MUMBAI – Acronis today announced the availability of a new Acronis Cloud Data Center in Mumbai, launched jointly with local partners like Crayon Software Experts India. As one of the 111 new data centers being deployed by the company, it gives service providers access to a full range of cyber protection solutions upon which they can build new services while delivering faster access, constant data availability, and data sovereignty to their clients.
With news about cyber-attacks appearing weekly, even despite the prevailing pandemic concerns – including recently, with millions of AirIndia clients’ records exposed by threat actors – cyber protection has simply never been in higher demand, with data compliancy among the top priorities for companies in India.
Rustom Hiramaneck, Acronis General Manager in South Asia said, “Having a local Acronis Cloud Data Center was extremely important to our partners in India – and we are proud to collaborate with companies that remain focused on delivering best data security and business continuity solutions to their clients. With one less thing to worry about, they now know their clients’ data is locally backed by a global partner who is on standby 24×7 – ready to resolve any issues.”
All Acronis Cloud Data Centers are designed to meet and exceed corporate and regulatory requirements. The initiative includes global management for all data centers, geographic redundancy, control for local partners, and a local disaster recovery site – all with competitive pricing. As a result, service providers have no trouble meeting the ever-changing compliance, data sovereignty, and performance requirements.
The global network of Acronis Cloud Data Centers already includes locations in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Switzerland, France, Germany, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Bhutan, South Korea and Singapore. With the new data center in India, local service providers now have a location within the country where they can store business-critical data for their clients. Managed service providers (MSPs) will also benefit from the full range of managed cloud solutions and cyber protection solutions available via the Acronis Cyber Cloud platform.
“The reality in knowing where your corporate data resides and ensuring it remains secure has become a necessity in a global partner community – and having your data stored locally provides complete data control both to you and your clients. The investment by Acronis into a new cloud data center guarantees just that,” says Vikas Bhonsle, CEO at Crayon Software Experts India.
“It’s a much needed and welcome move as Acronis is opening its DC in India. It will be a big boost to business in backup and DR space with a peace of mind to our enterprise customers, as the data will reside in India. Companies can now enjoy the benefits of having their workloads in the cloud and yet it will not be stored in any obscure location. A locally based DC is like an extension of ones’ own IT department and this alone gives a great sense of safety to the business.” says, Laxmikant Ambulkar – Regional Channel Head (West) & Product Head for Acronis at Crayon Software Experts India.
Among the solutions now available through the new data center is Acronis Cyber Protect, a unique integration of backup, disaster recovery, next-gen antimalware, cybersecurity, and endpoint management tools – all managed via a single pane of glass. The solution is VB100 certified and its unique capabilities earned Acronis Cyber Protect the 2020 New Product Innovation Award for Data Protection from Frost & Sullivan.
