SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF., August 3, 2004 â Acronis, Inc., the technological leader in storage management solutions, launched Acronis True Image Server for Linux 8.0, the latest member in its expanding family of award-winning server disk imaging, backup, and bare-metal restore software.
                This is the industryâs first native application that allows Linux systems administrators and network managers to create the exact disk image of live servers running any Linux file system to make a complete backup, providing a comprehensive and cost-effective server protection solution.
                New features include the ability to create the backup disk image natively in Linux operating from an X Window System graphical interface or a command line, support for the EXT2/3, ReiserFS, XFS and JFS file systems and the Linux SWAP partition, and support for Red Hat, SuSE, Mandrakesoft Linux and other major Linux distributions.
        In addition to its disk imaging capabilities, Acronis True Image Server for Linux incorporates all of the features required to clone, deploy and upgrade server disk drives.
        âLinux systems run a huge percentage of datacenter and Web servers worldwide, but backup options have been inadequate for those wanting an image-based solution,â said Max Tsypliaev, president of Acronis, Inc. âThe cost of server downtime could be thousands and even
millions dollars per hour,â he continued. âWhen youâre looking at a return on investment, being
up and running in minutes versus hours or days makes ROI calculations a slam dunk for a disk imaging solution such as this.â
        âLinux has become a mainstream, high-performance operating system and it requires mainstream, high-performance backup capabilities,â added Stephen Lawton, marketing director at Acronis. âAs a leading operating system for Web- and intranet-based server applications, Linux has become mission-critical to a very large number of corporations. Acronis True Image Server for Linux is the industryâ first solution to offer a full product feature set and the speed that exceeds the demanding needs of IT managers and systems administrators.â
                Acronis True Image Server 8.0 for Linux is available now. The suggested list price is $699. More information about the product is available at http://www.acronis.com/products/.
