How to free up space on smartphone

Remember “The Best Camera Is The One That's With You” from a visionary photographer Chase Jarvis? In this beautiful photographic journal covering a year in his life, Jarvis underscores the idea that an inspiring moment can be captured by any camera, even a mobile phone.

This trend is in full swing. More than a third of the world’s population now own a smartphone, which means 2.2 billion people will be capturing their inspiring moments with a mobile phone this year. In fact, market research firm InfoTrends says that 85 percent of the 1.2 trillion new photos projected for 2017 will be taken on smartphones.

This week, many of those images will be capturing the excitement of the United States Formula 1 Grand Prix in Austin, Texas. If the turnout is similar to 2016, more than 250 thousand people will bring their smartphones to the Circuit of the Americas this weekend, looking for a perfect shot of their favorite driver, team car, or attending celebrity.

A Fond Farewell to Carlos in the Land of the Rising Sun

Carlos Sainz of Scuderia Toro Rosso - Acronis

The Scuderia Toro Rosso team bid a fond farewell to outgoing driver Carlos Sainz as the sun set on the Suzuka paddock after an event filled Japanese Grand Prix weekend.

The land of the rising sun turned out to be the land of the grey skies and rain showers on a Friday that saw more action in the pitlane than out on the track as team members entertained themselves by floating paper boats along the tarmac that now resembled rivers.

Farewell Malaysia, Welcome Pierre

2017 Malaysia Formula 1 Grand Prix

Ever since its inaugural grand prix in 1999, the Malaysian Grand Prix has been a favorite for teams and drivers alike. Located close to Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the challenging Sepang circuit layout with two long straights and numerous sweeping corners, designed by Hermann Tilke, has provided many exciting races over the years. Alas, the 2017 race would be the last at the venue for the foreseeable future but also a memorable one both for Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz and a brand new addition to the team in exciting young French starlet Pierre Gasly.

Scuderia Toro Rosso and Honda

Changing power units in racing cars is not uncommon. For Scuderia Toro Rosso it’ll be the third change in as many years. Last year they used Ferrari. This year it’s Renault. Next year, the power unit will come from Japan. The Faenza-based team recently signed a new agreement with Honda, and in the words of Team Principal Franz Tost, Toro Rosso expects “to get out a lot on the design side as well as from the cooperation.”

While the media have a field day discussing the news, Acronis spoke to Raffaele Boschetti, who heads the IT at Scuderia Toro Rosso, about what’s involved in getting ready for a new engine supplier. With everything relying on data, it was only appropriate to start with IT.

Acronis and Renault e.dams Formula E Team

Acronis and Renault Sport Racing announced an innovative technology partnership in Paris this week. Acronis will provide cloud storage, backup, and active ransomware protection for the Renault Sport Racing IT infrastructure.

Every team needs data to improve performance and technology. Acronis makes sure every bit of our data is protected and accessible to us when we need it.”

CCleaner Malware

Users of CCleaner for Windows, a maintenance and file clean-up tool developed by Avast Piriform, are being told to update their software immediately, since it’s been discovered that hackers had installed a backdoor in the official application that would allow additional malware to be added to the infected system.

The ability of cybercriminals to access user systems by adding malware into official software builds of trusted vendors is a major red flag. Protecting your data just got even more critical, so here’s what you need to know.

Celebrating 3 years of Acronis International HQ in Singapore
