Product Features

Key Features

Complete Business Protection

  • SAN storage Snapshots:Reduce impact of backup process on your infrastructure by offloading VMware VM backup snapshots to NetApp SAN storage.
  • Clustered SQL Support: Protect entire infrastructure and follow best practices by backing up SQL Server clusters from passive nodes by default or by choosing active/specific node to perform the backup.
  • Clustered Exchange Support: Protect entire infrastructure and follow best practices by backing up Exchange DAG clusters from passive nodes by default or by choosing active/specific node to perform the backup.
  • Complete Oracle Database Server Backup: Reduce RTOs and simplify recovery with backup of entire Oracle Database servers, including operating systems, databases, settings and configuration.

Recovery

  • Remote Bare-Mtal Recovery: Reduce RTOs of remote sites and systems by accessing bootable media and restoring bare-metal servers remotely via wide-area networks (WAN).
  • Enhanced Validation in Sandbox Environment: Ensure recovery success by validating backup content with checksum, validating recoverability by automatically running the backup as a VM and performing service availability checks with pre-defined and custom scripts.
  • Automated Bared-Metal Recovery:Reduce RTOs of critical systems by automating and orchestrating the recovery by customising the bootable media with scripting.

Flexible Storagae Options

  • Tape Drivers, Autoloaders and Tape Libraries: Satisfy regulatory requirements and disaster recovery needs by storing backups on local or central tape devices with support for media management, tape rotation and retention rules.
  • Off-Host Operations: Reduce production machine loads by performing select activities — such as backup staging (moving), replication (copying), validation and retention (cleanup) — on a different system.
  • Variable Block-Size Deduplication: Reduce disk storage capacity utilization and network bandwidth requirements and protect more systems with efficient, resource-friendly in-line and global deduplication.
  • Multiple Backup Destinations: Increase business resiliency with flexible and reliable recovery by storing your backups in up to five different locations, locally and in the cloud. Combine local disks, attached storage, tape, network storage and cloud locations to minimise your storage costs and provide multiple recovery options in the case of disaster.

Scalable Management

  • Role-Based Administrative Access: Enable IT to protect remote offices, branch offices and departments with the ability to manage, delegate and establish roles for multiple administrators.
  • Advanced Reporting: Increase infrastructure resiliency with regular, customisable reports that focus on the exceptions in your infrastructure.

Data Protection

  • Acronis Active Protection: Proactively prevent the need to recover by protecting data and systems from ransomware attacks, detecting and preventing suspicious changes to data, backup files and the backup application.
  • Acronis Notary: Improve regulatory compliance and validity of recovery, ensuring your backup’s authenticity and integrity with blockchain.
