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.
Protect Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft SQL Server, and Microsoft Active Directory domain controllers included in your Microsoft Windows SBS Essentials configuration. Acronis Backup also provides granular mailbox recovery for Exchange, and site content recovery for SharePoint.

Near-continuous data protection for Microsoft Exchange Server provides more recovery points and minimizes the possibility of data loss between backups.
Manage backups of your Windows SBS Essentials server and all your laptops/desktops from the same unified management interface.
Recover your entire Windows SBS Essentials backup in minutes—to the same location, to entirely new, dissimilar hardware, or to a virtual server. Acronis can quickly restore data locally or remotely using a Linux Kernel, WinPE, or a PXE server to start the newly recovered server. Acronis’ driver injection and SID change capabilities will get you up and running quickly on new hardware.
Built-in source-side and target-side block-level 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.
Multiple Backup Targets
Store backup copies in up to 5 different locations for flexible, reliable recovery options. Includes support for local disks, networked storage, and offsite cloud storage.
In the event of hardware failure, Acronis’s Universal Restore technology allows bare-metal recovery of your entire system to the same location, to new hardware of a different make/model, or to a virtual server in minutes—without the usual complications.
Acronis Backup to Cloud
All Acronis Backup products have direct access to secure, offsite storage in the Acronis cloud. Simply add a subscription to your purchase to fortify your backup storage plan and double your data protection.
Direct Performance Management
Ensure optimal server performance during backups. Acronis Backup for Windows SBS Essentials enables you to control your environment with bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling to ensure system performance during backups.
Acronis Active Restore
Active Restore will copy only the files required for fast recovery, allowing users to get back to work while the rest of the backup is being restored.
Manually exclude non-essential files and folders from your backups to save time and storage.
