The partnership is offering the Acronis Backup and Recovery Server (ABRS) OEM software bundle program for SMBs, employing VessRAID 1000 Series storage systems.

RAID storage solutions provider PROMISE Technology has announced the release of the Acronis Backup & Recovery Server (ABRS) OEM software bundle program with the VessRAID 1000 Series storage systems.

PROMISE and Acronis Team Up on Disaster Recovery & Data Protection SolutionThe ABRS OEM for VessRAID 1000 Series is a customized third-party disaster recovery and data protection software solution for physical, virtual, and cloud environments. This software build will detect the VessRAID device presence during the installation process and provide limited data backup and recovery functions.

“For SMBs today, backing up and protecting data is still not an easy task. Technology can be complex and daunting. With the OEM bundle, both Acronis and PROMISE are committed to provide SMB users an easy-to-use and affordable solution for the protection of their digital assets,” says Acronis APAC president Bill Taylor-Mountford.

The Acronis software bundle is designed to increase data services coverage via a single, free-of-charge license when a licensed server is installed on a host machine to which the VessRAID storage system is attached by FC, iSCSI, or SAS connection. The bundle also provides an upgrade kit for additional, unlimited licenses to enable unlimited number of backup client installations.

“The bundle makes client application backup and restore easy for SMB users when used with our VessRAID 1000 Series,” says PROMISE Technology CEO Alice Chang. “The strategy of our storage business is to deliver storage products that help customers run mission-critical business applications better and this is what we are doing now.”

Core features delivered in the OEM build include:

  • Acronis Drive Snapshot
  • Multi-Volume Snapshots
  • Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) Support
  • Backup Scheduling
  • Bootable Backup Media
  • Individual Files Restoring from Image or Bare-metal Restoring

For businesses that have already purchased, just purchased, or are about to purchase the VessRAID 1000 Series storage systems, the Acronis single-license software is available through distribution in the form of a physical CD bundle or web download for implementation. The upgrade kit is available only through the PROMISE global network of authorized distributors and resellers.
