Acronis to Showcase New Backup and Recovery Developments at VMworld 2012

Gold-Sponsor Acronis will Exhibit at booth #1701 and Speak on a Panel, Discussing How Effective Backup and Disaster Recovery Can be Achieved Amidst Increasing IT Complexity and Change

Woburn, MA - August 15, 2012: Acronis, a leading provider of disaster recovery and data protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced that it will be showcasing the newest beta versions of its Acronis Backup & Recovery and vmProtect products as a gold-level sponsor on booth #1701 at VMworld 2012, August 26-29, in San Francisco. Acronis' recently announced partner SolarWinds will also be at Acronis' booth #1701 to demonstrate its VMware vSphere management solutions for channel partners and customers.

"In today's dynamic network environments, enterprises' IT needs are likely to be very different now than in six months," said Dmitri Joukovski, Acronis Vice President of Product Management. "With rising storage costs and ever growing data volumes, organizations are looking for new strategies to manage their virtual, physical and cloud networks. But, even amidst such increasing IT change, this doesn't mean enterprises' backup and recovery needs to be equally complex. The ability to quickly and efficiently protect, find and recover both static and dynamic data in collaborative spaces is achievable with the right solutions and comprehensive planning."

Alex Sukennik, Acronis Senior Director of Global Cloud Services, will also be speaking at VMworld 2012 on the panel "I Did It My Way," Wednesday, August 29th at 8:30am PDT. Alongside Vince Ada, WHA Insurance IT Director, and other prominent panelists, Sukennik will discuss how challenges of data migration and management can be overcome to achieve effective and efficient backup and disaster recovery.
