Acronis True Image Server for Windows Review
Back up and restore everything on your server: from databases to applications
Acronis True Image Echo Server for Windows is the most reliable, flexible and easy-to-use server backup solution ever! Backup data and program files in no time and recover the entire server without losing your data! There's no need to reconfigure your computer after the recovery procedure — all your settings will be preserved. Acronis has boasted its bare-metal restore technology for a long time and now even P2V migration is a pretty simple task: an add-on utility Acronis Universal Restore allows you to restore your backup files to different hardware or to a virtual environment.
Acronis does its best to meet the demands of its customers and embeds enhanced functionality into the True Image product family. This solution enables you to perform full, incremental and differential backup. It can image your whole server or implement granular backup and recovery of selected files and folders.
You may schedule backup tasks, compress and encrypt images, exclude certain types of files from backups and much more!
To eliminate the risk of infecting or damaging your backup files, save them to Acronis Secure Zone — a hidden partition on your hard drive seen by Acronis wizard only.
When it comes to disaster recovery, you can minimise downtime, getting back to work in seconds — use the opportunity to run True Image directly from your boot drive even if Windows hasn't loaded yet. All you need to do is press the F11 key on boot-up.
All Acronis' products have an intuitive XP-like wizard to facilitate backup and restore operations. There is also command line interface, supporting scripts. Acronis True Image supports both 32 and 64-bit processors, and a broad range of the most popular Microsoft Windows operating systems: from NT 4.0 Server to Vista.
With Acronis True Image Echo Server for Windows you'll quickly recover from any unforesen event and stay in business 24/7!
