Acronis Backup Advanced for Active Directory 12

Efficient Active Directory Backup and Recovery

Acronis Backup Advanced is the top-notch solution for protecting your Active Directory database and domain controllers.

Powered by Acronis AnyData Technology, Acronis Backup Advanced leverages patented, high-performance disk imaging to provide the fastest backups and the most flexible, reliable recovery available.

Now you can easily protect and instantly recover an entire domain controller (or individual Active Directory database files), either locally or to a remote server.


Universal Restore

Included with all Acronis backup solutions, this unique data recovery technology gives you the convenient ability to instantly restore backups to any machine, regardless of platform. Now you can restore files, configurations, applications, or an entire system to the same hardware, to different hardware, or to a virtual server—all with a few simple clicks

Single-Pass Backups for Active Directory Domain Controllers

Acronis Backup Advanced provides deep integration with Microsoft Windows and Active Directory, ensuring that specific Active Directory database files (Ntds.dit, Edb.chk, Edb.log, Res.log, and %SystemRoot%\SYSVOL) are backed up along with the entire domain controller—all in one easy step!

AD-Aware Recovery Interface

Acronis Backup Advanced automatically identifies your Active Directory database and related files (including the SYSVOL folder), and provides AD-specific recovery capabilities. This ensures that you can recover your domain controller (or simply a component of it) as quickly as possible.

USN Rollback Management

Acronis Backup Advanced automatically prevents Update Sequence Number (USN) rollback to ensure consistency across multiple domain controllers during a recovery process.

Direct Performance Management

Ensure optimal domain controller performance during backups! Acronis Backup Advanced lets you control your environment with bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling, to ensure good system performance during backups.

Efficient Incremental Backups

Incremental backups identify only the changes made since the last backup, significantly reducing backup time and any impact on network bandwidth or backup storage.

Disaster Recovery

In the event of a hardware failure or natural disaster, Acronis’ patented disk-imaging backup approach ensures the fastest bare-metal restore. Recover an entire server in minutes, minimizing expensive downtime.


Built-in source and target variable block size data deduplication minimizes data movement. This helps reduce the cost of additional storage and alleviate network loads.

Centralized Management/Reporting

Acronis Backup Advanced includes a centralized management and reporting console. Manage and report on all operations for all physical and virtual machines, and applications from a single dashboard.

Modular Architecture

Acronis Backup Advanced's flexible modular architecture allows you to expand data protection at any time. Start with your immediate needs, then, as your business grows, simply protect new physical servers, virtual systems, and workstations—without having to install a whole new backup environment!
