SWsoft Partners with Acronis for Storage Management Solution
September 29, 2004 - (HostReview.com) - SWsoft (www.sw-soft.com) announced a joint strategic partnership with Acronis, Inc. (www.acronis.com) to jointly develop and market Virtuozzo™ and Acronis True Image Server 8.0™ solutions for enterprises and hosting providers.
"From our unique convergence of storage and virtualization technologies, IT managers will be able to deploy, backup and utilize new servers much more quickly and efficiently, further driving down the cost of datacenter operations," said Acronis CEO Max Tsypliaev.
Enterprises will be able to provision new physical servers instantaneously using Acronis' award-winning disk imaging solution on both Linux and Windows platforms. Once deployed, the new Virtuozzo-powered servers can be partitioned into virtual servers to help better utilize a customer's server investment.
"Combining real-time disk imaging and backup capabilities with server virtualization is a powerful value proposition for enterprise and hosting customers," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft.
"Acronis True Image Server's disk cloning and disaster recovery capabilities make it possible to do bare-metal restores literally in minutes," noted Stephen Lawton, marketing director for Acronis. "Using Acronis' Drive Snapshot technology, IT managers can deploy a server disk image or provision a server in minutes, not the hours or days it would take to build a server disk from scratch, even if you had a file-based backup as a starting point."
Acronis True Image Server provides real-time server backup and bare-metal restore for Linux servers. Recognized by PC Magazine, Cnet and Zdnet as Editor's Choice for disk backup and recovery, key features include:
Acronis True Image Server 8.0 for Linux and Windows platforms currently is being shipped. Acronis True Image Server 8.0 for Linux and Windows Enterprises is expected to be released for beta testing in early October 2004.
