    1. 1. Acronis True Image 9.1 Enterprise Server
    2. 2. ATI 9.1 Enterprise Server
    3. 3. What ATI Enterprise Server is? <ul><li>Acronis True Image Enterprise Server allows </li></ul><ul><li>creating an exact server disk image , including the operating system , applications , and configurations </li></ul><ul><li>backing up mission critical databases </li></ul><ul><li>After a system crash , A TI Enterprise Server allows performing </li></ul><ul><li>a full system restore </li></ul><ul><li>a bare-metal restore </li></ul><ul><li>a restore of individual files and folders </li></ul><ul><li>Complete system restoration can be performed to </li></ul><ul><li>an existing system </li></ul><ul><li>a new system with different hardware </li></ul><ul><li>a virtual machine </li></ul>
    4. 4. What ATI Enterprise Server is? <ul><li>Acronis True Image Enterprise Server </li></ul><ul><li>Minimizes downtime </li></ul><ul><li>Eases administration </li></ul><ul><li>Automates backup </li></ul><ul><li>Ensures 24 X 7 uptime </li></ul><ul><li>Supports cutting edge technology </li></ul><ul><li>Leverages existing technology investments </li></ul><ul><li>Can be used for disk cloning and new disk deployment </li></ul>
    5. 5. Acronis Snapshot Technology <ul><li>Represents the volume according to the file systems specifications </li></ul><ul><li>Flushes the file system mounted to the volume being read by the Acronis application, so all the operations on the volume are temporarily frozen. It generally takes just a few seconds and then the operating system continues working as usual </li></ul><ul><li>Represents the partition as a volume (if there are Dynamic Disks in the system, the information about them is provided to ftdisk.sys by dmio.sys which works with the physical hard disks through disk.sys) </li></ul><ul><li>Enumerates the hard disk partitions </li></ul><ul><li>Enumerates the hard disk drives, reads and writes information </li></ul>Hard disk driver (disk.sys) Hard disk partitions driver (partmgr.sys) Volume driver (ftdisk.sys) Acronis driver (snapman.sys) File system drivers ( fastfat.sys; ntfs.sys )
    6. 6. Creating Snapshot <ul><li>Creating bitmap </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Acronis driver flushes the file system mounted to that volume, all the operations on the system volume are temporarily frozen </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Acronis driver creates a point-in-time view of the system volume and a bitmap describing the used sectors on this volume </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Once the bitmap is created, the filter driver unfreezes the I/O operations on the system volume. It generally takes just several seconds to create a point-in-time view of the volume </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>After that, the operating system continues working as usual and the software can start imaging of the system volume. </li></ul></ul></ul>File system driver Buffer Acronis driver
    7. 7. Supported Backup Types <ul><li>Disk/partition level backup </li></ul><ul><li>Creating image from the sectors that contain data. Because the product creates a backup in this way, it can backup everything on the drive/partition, including both user accessible data as well as open Windows files - system files, the master boot record (MBR), partition tables and etc. </li></ul><ul><li>File level backup </li></ul><ul><li>Creating a list of files that have to be moved to the backup media and then copies these files one by one. When you back up files and folders, only the data, along with the folder tree, are compressed and stored. </li></ul>
    8. 8. Supported Backup Modes <ul><li>Full backup </li></ul><ul><ul><li>contains all data at the moment of backup creation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>forms a base for further incremental or differential backup or is used as a standalone archive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>has the shortest restore time </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Incremental backup </li></ul><ul><ul><li>only contains data changed since the last full or incremental backup creation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>takes less time to create </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>all the previous incremental backups and the initial full backup are required for restoration </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Differential backup </li></ul><ul><ul><li>creates an independent file, containing all changes against the initial full archive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>is restored faster than an incremental backup </li></ul></ul>Diff. archive 2 Full backup Incr. archive 1 Incr. archive 2 Incr. archive 3 Diff. archive 1
