There is no safer and easier way to keep your VMWare vSphere setup protected than creating an entire backup of the system using Acronis Backup for Virtual Host. It offers a fast and user-friendly solution that takes care of all of the hard work for you, whether you’re an expert or a complete novice. It captures the entire system, including the hypervisor, using Acronis’ industry-leading, patented disk-imaging solution to ensure that all data is kept safe. It also offers the fastest recovery method of any solution available on the market, working up to 100 times faster than many other solutions when you use the included vmFlashback feature. The restore process will extract your files, application information, virtual machines and everything else, so you can rest assured that nothing important will be forgotten about.

Universal Restore for Easy Data Migration

Acronis Backup for Virtual Host is designed to offer ease of use by completely eliminating the complexity involved in protecting the typical virtual operating environment. As such, users can enjoy unlimited P2V or V2V migrations between different systems. Installation and configuration sports a minimal learning curve, and you can access your data using any Internet-enabled device, including smartphones and tablets, using the streamlined, Web-based interface provided. It also offers easy browsing of your data and simple recovery routines thanks to deep integration with vCenter. Now included in all of Acronis’ data backup products, the Universal Restore function allows you to restore your backups to any machine, regardless of the host platform it’s running. This feature allows you to restore everything from files to applications and operating environments to entirely new systems with the same or different hardware.

Save Time with Exceptional Performance

The traditional methods of backing up and restoring your virtual machines are typically slow and cumbersome, but the ultra-fast recovery method works up to 100 times faster. For increased ease of use, you’ll be able to manage backup, replication and recovery tasks using the familiar VMWare vCenter interface as well. Deep integration with the storage APIs used by VMware ensures excellent performance with all data backup and restore routines across the entire ESXi environment. Using Changed Block Tracking (CBT) technology, Acronis Backup for Virtual Host will reduce the amount of storage space required as well to further increase backup and restore jobs. Additionally, agentless VM backups eliminate the necessity to install agents on each individual virtual machine, significantly reducing the management complexity that would otherwise be required.

Acronis Backup for Virtual Host provides many useful additional features for a fully versatile and scalable environment designed to meet the needs of businesses of any size. To reduce network bandwidth and data storage requirements, it supports incremental and differential backups as well as compression and deduplication. For development and testing purposes, advanced users will even be able to run a virtual machine from a backup itself.

Acronis Backup for Virtual Host supports VMware vSphere versions 6.7, 6.5, 6.0, 5.5, 5.1, 5.0 and 4.1, including vSphere Hypervisor (free ESXi)*. It supports almost any kind of hard drive or storage array as well as NAS systems and Acronis’ optional cloud storage service. Find out more at
