Acronis and Kaseya Offer Upgraded Backup and Recovery Solution

Acronis Backup & Recovery products to be integrated into Kaseya IT Framework and Kaseya Backup 4.0

Sydney, May 16, 2011 - Acronis, a leading provider of easy-to-use disaster recovery and data protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments and Kaseya, the leading global provider of IT Systems Management software, today announced that Acronis® Backup & Recovery™ solution will be integrated into the Kaseya IT Framework as part of Kaseya BackupTM 4.0.

Kaseya has offered the functionality of Acronis technology to their customers through an existing OEM agreement that has been successful for more than five years. Under the extended agreement which adds Acronis Backup & Recovery products for small to medium-size businesses, Kaseya customers are able to simply automate their backup and disaster recovery process across both physical and virtual environments in a single solution.

"The backup and disaster recovery capabilities we offer with Kaseya Backup are a key reason that IT professionals use our product for their customers' business continuity requirements," said Gerald Beaulieu, senior director of product marketing, Kaseya. "By offering a comprehensive solution from Acronis, we are able to improve the services we deliver to our customers to minimise loss of production due to disaster."

"Previously we had no way of supporting servers with dynamic disk capabilities," stated Tom Andrulis, owner, Intelligent Technical Solutions. "However now with Kaseya BackupTM 4.0, we can back up and it's amazingly fast. We normally see systems backing up about 1GB per minute. This system backed up over 4GB a minute."

With offsite data replication supporting rapid disaster recovery functionality based on the award-winning Acronis Backup & Recovery, Kaseya offers its Kaseya Backup™ module to its service provider and enterprise customers. Further, the Kaseya Backup module also protects full disk images as well as selected files to local data stores supporting customers' business continuity programs. Kaseya offers support for Windows servers and Windows workstations as well as enhanced integration for the Kaseya dashboard and management tools.

Karl Sice, General Manager - Pacific at Acronis said, "we're pleased to build on our already-strong relationship with Kaseya, the leading solution vendor in the managed service provider market. The Acronis and Kaseya relationship has been successful and we are excited about furthering our partnership with this close alignment of our strategic objectives and product development."
