Master Cloud service provider (mCSP), Ingram Micro, has extended the availability of Cloud data protection solutions from Acronis to its Cloud Marketplace in Australia.
The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace is an ecosystem of buyers, sellers and solutions that allow channel partners to purchase, configure, provision, and manage Cloud technologies.
It removes the complexity in procurement, management, and support, as well as enables efficient management of the complete end-customer Cloud subscription lifecycle from a single, automated platform.
Ingram Micro Australia Cloud and software services general manager, Lee Welch, said it has added on to its portfolio as due to the growing volume and complexity of digital business processes, data threats from security breaches, system failures, and unpredictable man-made and natural disasters, many companies are turning to the Cloud to protect their sensitive information and critical workloads.
“Considering that back-up and disaster recovery is a core need for many companies in the evolving data protection landscape, the addition of Acronis data protection products in our Cloud portfolio offers greater revenue opportunities for our channel partners,” he said.
“The combination of the Cloud Marketplace with Acronis’ trusted data protection solutions enables channel partners to quickly deploy affordable, user-friendly products that deliver profitable value to their Cloud business.”
Welch mentioned that through the extended relationship with Acronis, Ingram Micro channel partners throughout the Asia-Pacific region can efficiently configure and manage Cloud data protection solutions from a single automated platform.
“By leveraging the flexibility and scalability of the Cloud Marketplace, channel partners are positioned to capitalise on this growing market opportunity and deliver the protection businesses need to overcome any technological threat or attack.”
Acronis chief marketing officer, John Zanni, said Acronis also supports a broad range of deployments and business models, making it an ideal fit for the Cloud Marketplace by providing channel partners a seamless way to deploy solutions across a greater customer base while exploiting new revenue opportunities.
“Through this strengthened channel alliance, our partners in the Asia-Pacific region are now better equipped to exploit the huge market opportunity for cloud data protection.
“We are excited to fully leverage Ingram Micro’s extensive channel network and Cloud Marketplace across the region, as well as the added value they bring to deliver an extremely easy-to-use, cost-effective solution for data protection,” Zanni added.
