Acronis Brings Hybrid-Cloud Data Services to Common Innovative Platform

Acronis Data Cloud helps service providers to reduce churn and increase their average revenue per user.

Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud IT data protection today announced the availability of Acronis Data Cloud — a unified platform for all current and future cloud-based services that Acronis is bringing to the market for service providers.

Integrating Acronis Data Cloud, service providers receive immediate access to all the available solutions, without the complexity of integrating each service separately:

  • Acronis Backup Cloud — the world’s number one backup-as-a-service solution for service providers. Acronis Backup Cloud supports more than 20 data sources, has the capacity to block ransomware with Acronis Active Protection, allows for backup from anywhere and recovery however required and is capable of certifying data with blockchain-based Acronis Notary. Popularity of this service drove the 100% YoY sales growth and 400% YoY increase in the amount of the protected data stored in the Acronis Cloud (September 2017).
  • Acronis Disaster Recovery Cloud (Partner Preview) — a turnkey, self-service solution, built upon Acronis Backup Cloud, that lets service providers instantly recover their customers’ critical IT systems, applications, and data, utilizing the Acronis’ cloud infrastructure.
  • Acronis Files Cloud — enterprise file sync and share solution that simplifies the management of the shared data while meeting the strictest security requirements of a modern business. It removes the risks associated with using public file sync and share services by allowing service providers to control data storage location. It addresses the need of modern businesses for secure file access, sync and share — something that has been validated by a 200% YoY growth in sales.

Easy way to retain customers and increase Average Revenue per User (ARPU)

Acronis Data Cloud brings shared management and easy integration into major business automation systems such as Odin Automation, Hostbill, ConnectWise Automate, Autotask, and WHMCS (full list can be found at https://www.acronis.com/en-us/cloud/service-provider/platform/integrations). Unified usage reporting, shared policy engine and common API allow service providers to offer more products without modifying their existing processes.

Availability of multiple services within the same platform allows partners to monetize their relationships with customers, making it easy to sell more, cross-sell, and bundle. Acronis Data Cloud helps service providers to increase ARPU and reduce churn. Acronis Data Cloud can also be branded with a logo and corporate colors, further establishing service provider’s position in the market.

Acronis Data Cloud is great value. Not only it’s easy to deploy, it also requires no initial investment and can be operated with zero CAPEX, based on a transparent pay-as-you-go licensing. Whatever the business model, Acronis Data Cloud can fit the bill. It supports any offer packaging, any type of deployment, including on-premise, cloud or hybrid, and almost any pricing model.

“Since deploying Acronis Backup Cloud a year ago, our deployment of the software has decreased our support costs significantly by consolidating multiple products into one. The enhanced platform provides even more functionality and control over customer data with disaster recovery and file sync & share solutions. Acronis is not only a great cloud operator but also a great business partner,” said JD Helms, President, CloudJumper.

Acronis Storage

Based on Acronis hybrid cloud architecture, Acronis Data Cloud is also closely integrated with Acronis Storage, giving service providers freedom to choose where to store the protected data. Installing Acronis Storage in their infrastructure, they bring the functionality of Acronis Cloud to their own datacenter, offering secure storage capacity closer to their customers.

Acronis Storage offers universal access over multiple protocols iSCSI, S3, Acronis Backup Gateway, NFS, and SMB/CIFS and VTL coming soon in 2018. Acronis CloudRAID technology provides seamless scalability for redundancy, Blockchain-based Acronis Notary allows data certification and validation. With new capabilities available to service providers every quarter, Acronis ensures that the constantly evolving customer needs are covered.

“Acronis is a cloud company with 100% partner focus. Whatever we do in the cloud space, we do it with partners. Acronis’ solutions help service providers to monetize their customer relationships by offering all the data protection services their customers need,” said John Zanni, President of Acronis.
