Acronis vmProtect 9 is a cost effective and easy to use backup solution for VMware vSphere environments, designed for small and medium businesses and branch offices of large enterprises.

Sydney, 29 August 2013 – Acronis, a leading provider of physical, virtual and cloud backup solutions, today announced the launch of Acronis® vmProtectTM 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 optimised for smaller vSphere environments with a dozen VMs and equipped to support 100s 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 the 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:

• Recognises 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.

Andy Purvis, General Manager, ANZ for Acronis, said: “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. 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.”
