Digital data is often the most valuable asset in the modern company. Without it, operations will come to a halt very quickly. If a data loss incident is particularly serious, it might even result in the company closing its doors to business for good. That’s why you can’t afford to take any risks when it comes to keeping your data safe from threats such as ransomware or accidental deletion. And there’s no better way to do that than by creating a complete byte-by-byte image of your entire server environment. That way, you don’t leave anything to chance. By backing up your Windows Server with Acronis Backup for Server, you keep all your virtual machines, files, apps, and other data safe on a storage device or network of your choice or even the cloud itself for extra protection.
Keep downtime to a minimum
When people think about backup, they’re often only thinking about the files and folders which need to be backed up and where they’ll be safest. Those are, of course, extremely important factors. However, businesses especially also need to think about their recovery times. If, for example, your Windows Server environment goes offline, your employees might be completely unable to do their jobs, or your customers might not be able to access or use an essential system. All the while, the company is losing money and perhaps even damaging its reputation. That’s why recovery times are often just as important as recovery points as well. Acronis Backup for Server keeps any downtime to a minimum with efficient recovery tools which allow you to get individual files, folders, applications, or virtual computing resources.
Use a comprehensive solution
Acronis Backup for Server lets you protect and defend data on any Windows Server environment, whether it exists on a bare-metal server, in a virtual machine, or hosted in the cloud. The backup solution lets you choose any destination for keeping your backup archives but, for best results, you’ll want to have at least one off-site location in addition to a local backup or two. For example, Acronis Backup for Server can automatically back up data to a local storage area network or network-attached storage device. At the same time, it can synchronize your backups with a cloud destination, including both private and public cloud facilities like AWS, Azure, and Google. The recovery process is granular no matter which storage system you use for backup, which means you can prioritize easily. For example, if you need to recover many terabytes of data, it will take some time. In such cases, you might want to recover mission-critical files first, which you can do before recovering everything else from the single backup.
