Data protection provider, Acronis, has expanded its product offerings with the acquisition of nScaled, a San Francisco-based provider of Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service. Customers currently using Acronis Backup-as-a-Service solution will get the capability to restore their systems to the cloud in case of disasters, and restore operations if replacement hardware is not available.
Acronis offers a variety of backup solutions for individual users and organizations of various sizes, as well as solutions for secure mobile file access and sharing. Acronis’ technologies also enable service providers to deliver online backup and data storage to their customers using the Acronis Hosted Backup-as-a-Service solution. The acquisition of nScaled completes the Acronis cloud backup offering with a Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution. As a result, a single source for backup and disaster recovery protection for any environment will be available to existing and new customers.
Serguei Beloussov, CEO and co-founder of Acronis, explains, “To protect their data, customers need a reliable backup technology, storage and infrastructure to restore systems in case of a disaster. Acronis has delivered an advanced backup solution for years with full system backup, and the ability to restore to any hardware. Then we added Acronis Backup-as-a-Service to provide cloud storage for backup data. With the addition of nScaled technology, we provide a capability to restore to the cloud, and customers can restore their operations without waiting for replacement hardware to restore on-premises.”
nScaled provides a complete data virtualization and protection solution for both local and remote sites, and offers centrally managed monitoring and analyzing capabilities for disaster recovery readiness testing. nScaled’s solutions are also viable as an on-premises appliance, managed as one infrastructure with cloud data centers.
Products developed by the nScaled team will leverage the functionality of the Acronis AnyData Engine technology that enables customers to capture, store, recover, control, and access any data across any environment and to any storage device. The complete cloud backup solution will be available as a service from service providers, Acronis Cloud, or an on-premises solution for private datacenters to customers of any size. Acronis partners will be able to offer a complete hosted backup and disaster recovery solutions to their customers.
