Acronis partners with Bell Micro

New distributor allows Acronis to increase reach into SMB resellers

1 October, 2009, London — Backup and recovery software vendor, Acronis has joined forces with value-added storage and security distributor, Bell Micro.

The distributor will be offering Acronis’ recently launched portfolio of disaster recovery products, Acronis Backup & Recovery 10, which will complement Bell Micro’s existing range of storage focused software and hardware solutions. The move will allow Acronis to target a more extensive range of resellers, enabling it to broaden its reach in the core SMB market which it targets.

“Acronis is a rapidly growing company with an excellent product set which specifically caters for the SMB and mid-market companies. It is one of the first vendors to provide a truly affordable deduplication solution, bringing a technology which has traditionally been reserved for large enterprises into the reach of smaller organisation,” Mark Johnson, European Software Business Unit Manager at Bell Micro said. “We are delighted to sign this partnership with Acronis, collaborating with Acronis will enhance our existing range of storage solutions, plus provide a compelling offering for our resellers to take to their customer base.

“Bell Micro is a well established, successful distributor with a broad reach into the channel and we are delighted to partner with them,” David Blackman, general manager for Northern Europe at Acronis, comments. “Acronis is a 100% channel focused organisation. It offers resellers support through various initiatives, such as our comprehensive partner portal, a recently introduced opportunity registration programme and a well established tiered channel programme.”

Acronis’ latest partnership with Bell Micro will complement agreements with existing distribution partners in the UK & Ireland.
