Acronis Backup (Advanced) for Virtual Host is designed and optimized specially for agentless backup of virtual machines: these editions allow you to perform backups of virtual machines without the need to install an agent on each guest system - agents only need to be installed on hosts.
The table below shows the main differences between agentless backup and using Agent for Windows/Agent for Linux to back up a virtual machine.
**You need to have an Acronis Backup (Advanced) Virtual Host license registered in your License Server.
Virtual machines with Acronis Backup & Recovery Agent for Windows/Linux installed inside will be shown in Physical Machines list in Acronis Management Server. Virtual machines backed up by Acronis Backup & Recovery Agent for ESX/ESXi or by Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Agent for Hyper-V will be shown in Virtual Machines list.
