Acronis® Recovery™ for MS SQL Server first in a family of products designed to protect SMB, enterprise databases
Acronis Applies Award-Winning Acronis True Image Architecture to Acronis Recovery For MS SQL Server Immediately; Oracle & Exchange To Follow
BURLINGTON, Mass., January 10, 2008 — Acronis, Inc. (http://us.metro.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 of Acronis Recovery for MS SQL Server will be in the United States, with Europe and Asia/Pacific Rim releases later this quarter.
Acronis Recovery brings the power and ease-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 attack just PCs; they also attack servers running Microsoft SQL Server. Having a current database backup could save a 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."
Acronis Recovery for MS SQL Server, available immediately, includes the ability to easily recover a database from a point just before the failure or disruption with no loss of work. This means critical database-driven business functions can be quickly restored with minimal disruption.
The SQL version also provides the peace-of-mind of backing-up database images offsite via FTP. IT managers can automatically create and e-mail disaster recovery plans with step-by-step instructions for recovering databases. The guided process makes it possible for staff to restore databases quickly, even without database administration skills.
