München, Germany – April 16, 2015 — / — Today ALSO announced the availability of Acronis Backup as a Service for its partners in all the twelve European countries where it operates. The service is available immediately in the ALSO Cloud Marketplace.

Through the Cloud platform, ALSO connects service providers with resellers and lets them assemble appropriate cloud solutions for their customers. With only one or two clicks, resellers create their own marketplace and determine the services for their customers, set their selling prices, and submit an offer. The easy-to-use and intuitive standardized interface, combined with support in the respective national language, enables rapid entry into the cloud business.

Acronis Backup as a Service (BaaS) lets ALSO resellers solve customers’ data protection needs quickly, with a proven and comprehensive cloud backup and recovery service for workstations and servers. Leveraging the power of the Acronis AnyData Engine, Acronis BaaS delivers a highly customized, complete, and reliable service that backs up data from any source and recovers to any destination and system. The use and management of the platform is very simple and transparent for resellers: With just one click they get an overview of their accounts and current usage, they only receive one monthly invoice and can easily adapt the services according to their changing business needs.

“Acronis Backup as a Service provides ALSO resellers with a great opportunity to capture market share by addressing a growing market opportunity and to answer customer need to have a sufficient protection for their critical data“, explains Mirko Minnich, Senior Vice President, Digital Services, at ALSO. “Resellers can quickly launch BaaS offering with zero entry costs and a per-use business model from ALSO Cloud Marketplace and differentiate with innovative cloud services and proven technology “Flagship BaaS” by Acronis.”
