Acronis Makes It Easy to Migrate to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0

Acronis, a leading provider of data protection and disaster recovery solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced that Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 Virtual Edition has been enhanced to include new features for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 and can be previewed from the new Red Hat Market Place forum. A free trial of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 Virtual Edition is also available exclusively on Red Hat Market Place and includes the migration of three production workloads from physical or other virtual environments to the new Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 platform.

Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 Virtual Edition supports Windows and Linux servers and all major virtualization solutions including VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 in one solution, with unlimited P2V and V2V migrations included. Acronis' integration of its Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 Virtual Edition with the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization API enables new capabilities for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 and will help to accelerate and simplify the journey to a Red Hat open source virtual environment. This includes the remote installation of Acronis agents onto Linux machines and the automatic discovery and display of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 virtual machines in the Acronis Management Server. This makes it easier for Red Hat customers to provide comprehensive disaster recovery and data protection for their whole Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment. Acronis is the only backup and recovery vendor to have achieved Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0-Certified status at the time of launch.

Duke Cancer Institute standardized on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization in 2010 and has been using Acronis Backup & Recovery Virtual Edition to migrate its critical servers and data to the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment. "Because Acronis Backup & Recovery Virtual edition supports multiple hypervisors and enables P2V and V2V migrations, it took away the worry about some platform-specific issues we encountered previously," commented Jeff Allred, Network Services Manager at Duke Cancer Institute. "Using Acronis Backup & Recovery Virtual Edition resolved the road blocks in our original path to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and I am confident that we will have a seamless experience when we upgrade to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0."

"Red Hat is focused on providing value and choice to enterprises adopting a server virtualization strategy," said Navin Thadani, senior director, Virtualization Business at Red Hat. "Our customers have benefitted from the migration, disaster recovery and data protection capabilities within Acronis Backup & Recovery, and now we can help accelerate their journey to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 through our continuing relationship with one of the leading vendors in this market."

The new version of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 Virtual Edition for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 and the free 15 day trial is available via the Red Hat Market Place http://marketplace.redhat.com/rhev.
