Universal Restore

Now included in all Acronis backup products, this unique data recovery technology gives you the convenient ability to instantly restore backups to any machine, regardless of platform. Now you can restore files, configurations, applications, or an entire system to the same hardware, to different hardware, or to a virtual server—all with a few simple clicks

Disk Image Technology

Disk-level snapshots save complete images of a disk or volume in one simple step (including the operating system, applications, and data). This technology works physical systems, virtual systems and applications.

Centralized Management

Manage all backup operations for both physical and virtual machines from a single, central unified dashboard. Create and assign backup plans to one or more machines, review status updates, and receive alerts—all from a single pane of glass.

Compression and Deduplication

Reduce costs, minimize data movement and efficiently utilize storage and network infrastructure with source and target deduplication and compression.

Multiple Backup Destinations

Enable flexible and reliable recovery storing your backups in up to 5 different locations, locally and in the cloud. Combine local disks, attached storage, tape, network storage, and/or cloud locations to minimize your storage costs and provide multiple recovery options in the case of disaster.

Acronis Cloud Storage

Acronis Backup Advanced includes secure, offsite cloud backup to the Acronis cloud. Simply add a subscription to your purchase to fortify your backup plan and implement hybrid local and cloud data protection.

Additional Features

Complete Virtual Server Protection

Acronis Backup Advanced products support any popular virtualization technology, providing data protection and migration capabilities between various hypervisors and physical machines.

Bare-Metal Restore

Our disk image technology allows you to create an exact replica of the system and user data, and then restore that replica to a new drive in case of critical drive failure.

Encrypted Storage and Communication

Critical backup data can be encrypted with industry-standard 256-bit AES algorithm. All data transmissions are performed over an SSL-encrypted channel by default.

Backup Operations Scheduling

Acronis backups run automatically based on your specific schedule, but they also offer the flexibility of being triggered by specific events (user logging on/off, machines being powered on/off, and so on).

Incremental and Differential Backups

Our incremental & differential backups identify only the changes made since the last backup, significantly reducing backup time and the impact on network usage and backup storage.

Backup Schemes

Acronis Backup Advanced products have a set of predefined, industry-standard schemes (such as Grandfather-Father-Son or Tower-of-Hanoi). Custom schemes may be configured with advanced settings.

Wake-On-LAN Support

Wake-on-LAN functionality will automatically turn on a machine when it is time to run a backup. This ensures execution of the backup plan for that machine, independent of its power state.

Catalogues and Indexing

Backup indexing and centralized catalogues help you quickly find a particular version of disk image, file, folder, application database, or individual data item—even if backups are split across different storage media.

Validation and Consolidation

Manual or scheduled automatic validation of backups ensures system and user data are recoverable. Consolidation of incremental backups provides the ability to save additional storage space.


Backup operations may be limited with network bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling to minimize the impact of running backups during production hours.

Storage and Retention Policies

Backup data may be automatically moved between various storage locations, and older backups may be deleted to save space for newly created backups.
