BACKUP AND STORAGE MANAGEMENT FOR BUSINESS USE

Acronis Backup for Windows Server

Complete backup and recovery for individual Windows servers

When your Windows server goes down, avoid expensive downtime and get back up and running in minutes.

Recovering a server can take significant time and expertise, leaving your business vulnerable. Protect your entire Windows server environment with Acronis Backup, your one-stop solution for comprehensive backups and fast, flexible recovery.

  • Patented, block-level disk imaging captures your entire Windows server in one easy step
  • Bare-metal recovery ensures that you are back up and running in minutes, not hours
  • Recover individual files, application data, or a complete system with a few simple clicks
  • Save on time and storage with incremental backups, compression, and deduplication

Not an IT expert?  Acronis Backup for Windows Server was designed to make backup and recovery exceptionally easy:

  • Installation and configuration procedures require almost zero learning curve
  • Smart backups remove the guesswork by capturing everything required for complete recovery
  • Restore a server to new, different hardware without worrying about incompatibilities
  • Migrate physical systems to virtual servers without the usual complexities

Key Features

Full Image Backups

Block-level, image-based backups capture all application and operating system data in one efficient step. Unlike competing products, backups automatically skip unused data blocks to provide faster results with less storage requirements.

Incremental Backups

Incremental backups identify only the changes made since the last backup, significantly reducing backup time, network consumption, and storage requirements.

Multiple Backup Targets

Store backup copies in up to 5 different locations for flexible, reliable recovery options. Includes support for local disks, networked storage, and offsite cloud storage.

Granular Recovery

Granular recovery allows you to browse and restore files, folders, volumes, or a complete server—all from the same image backup.

System Performance

Network bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling allows you to control the impact of running backups during production hours.

Acronis Startup Recovery Manager

Bootable rescue utility that you can launch by pressing F11 during system startup. 

Granular Backups

Granular backup option allows you to selectively back up specific files and folders (including files from network shares).

Server Migration

Acronis’ proprietary Unified Backup Format allows any backup to be recovered to any server in any location (including migration between any physical and virtual platform—P2P, P2V, V2V, V2P)

Sector-By-Sector Backups

Store an exact copy of your disk or volume, sector by sector (including unused space).

Pre/Post Commands

Define pre or post backup and data-capture commands to integrate Acronis Backup with other applications (or to temporarily stop some services).

Active Restore

Intelligent restore feature immediately identifies and recovers core system functions, allowing you to return to regular operations while system recovery proceeds.

Exclude Files

Manually exclude non-essential files and folders from your backups to save time and storage.

Disaster Recovery Plans

After each backup, Acronis can automatically generate a Disaster Recovery Plan document that provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for easy recovery.

Browsing and Mounting Backups

Browse backups in Windows Explorer as if they were ordinary folders, and simply drag-and-drop or copy-paste files/folders from them. You can even mount disk images as a drive letter in either read-only or read/write mode.

No Reboot Required

No need to schedule downtime and reboot to complete an Acronis Backup installation.

Replication

To satisfy your recovery time objectives (RTO), Acronis simplifies DR with a one-click option to automatically replicate backups to multiple media and locations.
