FREMONT, CA: Ingram Micro, a global supply chain service provider for cloud aggregation, is set to extend its cloud data protection solutions’ availability through Acronis’ cloud backup and disaster recovery solutions in four core Asia Pacific’s cloud marketplace. These market places include Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and Singapore. The increasing threat of losing vulnerable data due to malicious activities has made global enterprises look towards implementing multiple tools to back up the entire IT environment. By combining the Ingram Micro’s Cloud Marketplace with Acronis’ trusted data protection solutions channel partners can quickly deploy affordable, user-friendly products that adds value to customers’ competitive edge and increases profitability.

The cloud market in Asia Pacific region, majorly dominated by many vendors like IBM, HP, Oracle, and TelKomCloud, has shown a tremendous uplift in the recent years. According to a research by International Data Corporation (IDC), the cloud sector in Asia Pacific region is expected to grow nearly 67.9 percent by 2018. “As today’s data protection landscape continues to rapidly evolve, the increased user demand for backup and disaster recovery solutions provides a significant revenue opportunity for channel partners,” says Richard Duggan, Executive Director APAC, Ingram Micro Cloud.

As Acronis’ solutions are built upon advanced cloud architecture and AnyData Engine, a robust set of hybrid cloud data protection solutions, Ingram Micro channel partners can seamlessly configure and manage cloud data protection solutions from a single automated platform by leveraging Acronis solutions. This partnership would ultimately help Ingram Micro channel partners to deliver the data protection businesses required to thwart technological threat or malicious attacks.
