GDPR is a Golden Opportunity for Resellers and Service Providers

GDPR, Europe’s imminent new privacy regulation, presents several urgent challenges to your business customers and prospects. This presents a great opportunity for you to improve their GDPR compliance posture with Acronis products and services. We’ve created a raft of GDPR educational and marketing materials to make your job easier. 

In the world of information technology, delivering cloud-based services is the next train barreling down the tracks. This ever-expanding, ever-evolving opportunity is moving at a remarkable speed (which is why there are so many aaS acronyms out there).

Even with big players like Amazon, Microsoft, Salesforce.com and Google in the mix, there’s plenty of opportunity for service providers to jump aboard.

Subscription


Subscription is a convenient method of receiving regular updates, products or services. Pioneered by the news industry hundreds of years ago, this business model stood the test of time. Throughout the years, happy customers enjoyed regular services by subscribing to news, magazines, CDs, wine, and even opera tickets. And then came the cloud. The cloud made complex IT easy and affordable, also thanks to the familiar subscription model of service delivery.

Acronis Data Cloud


Acronis cloud data services now share a new innovative platform — Acronis Data Cloud. The new platform brings single integration, unified management console, combined usage reporting, and shared policy engine to all current and future cloud-based services designed for service providers.

Current users of Acronis Backup Cloud will receive access to the additional services as Acronis updates its global datacenters. New partners, instead of signing up for each individual service separately, now only need to sign up for Acronis Data Cloud to receive access to all the available services. Currently, these include the following:

Multi-Tier and Multi-Tenant Architecture

Acronis cloud-based data protection solutions offer innovative functionality and flexible deployment methods, helping service providers to maximize their revenue by allowing users to rebrand the service and resell it as their own. This is what is commonly referred to as multi-tier and multi-tenant architecture. It allows service providers to take on multiple customers (multi-tenancy) and allow these customers to resell the service to the second buyer (multi-tiering).

OzHosting - Acronis

This year OzHosting.com is celebrating its 20th anniversary of providing cloud hosting solutions on the Australian market.  Established in 1997, it’s one of the original web hosting companies in Australia that made web hosting services easy and affordable for Australian businesses and organizations.

Doug Endersbee, OzHosting.com CEO, told Acronis that understanding the market and responding to customers’ changing needs have been critical to the company’s success over the last two decades. Mr. Endersbee also explained why OzHosting.com selected Acronis Backup Cloud as their new Backup-as-a-Service platform and what has been achieved in the first four months since the system was deployed.

The robots are coming, the robots are coming!

Seriously, there has been an awful lot of discussion in the media about the role of service automation and computerization of business processes.  The reality is that through APIs, machine learning, monitors, sensors and actuators, we are beginning a process by which many workloads formerly handled by people will be accomplished through computers. 

At Acronis we believe in trying to leverage our resellers’ existing billing, control panel and system automation software. We have integrated Acronis Backup Cloud into a number of popular industry service automation software solutions like Odin Automation, WHMCS, Hostbill, and ConnectWise, plus we have great APIs for tying into other systems. 

Acronis Backup Cloud 7.0 Is Here!

We are excited to announce the release of Acronis Backup Cloud 7.0. The latest update of this powerful hybrid cloud backup solution for service providers brings innovative new features, integration with ConnectWise Manage, and many other improvements.

Three Major Cloud Adoption Trends for 2017

Next year’s developments in the cloud space will create unprecedented opportunities for service providers and SMB customers. Service providers will be able to grow their business by packaging and reselling ISV hosted services through existing channel ecosystems, without any capital investment. This will also open new opportunities for SMBs, who will continue replacing in-house IT infrastructure with cloud-based services, taking advantage of the Opex model of service consumption.
