Data protection provider Acronis announced yesterday the availability of two new cloud backup solutions - Acronis Backup Cloud and Acronis Backup Service - in the Singapore market.
Acronis Backup Cloud enables service providers to sell, manage and deliver high value data protection capabilities that create new revenue streams without a large upfront investment. It is a multi-tier and multi-tenant solution, providing local and hybrid storage of backed up data, local backup on customer premise, and local recovery plus recovery from the cloud.
According to the company, service providers across the globe have adopted this solution to expand their service portfolios to include backup and recovery. The new Acronis service is easy to adopt, provides a pay-for-use model and delivers complete protection that business customers require, including support for workstations, Windows, Linux, physical and virtual servers. Underscoring the growing trend of distributors building their businesses by provisioning cloud services, existing and new partners can now deliver Acronis Backup Cloud to local customers.
"Opportunities abound for service providers, including backup, secure file access and sharing and disaster-recovery solutions," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO and co-founder of Acronis. "Acronis Backup Cloud gives them the ability to offer advanced data protection to their customers with an easily managed and monitored high-margin service that delivers security and scalability."
The second solution, Acronis Backup Service, provides local and cloud backup services with bare metal recovery to any destination or system in the event of a disaster. It solves key data protection challenges with a complete and easy-to-manage service that provides data backup from any source, and data recovery to any destination and system.
Powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine, this solution enables organisations to capture, store, recover, control and access data in virtual, physical, cloud, and mobile environments using a centralised web-based management console.
Acronis Backup Service backs up physical and virtual servers and workstations to local storage or to Acronis' secure data centers. It also recovers individual files, hard disks as well as entire systems fast and easily. On top of that, the easy-to-use web interface also reduces IT team workload so they can focus on the core business of the company.
