Can you tell me is there an option or ist this mandantory, that the user account used for acronis backup has the granted right "LOG ON LOCALLY" on storage node server ?
Is there any possible solution to access SAN storage without this user right ?
Greetings and thank you in advance for your advice!
I have vast Acronis experience with products (pre Cyber Protect versions)...
This issue has me a bit baffled...
Upon creation of the jobs and enabling all required processes and properly configuring email notifications post job execution, I do not receive the notifications as expected after the job completes.
Oddly enough, if I execute the test email notification option, the notification is sent.
I have checked and double checked the configuration, uninstalled and reinstalled the product with no change in the end result.
Obviously I am missing something here...
Any help in resolving this issue is greatly appreciated!
I left Acronis support a message regarding this issue but have yet to hear back from them.
If I run the "test' email notification process, I receive the notification.

It might well be required...
Thank you for being available!
We plan to migrate our Windows servers from one place to another. Can you recommend a product that supports Baremetal Restoration over the network? While recommending a product, please consider the below points as well.
- Servers are configured with RAID1 and RAID5, RAID10.
-Images will be restored into dissimilar hardware;( I'm aware that Universal Restore does the job but am unsure how fast the restoration over the network)

Two important things to note for your scenario:
1. Since your storage is configured in RAID arrays you may have to create the WinPE-based bootable mediaOpens a new window with proper drivers for your storage controller(-s) embedded. WinPE is required to rule out possible issue with Linux-based media where a storage controller driver can't be present due to its proprietary nature.
2. Most recent operating system shall remain bootable during the migration to the new hardware or into virtual environment, however, if the recovered OS doesn't boot, surely you can use Acronis Universal RestoreOpens a new window functionality (from the same WinPE-media) in order to inject proper storage controller drivers.

Being “good enough” is never enough when it comes to safeguarding your data, endpoints, and workloads. To stand up to ever-changing threats, the strategies and solutions you rely on for data protection and cybersecurity need to keep evolving too.
Given the constantly changing cyberthreat landscape, Acronis is constantly enhancing our cybersecurity technologies to improve the detection rate and overall performance. The most recent efforts clearly paid off in the September round, as Acronis Cyber Protect scored a perfect 100% in all of the tests done by this respected certification laboratory.Let’s take a look at the latest results.
It’s no exaggeration to say that digital disruption has reshaped and reinvented nearly every major industry during the last few decades. From finance to healthcare, manufacturing to transportation, the modern world is more dependent than ever on data. Naturally, safeguarding that data — and the organizations that rely on it — is absolutely vital.
Now is a perfect time to focus on the latest advances in strategies and technologies designed to improve your cybersecurity posture as individuals and organizations in the U.S. and Europe mark their respective holidays for improving cybersecurity.
Now in its 17th year, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month is an initiative led by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, intended to raise awareness about cyberthreats and the strategies we can take to protect our systems and sensitive data.
At the same time, October 2020 is the ninth anniversary of European Cybersecurity Month — the European Union’s annual campaign dedicated to promoting cybersecurity and sharing best practices around the topic of staying protected online.
Here at Acronis, every month is cybersecurity awareness month. But this October, let’s look at the current cybersecurity landscape — and take proactive steps to enhance our protection online.Why cybersecurity matters
Cyberthreats are some of the biggest concerns among IT managers and organizational professionals. Security incidents and data breaches can cause direct economic loss through interruptions in business continuity and destruction of sensitive information — as well as less-direct losses via reputational damage and regulatory sanctions. Even physical infrastructures can be disrupted or destroyed through cybercrime.
Of course, it’s not only businesses that need to be concerned with staying protected online. Individuals rely on computer systems just as much as large corporations do, and store private data on personal devices and in the cloud. The leaking of sensitive information — like social security numbers, credit card details, and bank statements — can lead to identity theft and open victims up to ransom demands.
As personally-identifiable information (PII) is increasingly stored online, information theft is both dangerous and widespread. Cybercriminals are frequently changing tactics, and their ability to attack targets outside their jurisdiction can make policing this activity tough. That’s why taking measures to protect data and devices is simply not optional.The evolution of cybersecurity
In the modern world, technology changes quickly. And the cyberthreat landscape is considerably different today than it was during the first National Cybersecurity Awareness Month back in 2004. Most small and medium businesses (SMBs) are now reliant on the web, and there are several times more internet-connected devices than there are people on this planet.
In fact, the world’s data stores are doubling every two years, posing significant cost and logistical challenges around storage and security. At the same time, cybercriminals are taking advantage of advances in processing power and AI to industrialize and personalize malware attacks. With unprecedented ability to compromise vast quantities of sensitive data, zero-day vulnerabilities pose a greater threat with every passing day.
Internet-enabled threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated, with malicious actors sidestepping or even targeting traditional defenses — directly modifying victims’ operating systems in fileless attacks, for instance, or striking at data backups. This shift has necessitated thinking in terms not simply of cybersecurity, but of cyber protection — the intersection of cybersecurity and data protection.Advancing from cybersecurity to cyber protection
By layering proactive, active, and reactive techniques, cyber protection combines best practices from the worlds of data protection and cybersecurity in a comprehensive, integrated approach:
- Proactive measures, such as automated backups, vulnerability assessments, and patch management, limit your exposure to cyberthreats.
Active measures, such as multifactor authentication
(MFA) and antimalware monitoring of endpoints and backups, allow you to
prevent threats from causing damage.
Reactive measures, such as disaster recovery and
forensic investigation tools, allow you to respond to attacks and take
steps to maintain business continuity.
Against modern cyberthreats, standalone backup and cybersecurity solutions are no longer up to the challenge and juggling multiple solutions that aren't integrated is more complex to manage, more costly to maintain, and less secure because the lack of integration creates gaps in your defenses.
Just as modern cyberthreats evolve, so must approaches to cybersecurity. The emergence of comprehensive cyber protection — which IDC highlights as the new IT discipline and “key to mitigating risk” — is the next step forward for cybersecurity.Celebrating cybersecurity at the Acronis Global Cyber Summit
The challenges ahead are real, but continuous innovation of both strategies and solutions are helping to get us all #CyberFit.
Given the challenges of 2020, however, where can one learn about those advances? Thankfully, October is also when the largest gathering of cyber protection professionals is held: Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020.
This year’s Summit, which is happening October 19–21, is being offered as a free, three-day virtual conference. Featuring keynote speeches from cybersecurity experts and thought leaders, the Summit is designed to deliver practical insights and lessons learned from leading cybersecurity and tech experts. There are more than 30 sessions across four conference tracks, with each track being tailored to service providers and resellers, enterprise IT professionals, developers and ISVs, and sales and marketing teams.

Has anyone had any luck backing up to VMware vm's to Azure and restoring as an Azure VM?
I'm able to do this with our current backup solution but the software in general is just incredibly and miserably slow. (CloudBerry)
Apr 18, 2020 at 13:41 UTC
This is possible with my backup solution - Altaro
We use Azure as offsite backup location and if needed, we restore the VM directly from Azure to Azure
