Introducing: Acronis Data Cloud 7.5

Acronis has now rolled out the all new Data Cloud 7.5 to the US. Replacing the previous Backup Cloud 7.0, Data Cloud 7.5 now includes several other applications, one of which is Backup Cloud 7.0.

In this blog, we’ll highlight the new applications within Data Cloud 7.5, explain how each service performs and how your customers can benefit from the new features of this service.

But, before we dive into the functionalities of the new Data Cloud, let’s talk about its compatibility with Backup Cloud. Sure enough, Data Cloud contains and supports all Acronis Backup Cloud functionalities, is backwards compatible with Acronis Backup Cloud and any external systems and custom tools that use 7.0’s APIs will work with Acronis Data Cloud 7.5. Good to know.

So, Data Cloud is constructed with four main divisions to its platform.

Multi-Service Portal

Acronis Backup Cloud

Acronis Files Cloud

Disaster Recovery

Let’s talk about each in a little more detail…

The Multi-Service Portal

All services within Data Cloud are available from within one portal to make it easy to manage. The multi-service portal allows you to manage customer tenants with several Acronis services, manage quotas and features for each customer, manage quotas and features for a group of customers using folders and manage units to delegate access to part of customer organisation.

 Website Backup

With Acronis 7.5, you now get the great new feature of website backup. You may be sat there wondering, why website backup? Well, did you know every 0.65 seconds a new website is infected with malware? And that a staggering 30,000 websites are hacked every single day? Despite these surprising figures, four out of five website owners do not maintain a complete up to date backup solution with a staggering 63% completely unaware that their website has been compromised.

So, this means that website owners need a simple, easy to use and easy to understand backup solution so that they can ensure their website data is safe, and also be equipped with the necessary solutions in the event of an attack.

Disaster Recovery

Acronis Disaster Recovery protects and restores data, servers, or entire data centres which have been affected by a natural or man-made disaster.
