As part of its continued expansion in to the cloud market, Nuvias UC, the Unified Communications Practice of the EMEA high-value distributor, has announced the partnership with Acronis, a global provder of hybrid cloud solutions, to bring its cyber backup solutions to the channel in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Under the accord, Nuvias will be offering Acronis’ cyber backup cloud solutions through its EMEA partner network, available to purchase through the sales account management team or directly through HUB, the multi-tiered online web store which has recently been developed further to allow for subscription billing and automated Acronis licence delivery.
As the second XaaS vendor to join Nuvias UC’s expanding portfolio of next generation technologies, Acronis is setting the standard for cyber protection through its innovative backup, anti-ransomware, disaster recovery, storage, enterprise file sync and share solutions with artificial intelligence (AI)-based active protection technology and blockchain-based data authentication.
Acronis’ backup solution (with on-premise, cloud and hybrid options), reliably protects any data source on over twenty platforms – virtual, physical, cloud and mobile, regardless of the size or location of the data.
Steve Harris, CEO, Nuvias Unified Communications, said: “As a business, our aim is to be EMEA’s leading technology enabler, at the forefront of innovation, which is why we have combined the latest advancements in IT and telephony to reflect changes in the industry. The expansion of our cloud portfolio and the on-boarding of next generation technologies, like Acronis, allow us to be able to lead our customers in embracing digital transformation and diversifying their offering in today’s competitive market.”
Harris explained that one of the reasons Nuvias partnered with Acronis, is the vendor’s industry leading position.
“According to Enterprise Strategy Group, Acronis’ solution is outperforming the competition by a huge 300%, on account of its ease-of-use, agility, cost-efficiency and scalability,” he said. These are the type of vendors we want to be associated with, and Acronis are just one of the first new industry-leading vendors we will be announcing over the coming months, to carve our disruptive mark in the cloud market.”
Ronan McCurtin, vice president, northern Europe, Acronis, said: “We are proud to work alongside Nuvias UC and to be a part of their journey, as they expand further into the anything-as-a-service space. Our new partnership is a great opportunity to jointly deliver our complete cyber protection solutions to their partners, and we’re confident that through their demonstrated agile and knowledgeable team, they’ll drive significant growth for Acronis.”
