How to get free Cloud storage

With each purchase Acronis Cyber Protect subscription license, you get free Cloud storage. The quota depends on the type of license you purchase and is assigned per workload meaning per device type. For example, you receive 250GB of Cloud storage per Server license(s) regardless of the quantity of obtained licenses.

"Per workload" quota means that only one device can be backed up into this cloud storage.

The following licenses include free Cloud storage:

These licenses do not include free Cloud storage:

  • Microsoft 365
  • Google Workspace

What happens if the free cloud storage for a given workload is full?

  • If there is no paid Cloud storage under your account, further backups will fail. You can free up storage space by deleting some backup slices: see deleting backups from Cloud Storage
  • If your account has paid Cloud storage, then the product will consume space in paid cloud in addition to per-workload free storage. E.g. if you are backing up a machine with Cyber Protect Advanced - Workstation quota to cloud and backup size is 75GB, then the product will use 50GB of free per-workload storage and 25GB of "main" cloud storage

How to activate free Cloud storage

Free Cloud storage is enabled automatically for any purchased workload license. The available amount is shown in your account.

For example:

In this case, the total quota equals 550GB. This storage is available to 15 machines.

The total storage available in the Cloud equals paid storage (if any) plus free storage. The total amount is visible in the cloud console under Locations.
