INDIANAPOLIS, March 31, 2020 - Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization and hyperconverged solutions, today announced it is offering Acronis Cloud Storage, adding a further dimension to the existing OEM partnership with the global leader in cyber protection. The easy to use cloud subscription from Acronis gives Scale Computing HC3 customers a powerful, highly available, hybrid redundant backup storage solution delivering disaster recovery protection and cyberthreat mitigation.
By offering Acronis Cloud Storage, Scale Computing provides customers with a safe, secure and easy place to back up data. By integrating the Scale Computing HC3 platform with Acronis Cyber Backup, users can benefit from a wide range of advanced backup and protection features, including granular object-level recovery, variable-length deduplication for backups, and active ransomware protection.
The new end-to-end storage and cloud backup solution can protect entire virtual machines (VMs), providing bare-metal restore capabilities, and can restore to dissimilar hardware or platforms if required. Available to purchase in one- or three-year terms, Scale Computing will be offering Acronis Cloud Storage in increments ranging from 250GB to 5TB.
Acronis backups are stored on reliable Acronis Cyber Infrastructure (a secure software-defined compute and storage solution) with outstanding redundancy and error correction. The data center infrastructure is designed around high availability and redundancy to minimize associated risks and eliminate single points of failure. In addition, physical security is ensured through several protective measures such as security barriers, video surveillance, and highly monitored access. Data can also be encrypted at source with government-approved AES-256 strong encryption before sending it to a secure data center.
“We are seeing considerable demand from today’s businesses for data protection, backup and disaster recovery. Integrating the Scale Computing HC3 platform with Acronis will help customers meet these priorities in a simple and cost-effective way,” explained Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder, Scale Computing. “Scale Computing customers can now easily and securely store their Acronis backups locally or in the cloud, with a scalable solution that is designed for agile businesses.”
“The ever-rising threat of ransomware and other cyberthreats along with changing IT requirements have organizations facing ongoing challenges associated with protecting their infrastructure. Due to this, more organizations are demanding cyber protection solutions that are easy, efficient and secure for backing up their data,” said Patrick Hurley, Vice President and General Manager, Americas at Acronis. “With Acronis Cloud Storage on Scale Computing HC3, organizations gain a high availability data protection cloud solution that also ensures safe, secure and scalable offsite backup for any data or any system -- anytime, anywhere.”
