Acronis Announces Strong Momentum with Channel Program

New training and sales support program additions drive higher partner margins

August 15, 2007, Paris, France — Acronis SAS (, a technological leader in storage management software, today announced enhancements to the Acronis Authorized Solution Provider Program.

Key among the new features is the True Rewards Opportunity Registration Program. Gold, Silver, and Authorized Volume Reseller Partners have the opportunity to earn up to 15 percent of additional margin on qualified sales that they register with Acronis. To further demonstrate its commitment to the channel, Acronis has adjusted its compensation model for its direct sales organization to favor engagement with its partners.

In addition to the increased margins and sales support, Acronis has also launched its Acronis Certified Engineer (ACE) Training Program. This program offers technology professionals the knowledge, skills, and credentials necessary to deploy, administer, and maintain Acronis products. By becoming ACE Certified, partners gain the technical expertise required to ensure successful customer implementations and provide pre- and post-sales support.

"Acronis solutions are an important component of the professional services that we deliver to our customers to help them keep their IT infrastructure running in the most efficient and cost-effective manner," said Craig Sieve, chief operating officer of Foedus, a leading provider of virtualization infrastructure technologies and services based in Portsmouth NH. "The Acronis True Image product family integrates well into the VMware and Microsoft virtual infrastructures our customers are implementing. We firmly believe that this certification program will add an extra layer of assurance and value that we can deliver to them."

"In the past year, we have seen explosive growth in our partner network," said Eric Dougherty, director of Channel Sales at Acronis. "They are no doubt responding to the unique business opportunity that we offer and the advanced recovery solutions their customers demand."
