use Google Translate

Last update: 16-03-2023

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud has been tested for compatibility with Microsoft Azure Stack HCI environments and confirmed to work properly in the following scenarios using an Agent-based approach (installing the Protection Agent inside a VM):

1. Installing/uninstalling the Agent for Windows/Linux inside the guest OS of a VM hosted on Azure Stack HCI.

Note: For list of supported Windows/Linux guest OS versions refer to the product documentation.

2. Backup and recovery of:

  • Entire machine
  • Disks/volumes
  • Files/folders

The testing has been performed using Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, version 23.03 (March 2023) and Azure Stack HCI, version 22H2.


  • Applies to Azure Stack HCI virtual machines which have the EFI Secure Boot feature enabled: recovery of an entire machine or disks/volumes back to original, where a reboot is required to finish the operation (for recovering system disk/volume, for example).
    • Workaround: Disable the Secure Boot feature in the VM properties before performing an entire machine recovery.
