Red Hat, Inc. and Acronis today announced that Acronis’ flagship virtualisation product has been certified on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
With their expanded partnership, Acronis, a Red Hat ISV Partner since 2006, has certified its Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced Server Virtual Edition on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization. This certification enables organisations to simplify their physical-to-virtual server consolidation efforts to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
In addition, the solution, which is based on Acronis’ advanced disk imaging technology, allows users to back up an unlimited number of virtual machines on one server host and supports unlimited and seamless migrations (P2V, V2V, and V2P) that can be performed instantly or on a scheduled basis.
“Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced Server Virtual Edition is a sophisticated software tool that solves many of the problems associated with the backup of virtualised servers. This joint certification is indicative of two players who are bearing increasing weight in the virtualisation arena. The P2V, V2V, and V2P migration capabilities and ability to back up unlimited virtual machines on one host server is a clear benefit for customers,” said Tim Stammers, Senior Analyst at Ovum.
Karl Sice, General Manager – Pacific at Acronis, said, “We have worked closely with Red Hat as an ISV partner since joining Red Hat's partner program in 2006 and have seen great demand and adoption for our solutions on Red Hat platforms. Certifying Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced Server Virtual Edition on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization gives our joint customers even further choice and flexibility for their virtual environments.”
“Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization's robust ecosystem continues to expand to provide our customers with the flexibility they need for their virtualized systems,” said Navin Thadani, senior director, Virtualization Business at Red Hat. “By certifying Acronis' virtualization solutions on our Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization platform, we are expanding the value of our joint solutions to enterprises around the globe.”
