VMware Backup and Data Recovery

Protect your entire VMware environment with complete backups, flexible storage, and ultra-fast data recovery—all managed from one easy-to-use dashboard.

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 fastest, most efficient way to protect multiple VMware systems easily:

Complete VMware Backups

Acronis Backup Advanced leverages patented disk imaging, agent-based and agentless backups and seamless VMware integration to capture your entire setup quickly and easily.

Application Support

Acronis Backup Advanced includes the ability to protect application data for Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, Active Directory, and SharePoint running on VMware VMs.

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!

Affordable Complete Protection

Acronis Backup Advanced reduces costs of your VMware data protection, as it is licensed per physical ESX(i) host. It includes entire functionality - there are no tiers, no add-ons, and no hidden costs of per-socket licensing models.

Fast, Flexible Recovery

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

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

Features

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 VMware Backup

Acronis Backup Advanced includes deep integration with VMware vStorage API for Data Protection (VADP) and takes advantage of Change Block Tracking (CBT) to reduce the volume of backup data, ensuring that your VM backups are always fast and successful.

vCenter Integration

With complete vCenter integration, Acronis Backup Advanced uses the VMware API to identify all the VMs on your ESX(i) server. You can select all VMs, groups of VMs, or individual VMs for backup. You can also find and recover individual VMs in minutes.

Agentless and Agent-based VM Backups

Acronis Backup Advanced provides ultimate flexibility in backing up VMware environments. 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 Virtual Machines that use Physical RDM disks, independent disks, and/or guest-initiated iSCSI.

Protecting Virtual Machines with Physical RDM, Independent Disks and Guest-Initiated iSCSI

If you use physical RDM, independent disks or guest-initiated iSCSI in your VMware environment, you will need a backup agent to properly protect your data. Unlike VM-only backup solutions, Acronis Backup Advanced supports these configurations through a backup agent that identifies and backs up data stored in RDM configurations on your SAN LUNs, in your independent (both persistent and non-persistent) and your guest-initiated iSCSI volumes.

Efficient Incremental Backups

Incremental backups identify just the changes made since the last backup significantly reducing backup time and impact on your network and backup storage.

Recover a server as a VM

Acronis Backup Advanced 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

Unlike other VMware backup products, Acronis Backup Advanced lets you back up to and recover directly from tape drives, autoloaders and tape libraries. In fact, you can copy or stage your backups to up to 4 additional locations - disk, tape, or cloud, maximizing your recovery options and data resilience.

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

Ensure optimal VM performance during backups. Acronis Backup Advanced enables you to control your environment by balancing backups of VMs across an ESX(i) server. Acronis also provides bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling to ensure system performance during backups.

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.

Virtual Application (vApp) Support

Comprehensive backups can capture and recover entire vApps (including their configurations).

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 VMware needs, then, as your business grows, simply protect new physical servers, virtual systems, and workstations—without having to install a whole new backup environment!
