London – November 9, 2015 – Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) today announced it has expanded its distribution agreement with Acronis, a global leader in new generation data protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments.

Initially offered in the United States, the expanded relationship has extended the reach and availability of Acronis’ cloud data protection solutions offered via Ingram Micro to nine countries Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom with more planned. Channel partners worldwide will soon be able to easily configure and manage Acronis’ leading cloud data protection solutions from a single automated platform. Additionally, the expanded agreement brings priority to the relationship in the U.S. where Ingram Micro now serves as the premier distributor of Acronis’ growing portfolio of data protection and disaster recovery solutions for virtual, physical, mobile and cloud environments.

With the rising threat of data loss from security breaches, system failures, and man-made and natural disasters, many organisations are turning to cloud and hybrid cloud solutions to protect their information. Recognised as the industry’s most complete data protection platform, Acronis’ tightly integrated set of solutions includes backup, disaster recovery, and secure file sync and share, offering channel partners the ability to provide customisable and affordable data protection solutions to their end-customers.

Tailored to support any operating system, Acronis’ highly flexible data protection solutions are well suited for the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace and allow channel partners to easily deploy and scale cloud solutions to a larger global customer base while quickly tapping into new revenue generating services for data protection.

“We are extremely pleased that Ingram Micro has selected Acronis as a preferred provider of data protection solutions for its Cloud Marketplace and Advanced Solutions organisation. What makes our expanded relationship unique is that Ingram Micro can now distribute Acronis software, broker Acronis services to cloud resellers, and sell Acronis cloud solutions to service providers – greatly extending our partner reach and value,” said Serguei Beloussov, Co-Founder and CEO at Acronis. “We believe that leaders like Ingram Micro play a critical role in the adoption and growth of cloud services, adding value by acting as the integrator, product manager, and cost manager for partners. Ingram Micro partners worldwide can now have a best-in-class choice for complete data protection that is integrated with the Ingram Micro platform and can be easily customised and tailored to the end-user’s needs.”
