Acronis Releases Software-defined Archiving Solution for Cloud Storage

cloud-archiving-acronisAcronis, a fast-growing company with more than 700 employees in 18 countries, has announced the release of Acronis Storage, a software-defined storage solution for archiving large volumes of data in the cloud. The new storage solution is aiming at providers that want to run IT-as-a-service.

The company is a global provider of backup, disaster recovery, and secure file sharing and file access solutions. Based on a proven technology used for many years in Acronis’ own cloud storage centers, Acronis Storage would optimize:

Reliability – Traditional storage systems don’t consider broken storage disks or nodes as part of their protection area, resulting in unnoticed disk failures, and ultimately, data inconsistency. The Acronis Storage self-healing data management technology ensures that the data remains protected and functional.

Scalability – Linear scaling in both capacity and number of simultaneous users is critical as organizations attempt to get ahead of user demands. Acronis Storage technology addresses the increasing demands for storage, while simplifying the complexity of managing increasing loads. Acronis Storage would easily scale to meet the current storage needs of customers, while also providing a flexible, future-proofed storage solution to accommodate growth.

Efficiency – Acronis Storage would be able to utilize a mix of any industry standard storage components, and provide through software, the appropriate redundancy and configurations to deliver a high-value, high-reliability, scalable storage solution.

“We’re offering an innovative solution based on proven technology for companies that want to run IT-as-a-Service,” said Serguei Beloussov, co-founder and new Acronis CEO who’s  bringing his knowledge of cloud services gained from more than ten years as the CEO of Parallels to Acronis. “This is a major focus area for us and we will continue to add advanced features. Acronis has been a trusted name in data backup and disaster recovery for a dozen years. Acronis Storage extends our data management and data protection leadership to new heights.”

Beloussov recently also founded Anturis, a developer of IT infrastructure monitoring and troubleshooting solutions for SMB.
