Acronis Backup Advanced for Hyper-V

Microsoft® Hyper-V® is your virtualization platform but the data protection solution you use today only supports your physical machines. Now, you have an additional layer of software to manage which poses a higher risk of failure. The failure of just one physical component can render dozens of virtual servers non-operational.

Powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine, Acronis Backup Advanced for Hyper-V delivers state-of-the-art protection and recovery capabilities for your Hyper-V server environment, including cluster configurations. The Acronis AnyData Engine, integrated with Microsoft Hyper-V, leverages Acronis’ patented diskimaging feature to quickly capture and store all data in a universal backup format, allowing recovery to any hardware or virtual machine. With one simple click, you can restore files, application data, an entire virtual machine (VM), or your complete Hyper-V environment.

The Acronis AnyData Engine, built on advanced technology and fueled by over 50 patents, is the easiest-to-use and most innovative data protection technology available. Its modular architecture lets you use Acronis Backup Advanced for Hyper-V in a stand-alone mode or seamlessly blend into a total solution that protects any data, across any environment, in any location. Buy only what you need today and then easily expand as your business grows by adding on additional products. The Acronis Management Server, which includes policy-driven controls and centralized reporting, provides one management interface so you can easily manage all physical and virtual machine backups across your environment.
