BURLINGTON, Mass. - Acronis®, Inc. (http://www.acronis.com), announced today a new family of backup and recovery software specifically designed for databases, including SQL Server, Oracle and MS Exchange. Initial shipments will be in the United States, with Europe and Asia/Pacific Rim releases later this quarter.

Acronis Recovery brings the power and easy-of-use of the company's Acronis True Image software to meet the specific needs of database management. IT managers and database administrators (DBAs) can quickly, easily and securely back up and recover databases back to the point of failure, including tables, logs and all other components. It includes a wizard-driven management console and the ability to create backup images that are up to 90 percent smaller than the original database. It will also allow backup to an FTP server without any staging steps. Providing a fast and reliable way to move backups offsite.

“Just this week there were published reports of thousands of SQL databases that were attacked by a malicious script that hijacked PCs,” said Walter Scott, CEO of Acronis. “Viruses don’t just attack just PCs; they also attack servers running Microsoft SQL Server. Having a current database backup could save an SMB dozens of hours of time that would be required to rebuild a damaged or infected database. "Database administrators need to know that their backups are secure enough to meet regulatory requirements, while being space-efficient, easily managed and quickly restorable," said Scott. "Our line of database disaster recovery products delivers the features and functionality specifically required by IT managers and DBAs responsible for maintaining disparate databases within their datacenters."
