EXCLUSIVE! Virtual Server Protection
Mitigate risks by backing up and recovering your virtual machines and hosts on any of six supported hypervisors – VMware vSphere®, Microsoft Hyper-V®, Citrix XenServer®, Red Hat® Virtualization, Linux® KVM, and Oracle® VM Server.

VMware vSphere Replication with WAN Optimization
Reduce VMware VM RTOs by maintaining a copy of your VM on a secondary site for quick failover and failback. Improve network performance with built-in Wide-Area Network (WAN) optimization.

Oracle Database® Backup
Protect your entire Oracle database infrastructure with complete disk-imaging backup and bare-metal recovery of your Oracle database server. Reduce RTOs with granular recovery of databases, tablespaces, and logs.

SAN Storage Snapshots
Reduce the impact of backup processes on your infrastructure by offloading VMware VM backup snapshots to NetApp SAN storage.
EXCLUSIVE! Acronis Instant Restore™
Achieve RTOs of 15 seconds or less by starting your backup directly from storage as a VMware or Hyper-V VM; no data movement required.

Acronis vmFlashback
Slash RTOs by quickly restoring VMware or Hyper-V VMs by leveraging Changed Block Tracking (CBT) and recovering only the data changed since the last backup.

EXCLUSIVE! VMware ESXi and Hyper-V Host Bare-Metal Recovery
Increase resilience of your infrastructure by backing up your ESXi and Hyper-V hosts and restoring entire systems (not just VMs) to the same or dissimilar hardware, avoiding the need to reconfigure your hypervisor systems.

Remote and Automated Recovery
Reduce RTOs of remote sites and systems by accessing bootable media and restoring bare-metal servers remotely via wide-area networks (WAN). Automate and orchestrate the recovery by customizing the bootable media with scripting.
