    We are thinking about switching over to VMware's ESX server. We would have 12 servers running virualized, and we were wondering, will acronis handle this? Does anyone have experience with it?

    Hi Kirill
    I am very new to Acronis, see it at a customer place and pretty impressed by it.


    I am implementing vmware esx and also looking at different ways to backup the customer environment.

    Acronis True Image 8.0 Server for Windows create an exact server disk image.

    Is this refering to the vmdk file?

    Hello eksim,

    Please note that by default, image archives created with Acronis True Image have a “.tib” extension. If you would like to perform real-to-virtual computer migration you will need to boot the virtual computer from the ISO image of Acronis True Image bootable disk. You can create this ISO image with Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Windows (it is the new version of Acronis True Image 8.0 Server for Windows). Additional information can be found in the Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Windows User Guide.

    You can download Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Windows trial version at http://www.acronis.com/enterprise/download/ATISWin/ in order to check how the product works.

    If you have any further questions concerning Acronis software, please feel free to submit a request for technical support or post any of them on this forum.

    Thank you.
