Acronis Backup Advanced for Active Directory is the top-notch solution for protecting your Active Directory® database and domain controllers.
Powered by Acronis AnyData Technology, this product leverages patented, high-performance disk imaging to provide the fastest backups and the most flexible, reliable recovery available.
Now you can easily protect and instantly recover an entire domain controller (or individual AD database files), either locally or to a remote server.
Single-Pass Backups for Active Directory Domain Controllers
Acronis Backup Advanced for Active Directory provides deep integration with Windows and Active Directory, ensuring that specific AD database files (Ntds.dit, Edb.chk, Edb.log, Res.log, and %SystemRoot%\SYSVOL) are backed up along with the entire domain controller—all in one easy step!
AD-Aware Recovery Interface
Acronis automatically identifies your AD database and related files (including the SYSVOL folder), and provides AD-specific recovery capabilities. This ensures that you can recover your domain controller (or simply a component of it) as quickly as possible.
USN Rollback Management
Acronis automatically prevents Update Sequence Number (USN) rollback to ensure consistency across multiple domain controllers during a recovery process.
Direct Performance Management
Ensure optimal domain controller performance during backups! Acronis Backup Advanced for Active Directory lets you control your environment with bandwidth and disk-write speed throttling, to ensure good system performance during backups.
Flexible Recovery Destinations
Restore an entire Windows server to the same location, to new, dissimilar hardware, or to a virtual server. Acronis can 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 can restore backups to different hardware without complications.
Efficient Incremental Backups
Incremental backups identify only the changes made since the last backup, significantly reducing backup time and any impact on network bandwidth or backup storage.
Built-in block level data deduplication can be run on either the source or target side, minimizing data movement. This helps reduce the cost of additional storage and minimizes network loads.
Acronis’ flexible modular architecture allows you to add more Acronis Backup Advanced products to your core solution at any time. Start with your immediate needs, then, as your business grows, simply plug in additional products to protect any new servers or workstations—without having to install a whole new backup environment!
In the event of a hardware failure or natural disaster, Acronis’ patented disk-imaging backup approach ensures the fastest bare-metal restore. Recover an entire server in minutes, minimizing expensive downtime.
All Acronis Backup Advanced suite products are supported by a centralized management and reporting console. Manage and report on all backup operations for all physical and virtual machines from a single dashboard.
