New Acronis Backup Cloud Extension Enables Microsoft Cloud Service Providers to Quickly Deliver Hybrid Cloud Backup Protection to End Users

MUMBAI, INDIA – January 2, 2017 — / — Acronis®, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection, announced its new Acronis Backup Cloud Extension for Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto. The new offerings enable Microsoft Cloud Services Providers (CSPs) to easily provision and manage a highly flexible range of backup services across physical and virtual environments, while supporting the broad range of devices in use by businesses today. By plugging Acronis Backup Cloud into Azure or Azure Stack environments, Microsoft CSPs have a new and simple option to add increased value to their offerings by selling more complete backup and data protection services to customers.

Today’s small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) face new challenges when it comes to data protection, including massive increases in data volume, complex computing environments, more digital business processes and mobile workers, as well as man-made and natural disasters and cyber threats. In addition, SMBs struggle to protect data in virtual, physical, and mobile IT environments, with 48 percent of SMBs running both virtual and physical systems, and almost 60 percent of SMBs using mobile devices for work-related activities.

Acronis Protects Cloud and On-Premises Apps and Data for Microsoft Environments
With the new Acronis Backup Cloud Extension for Azure, Microsoft CSPs can sell a unique hybrid cloud backup service from Acronis that provides broad protection in Microsoft environments, including across cloud and on-premises datacenters, physical and virtual machines, and mobile devices, all while utilizing their investments in Azure. Acronis protects data across a wide section of the Microsoft ecosystem, including Microsoft Exchange, Office365, SQL Server, SharePoint, Active Directory, as well as workstations, servers, Hyper-V hosts, and mobile computing platforms.

Acronis also enables Microsoft CSPs to backup Azure virtual machines (Linux or Windows), and protect new Azure virtual machines, in addition to backing up physical or virtual machines on premises, and migrating to an Azure virtual machine.
