Acronis has announced plans to expand its global network of cloud data centers with the addition of 100 micro data centers. The expansion would help ensure that the full range of ‘Acronis Cyber Protection Solutions’ will be available to partners and organizations around the world.
Acronis’ global network already includes collocated and managed services data centers in the U.S., the U.K., Switzerland, France, Germany, Japan, Australia, and Singapore.
“The rise of edge computing around the world means more data is now created and used away from company networks,” said Serguei Beloussov, founder and CEO of Acronis. “Micro data centers enable the efficient deployment of edge computing, particularly in emerging markets. As part of Acronis’ ‘Global-Local Strategy’, this expansion allows us to provide the local, cost-efficient, bandwidth efficient, and low latency cloud services our global partners demand. It demonstrates our commitment to offer the cloud-based services and cyber protection that partners and users need in today’s digital world.”
Cyber Protection Solutions
With Gartner forecasting that the worldwide market for cloud management and security services will continue growing more than 25% by 2022. Technavio is projecting that the global edge data center market will progress at a CAGR of almost 14% by 2024.
The expansion would further enable Acronis to extend the reach of its cyber protection solutions delivered through the Acronis Cyber Cloud platform. It would help empower service providers to provide backup, disaster recovery, antimalware, secure workplace collaboration, and blockchain-based data authentication service.
