Acronis Backup Cloud

Acronis Backup Cloud

What is Acronis Backup Cloud ?

 

Expand your service portfolio with hybrid local and cloud backup and recovery and create new revenue streams with zero entry costs.

Acronis Backup Cloud consists of three components;
• Management Portal
• Storage
• Agent on the end point device.

With the Acronis Backup Cloud Hybrid model, Acronis hosts and manages the Management Portal but not the Storage.

With the Acronis Backup Cloud Service Provider Hosted model, the Service Provider hosts and manages both the Management Portal and the Storage.

Acronis provides the Acronis Backup Cloud to Service Providers on a “pay for usage” or “pay for device” basis.

A subscription license to the Acronis Backup Cloud is granted, not a perpetual license.
