Provisioning Acronis Backup Storage space

Storage space for backups from the Acronis Cyber suite is provisioned via Backup Gateway, which connects Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud or Acronis Cyber Protect to a destination storage. The destination storage can be one of the following:

  • The local Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure cluster
  • An external Network File System (NFS) share
  • A public cloud


  • Two-factor authentication (2FA) is not supported for Backup Gateway registration in Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud. To register Backup Gateway, mark a user as a service account, as described in the Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud documentation, and specify the user credentials during the registration.


Provisioning overview

  1. Create backup storage on this cluster, an NFS share, or in a public cloud.
  2. Configure Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud to use the new backup location.
