Acronis completes backup full circle will SMB solution

10 Dec 13

Acronis has revealed that Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 now delivers comprehensive protection for all environments and platforms for SMBs.

According to the backup solutions provider, the added support of Microsoft Active Directory secures the ‘backbone’ of an SMB’s IT infrastructure, as tens of thousands of business-critical applications rely on Active Directory to authenticate and authorise users.

“In the event of downtime, companies freeze to a halt without Active Directory, and users within the domain can lose access to email, shared files, and their Windows computers," says Simon Howe, Sales Director APAC, Acronis.

"The effects are devastating for an SMB. Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 for Active Directory quickly recovers the Active Directory domain controller, along with the operating system and data, so SMBs continue to function without skipping a beat.”

Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 for Active Directory takes a snapshot of the entire disk to recover the whole system, including the Active Directory database.

This disk imaging technology enables SMBs to recover to multiple platforms and dissimilar hardware, ensuring SMBs can get all their data and applications back in a shorter time and a simpler way.

“It’s critical for SMBs to have a single backup solution for their servers and applications, including Active Directory, to ensure that essential business-critical applications can be restored quickly if needed,” adds Robert Amatruda, research director, IDC.

“Acronis provides SMBs with a simple and comprehensive backup solution to safeguard all their key applications such as Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, and Active Directory.”

With a common user interface for all systems, Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 also removes the need for a specialised IT team and dedicated human resources to manage backups, supporting both Physical and Virtual environments, Window and Linux servers, and Microsoft applications.
