"VMware events being held around the globe this year are of key strategic importance to our business. Virtualisation migration and backup for the SMB market is our number one focus right now. As we look to the future, the ability to recover in the cloud instantaneously, automatically and on demand will be critical. It will take time for SMBs to move entire production workloads into the cloud, but it will happen once complicated network factors are addressed. Virtualisation is the first step in this evolution," explains Laurent Dedenis, President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Acronis.
