Acronis 2016 Cloud bootable media

As bootable media is required to restore Mac OS X system (not just individual files) from Acronis 2016 Cloud, I assume a separate media instance is required for each MAC backup. That is, a single backup media cannot be used with multiple machines, thus requiring careful identification of media backup to MAC system.

This is so?

If it is like the bootable media for Windows you just need one media. Not one per backup. It is really nothing more then a boot CD that then fires off the internet to get you to your account and the backups stored under your account. Once you get to that account you should be able to browse several backup and choose which one you want to restore.

You could use the same media for several Macs. You just need the right login credentials to get to the right backups.
