IT Managers Now Have Full System Migration and Disaster Recovery/Backup Solution for Both Virtual and Physical Computers

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2007) - Starting today, users can backup and restore both physical and virtual servers using a single application with the general availability of Acronis True Image™ Echo from Acronis®, Inc. (, a provider of affordable, scalable storage management and disaster recovery software.

Acronis True Image Echo operates seamlessly with all Windows® and Linux®-based servers or desktops, whether they are physical or virtual. Acronis also supports major virtualization operating systems such as VMware®, Microsoft®, and Parallels®.

"The need to deliver a single product that meets the challenges associated with backup and disaster recovery as well as system migration between the physical and virtual worlds is a requirement of today's IT managers," said Walter Scott, CEO of Acronis.
