Backup Extension for Windows Azure Pack is a component that integrates Acronis Backup Cloud with Windows Azure Pack. It enables service providers to offer multitenant backup service through Windows Azure Pack. Using the service tenants can back up both cloud virtual machines and on-premise infrastructure.
For the service provider
- Backup Service
An administrator can configure Backup Service in the Admin Portal, include the service into a plan and offer the plan to tenants. The administrator can create add-ons with additional resources, such as “Backup storage,” and link them to the plan.
- Account and subscription management
The administrator can enable/disable a tenant account with a backup service subscription from the Admin Portal. The service will be enabled/disabled correspondingly for the account in Acronis Backup Cloud. When a backup service subscription is deleted in WAP, the account and all backups associated with it are deleted in Acronis Backup Cloud.
- Usage reporting
Usage of the backup storage and the number of protected machines are reported by Acronis Backup Cloud to WAP.
- Sign-up for backup service
Tenants can add a subscription for the backup service and get access to the Backup management console where they can manage backups.
The tenant can add or delete add-ons with backup service resources. Quotas for the account will be updated accordingly in Acronis Backup Cloud.
The tenant can download a backup client, install it inside a virtual machine, log in to the backup console, and assign a backup plan to it.
- File recovery
The tenant can log in to the backup console and recover selected files and folders.
- Virtual machine recovery
The tenant can log in to the backup console and recover a selected machine.
