Boost for A/NZ as Acronis launches software-defined storage datacentre

Data protection provider claims businesses want their cloud-based data primarily stored within the same country as where they hold data on-premise.

Data protection provider Acronis has launched Acronis Backup Service, its new dual local and cloud backup service with bare metal recovery to any destination or system in the event of a disaster.

Designed to solve "key data protection challenges", the service provides data backup from any source and data recovery to any destination and system.

Powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine, it lets organisations store and control data in virtual, physical, cloud and mobile environments and can be both centrally and remotely managed to help improve end-user productivity.

"Acronis Backup Service is engineered to support partners and end-users who don’t have their own datacentre but need enterprise-class data protection," says John Zanni, SVP, Acronis Cloud Solutions.

"It lets them provision cloud backup and recovery services for all leading infrastructure platforms, with no upfront costs and without changing the way they sell and do business.

"Acronis Backup Service can recover individual files, hard disks and entire organisations’ systems fast and effortlessly and at the same time meet specific in-house recovery requirements. The easy-to-use web interface also reduces the IT team’s workload."

At a local level, the A/NZ division has also launched its new Australian software-defined storage datacentre to provide secure and reliable backup and complement its Acronis Backup Cloud offering.

A recent survey conducted by IDC for Acronis found that businesses in the Asia/Pacific region want their cloud-based data primarily stored within the same country as where they hold data on-premise.

"This goes for Australia and New Zealand as well," adds Lincoln Goldsmith, General Manager, Acronis A/NZ.

"According to a 2014 report from Frost & Sullivan Australia's data centre services market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.9 percent from 2013 to 2020 to reach $1,737 million by 2020."
