Acronis today reported strong momentum in its global cloud data protection business as it broadens its market reach and expands its partner ecosystem across the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. Following the launch of its new cloud architecture and data protection platform and the roll-out of its world-class partner program in 2015, Acronis achieved impressive 800% year-over-year growth globally in bookings for Acronis Backup Cloud, its leading backup solution for service providers and cloud resellers.
This included 10x growth in managed Cloud storage and a more than 800% increase in the number of devices protected compared to the previous year. In APAC, Acronis Backup Cloud bookings grew by more than 200 percent year-over-year in 2015, and in the first quarter of 2016 the cloud business doubled comparing to the second half of 2015.
Acronis is poised to build on this strong momentum in the APAC region as it carries out aggressive efforts to sign-up new partners and continue the expansion of its product portfolio in the region.
Tapping into the Huge Market Demand for Data Protection in APAC
Today’s businesses in APAC face new challenges when it comes to data protection, including huge increases in data volume, man-made and natural disasters, and cyber-threats like ransomware. The market started to recognize the benefits of adopting cloud data proctection services, making data protection a modern day IT requirement that every business needs.
Data sovereignty regulations, roll-out of national broadband networks and commoditization of cloud services increase the use of cloud services and generate high demand for hybrid cloud data protection technology provided by Acronis. With many cloud storage partners across the region and the ability to run Acronis software-defined storage on local infrastructure, Acronis enables service providers to comply with data storage regulations and offer low-latency cloud connection to their customers.
Acronis has made aggressive investments in cloud data protection and focuses its research and development efforts on developing cloud services solutions for service providers. Acronis differs from other data protection vendors in that it delivers a complete cloud architecture and its solutions easily plug into existing service provider environments, while seamlessly supporting their management and business support systems – either in pure cloud or hybrid cloud environments.
