Acronis launches cloud data center in Israel, building 111 data centers globally

The new location delivers faster access, greater data resiliency, and data sovereignty to service provider clients, while empowering MSPs with comprehensive cyber protection solutions

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland, 2 March 2021 – Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, today announced the availability of a new Acronis Cloud Data Centre in Tel Aviv, Israel. One of the 111 new data centres being deployed by the company and the first step in building a larger company presence in Israel. It gives service provider partners access to Acronis’ 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.  

The global network of Acronis Cloud Data Centres already includes locations in the U.S., U.K., Switzerland, France, Germany, Japan, Australia, Canada, Singapore, New Zealand, Liechtenstein, and Spain. With the new data centre in Israel, local service providers have a location in their country where they can store business-critical data for their clients. Managed service providers (MSPs) also stand to benefit from the full range of managed cloud solutions and cyber protection solutions available via the Acronis Cyber Cloud platform.

“This expansion into Israel allows us to provide the local, cost-efficient, bandwidth efficient, and low latency cloud services our global partners demand”, said Serguei Beloussov, CEO and founder of Acronis. “It demonstrates our commitment to offering the cloud-based services and cyber protection that partners and users need in today’s digital world.”

Beloussov added, “At the same time, opening a new development office with more than 100 new employees planned – as we further strengthen our position as the leading cyber protection provider in Israel – reinforces our continuous commitment to the Israeli market.”

The Israeli expansion is part of Acronis’ Global/Local Initiative, which includes global management for all data centres, geographic redundancy, control for local partners, and a local disaster recovery site – all with competitive pricing. As a result, service providers will have no trouble meeting the ever-changing compliance, data sovereignty, and performance requirements.

“With more and more of our customers moving their businesses to the cloud and the ever-growing need for Acronis Cyber Protection Solutions, a local data center enables us to serve our customers even better with improved backup/restore times and a better total user experience,” says Yona Bakalchuk, Customer Strategy Director at Matrix Software Products.

Among the solutions now available through the new data centre is Acronis Cyber Protect, a unique integration of backup, disaster recovery, next-gen anti-malware, cybersecurity, and endpoint management tools – all managed via a single pane of glass. The solution is VB100 certified and its unique capabilities recently earned Acronis Cyber Protect the 2020 New Product Innovation Award for Data Protection from Frost & Sullivan.
