Acronis partners with system and drive OEMs to deliver real value-add and significant service savings

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF., June 7, 2005 — Acronis, Inc., the leader in storage and systems management software solutions, announced it is expanding its OEM program for the Acronis portfolio of OEM products worldwide.

The Acronis OEM portfolio includes Acronis True Image, the award-winning market leader in disk imaging backup and disaster recovery; Acronis Disk Director Suite, a powerful systems and storage management application; and Acronis Privacy Expert Suite, an award-winning set of tools that include anti-spyware, personal security and privacy programs. In addition, Acronis also offers Acronis Migrate Easy, an essential tool for migrating data from one disk drive to another.

Acronis OEM products are currently available in all markets worldwide.

"The Acronis OEM program is designed for computer systems and storage device manufacturers," said Max Tsypliaev, CEO of Acronis. "Acronis' world-class products can be bundled or embedded into the hardware to provide complete product solutions. Acronis OEM products meet all the requirements of computer system and storage device vendors. Choosing award-winning Acronis OEM products guarantees a real value-add to the hardware offerings and significant service savings."

"System and storage device manufacturers cannot sell generic solutions to their customers and expect to be recognized and distinguished from white-box suppliers," said Luis Andrade, director of OEM Sales and Business Development for Acronis. "Acronis' OEM solutions give manufacturers a powerful, competitive edge that increase the value of their products and are proven revenue-drivers. Acronis OEM partners have lower support costs which, coupled with the increased value of their products, translates into revenue gains."

Acronis True Image OEM for PC and Server vendors is a value-added product used by system manufacturers to reduce support costs and quickly build uniform system for their customers. The software allows system vendors to create a compressed disk image of the new system and save it to a hidden space on a hard drive as well as burn on CD or DVD. In the event of the system failure users can quickly and easily get the brand new system back from the archive without reinstallations and, most important, without contacting the vendor service hot line.

In addition, Acronis True Image OEM for PC and Server allows users to create their own backup images, providing the most comprehensive data protection and disaster recovery solution.

Acronis True Image OEM HDD gives disk drive OEMs the ability to bring to market whole product solutions for data backup and disaster recovery, not just hardware. Acronis True Image OEM HDD for Drive vendors gives OEMs an edge, giving them a powerful tool to increase the value of their products and differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive market.

Acronis Migrate Easy is the "must have" product for hard disk drive vendors. It allows their customers to deploy a new hard disk on a PC or laptop quickly and easily either as an additional storage or as a bootable drive — migrating all data, operating systems, programs, and everything else automatically.
