Acronis Releases Acronis True Image Virtual Edition in A/NZ

  • 15 July, 2008 09:13

<p><b>SYDNEY, Aust., July 15, 2008 — </b>Acronis® Inc. (<u>http://www.acronis.com.au</u>), a provider of affordable, scalable storage management and disaster recovery software, today released Acronis True Image Virtual Edition in Australia and New Zealand - a full-functioned, cost-effective and scalable solution for organisations that need to backup, restore or test more than four virtual servers on a single physical server.</p>
<p>Acronis True Image Virtual Edition is available now for $2,999 per physical server. The more virtual machines users create on a host, the lower the price/VM for enterprise-class disaster recovery protection. There are no limits or additional charges for backing up and restoring new virtual machines. Whether an organisation is backing up five or 500 virtual machines, as long as they all reside on the same physical server, the cost remains the same.</p>
<p>Many competing products charge a licensing fee for each operating system, processor, or virtual server. As a result, it can become extremely expensive for an organisation to build, test, migrate and manage a virtual machine infrastructure.</p>
<p>“Organisations frequently struggle with accurately predicting software costs and successfully auditing licensing compliance for applications running in virtual environments,” said Chris Wolf, senior analyst with Burton Group. “Vendors that offer flexible licensing terms which allow organisations to run unlimited virtual instances of an application per physical server instance, or offer the option to license per virtual machine when few application instances are needed, clearly understand the management challenges faced by their end users. Vendors that demonstrate awareness of virtualisation’s nuances through both their technology and licensing policies should be strongly considered over those that do not offer comparable solutions.”</p>
<p>Bill Taylor-Mountford, General Manager of Acronis A/NZ said: “Common sense tells us there’s a better way to license software than charging the customer every time they create a new virtual machine. Straightforward pricing based on the number of physical servers is easily understood and can be budgeted and measured. Virtual Edition delivers leading disk-imaging price/performance to organisations requiring disaster recovery protection in a high volume virtual machine environment.”</p>

<p><b>Pricing and Availability</b></p>
<p>Acronis True Image Virtual Edition is $2,999 per physical server including Acronis Universal Restore™. Acronis Universal Restore allows organisations to recover server images to dissimilar virtual hardware, regardless of the operating system or installed components. The product is currently available in Australia and New Zealand.</p>
<p>Customers who require disaster recovery protection for less than five virtual machines per physical server can purchase the Acronis True Image standard server edition.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
