Why Acronis Backup to Cloud?
Initial Seeding & Large Scale Recovery
Initial SeedingDepending on your network capabilities, your first full upload to the Acronis Cloud may require significant time & resources. Initial Seeding eliminates lengthy uploads by offering an alternative data transfer method:
- Make a full system backup to an external hard disk drive.
- Mail the drive to Acronis, and we will safely transfer your backup to the Acronis Cloud.
- Continue your protection with smaller incremental backups made directly to the Acronis cloud.
Large Scale RecoveryIf you need to recover exceptionally large amounts of data quickly, Acronis offers a convenient Large Scale Recovery service, independent of your network access/capabilities.
- Simply order a hard drive of your backup from our datacenter
- We will mail it to you via overnight delivery.
- Restore the data directly from the hard disk, avoiding potential network bottlenecks
Time to upload (hours) = (Data (MB) ÷ 2) ÷ (Upload Speed (Mbps) ÷ 8) ÷ 3600*Divide total data by 2 to account for backup compression. Divide the entire equation by 3600 for a result in hours.
Total data = 35 x (200 x 1024) = 7168000MB
Time to upload = (7168000 ÷ 2) ÷ (40 ÷ 8) ÷ 3600 = 199.11 hours
Use our simple speed test to determine your upload speed
