CloudLinux Backup

 

CloudLinux Backup option provides a customer with the most integrated with Imunify360 backup feature. It is powered by the Acronis technology, but you do not need to have an active Acronis account (if you have an existing Acronis account and would like to continue using it, skip to the next section for choosing an Acronis Backup option).

 

CloudLinux Backup offers 10 GB of free storage space, and you can purchase additional space as needed.

 

With this backup and restore service, you can restore malicious or suspicious files from the backup if a clean version exists, schedule backups, see total and used storage space, and locate the data storage server. You can learn more about the CloudLinux Backup for Imunify360 here.
