Powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine, Acronis Backup as a Service is a multi-tier and multi-tenant solution that provides local and hybrid storage of backed up data, local backup on customer premise, and local recovery plus recovery from cloud.
Elaborating on the service, Acronis said that it is easy to adopt, provides a pay-for-use model and provides complete protection that customers require, including support for workstations, Windows, Linux, physical and virtual servers.
According to the company, service providers like US Signal as well as key distributors have adopted Acronis Backup as a Service to expand their service portfolio to include backup and recovery.
"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 in a media statement. "Acronis Backup as a Service 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."
