Complete Linux Server Backup and Data Protection
Acronis Backup Advanced for Linux Server is the state-of-the-art solution for protecting your Linux® server environment.
Powered by Acronis AnyData Technology, this product uses patented, block-level disk imaging to provide the fastest backups and most flexible, reliable recovery options available.
Now you can quickly and easily restore individual files/folders, application data, or an entire server—all from the same backup. Acronis Backup Advanced offers the flexibility of restoring your server to its original location, to entirely new, dissimilar hardware, or to a virtual machine.
Included with all Acronis backup solutions, this unique data recovery technology gives you the convenient ability to instantly restore backups to any machine, regardless of platform. Now you can restore files, configurations, applications, or an entire system to the same hardware, to different hardware, or to a virtual server—all with a few simple clicks!
Full Image Backups
Acronis Backup Advanced includes block-level, image-based backups that quickly and efficiently capture consistent application and operating system data. Acronis also automatically skips unused data blocks to provide faster backups with smaller storage requirements.
Efficient Incremental Backups
Incremental backups identify only the changes made since the last backup, significantly reducing backup time and any impact on network bandwidth or backup storage.
Recover your entire Linux server in minutes—to the same location, to new, dissimilar hardware, or to a virtual server. Acronis can quickly restore data locally or remotely.
Acronis Backup Advanced's built-in source and target variable block size data deduplication reduces the volume of backup data by up to 90%. This maximizes backup speed, puts significantly less load on your network, and reduces backup storage requirements.
Acronis Backup Advanced includes a centralized management and reporting console. Manage and report on all backup operations for all physical and virtual machines, and applications from a single dashboard.
Multiple Backup Targets
Acronis Backup Advanced writes backups directly to tape, disk, and cloud locations providing multiple backup storage options and full flexibility for recovery from multiple sources and locations.
Direct Performance Management
Maintain optimal server performance during backups! Acronis Backup Advanced for Linux lets you control your environment with bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling, ensuring uninterrupted system performance during backup routines.
Acronis’ flexible modular architecture allows you to add more Acronis Backup Advanced products to your core solution at any time. Start with your immediate needs, then, as your business grows, simply plug in additional products to protect any new servers or workstations—without having to install a whole new backup environment!
Acronis Startup Recovery Manager
Bootable rescue utility that you can launch by pressing F11 during system startup.
Store an exact copy of your disk or volume, sector by sector (including unused space).
Simplify management tasks by remotely installing and configuring agents and updates on your servers.
Remote access allows you to easily restore your network-based machines.
Disaster Recovery Plan
After each backup, Acronis can automatically generate a Disaster Recovery Plan document that provides detailed, step-by-step instructions to help you get your system up and running quickly.
Browsing and Mounting Backups
Browse backups in Windows Explorer as if they were ordinary folders, and simply drag-and-drop or copy-paste files/folders from them. You can even mount disk images as a drive letter in either read-only or read/write mode.
Easily migrate a server between any physical and virtual platforms (P2P, P2V, V2V, V2P) thanks to Acronis’ proprietary Unified Backup Format (which enables any backup to be recovered to any server in any location).
Firmware and File System Support
Acronis provides full support for BIOS and UEFI firmware interfaces (as well as all major file systems and partitioning methods). This ensures complete Linux server recovery.
Define pre or post backup and data-capture commands to integrate Acronis Backup Advanced with other applications (or to temporarily stop some services).
No Reboot Required
No need to schedule downtime and reboot to complete an Acronis Backup installation.
Acronis AnyData technology provides advanced backup and recovery capabilities specifically engineered to meet the needs of small and medium IT environments. Acronis’ disk image backup technology enables a single-pass backup that captures data at the block level, is smart enough to eliminate unused blocks, and can recover individual files & folders, application data, or an entire server in minutes. There is no need to run multiple backups to support various recovery capabilities with Acronis.

Complete and Flexible New Generation Data Protection
Full Disk and Virtual Machine Imaging
Advanced snapshot-based image backup and recovery of physical and virtual machines. Patented snapshot technology speeds up backup and minimizes system overhead, so protected system does not have to be put off-line during backup.
Unified Backup Format
Data is stored to your choice of disk, tape or cloud using our patented Unified Backup Format optimized for speed, data compression, deduplication and flexibility. High efficiency algorithms reduce storage, IO and CPU requirement and enable unified, fast, easy and granular access to multiple versions of files, applications and systems across all workloads.
Single-pass Block-level Data Management
Eliminates the need for multiple agents for application, file and block-level data capture and dramatically increases speed and efficiency by preserving metadata in Universal Backup Format.
From a single-pass backup, granularly recover at the object, file, application or system level.
Flexible, secure and scalable centralized management, monitoring and reporting across hundreds of virtual and physical machines from a single Acronis Management Server. Easily manage all your backup policies, groups and backup vaults. Backup activities can also be automatically distributed over your backup window to avoid overloading your networks.
Hybrid Cloud and On-Premise Backup
Flexibly backup locally to disk or tape for quick recovery, or to the cloud for Disaster Recovery from a remote location, or to multiple locations. Automatically move backups between locations for varied retention time or long-term archival storage. Chose cloud-based Backup-as-a-Service solutions and let local experts manage your data protection. Same industry leading technology, delivered the way you want it - cloud, hybrid or on-premise.
Room to Grow
AnyData technology has little overhead when you are not using centralized management or using it just for a few machines, but could be scaled up efficiently to support thousands of servers and provides you with flexibility of adding new functionality at any time.
In the event of hardware failure, Acronis’s Universal Restore technology allows bare-metal recovery of your entire system to the same location, to new hardware of a different make/model, or to a virtual server in minutes—without the usual complications.
Tracks operating system I/O requests and restores blocks when the OS needs them, continuing to restore other blocks in the background. This dramatically saves time and allows booting a machine and starting applications long before a restore is complete.
Flexible Any-to-Any Migration
The combination of unified backup format, Acronis Universal Restore, and incremental backup of live machines makes it very easy to migrate servers between any physical, virtual and cloud platforms and any locations, local or remote.
Compression and deduplication
Saves time, space and network bandwidth for any backup
Bare-metal restore enables recovering an entire server in minutes, either to the same or dissimilar hardware or virtual server. If the new hardware is different, Acronis injects the new drivers required to support the new hardware.
Converting any system backups to any VM Disk format
Effectively enabling zero-time VM recovery, you will just need to start the VM to recover your physical, virtual or cloud system
High-grade encryption (AES-256) is available as option to protect any data and any communication channel from unwanted attention
