We will continue to strive to be market leader by going the extra miles to understand our customers needs and through strong channel model scale and accelerate our reach to provide the most comprehensive Cloud Data Management solution,” said Steve Goh, Vice President APAC & Emerging Markets at Acronis.
Following the launch of its new cloud architecture and data protection platform and the roll-out of its world-class partner program in 2015, Acronis has achieved an 800 percent year-on-year growth globally in bookings for Acronis Backup Cloud, its leading backup solution for service providers and cloud resellers.
This included a tenfold growth in managed Cloud storage and a more than 800% increase in the number of devices protected compared to the previous year.
In APAC, Acronis Backup Cloud bookings grew by more than 200 percent year-on-year in 2015, and in the first quarter of 2016 the cloud business doubled comparing to the second half of 2015.
