Acronis International GmbH is a software company that makes computer backup, disaster recovery, bare-metal restore, system deployment, and storage management products for Windows and Linux systems.

History[edit]

Founded in 2001, Acronis is a privately held company.[10] Originally focused on disk partitioning and boot loader software, they moved into backup and disaster recovery software based on disk imaging technology. Their flagship product line was Acronis True Image until 2009, at which time it was replaced in the corporate environment by Acronis Backup & Recovery 10.

In December 2013, Acronis announced the launch of an official research and development wing, Acronis Labs, a research initiative split between its Arlington, VA and Moscow, Russia offices.[11]

Products[edit]

Acronis provides backup, disaster recovery, and partitioning software for both the home, and small and medium enterprises. Their core focus is working with disk blocks, which provides the technology for additional products such as system deployment and disk partitioning.
