Nominations for The American Technology Awards, “The Termans,” were vetted by industry experts and TechAmerica Foundation leadership. These awards were named after Frederick Terman, who is widely credited as being the father of Silicon Valley.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by the leaders in the technology industry as the best backup and recovery solution in the server and storage technology category, ” said Izzy Azeri, senior vice president and general manager, Americas at Acronis. “Being named a finalist in the American Technology Awards is yet another indication of our hard work and dedication to creating a product suite that helps small, medium and large organizations to simply automate backup and disaster recovery processes across physical and virtual environments, in a single solution.”

Acronis® Backup & Recovery 10™ offers features, ease-of-use and functional richness beyond the scope of any competing product on the market. The Acronis advantage centers around patented disk imaging and bare metal restore technologies that manage all backup and disaster recovery activities in Windows and Linux environments. After a disaster strikes, Acronis® Backup & Recovery 10™ restores servers, workstations or laptops to the same or different hardware or to virtual machines, providing highly flexible disaster recovery and migration options.
