Acronis Delivers Industry's First Backup & Recovery Software Optimised for Booming Netbook Market
Features disk-imaging technology, powerful scheduling capabilities, and one-click protection to netbooks
Hong Kong, October 6, 2009 — Acronis (http://www.acronis.com.hk) is releasing today the first backup and recovery software optimized for netbooks’ screen size and unique hardware configuration. Acronis True Image Home 2010 Netbook Edition features the Acronis’ patented disk-imaging technology and bare metal restore technologies.
Acronis True Image Netbook Edition is the latest addition to the award-winning Acronis True Image portfolio, following the release of Acronis True Image 2010. Designed for the booming netbook market, Acronis True Image Netbook Edition delivers the flexibility of where and how often to backup netbooks. From its intuitive graphical interface, users can back up their entire disk locally and to any attached device. One-Click Protection and powerful scheduler allow users to simply create and automate regular backups.
Acronis True Image Home Netbook Edition supports Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP Home and XP Professional operating systems and requires a minimum screen resolution of 1024x600. The new software supports netbooks that use Intel’s Atom 230, 330, N270, N280, Z500, Z510, Z520, Z530, and Z540 chips or the VIA C7-M chip.
Edward Lim, General Manager of Acronis Asia said: “Netbooks are becoming more and more popular these days. Market research firm DisplaySearch measured netbook sales growth at 40 percent from Q1 2009 to Q2 2009. Clearly, netbook users require the same level of protection as normal PCs. We are expanding our consumer offerings with solutions that meet specific needs and deliver best value to home users when needed.”
“By delivering the first-ever netbook-optimized backup and recovery software, Acronis is continuing its pledge to develop industry-leading solutions,” said Jason Donahue, CEO of Acronis. “The netbook market is growing rapidly and netbook users deserve the award-winning power of our disk-imaging technology.”
