The new data centre gives service provider partners access to a full range of cyber protection solutions
Acronis recently announced the availability of a new Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Centre in Johannesburg, Gauteng Province, South Africa.
The new data centre, one of the 111 new data centres being deployed by the company, gives service provider partners access to a full range of cyber protection solutions upon which they can build new services while delivering faster access, constant data availability, and data sovereignty to their clients.
Having these capabilities is key for South African service providers today, as cyber threats loom over the business landscape and data accessibility, privacy, and compliance demands grow.
The opening of the South Africa data centre is part of the Acronis Global / Local Initiative, an effort that includes global management for all data centres, geographic redundancy, and control for local partners, and a local disaster recovery site – all with competitive pricing.
“A local presence is a necessity for modern cloud businesses and we are proud to deliver the Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Centre in South Africa,” said Peter French Regional General Manager Middle East and Africa at Acronis.
“Our partners and their customers can look forward to locally-hosted cyber protection solutions, which will give them peace of mind and security, from a global partner like Acronis,” commented Denzil Moorcroft, Sales Director Channel Partners, 4Sight Dynamics Africa (a distributor of Acronis). “We strongly believe that this is exactly what our partner ecosystem needs and the move will accelerate Digital Transformation among South African businesses,” noted Oliver Niemandt, General Manager, Tarsus On Demand (another distributor of Acronis).
