In a recent post you mentioned that a new Acronis appliance would be available later this year:
" The all-in-one appliance concept (ABR-70213) is planned to be introduced on Acronis Backup 12 platform by the end of this year and should come in one of the next updates - current ETA is Autumn 2017. "
Is there any update on the timeframe for this?
This feature is currently under active development and research stage - we're making internal estimations of it in order to plan it properly. There are still some open complex technical questions in this project which are affecting the original delivery time-frames, so we're in the middle of the research. At present time I can say that we're planning to include the feature into Update 3 or Update 4 for Acronis Backup 12.5 (Update 2 should be coming early this Autumn), e.g. either by the end of the year or in the beginning of the next one (likely the 2nd option will be chosen, but it's still under discussion).
