Yes, we work with Acronis!
The exponential growth of data increases the need to store and protect this valuable company resource. In a recent TrueNAS customer survey, we found half of our customers backup to TrueNAS as part of protecting their business-critical data and Acronis was one of the most popular backup solutions used. So, we partnered with Acronis and built a solution that exceeds our mutual customers’ storage, backup, and recovery expectations.
In addition, we ran a series of tests using the latest version of TrueNAS 9.10 and Acronis Backup Advanced 11.7. We ran Acronis Backup on a Microsoft Windows Server 2012 VM hosted on VMware ESXi 6.0. Acronis backed up the local drive and recovery partition and used an iSCSI connection to TrueNAS to store the backup files.
Here is what a typical deployment of Acronis looks like:
Our testing shows that the joint TrueNAS and Acronis solution fits seamlessly into your environment to protect all mission-critical systems. Also, our survey also showed that about half the customers deploy virtualized applications. TrueNAS certifications include Citrix XenServer, leading Open Source hypervisors, Microsoft Hyper-V, and VMware vSphere. TrueNAS keeps the Acronis backup images safe, while Acronis protects every common operating system, application, and hypervisor.
