Current Version: Acronis Backup Advanced Version 11.5

Key Features

Disk Image Technology

Disk-level snapshots save complete images of a disk or volume in one simple step (including the operating system, applications, and data). This technology works for both physical and virtual machines.

Centralized Management

Our unified dashboard lets you manage all backup operations for both physical and virtual machines from a single, central location. Assign backup plans to one or more machines, review status updates, and receive alerts—all from one console!

Business Applications Protection

Our patented disk image technology enables consistent backup of running applications. This allows you to backup Exchange , SQL Server, SharePoint, and Active Directory data as you work.  Granular application data may be restored without taking systems offline, protecting your business from expensive downtime.

Compression and Deduplication

Deduplication can be run on either the source or target side to minimize data movement and maximize utilization of storage and network infrastructure. This helps reduce storage costs and minimizes network load.

Multiple Backup Destinations

Store your backups in up to 5 different locations to ensure more flexible, reliable recovery. Combine local disks, attached storage, tape, network storage, and/or cloud locations to minimize your storage costs and provide multiple recovery options in the case of disaster.

more features

Complete Virtual Server Protection

Acronis Backup Advanced products support any popular virtualization technology, providing data protection and migration capabilities between various hypervisors and physical machines.

Dissimilar Hardware Restore

With Acronis Universal Restore technology, you can bare-metal restore your systems to different hardware (booting from bootable media or PXE server). This lets you quickly recover your entire server and minimize expensive downtime.

Backup Operations Scheduling

Acronis backups run automatically based on your specific schedule, but they also offer the flexibility of being triggered by specific events (user logging on/off, machines being powered on/off, and so on).

Backup Schemes

Acronis Backup Advanced products have a set of predefined, industry-standard schemes (such as Grandfather-Father-Son or Tower-of-Hanoi). Custom schemes may be configured with advanced settings.

Catalogues and Indexing

Backup indexing and centralized catalogues help you quickly find a particular version of disk image, file, folder, application database, or individual data item—even if backups are split across different storage media.


Backup operations may be limited with network bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling to minimize the impact of running backups during production hours.

Bare-Metal Restore

Our disk image technology allows you to create an exact replica of the system and user data, and then restore that replica to a new drive in case of critical drive failure.

Encrypted Storage and Communication

Critical backup data can be encrypted with industry-standard 256-bit AES algorithm. All data transmissions are performed over an SSL-encrypted channel by default.

Incremental and Differential Backups

Our incremental & differential backups identify only the changes made since the last backup, significantly reducing backup time and the impact on network usage and backup storage.

Wake-On-LAN Support

Wake-on-LAN functionality will automatically turn on a machine when it is time to run a backup. This ensures execution of the backup plan for that machine, independent of its power state.

Validation and Consolidation

Manual or scheduled automatic validation of backups ensures system and user data are recoverable. Consolidation of incremental backups provides the ability to save additional storage space.

Storage and Retention Policies

Backup data may be automatically moved between various storage locations, and older backups may be deleted to save space for newly created backups.

Simplified Product Licensing

Acronis Backup Advanced products are packaged to provide everything you need to protect your server, applications, and workstations. A Universal License is also available for larger environments that includes access to all products in the Acronis Backup Advanced suite.

AnyData Technology

Acronis AnyData technology provides complete protection across devices, operating systems, virtual environments, applications, and storage locations. . The power of the AnyData technology is to seamlessly blend products from Acronis Backup Advanced Suite in any combination to become a single data protection platform with a common user interface, unified policies, and centralized management.
