When your VMware system crashes, get back up and running 100x faster—even if you aren’t an IT expert.
Backing up and recovering virtual systems can be complex, frustrating, and time consuming. Keep it simple with Acronis Backup for VMware, the fastest, easiest way to protect your entire VMware vSphere environment.
Capture your entire system in one easy step thanks to patented disk imaging paired with VADP integration
Near-instant recovery can restore an entire VMware server 100X faster than traditional methods
Granular recovery can restore files, application data, an entire VM, or full ESXi™ environments
Enjoy unlimited P2V/V2V migrations and support for any recovery destination (even to a different hypervisor)
Designed for exceptional ease of use, Acronis Backup for VMware removes the complexity of virtual machine protection:
Installation and configuration procedures require almost zero learning curve
Acronis’ streamlined, easy-to-use interface is accessible from any mobile device
Smart backups remove the guesswork by capturing everything required for complete VM recovery
Full vCenter integration simplifies browsing and recovery tasks
Web-based, intuitive interface makes it easy to quickly perform backup and recovery tasks from any browser or mobile device.
Fast, Efficient Backups
Deep integration with VMware vStorage APIs balances backup routines across your ESXi environment. We also use CBT to reduce the volume of backup data, ensuring that your backups are always fast.
Advanced recovery technology called vmFlashback helps you to restore an entire VM up to 100x faster than traditional methods.
Full integration with vCenter and the VMware API allows you to perform backup, replication, and recovery routines directly from the VMware vCenter interface.
Agentless VM Backups
Agentless backups eliminate the need to install an agent on every VM, greatly reducing management complexity.
Comprehensive backup technology tracks and captures all related application data, allowing you to recover any Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, or Active Directory data. If necessary, the transaction logs can be truncated with other application-specific backup details.
Unlimited Server Migration
Acronis' unique Universal Restore technology allows you to migrate an entire server between physical and virtual systems (including a different hypervisor) without the usual complexities.

Incremental and Differential Backups
Incremental and differential backups identify only the changes made since the last backup, significantly reducing backup time, network usage, and storage requirements.
Install Acronis Backup for VMware on a machine running Microsoft Windows, or deploy it directly to a VMware ESXi host as a self-contained virtual appliance.
Virtual Application (vApp) Support
Comprehensive backups can capture and recover entire vApps (including their configurations).
Compression and Deduplication
Built-in compression and deduplication significantly reduces network usage and storage requirements.
VM Disk Hot-plug
Acronis Backup for VMware’s virtual appliance can mount virtual machine disks during backup instead of transferring data over the TCP/IP network. This results in reduced resource consumption and significantly improved backup throughput.
Control VM performance during backup processes by automatically managing VM backups across your ESXi server. Acronis also provides bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling to maintain good system performance during backup routines.
Acronis Backup for VMware reads data directly from shared storage using either SAN direct access (Windows Agent) or hot-plug technology (virtual appliance). This helps avoid unnecessary loads on the LAN and ESXi host.
VMware vMotion/DRS Compatibility
Acronis Backup for VMware is fully compatible with VMware vMotion, Storage vMotion, and DRS. Move virtual machines between VMware hosts to dynamically adjust resources or recover from failure.
Run a VM from a Backup
Recover any physical server as a VM, or boot a backup as a VM for development/testing (simply save any changes made as a new backup).
Create and incrementally update a copy of your virtual machine onto another host for faster recovery.
