Gartner estimates that only 35 percent of SMBs have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan in place and according to a recent NFIB
National Small Business Poll, man-made disasters affect 10 percent of small businesses; natural disasters have affected more than
30 percent of all small businesses in the U.S. Will your small business be a statistic?
Acronis® Backup helps you protect your entire system – even if you aren’t an IT expert. In the event of a disaster, Acronis Backup
provides fast and seamless recovery of individual files, application data, or a complete system – all from a single backup – letting you
get back to work in minutes. Powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine, Acronis Backup is a complete solution tailored to a specific
business system: servers, virtual machines, or individual PCs.
The Acronis AnyData Engine, built on advanced technology and fueled by over 100 patents, is the most innovative data protection
technology available for capturing, storing, recovering, controlling and accessing the critical information your business depends
on. By combining a patented disk-imaging technology with an easy-to-use interface, you can capture everything in one single step:
operating systems, applications, data, and more, allowing you to recover anything – from a single file to an entire server – with a few
simple clicks.

Disk Image Technology - The Acronis AnyData Engine allows you to create an exact image of your system and user data in
one-step. You then have the ability to recover the entire system or selected files, folders, and applications.
Disaster Recovery – Recover your entire system in minutes to the same location, to dissimilar hardware, or to a virtual
machine. Quickly restore data locally or remotely. In the event of hardware failure or natural disaster, recover an entire
system in minutes with Acronis’ fast bare-metal restore.
Multiple Backup Targets – Store backup copies in up to five different locations across local disks, network storage, and
cloud locations - including Acronis Cloud - to optimise your storage costs and maximise your recovery options in the event
of a disaster.
Incremental and Differential Backups - Only backup the changes made, saving time and optimising storage space and
network, disk and system performance.
Backup Replication and Staging – Upon completion of the backup process, the Acronis AnyData Engine automatically
replicates backup data between various storage locations, including Acronis Cloud. Staging automatically moves the
backup data to a new storage location when the retention period for the current storage media expires. Acronis deletes
older backups at the end of the retention period to save space for newly created backups.
