Acronis innovation puts businesses back in the control room

21 Jul 16

Acronis is putting businesses back behind the wheel of company data with their latest hybrid cloud data protection solutions.

These solutions are aimed to give businesses and IT managers more control over company workloads than ever before – including the location of backups and storage.

“Data is the lifeline of every business – without it businesses cannot survive in today’s digital world. Data must be protected,” a company statement read.

The new Acronis solutions and technologies include:

  • Acronis Backup 12
  • Acronis Backup Cloud
  • Acronis Monitor
  • Acronis Storage
  • Acronis Notary

These are all based on the company’s new hybrid cloud architecture to support data protection and recovery in any IT environment.

Serguei Beloussov, co-founder and CEO of Acronis, says the company is launching a new era of data protection.

“We’re combining the world’s fastest backup solution with the industry’s most flexible storage options and non-stop monitoring to provide complete data protection for today’s ‘always-on’ digital business,” says Beloussov.

IDC have recently revealed that data is growing at a 40-50% compounded annual growth rate. Traditional data protection methods are not well equipped to protect and recover this transient data, and IT consumers are looking for products that can more adequately do so.

Phil Goodwin, research director at IDC, believes that ensuring the right type and quality of data is becoming even more challenging.

“Today’s hybrid cloud IT environments and massive increase in cloud workloads are forcing IT Managers to rethink older methodologies to maintain greater control over their critical business data, while replacing current business processes with newer ones to ensure that crucial data assets are in fact preserved and available,” says Goodwin.

Acronis solutions feature a unified web management console and can also be deployed in the cloud, on-premises and in hybrid configurations.
