Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection and storage and Egenera, a leading provider of wholesale cloud services to the channel, today announced a new technology partnership that will enable Egenera to deliver Acronis Backup Cloud as part of Xterity, its wholesale managed cloud service. The partnership will leverage Acronis' technological advances in data protection, giving Egenera's partners the convenience to protect all types of customer data with a single solution.

Adding Acronis Backup Cloud technology into Egenera's Backup as a Service (BaaS) further simplifies backup deployment, performance and flexibility for partners. Egenera provides the training, management tools and marketing collateral to help its service provider partners meet customer data protection needs, increase customer retention and generate new income.

"We're excited to deliver Acronis Backup Cloud to our network of over 200 partners worldwide," said Pete Manca, president and CEO of Egenera. "It's a trusted, robust solution and our partners are looking forward to offering it to their end user customers."

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. Egenera's partners and service providers are in a prime position to protect their customers' data and build their business with Egenera's support and Acronis' innovative technology.

"Built on the award-winning Acronis hybrid cloud architecture, Acronis Backup Cloud is the only solution that was purpose built for service providers from the ground up," said John Zanni, Chief Marketing Officer, Acronis.
