Frequently Asked Questions
How does Acronis Cyber Appliance provide high-availability?

While the Acronis Cyber Appliance ships as a single rack-mountable appliance, it houses five independent servers. Each server has its own hot-swapable storage, memory, and CPU. The chassis also has two independent power supplies.

How difficult is it to install Acronis Cyber Appliance?

It's fast and easy, but probably a two-person job - each appliance weighs 35kg (77.2 pounds). Acronis Cyber Appliance is shipped to you with all components already installed. You'll need to install the rail kit in your data center rack and put the appliance on the rails. After that, simply connect the network and power cables and your hardware installation is complete.

What are the Acronis Cyber Appliance's dimensions?

The Acronis Cyber Appliance is 13cm tall, 43.5cm wide, and 60cm deep (5.12in tall, 17.12un wide, and 23.62in deep). A single Acronis Cyber Appliance takes up 3 Rack Units (3U) space.

What operating system does the Acronis Cyber Appliance run?

Acronis Cyber Infrastructure runs our own software-defined infrastructure solution, Acronis Cyber Infrastructure.

What if I need more resources in the future?

Expansion is simple. Install another Acronis Cyber Appliance in your data center, and use the original appliance's GUI to easily add the new appliance to your cluster. This will increase your storage capacity, performance, and high-availability.
