Acronis, a leading provider of hybrid cloud data protection and storage across the globe, announced a new strategic alliance with Google Cloud, to enhance Acronis backup and disaster recovery solutions with integration of Google Cloud Platform.
The partnership will help Acronis to expand the number of cloud regions where customers and partners can back up their data, offering faster upload speeds and more options to control data in increased number of countries.
The future releases of Acronis’ backup, disaster recovery, and file sync and share solutions will have Google Cloud Platform integrated in them. The integration will enhance Acronis’ solutions and provide its customers easy access to Google Cloud Platform. They will be able to reduce their Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and achieve Service Level Agreement (SLA) targets in DR situations.
“We are seeing an increasing number of customers take advantage of our storage products for data protection because they offer better flexibility, performance and economics,” said Adam Massey, Director, Strategic Technology Partners, Google Cloud. “By partnering with Acronis, an established leader in the industry, we hope to make the customers data protection journey even easier.”
Acronis will also extend support for Google cloud workloads, enabling use of Google Cloud Platform for disaster recovery, and providing Google Cloud deployment model for Acronis Backup management server.
The partnership will also help the partners of Acronis with new opportunities and flexibility to address the data protection demands of customers across cloud, datacenter, remote and mobile devices. They will be able to offer easy and fast data protection services to global customers who already use Google Cloud Platform.
“The integration of Google Cloud with Acronis backup products is one of the top requests from our users,” said John Zanni, Acronis President. “There are many businesses who have invested in public cloud infrastructure. We’re making it easy for them to use it with Acronis.”
In January this year, Acronis had partnered with Plesk to integrate Acronis Backup Cloud into Plesk’s website management platform, enabling hosting and cloud service providers to easily back up Plesk servers.
