Canadian Cloud Backup Partnership with Acronis and Ingram Micro Provides Canadian MSPs and Resellers with Cloud Storage Hosted in Canada

Top Canadian vendor grows revenues 25 percent with Acronis Backup Cloud

Canadian Cloud Backup, a service provider specializing in white-label cloud backup solutions, announced a 25 percent revenue growth as a result of its partnership with Acronis. A global leader in hybrid cloud data protection for business and consumers, Acronis has been a backup partner for Canadian Cloud Backup through technology and cloud solutions distributor Ingram Micro Canada since 2016.

Canadian Cloud Backup provides solutions that enable customers to offer private cloud backup services to their clients without giving up their brand. With its presence in multiple data centres across the country, the company provides unlimited Canadian-based data storage capabilities in full compliance with industry best practices and national data privacy regulations, including the recently amended Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). In addition to the benefit of having a Canadian cloud service provider with data residency in Canada, the Acronis solution is one of the marquee services available in Ingram Micro’s Cloud Marketplace, the fully automated portal for channel partners to purchase, provision, and manage their cloud services.

“Due to strict data privacy laws, it was vital that our backup provider could support cloud storage in Canada while still protecting a wide-range of computer environments,” said Chris Medeiros, CEO of Canadian Cloud Backup. “With Acronis, we are able to better service our customers and reach a broader spectrum of clients, while keeping the data in Canada. Our data protection business is growing exponentially and Acronis saves us time and effort because it is easy for our technicians to manage and easy for our clients to use.”

Powered by Acronis Backup Cloud through the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, Canadian Cloud Backup delivers a highly customized, reliable service that backs up data from any source and recovers it to any destination or system, ensuring that their customers’ data is protected on any device. Customers have the ability to store data both locally and in Canadian-based data centres, ensuring that their data never crosses country borders. The solution encrypts data both in-transit and at-rest and will easily scale as their business grows. Acronis Backup Cloud’s multi-tenant architecture also ensures that customer data is completely segregated while still allowing Canadian Cloud Backup to manage their services using a single web-based console.

With Acronis Backup Cloud and Ingram Micro Canada, Canadian Cloud Backup now offers a robust white label backup solution and is expanding its client base. Brandishing the Canadian Cloud Backup logos, colors, and URLs along with the “Powered by Acronis” logo, Canadian Cloud Backup customers now enjoy peace of mind knowing their service is delivered by a trusted local service provider.

According to the Hosting and Cloud Study 2017 conducted by 451 Research and released by Microsoft, backup and recovery services hold the top position among the managed services used by organizations last year. Acronis Backup Cloud is the world’s only data protection solution specifically developed for service providers, hosters and cloud resellers, providing multi-tenant and multi-tier management capabilities and full protection of all customers' data, including computers, mobile devices, Microsoft Office 365 accounts, websites, and applications — physical and virtual, local and cloud.

“We’re proud of our relationship with Canadian Cloud Backup, as the company is proof that our award-winning data protection products provide the features required by service providers while growing the bottom line,” said Pat Hurley, VP of sales, Americas. “We are looking forward to continued mutual success.”
