Acronis adds sync and mobile support to True Image 2013


Acronis has boosted cloud storage support to the latest version of its disk-based backup software for home users, Acronis True Image 2013.

Acronis True Image 2013 provides mobile and web-based access to files and folders stored on the company's servers.

Free apps for iOS and Android augment the backup program with mobile access.

"Last year we pushed the market forward by introducing file synchronisation to disk based backup and recovery," said vice president of product management Dmitri Joukovski.

"That feature was very popular amongst our users, and now we have enhanced it and expanded the capabilities through mobile device enablement.

"Our customers are early adopters of technology and appreciate the innovation and mobility that Acronis is bringing to their networks."

Other features include automatic incremental backups, file encryption, the ability to reboot even if there's a problem with Windows, provision for a backup partition on the system drive, the ability to use large (greater than 2TB) drives where they are unsupported by Windows, and rollback after restoration.

The Acronis Plus Pack adds the ability to restore a backup to dissimilar hardware.

True Image Home 2013 costs $69.99, and works with all versions of Windows from XP to Windows 8. A 30-day free trial is offered.

An upgrade from previous versions costs $39.99, and a three-PC licence is available for $99.99.

The Plus Pack is $39.99, and a True Image Online subscription for 250GB of cloud storage (which can be shared across up to five PCs) costs $59.95 per year or $5.95 per month. A one month free trial is available.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
