In this update, Acronis introduces several new capabilities for VMware environments. Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 is now VMware Cluster-Aware, giving users the ability to backup all machines in a VMware cluster from a virtual appliance. In addition, Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 now supports VMware VMotion, and VMware High Availability.

Houston Texas-based iland Internet Solutions Chief Technology Officer Justin Giardina has been leveraging Acronis and VMware as an integrated package to help the firm meet its business goal to expand its virtual machine hosting customer base. “The close relationship between VMware and Acronis has given iland an important competitive advantage for nearly two years, allowing us to demonstrate our ability to recover any machine onto a VMware machine in moments.”
