The graphical user interface of the Data Center Designer
(DCD) and the state-of-the art cloud APIs are among the many particular strengths of the |Enterprise Cloud by 1&1 IONOS. Not only does the DCD let you build entire IT systems to suit your requirements by drag and drop, you also decide how each part of the system should be backed up.
It is not even necessary that all of your IT infrastructure is located in the cloud: combining on- premises solutions with components in the cloud is a common method. The Cloud Backup from Acronis still keeps all the components perfectly safe. You can also use the Acronis Cloud Backup
for IT systems that are not located in the Enterprise Cloud.
Ease-of-use is the biggest benefit: the button to access the Acronis Backup Console is conveniently found on the DCD interface. That’s where you go to define which backup methods should be used for the individual servers or VMs. It makes your life easier if you want to migrate all or part of your ‘real’ hardware system to the cloud later on: access to the Acronis Backup Console is always located in the same place, no matter how much your system changes over time.
Acronis starts by performing a full backup and then switches to the incremental method to save any changes. The backup can be restored at the push of a button if disaster strikes at a later date.
