  • Accelerated cluster update: Save time with a faster maintenance mode when entering storage components and more efficient virtual machine migration.
  • Backup storage throttling optimization: Reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and minimize the performance impact on the backup service with configurable throttling thresholds and decreased reservations for throttling.
  • Object storage classes: Optimize your object storage TCO and meet SLAs by using up to four different storage classes for applications with specific performance and redundancy requirements.
  • Advanced core and object storage monitoring: Monitor, detect, and fix issues faster with the help of additional metrics and alerts in the integrated Prometheus monitoring system for core and object storage.
  • Enhanced TLS configuration options: Establish more secure connections with the Acronis Cyber Protection Agent by restricting the ciphers that are acceptable and setting higher default cryptography levels.
  • Embedded firewall management for outbound connections: Ensure compliance with security regulations like PCI-DSS. Configuring outbound firewall rules for Acronis Cyber Infrastructure clusters guarantees that all established connections follow company security policies.
