  • Workstation protectionChain-free, image-based backups are sent directly to the Axcient Cloud
  • Recovery options:
    • File and folder recovery
    • Virtual disk export with all major hypervisor disk formats supported

What are the prerequisites for D2C BETA Phase 1 and 2?

  • Axcient's x360Recover Direct-to-Cloud (D2C) BETA requires an Axcient-hosted cloud vault to set up Direct-to-Cloud backups.  
  • Direct-to-Cloud BETA Phases 1 and 2 do not support Direct-to-Cloud backups to a self-hosted private cloud.
  • Any x360Recover partner with an Axcient-hosted Scale-Out Cloud vault may deploy agents supporting Direct-to-Cloud backup.
  • Once your Axcient-hosted vault has been updated to version 10.4.0 or later (along with Agent 2.26 or newer), it may be enabled for Direct-to-Cloud.  
  • Customized agents are deployed from the vault pre-configured to support Direct-to-Cloud backups for a specific customer.
  • The agent software has been enhanced to include identity management and authentication features enabling it to operate securely in the multi-tenant environment of the vault.
