Protection for on-premises and cloud workloads

Get complete data and infrastructure protection with the ability to failover to and run in Acronis Cloud using one integrated solution for all your data protection needs, regardless the location or environment — on-premises, in remote systems, or in public clouds.

Multiple recovery point times

Customize your RPO to each critical application and data set in advance so you can invoke your DR plan with ease and bring your critical business workloads to life in the cloud if you need to. By selecting the optimal recovery point time, you can recover the most recent version of your critical data and access the latest, clean copy of your data.

Application-level replication

Run your mission-critical applications consistently, or like usual, even when your production environment is down. You can achieve the best RTOs and RPOs by quickly adding virtual machines into the Acronis Cloud, and by using a set of Windows or Linux VM templates to host replicas of the applications.

Isolated testing environment

Ensure process availability with non-disruptive failover testing. Keep all backed up servers and applications running continuously and in line with your DR plan by starting recovery servers in Acronis Cloud’s isolated testing environment, with no impact on your production network.

Intuitive web-based console

Allow IT generalists to set up, add and configure the cloud-based recovery server with just a few clicks. The intuitive, touch-friendly, web-based console ensures you can easily implement most disaster recovery activities, including network configuration, failover testing, and failback.

Easy network configuration

Extend your network to the Acronis Cloud easily and get transparent remote access to recovery servers using Acronis’ VPN virtual appliance and network parameter auto-discovery capabilities. During failover, a recovery server is always accessible from both the local network and the internet via an assigned IP address.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a disaster recovery solution?

Disaster recovery solutions allow companies to quickly resume business-critical workloads after cyber-attacks, natural disasters or server failures. The disaster recovery process normally involves a separate physical or cloud site to restore data. Every disaster recovery solution aims to help businesses operate as usual. Since business continuity depends on high availability, disaster recovery strategies depend on RTOs and RPOs.

What data should I back up for effective disaster recovery?

For reliable disaster recovery, you need to look beyond simply copying all your databases and files. Your entire infrastructure—servers, PCs, NAS, SAN—contains vital production data. You need to capture application settings, operating system configurations, bookmarks, and registry data for a full recovery. Don’t forget to back up your hypervisors and end-points—your CEO’s laptop may have more important data than most of your servers!

Where should I back up my data to perform disaster recovery?

To be able to failover your critical workloads, you should back up your data to Acronis Cloud Storage (or, cold storage for backups). As the disaster occurs, your workload will be failed-over to the off-site server running in the Acronis Disaster Recovery Storage (or, hot storage in the Acronis Cloud).

Can I access Acronis Disaster Recovery infrastructure globally?

You can access the Acronis Cyber Backup management console everywhere the internet connection is available. The Acronis Disaster Recovery add-on is available globally in all Acronis Data Centers

Should I test my disaster recovery plan?

The success of your disaster recovery plan depends on preparedness of people and processes as much as the backup tools used. Ideally, you should test your disaster recovery procedures every 3 months (but no less than once a year). Do not forget to amend and extend your disaster recovery plan during and after these exercises.


I'm a customer with on-premises installation and perpetual license, how can I get Acronis Disaster Recovery add-on?

To start using Acronis DR add-on, you will need to have Acronis Cyber Backup subscription license to access the management console in the Acronis cloud. This new cloud installation will allow you to protect new systems so you will need to configure settings accordingly (i.e. the system will not include your previous on-premises backup configurations.)
