Compute Virtualization

  • Self-service Panel. A separate, completely customizable interface allows end customers to manage their own compute resources.
  • Tenant management. Service providers can now manage the projects and resource quotas of their end customers in the admin panel. Quotas for the following resources are supported:
    • vCPUs,
    • RAM,
    • storage for volumes and snapshots (per storage policy),
    • floating IP addresses.
  • Application-consistent snapshots. Ability to create snapshots of virtual machine volumes compatible with Linux and Windows deployments.
  • Virtual routers. Service providers can now configure flexible virtual networking environments. Includes support for virtual routers, Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) and static routing.
  • Floating IP addresses. Self-service panel users can now expose their virtual machines on public networks.
  • SSH keys. Self-service panel users can now enable secure access to their virtual machines.
  • High availability for virtual machines. Automatic workload restoration in case of node failure.
  • Initial customization of virtual machines. Initial guest OS customization with cloud-init scripts is now available when creating virtual machines.
  • More guest operating systems. Added support for Microsoft Windows Server 2019 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.
  • Advanced memory management. Improved performance thanks to dynamic balancing of virtual machines between NUMA nodes on the host.
  • Virtual machine shelving. End customers using the self-service panel can release vCPU/RAM resources in their projects. Acronis partners can free up reserved vCPUs/RAM on their hosts.


  • Grafana dashboards for Acronis Backup Gateway. The new dashboards show service state, availability and performance, as well as network bandwidth, migration/replication backlog, memory and CPU usage. These charts help troubleshoot situations like insufficient space, expired certificates, network disconnects, and lack of free RAM.


  • Acronis Backup Gateway geo-replication. You can now easily configure asynchronous replication and failover between two Acronis Cyber Infrastructure 3.0 clusters.
  • Acronis Backup Gateway re-registration. You can now reconnect Acronis Backup 12.5 deployments restored from backup to same Acronis Backup Gateways.
  • Persistent reservations for iSCSI. Full functionality is enabled for Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware ESXi and Linux initiators.


  • High availability for admin panel.  High availability is automatically enabled on the five-node Acronis Cyber Infrastructure Appliance during initial setup.


  • Improved installer. The installation program has been overhauled for a better user experience.

UI and UX:

  • Improved navigation for the compute service and settings.

Better overall stability and performance.
