Cyber protection company Acronis has launched its first cloud data centre in New Zealand as part of its global deployment of 111 new data centres.

With the new data centre in Auckland, Acronis says local service providers have a location in their country where they can store business-critical data for their clients and managed service providers (MSPs) also “stand to benefit from the full range of managed cloud solutions and cyber protection solutions available via the Acronis Cyber Cloud platform”.

Neil Morarji, Acronis General Manager in APAC, said, “It was something our partners have wanted for a while – to have an Acronis Cloud Data Centre in New Zealand.”

“Now they can safeguard client data locally knowing they are backed by a global partner who is on standby 24x7x365 to address any issues. With our global network of data centres, we will be able to match the exploding data footprint and deliver our best cyber protection solutions to service providers and their clients.”

As reported by iTWire earlier this month, Acronis says it is expanding regional support for its growing roster global partners, deploying local data centres, enhancing cyber infrastructure and more to ensure to full range of Cyber Protection Solutions is available to partners and organisations around the world.

The global network of Acronis Cloud Data Centres already includes locations in the US, UK, Switzerland, France, Germany, Japan, Australia, Canada, and Singapore.

“With its excellent connectivity and geographically advantageous position, New Zealand is increasingly seen as a destination for the data centres of forward-looking global internet companies,” says Barbara Kidd, General Manager, Ingram Micro Cloud NZ.

“Cyber protection is a core requirement for every organisation today, and with its establishment of the Acronis Cloud Data Centre, our resellers and their customers across the country can look forward to locally-hosted cyber protection solutions to keep information safe.”

Dominic O’Hanlon, CEO of Rhipe said: “Where data resides and ensuring information remains secure has become increasingly important to our partner community.”

“We are proud to align with companies that are focused on delivering local data security and business continuity solutions to our partners. The investment Acronis is making in the new cloud data centre will give partners peace of mind that data is being managed securely and in line with best practice cyber protection solutions.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
