New features include a system-centric approach to restore all data, files, applications and operating systems.
a provider of user-friendly disaster recovery and data protection solutions for
physical, virtual and cloud environments, announced the general availability of
its Backup & Recovery 11 platform, which is designed to allow small to
medium-size businesses to simplify their disaster recovery and data protection
& Recovery 11 is available at $1,399 per server from Acronis channel
partners, the company said. Support for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and
Microsoft SQL Server will be available at a later date, according to a company
upon Acronis' disk imaging technology, the business product family offers small
businesses a solution for integrated disaster recovery and data protection in
one package. Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 offers a data-centric and a
system-centric view of physical and virtual machines as well as secure offsite
storage. The company said this allows IT managers to simplify their operations
from one unified platform, saving costs in the process.
Backup & Recovery 11 is a step ahead when it comes to integrated backup,
disaster recovery and data protection," said Sven Dreyfeldt of Siemens IT
solutions and services division. "Combining these in one platform and one
solution opens new ways to implement policies and disaster recovery strategies

features include a system-centric approach to restore all data, files,
applications and operating systems through disk imaging technology for faster
restoration and a data-centric approach allowing IT managers to recover, manage
and search for individual files from a backup no matter where they're located
in the backup file archive.
features include the ability to back up both physical and virtual environments
and the capability to store files and full system images in the cloud. The
platform also supports an unlimited number of migrations to and from the host
machine, and users can place an agent into the virtual machine and manage it as
a user would manage a physical machine. In addition, businesses can use a
single host-based agent for VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V to manage all
virtual machines on a host at once.

Enterprise Strategy Group. "Solidifying solutions for bare metal recovery and
file-level protection together makes sense in order to allow for more complete
and robust disaster recovery and data protection strategies for small to medium-sized
