Celebrating Advanced Tech and the Differentiation Paradox at CloudFest 2019

There’s no doubt businesses increasingly view the cloud as an agile, efficient way to manage their IT needs: 58 percent are moving toward a hybrid IT environment and another 18 percent are looking to move completely to the cloud (per 451 Research). This means that managed service providers (MSPs) need the right tools to stay in the game – and ahead of the competition – to facilitate this process for customers and capture some of the projected $186.4 billion cloud computing market.

Next week at CloudFest 2019, Acronis will join 7,000 global cloud, hosting, and service provider industry pros to share IT solutions that enable MSPs to solve pressing, complex customer problems. Here’s a preview of what will be top-of-mind at Acronis’ CloudFest booth #F04.

Generating Mountains of Data - Thoughts from #IDCDirections

These are exciting times of change in almost every industry, vertical, use case, and inside almost every team. From accounting and HR, to sales and marketing, to the manufacturing line and warehouse inventory systems, everything is being instrumented and data is being captured and analyzed. The popular saying “If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it” is on the verge of being abused.

Several Acronis team members and I just spent the day at IDC Directions 2019. It’s a yearly event where the IDC community of analysts meets with clients, presenting high-level summaries of their research and sharing their thoughts about where technology is heading and what we and our organizations can do prepare for the future rushing towards us.

And that is a good thing.

 

Acronis Data Cloud 7.8 Enhances Cyber Protection

When they first set out to build Acronis Data Cloud our engineers asked themselves: What if MSPs could work with a single data protection platform that’s easy to use, efficient and secure, which evolves with technological advances and threats to data safety alike? Certainly no small task, last year they answered that question by delivering Acronis Data Cloud, the first single, turnkey SaaS solution that delivers multiple data protection solutions in one.

Now the challenge we embrace is to continue evolving the Acronis Data Cloud platform to meet end-user customer demands. Today we are excited to announce that version 7.8 is live with more than 80 new features and improvements. Here’s a closer look at five essential enhancements that benefit end-users and help MSPs take their cloud data protection business further.

Acronis opens new R&D center in Bulgaria

With technology, things are always changing. So as a global leader in cyber protection and hybrid cloud solutions, Acronis has to continuously invest in research and development (R&D) to ensure we’re providing customers with the best protection for their data, apps and systems using cutting-edge technologies. That innovative philosophy pays tremendous dividends in the effectiveness of our solutions.

Developing those technologies also requires us to find the best and brightest software engineers, scientists and security experts wherever they may be. That is why we have a network of R&D centers located around the world, operating in Asia, Europe and America. Such a global presence not only allows us to develop cyber protection, artificial intelligence, and blockchain-based technologies around the clock, it puts us closer to the best talent around the world.

Now that R&D network is even larger since we just opened our new European office and R&D center in Sofia, Bulgaria. The strategic location will not only help us better serve our European-based customers, but the central location enables us to more easily draw on the well-educated and dedicated technical talent pool the continent offers.

Eggnog Reflections

Eggnog Reflections

As I’m sitting here sipping on my eggnog, I’m thinking about how much changes in a year. These words were not even a common part of my vocabulary 12 months ago: ransomware, Bitcoin, ICO, digital identity, GDPR, blockchain, AI and machine learning.

Tech Trends 2018


The only constant in the world is change, and that is especially true in the field of technology. So what changes can we expect in 2018?

The current wave of innovative technologies will continue to gain momentum and further disrupt traditional industries throughout 2018. Personal data will become even more valuable and new regulations will try to protect that information. Ransomware attacks will continue to become even more sophisticated, forcing data protection vendors to dig deep and invest accordingly to create innovative anti-ransomware solutions that are easy and affordable for anybody with a computer.
