Acronis 11 Virtual Edition arrives

The latest release of Acronis Backup and Recovery Virtual edition has arrived.  Great to have a tool supporting Vmware and HyperV. I’ve already had a run through the trial. The setup is pretty good at getting the appropriate bits installed in the correct order. Its great to see all your vms popping up with auto discovery once the vsphere server is registered. You can get it here
