Keeping virtual data safe can be a complex undertaking that demands smart, efficient solutions that simplify rather than complicate critical tasks. Keep it simple with Acronis Backup Advanced—the trusted, most efficient Hyper-V backup and recovery solution available.

Complete Backups Designed for Hyper-V

Acronis Backup Advanced combines agentless, image-based backups with deep Windows Hyper-V integration to protect your entire setup - the Virtual Machines, virtual application, the Windows host operating systems and even host-based applications.

Application Support

Acronis Backup Advanced protects the application data of the Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, Active Directory, and SharePoint running on Hyper-V VMs as well as on the Windows host with Hyper-V role.

Hybrid Protection

For complete peace of mind, Acronis Backup Advanced can create and send multiple backup copies to both local storage and the Acronis cloud—without any additional steps!

Fast, Flexible Recovery

Acronis Backup Advanced's near-instant recovery technology allows you to restore individual files, application data, VMs or entire host—all from the same backup! We also offer the flexibility of restoring data to its original location or to an entirely new one (even a completely different hypervisor platform).

Acronis Backup Advanced protects hybrid physical and virtual environments with a unified management console. You can protect your Hyper-V environment, and expand protection to your physical servers, other virtualization hosts and even workstations to protect your entire business.


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!

Specialized Hyper-V Backups

Acronis Backup Advanced provides deep integration with Hyper-V to create agentless backups of your Hyper-V Virtual Machines. Acronis will also protect your Hyper-V host Windows operating system, including host-level applications to ensure complete protection on entire configuration.

Agentless and Agent-based VM Backups

Acronis Backup Advanced provides ultimate flexibility in backing up Hyper-V. Agentless VM backups eliminate the need to install an agent on each VM, reducing resource usage and management complexity. You can also use agent-based backups to protect host Windows operating system and host-based applications, as well as to protect Virtual Machines that use passthrough disks and/or guest-initiated iSCSI.

Windows Hyper-V Integration

Acronis Backup Advanced is fully integrated with Microsoft Hyper-V and provides automatic identification of all your VMs. You can select all VMs, groups of VMs, or individual VMs for backup, and you can identify and recover individual VMs in minutes.

Recover any server as a VM

Acronis makes it easy for you to quickly recover any physical or virtual server backup as a VM, or simply clone a backup as a VM for development/testing.

Direct-To-Tape Backups

Acronis Backup Advanced lets you back up directly to tape drives, autoloaders and libraries. You can also copy or stage your backups to up to 4 additional backup copies to multiple locations (disk, tape, or cloud), thereby maximizing your recovery options and reliability.

Application Support

In addition to protecting your VMs, Acronis Backup Advanced also includes application-specific support of Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint, and Active Directory data. This ensures data consistency and easy, granular recovery of individual items (such as files, emails, and documents).

Direct Performance Management

To ensure optimal VM performance during backups, Acronis Backup Advanced lets you control your environment by balancing VM backups across your Windows server. Acronis also provides bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling to maintain good system performance during backup.

Server Migration

Easily migrate a server between any physical and virtual platform with Acronis’ proprietary Unified Backup Format. This technology lets you recover any backup to any server in any location.

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 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 backup 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!
