Sydney, 10 April 2013–Acronis today ushered in a new era of data protection and business continuity for small office and home office (SOHO) users through the release of Acronis® Small Office: Server Cloud Backup.
Acronis’ new SOHO cloud solution protects against downtime in ways that neither traditional backup nor cloud backup services can. It provides small business owners with the same protection that was, until now, only available to enterprises, in an exceptionally easy-to-use and affordable solution. Acronis has harnessed the power of innovative “hybrid cloud” technology in a manner that makes it extremely simple to use. By following Acronis’ three-click 3-2-1 backup strategy, users get the benefits of both local and cloud backup.
“Many small businesses and home office users we speak to have limited data protection and disaster recovery capabilities,” said Robert Amatruda, research director, data protection and recovery, IDC. “Acronis Small Office: Server Cloud Backup offers customers a full-featured cloud backup solution providing secure off-site data protection.”
Acronis Small Office: Server Cloud Backup is built on proven cloud backup technology from Acronis, designed with the specific needs and requirements of SOHO businesses in mind. With just three clicks, users can easily, quickly and securely back up files and critical data locally and to Acronis cloud storage where it is constantly available and accessible. Users can also leverage system-image backup technology for faster disaster recovery, and perform server restore within minutes to any hardware using Acronis® Universal Restore™.
Andy Purvis, General Manager ANZ for Acronis, said: “Small business owners rely on their computers and mobile devices, and can’t afford downtime or data loss. We provide SOHO users with a secure hybrid cloud solution, a reliable alternative to new-to-market or public cloud solutions, helping to ensure business continuity and secure data protection. Our solution is enterprise-grade, yet extremely easy to use, and is based on proven technology that millions of customers trust.”
Acronis Small Office: Server Cloud Backup is available in a variety of subscription packages, giving SOHO users the flexibility to purchase the storage space they need, within their budget. Packages start at $499 for a one-year subscription, which includes 350 GB of Acronis cloud storage, and scale up to a three-year subscription plan with one TB of cloud storage.
