Acronis launches its first cloud data centre in Nigeria

Issue 1 2022 News

Acronis has announced the availability of a new Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Centre in Lagos, Nigeria. The new data centre, one of the 111 new data centres being deployed by the company, gives service provider partners access to a full range of cyber protection solutions upon which they can build new services while delivering faster access, constant data availability and data sovereignty to their clients.

Having these capabilities is key for Nigerian service providers today, as cyber threats loom over the business landscape and data accessibility, privacy and compliance demands grow.

The opening of the Nigerian data centre is part of the Acronis Global/Local Initiative, an effort that includes global management for all data centres, geographic redundancy and control for local partners and a local disaster recovery site. The goal of this initiative is to ensure service providers will have no trouble meeting the ever-changing compliance, data sovereignty and performance requirements they and their clients face.

The global network of Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Centres already includes more than 40 data centres. From Europe to Asia and from the US to Africa, Acronis already opened cloud data centres across the globe and is planning to open many more. With the new data centre in Nigeria, local service providers will have a location within the country where they can store business-critical data for their clients. Managed service providers (MSPs) will also benefit from the full range of managed cloud solutions and cyber protection solutions available via the Acronis Cyber Cloud platform.
