Backup and Protect Your Windows Server Environment
Acronis Cyber Backup Advanced for Windows Server is the best-in-class solution for protecting your Windows® environment.
Powered by Acronis AnyData Technology, this solution can back up your entire Windows server in a single pass, delivering dramatically faster protection and the most flexible, reliable recovery available.
Now you can quickly and easily restore individual files/folders, application data, or an entire server—all from the same backup. Acronis Cyber Backup Advanced also 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 Cyber 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
Block-level, image-based backups capture all application and operating system data in one efficient step. Unlike other backup solutions, Acronis Cyber Backup Advanced automatically skips unused data blocks to provide faster results with less 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.
Quickly restore only what you need! Recover granular files, folders, volumes, or a complete server—all from a single image backup.
Recover your entire Windows server in minutes—to the same location, to new, dissimilar hardware, or to a virtual server. Acronis Cyber Backup Advanced can quickly restore data locally or remotely using Linux Kernel or WinPE media, or a PXE server to start the new server. Acronis’ driver injection and SID change capabilities will get you up and running quickly on new hardware.
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 Cyber Backup Advanced includes a unified centralized management and reporting console. Manage and report on all backup operations for all physical and virtual machines from a single dashboard.

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.
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
