Acronis and SolarWinds Bring VMware vSphere Users Powerful and Easy-to-Use Management, Reporting and Protection
Acronis, a leading provider of disaster recovery and data protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced a collaboration with SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, to bring a comprehensive VMware vSphere management solution together with backup and recovery in one easy-to-use, affordable package. When purchased together, Acronis vmProtect and SolarWinds Virtualization Manager are available at a discounted MSRP to channel partners who are registered with the Acronis Global Partner Program.

"Acronis and SolarWinds share the philosophy that software should be easy to install and easy to manage," commented Blaine Raddon, General Manager Americas, Acronis. "This new collaboration makes it easy for channel partners to sell a more comprehensive solution."

"We hear from customers that maintaining the performance, availability and recoverability of their VMware environment is critical to them and that existing management suites are either just too expensive, too hard to use or lacking key capabilities," said Sanjay Castelino, VP and Market Leader, SolarWinds. "We believe there is a great opportunity for Acronis and SolarWinds to jointly provide a solution that is market-leading in each of those areas."

With an intuitive web-based interface, Acronis vmProtect efficiently integrates with VMware vCenter, allowing administrators to use one console to manage all their tasks. With advanced replication capability with failover and failback, and the ability to run a virtual machine directly from its backup, it dramatically improves the times to recover. Even in the event of total server failure, bare metal recovery (BMR) allows an entire machine to be recovered to dissimilar hardware, significantly reducing downtime.

SolarWinds' award-winning Virtualization Manager is a comprehensive virtualization management software solution that provides visibility into the virtual environment and the physical resources it depends on through unified performance monitoring, capacity planning, VM sprawl control, configuration management, and chargeback automation across an entire VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V infrastructure.

The package is available at an attractive MSRP of $999 per socket to registered partners.

Acronis and SolarWinds will be at the upcoming VMworld conference on Aug. 26 - 30 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. IT pros attending the show may stop by the Acronis booth to meet members of the Acronis and SolarWinds product teams and benefit from an Acronis vmProtect 7 and SolarWinds Virtualization Manager solution demonstration.
