. "The real focus for
maintaining protection and availability of critical applications
should be on ease of restore. Whether it is a single line of data, a
single file or an entire database, these can now be quickly located
and recovered through a one step, one administrator process without
the need for specialized tools or knowledge." 
The technology offers increased flexibility that can enable
organizations to achieve the aggressive RPO and RTO measures demanded
for applications -- even those on virtual machines. The Single Pass
backup and one process restore enables instances and databases, as
well as ind
ividual files and folders to be restored. Acronis Backup &
Recovery (R) supports Microsoft(R) Hyper-V(TM), VMware vSphere(R),
Red Hat(R) Enterprise Virtualization, Citrix(R) XenServer(R) and
Parallels(R) Server BareMetal hypervisors, and physical Windows(R)
and Linux servers, which allows data to be moved securely and
seamlessly between every environment of choice. This enables the
recovery of any machine or file to any other available machine,
reproducing an identical configuration and environment is not
required for a fast recovery. 
By adding Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) and SQL Server(R) to its
existing support for Microsoft(R) Active Directory(R) and Microsoft
Exchange, Acronis is simplifying the complexity of data protection
and availability for applications in every environment.
