Ingram Micro Inc. has announced that it is now an Authorized Global Training Partner for Acronis, a provider of hybrid cloud data protection solutions for physical, virtual, and cloud environments.

The news follows a series of 2016 Ingram Micro and Acronis agreements, including a new relationship with Aptec, an Ingram Micro company and a technology distributor in the META region (Middle East, Turkey, and Africa), and the extended availability of Acronis' cloud data protection solutions to four additional Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplaces across the Asia Pacific region. The announcement also coincides with CompTIA’s ChannelCon 2016, the non-profit trade association’s education, networking, and partnering event, which opens today in Hollywood, Fla.

“The global relationship between Ingram Micro and Acronis continues to build and the success we’re seeing within existing partners demonstrates Ingram Micro’s commitment to partner education and business expansion,” says John Zanni, CMO, Acronis. “Together with Ingram Micro Training, we are empowering channel partners worldwide with the expertise, experience, and enablement needed to properly market, sell, and support hybrid cloud data protection solutions in any environment.”

As part of the expanded relationship, Ingram Micro Training will offer the full portfolio of Acronis’s hybrid cloud data protection technical training and certification enablement classes. The Acronis courses and curriculum offered by Ingram Micro Training are designed to cater to the business needs of channel partners and their customers.

“Empowering channel partners with the proper training and talent to bring Acronis’ solutions to market faster and more profitably is a shared priority for Ingram Micro and Acronis,” says Greg Richey, director, Ingram Micro Professional and Training Services. “Having the ability to properly assess, scope, deploy, manage and support a customer’s environment is critical to the success of any managed service provider or IT services professional.  With the help of Ingram Micro Training, Acronis channel partners have the additional training, education, expertise and field support needed to add more value, speed the sales cycle and deliver exceptional customer care to customers near and far.”
