Acronis Leads Backup & Recovery for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization With Immediate Support for New Version Launched Today

Acronis Enables Easy and Secure Migration to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.1 With Certified Data Protection Solution

WOBURN, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- Acronis, a leading provider of data availability, accessibility and protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, announced today that Acronis Backup & Recovery® supports Red Hat® Enterprise Virtualization 3.1 to enable seamless data management in Red Hat virtual environments. This integration between Acronis' Unified Platform and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization's API provides a comprehensive data protection solution for Red Hat customers, with the ability to move data rapidly between different environments and enable business continuity through a single pane of glass.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, a comprehensive open source datacenter virtualization solution for servers and desktops, delivers business agility and continuity for critical Linux workloads at enormous scale and expands its capabilities today with the availability of its latest 3.1 release. With Acronis Backup & Recovery Virtual Edition for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, organizations with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environments can centrally manage data protection and recovery tasks in a single management console with unlimited P2V and V2V migrations.

Quru, a Red Hat UK Premier Partner, assists customers in lowering their virtualization costs while maintaining the performance and availability of business critical workloads. Managing Director, Roland Whitehead commented, "Our customers appreciate the ability to add Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization to existing virtualization environments, knowing that their systems can be efficiently migrated and their workloads are protected before they even start. The relationship between Acronis and Red Hat has made this a seamless process."

Bonham's Auctioneers, a customer of Quru, has already achieved better efficiency using Acronis and Red Hat solutions together. "By deploying Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization with Acronis Backup & Recovery we were able to significantly lower the cost, compared to the previous proprietary virtualization. This has enabled us to enjoy higher levels of service up-time while reducing the cost to our business," said Malcolm Barber, Group CEO, Bonham's Auctioneers.

"Enterprises choosing Red Hat's industry-leading solutions need a comprehensive approach to data protection in these environments," said Acronis CEO and President Alex Pinchev. "Through our continued collaboration with Red Hat, the enterprise now has a complete infrastructure solution, providing them with the levels of data access and availability necessary in today's demanding IT landscape. As of December 2012, Acronis Backup & Recovery Virtual Edition for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization was the most downloaded app from the Red Hat Marketplace in 2012, demonstrating the need and popularity of the integrated approach."

This integration enables new capabilities including remote installation of Acronis agents on Linux machines, as well as the automatic discovery of Red Hat virtual machines in the Acronis management server. Furthermore, it adds the ability for Red Hat customers to access additional Acronis Backup and Recovery functionality 'on demand,' as their environment changes. This makes it easier for organizations to manage their entire infrastructure through a single interface while maintaining a high level of business continuity.

"Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization takes a big step forward today with our 3.1 release," said Chuck Dubuque, senior manager, Product Marketing, Red Hat Virtualization Infrastructure. "Our collaboration with Acronis to bring further capabilities to enterprises' virtualized infrastructures continues to evolve as we enhance our platform and we're excited that Acronis is supporting our 3.1 release and technologies today at launch."
