Acronis True Image Echo Workstation Named 2008 Community Choice Award Winner by Windows IT Pro

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - Acronis® Inc. (, provider of affordable, scalable storage management and disaster recovery software, today announced that its Acronis True Image Echo Workstation with Acronis Universal Restore was named a winner of the "2008 Community Choice Awards" in the Disk Imaging Software category by Penton Media's Windows IT Pro®.

Acronis True Image allows users to create an exact image of a hard disk -- including all the computer data, operating system, and programs -- for complete system backup and disk cloning. After a crash, the user can restore the entire system or simply replace lost files and folders from the disk backup. With the addition of Acronis Universal Restore, the user can perform a bare-metal restore to different hardware and have their workstation in service again quickly.

"The 2008 Community Choice Awards continues our tradition of honoring products that our readers tell us are most worthy of recognition," said Jeff Lewis, group publisher of Windows IT Pro. "These products measure up where it counts most -- in the businesses, agencies, and institutions that rely on them to deliver what they promise."

Windows IT Pro forum visitors and several Windows user groups were asked to vote on their product preferences in seven broad technology categories.

"This recognition by Windows IT Pro is particularly sweet because it comes from users themselves," said Walter Scott, CEO of Acronis. "They understand what it's like to have a system crash and know the value of having a recovery system in place so they'll be ready when and if it happens again."

"The voters are tough, in-the-trenches critics," Lewis continued. "They demand solid value and performance from the products they use day after day. The 2008 Community Choice Award winners can feel proud that the products and services they develop have earned the respect and recognition of the IT world's most knowledgeable and exacting professionals."
