HT204053 Can I back up two computers to iCloud with the same Apple ID and not lose any data?

Hi.  I have a macbook air which is all set to back up on iCloud.
My iMac has much more data and I wish to set it up as well.
Will iCloud know these are two different computers or will it overwrite one with the other's data?
I guess the main question is, do I need two Apple IDs and should I treat them as two separate accounts.
Many thanks.

Hi...
If you delete the backups it will not delete any content from their device, however the data will be removed from iCloud.
It will also prevent the devices from backing up to iCloud in future, unless this is re-enabled.
