Acronis Intros Application

SAN FRANCISCO -- Acronis, Inc. (, a provider of affordable, scalable storage management and disaster recovery software, today announced Acronis True Image Echo, the first application to enable IT managers to backup and restore both physical and virtual servers; competitive approaches use different programs to migrate to and from physical to virtual and virtual to physical systems. The product is being demonstrated this week at VMworld 2007 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, CA at Acronis booth #927.

Acronis True Image Echo™, the latest addition to Acronis' portfolio of enterprise-class backup and recovery, migration and virtualization product families, integrates seamlessly with all Windows- and Linux-based servers, regardless of whether those servers are physical or virtual. Acronis also supports major virtualization operating systems such as VMware®, Microsoft®, XenSource®, SWsoft® and Parallels®.

Utilizing the Acronis Virtual Live Data Format to separate hard disk contents from the underlying file format and platform dependency, Acronis True Image Echo™ creates a transportable image, independent of the hardware platform that can be restored directly to and from any virtual or physical environment. This is accomplished in conjunction with Acronis Universal Restore, an add-on module to Acronis True Image Echo™.

Additional new features in Acronis True Image Echo™ include:

  • VMDK support
  • Event-driven backups
  • Support for dynamic discs
  • Wake on LAN
