World Backup Day: Join Twitter Party to learn about backup & win prizes!

Friday, March 31st, 2017

Have you done your backup recently? There’s no time like NOW!

Join the Twitter Party on #AcronisWBD at 4pm today to learn about backup and win prizes!

Established in 2011, World Backup Day serves to remind people the importance of protecting their data.

So backup now by making a copy of your data so you won’t lose it in case something happens to your computer.

So even if you’re hit by a virus, hardware failure, natural disaster, or anything else, you can restore your system from a reliable backup.

Here are three ways you can backup your data.

  1. External media. There is a wide variety of external storage media you can choose, including USB drives, external hard drives, DVDs and more.
  2. Cloud storage. Your internet connection means there are many cloud storage services available to you. Some are free, some you pay for.
  3. Network drives. If your computer is on a local area network (LAN), you can backup to a network folder or network attached storage (NAS) device.

Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection celebrated the second anniversary of its Headquarters in Singapore, marking the two most successful years in the company’s history.

“The digital world is all around us. Just like the world’s-first Smart Nation program in Singapore, Scuderia Toro Rosso fully depends on data. Our success on the track depends on data availability, making data protection a critical element in our business. We are proud to celebrate the two years since the re-opening of Acronis International Headquarters in Singapore, because much of Acronis’ cutting-edge technology is developed right here in their R&D center in Singapore,” said Scuderia Toro Rosso Team Principal Franz Tost.

In July this year Acronis became the first Singaporean IT company to sponsor a Formula 1 team – the Scuderia Toro Rosso Team.

Two years ago the members of the Scuderia Toro Rosso attended the opening ceremony as guests.

Today Scuderia Toro Rosso shared the celebrations as a long-term partner and consumer of Acronis technology.

Acronis was founded in Singapore in 2003.

Since reopening the International Headquarters in Singapore two years ago, Acronis has invested heavily in building local capability through creating jobs, importing world-class talent to the Singapore-based R&D center, and forming lasting partnerships with local universities and the nation’s development agencies.

In February this year Acronis announced the start of a joint collaboration with A*STAR’s Data Storage Institute, aimed at pushing the limits of data protection technology and cloud-based storage.
