Acronis AnyData Engine
The vendor bases many of its products on the Acronis AnyData Engine, which was released in 2014 to handle virtual and physical server protection. The engine is meant to combine many data backup and protection features for use on different servers and operating systems (OSes). As the name applies, one appeal of the product is that it is compatible with many various forms of data.
The Acronis AnyData Engine runs on Windows and Linux OSes and virtual servers, including Citrix XenServer, KVM, Microsoft Hyper-V, Oracle VM and VMware ESXi. The engine also supports many file types and common applications, including Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint and Active Directory.
Acronis products running on the AnyData Engine include the following features:
2. Built-in compression and deduplication to reduce storage space and bandwidth usage.
3. Built-in AES-256-level encryption that can be applied to data as desired.
4. A Universal Restore capability that allows an entire server to be restored to original or new hardware.
