Acronis Releases E-Book: "Business Continuity with Microsoft Windows Server 2008"

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) - Acronis®, Inc. (http://www.acronis.com), a provider of affordable, scalable storage management and disaster recovery software, today announced the release of an e-book titled "Business Continuity with Microsoft Windows Server 2008," which provides business owners with a comprehensive overview of backup, recovery and business continuity best practices on the new version of Microsoft Server.

Authored by Danielle and Nelson Ruest, the e-book is excerpted from "Microsoft Windows Server 2008: The Complete Reference," published by McGraw-Hill, and helps IT administrators working with Windows Server 2008 (WS08) design and deploy practical disaster recovery and business continuity strategies. An appendix included with the e-book outlines how to further protect systems using Acronis technology.

The e-book and the Acronis appendix, available as a PDF file, combine to provide a wealth of knowledge on business continuity, disaster recovery and systems management.

"You will be ready to meet the challenges of disaster recovery so that your operations can continue," said the Ruests, both Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) working for Resolutions Enterprises, a consulting firm based in Victoria, BC, Canada, focused on IT infrastructure design. "In addition, you will be taking advantage of the most advanced IT strategies to build a secure and highly available network services infrastructure," they added.

"Disasters happen; technology fails, so IT departments need to be ready for every potential interruption," said Robert Thaler, senior marketing communications director at Acronis. "Disaster recovery is more than simply backing up data; it's about building a fail-safe plan for your entire network so that any system can be restored to a known, working condition quickly and efficiently without worrying about the underlying infrastructure. If you are working with Windows Server 2008, this e-book should be in your library."

A $14.95 value, the e-book and the Acronis appendix are available for free as a PDF file at http://www.acronis.com/bcmebook/pr.
