Woburn, Mass., (October 5, 2010) — Acronis, a leading provider of easy-to-use backup, recovery and security solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced the general availability of Acronis® Backup & Recovery™ 10 Online.

Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Online answers the need for customers who do not have multiple datacenters to cost-effectively back up their backups offsite for protection against primary site loss, creating a virtual datacenter capability. With the service, IT administrators can recover files, folders or even complete images of systems.
A single Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 console seamlessly manages both local and online backup and recovery efforts regardless of the data's location. Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 provides the benefits of local backups and recoveries in the event of infrastructure failure or other occurrences such as accidently deleted files or virus attack. The new Acronis solution provides that extra level of protection, enabling organizations to recover quickly and completely from a secure cloud computing environment in the wake of a full-scale outage, without requiring a dedicated offsite storage facility and its associated costs.
The service includes support for mixed virtual and physical computing environments found in many of today's businesses. One of the first data protection solutions to offer online agent-less backup for virtual machines, Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Online eliminates agents, which reduces repetitive administration tasks, and helps to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO).
