Acronis Backup & Recovery Named Virtualization Review’s 2013 Editor’s Choice for Business Continuity

WOBURN, MA - January 24, 2013 - Virtualization Review has named Acronis Backup & Recovery® as an Editor's Choice recipient of the Virtualization Review Reader's Choice Awards in Business Continuity. The 2013 awards are chosen by readers of the publication, and presented to vendors in 16 categories ranging from virtualization management and cloud infrastructure to business continuity and virtualization automation.

"To be recognized by Virtualization Review as a leader in business continuity solutions validates our market direction for 2013 and beyond," said Dmitri Joukovski, Acronis vice president of product management. "We understand that at the core of good business continuity is data protection. Data is the lifeblood of any organization and, with our Acronis Backup & Recovery technology, we are committed to helping companies achieve the best data protection available for increasingly complex IT environments - whether physical, virtual or cloud."

Email invitations were sent to 20,000 Virtualization Review readers in October 2012 to vote on more than 446 products. Responses were collected during a two-week period. A team of editors reviewed the results to ensure that the votes were cast by storage buyers only and not by vendors. Acronis received the Editor's Choice Award in one of the most competitive categories for its innovative solution and commitment to excellence.

"In the course of sitting through an endless stream of briefings with virtualization and cloud vendors, I almost always find that when I ask vendors to list their primary competitors, they usually say there really isn't anyone else who does exactly what they do," said Bruce Hoard, Virtualization Review editor in chief. "The fact is a lot of vendors are shooting for the same goals, but in different ways. That's where the annual Virtualization Review Reader's Choice Awards and Ultimate Buyer's Guide enables users to assess hundreds of products in one, central location."

Acronis Backup & Recovery protects and optimizes companies' data while maximizing uptime with one, comprehensive, easy-to-use solution that delivers speed, reliability, simplicity and cost savings. Acronis Backup & Recovery is built on a unified platform that supports backup and recovery at both the file and system levels, as well as data protection for physical, virtual and cloud environments. It also supports various backup media, including disk, tape and cloud targets for off-site replication. Through one integrated solution, Acronis Backup & Recovery gives businesses the unified backup, disaster recovery and data protection they need in today's ever-changing and increasingly complex world.

The winners are highlighted in the December 2012/January 2013 issue. A downloadable PDF of the article is also available at VirtualizationReview.com.
