Is a backup service available with PvC? Our Enterprise Backup Service, powered by Acronis, is integrated with PvC. From your customer Portal you can purchase backup space and install the backup agent on your VMs. From the Portal you can then access the Acronis administration interface to manage your backups. eApps offers a managed backup service for backups as an option.
Do I need to contact eApps to adjust the size of my Cloud? No, you can easily adjust the size of any resource from your customer Portal. For upgrades, the system will charge you for only the portion of time remaining until your renewal. For downgrades, the system will give you a credit for the remainder of your time.
Can I have eApps manage my Cloud resources and Virtual Machines? Yes, with our Managed Service option we will handle the creation, provisioning, and administration of your Cloud resources.
