Ingram Micro has extended the availability of cloud data protection solutions from Acronis to four additional Cloud Marketplaces across the Asia Pacific region, including New Zealand.
Building on its existing global relationship in North America and Europe, Acronis is now offered through the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace in 14 countries, bolstering the distributor’s disaster recovery play in New Zealand.
“As today's data protection landscape continues to rapidly evolve, the increased user demand for backup and disaster recovery solutions provides a significant revenue opportunity for channel partners,” says Richard Duggan, Executive Director APAC, Ingram Micro Cloud.
“The combination of the Cloud Marketplace with Acronis' trusted data protection solutions enables channel partners to quickly deploy affordable, user-friendly products that deliver greater value to customers and boost their own competitive edge and profitability.”
Built on advanced cloud architecture, Acronis solutions are powered by AnyData Engine, a set of hybrid cloud data protection solutions that protect workloads of any type, across all environments and locations.
With Acronis exclusively unveiling its redesigned plans for the Kiwi channel market to Reseller News, the local expansion now allows Ingram Micro channel partners to configure and manage cloud data protection solutions from a single automated platform.
“Through this strengthened channel alliance, our partners in the Asia Pacific region are now better equipped to exploit the huge market opportunity for cloud data protection,” adds John Zanni, CMO, Acronis.
“We are excited to fully leverage Ingram Micro's extensive channel network and Cloud Marketplace across the region, as well as the added value they bring to deliver an extremely easy-to-use, cost-effective solution for data protection.”
