With Acronis Backup & Recovery Virtual Edition for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, organisations with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environments can centrally manage data protection and recovery tasks in a single management console with unlimited P2V and V2V migrations.
Quru, a Red Hat UK Premier Partner, assists customers in lowering their virtualisation costs while maintaining the performance and availability of business critical workloads. Managing Director, Roland Whitehead commented, “Our customers appreciate the ability to add Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization to existing virtualisation environments, knowing that their systems can be efficiently migrated and their workloads are protected before they even start.
