PARTNER SPOTLIGHT: CloudLinux Releases a More Robust Imunify360 Product with Help from Acronis

CloudLinux Backup


There’s strength in numbers, which is why so many techies enjoy working with collaborative, open-source systems like Linux. Bouncing a good idea between several people can usually improve it more quickly than if one person had to refine it on their own.

The same can be true for a company that’s looking to enhance its offering. Sometimes getting to the next level means developing an alliance that will allow the company to leapfrog what they otherwise would have had to spend time and resources developing independently.

Recently, CloudLinux found it was ready to take another big step to improve its offerings and determined that the right partner could add even more value. Let’s take a look.

A strong foundation

As the leader in security and stability for Linux Web servers, CloudLinux’s team is on a mission to make Linux secure, stable, and profitable. The company combines an in-depth technical knowledge of hosting, kernel development, and open source with its unique client care expertise. As a result, it boasts more than 4,000 customers and partners (including LiquidWeb and Dell), and more than 150,000 product installations.

CloudLinux’s success to date is thanks in part because each of the three products it delivers has a specific role in the larger business. For example, Imunify360 was developed to secure the lifeblood of companies, web servers. It does so using artificial intelligence-based herd protection, which means it uses artificial intelligence (AI) to assess threats and develop a “vaccine” that protects the web server from malware and hacker attacks.

Identify an opportunity

With cyber-threats on the rise and no solution able to guarantee 100 percent security, CloudLinux wanted to amplify Imunify360’s impact and take its data protection even further. To do so, CloudLinux looked beyond its own capabilities to find a backup partner with equally robust technological capabilities and that had a vested interest in the mission.

With Acronis, it found a peer that is recognized as a leader in business backup, with hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide. Acronis also shares CloudLinux’s commitment to fighting cyber-threats. Acronis Active Protection, which is built into all Acronis backup solutions, is the backup industry’s first and only anti-ransomware technology, detecting and stopping attacks in real time.

CloudLinux selected Acronis Backup Cloud to power its newly released CloudLinux Backup for Imunify360, allowing for a quick, cloud-based backup of the entire system and a near-instant recovery of lost or damaged data.

Better than ever

With CloudLinux Backup for Imunify360, customers can store data in the Acronis Cloud, a network of secure data centers around the world. And since Acronis lets them select the data center where their information is held, customers can choose the best location for their speed and compliance needs.

By choosing Acronis’ hybrid cloud architecture as the basis for its new product, CloudLinux can now deliver the fastest, most secure and reliable offsite backup to its customers.

Lessons

It’s certainly vital for businesses to be good at what they do, but sometimes reaching the next level is not easy to do on your own. Creating unique value can also be a team effort. And as CloudLinux demonstrated, finding the right partner can be the right solution.
