Innovative cloud data backup and storage provider extends deal and joins intY’s international London event

London, UK – October 23rd, 2017 – Acronis, the global leader in hybrid cloud data protection for business and consumers, has extended its agreement with international cloud technology distributor intY to cover the complete portfolio of Acronis data protection and storage solutions in the EMEA region.

Services including Acronis Backup Cloud, Acronis Files Cloud, Acronis Access Advanced and Acronis Access Connect, will now be available through intY’s self-service portal CASCADE, enabling intY’s EMEA partners to browse, order and manage services on behalf of their customers. As an international cloud service aggregator, known for its close relationships with vendors and its customer service, intY will take a proactive role in promoting Acronis technology through training, support and bundling Acronis products with third-party services. With Acronis technology and intY support, partners and customers will be sure that their data is protected and remains reliable and accessible.

According to Technavio, the global cloud backup and recovery software market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 13% from 2016-2020. With Acronis, intY will be able to help partners, and anyone wanting to become a cloud services provider, to take advantage of this potential business growth opportunity. intY will provide dedicated account managers and technical support to all partners reselling Acronis products. This includes issue resolution, quality training, and post-sales support to ensure that partners are able to integrate Acronis products and services into their existing sales and marketing infrastructure in an effective and cost-efficient way.

Unlike other vendors whose products are limited to certain computer environments and devices, Acronis technology, based on the new hybrid cloud architecture, delivers a customised and reliable service that backs up data from any source, in virtually any IT environment, and recovers to any destination and system.

intY is one of the leading cloud distributors, with a truly global reach via its international partner base, and this move enhances an already strong partnership. It means intY will be able to offer the full suite of Acronis Cloud and hybrid products, offering data protection anywhere and across any device, to its EMEA partners. With this new level of partnership, we help intY to break away from traditional business models and be more flexible, providing a faster time to market and offer a most comprehensive portfolio to their customers, that addresses any IT of modern environments.
