Key Features


Disaster Recovery: Key Features

Cloud Servers for Application-Level Replication

For applications with built-in replication technology, quickly add virtual machines in the Acronis cloud using a set of Window or Linux VM templates to host replicas of the applications.

Protection for On-Premise and Cloud Workloads

Acronis Disaster Recovery Cloud protects your customers’ systems in any location and in any environment — on your clients’ premises, in remote systems, and in private and public clouds.

Intuitive Web-Based Console

You can use the Acronis-hosted, touch-friendly, web-based console to perform most activities related to disaster recovery, including configuring the network, testing, failover, and failback.

Straightforward Network Configuration

Using Acronis’ VPN virtual appliance and network parameter auto-discovery capabilities, you can easily extend your client’s network to the Acronis cloud and provide transparent remote access to recovery servers.

Isolated Testing Environment

For non-disruptive testing of a failover, start recovery servers in the Acronis cloud testing environment and keep testing isolated from the production network.

Ready Solution

Acronis Disaster Recovery Cloud includes a broad set of features, including a multi-tenant architecture, per-customer reporting, a RESTful API, and integration with your business automation systems.

Acronis Disaster Recovery Cloud —Acronis Hosted (per GB)

Disaster Recovery Storage is the backup size in the latest recovery point per protected server and VM

Acronis Disaster Recovery Cloud — one compute point (per running hour)

Compute resources are standard pre- configured vCPU and RAM configurations with assigned per-hour compute values


Dedicated public-facing IP addresses can be optionally added to servers that require external network access

* Fractional compute points are calculated throughout the month ((minutes used / 60 minutes) x configuration points), then rounded up to the nearest point at the end of the billing month.


Billing Calculation Example


   ♦ 10 VMs with 1,500 GB of backup data are protected with Acronis Backup Cloud at Commitment 1 tier

   ♦ Three of these VMs are also protected with Acronis Disaster Recovery Cloud. The most recent snapshot backup is 450 GB

   ♦ There is one external-facing IP address provided by Acronis

   ♦ One of the VMs (8 vCPU, 16 GB RAM) had some test failovers and was active for 130 minutes in total (other two VMs were inacti ve

the whole time)

Backup Storage (*)


DR Storage (*)




DR IP Address


€ 0.18 per GB per month

for all VMs protected either with backup or DR


10 VMs with total 1,500 GB diskspace → 1,500 GB * €0,18 =€270/month


€ 0.36  GB per month

for all VMs protected with DR


3 VMs with total 450 GB disk space → 450 GB * €0.36 =€162/month


From €0.045 per hour, butonly for the time the VMs are active


(130 active minutes/ 60 minutes) x 16 points= 34.667 points, rounded up to whole point for billing = €1.56/month


€ 5.40 per IP per month for all

external facing IPs provided by Acronis


1 external facing IP address for

DR, €5.40/month

Monthly fee for the example = €438.96
