Backup Advanced for Windows Server


Agent for Windows, included in Acronis® Backup Advanced for Windows Server, provides image- and file-based backup for physical servers with individual files and bare-metal recovery support. It is built around Acronis’ state-of-the-art imaging technology and allows you to create image-based backups, or snapshots, of your entire system, including operating system, applications, configuration and data; and recover the image to the same hardware or dissimilar hardware.The imaging technology analyses supported file systems in order to identify and skip the backup of unused blocks, unnecessary files – like page and hibernation files – and custom files and folders defined by the user. Agent for Windows seamlessly integrates with other agents for centralized management and reporting, cataloging with search, and disk, tape and cloud support. Backups are stored in a unified format – fully compatible with agents for VMware® vSphere™ and Microsoft® Hyper-V, opening endless flexibility and migration options.With VSS – Agent for Windows guarantees applications consistency and recoverability. Applications servers such as Exchange, SQL Server, Active Directory, Oracle and SharePoint can be backed up and recovered. Individual files can be recovered from a disk image. These files are then added to a searchable centralized catalog along with file-based backups.

One single-pass backup is enough for both disaster recovery and long-term data recovery.
