Acronis has announced a new strategic partnership with Google Cloud, revealing plans to enhance Acronis backup solutions by integrating with the Google Cloud Platform.
The new agreement will significantly increase the number of cloud regions where Acronis’ partners and customers can store their data. It will also bring fast upload speeds and data sovereignty options to users in a greater number of countries.
Google Cloud Platform will be integrated into future releases of Acronis’ backup, disaster recovery, and file sync and share solutions. Easy access to Google Cloud Platform will help users reduce their recovery time objectives (RTO) and achieve service level agreement targets, especially in disaster recovery situations.
“The integration of Google Cloud with Acronis backup products is one of the top requests from our users,” said John Zanni, Acronis president. “There are many businesses who have invested in public cloud infrastructure. We’re making it easy for them to use it with Acronis.”
As part of this integration, Acronis plans to extend the support for Google Cloud workloads, offer a Google Cloud deployment model for the Acronis Backup management server, and enable the use of Google Cloud Platform for disaster recovery.
