Social Media Plug-ins:

Cyber protection and cloud services firm Acronis has announced a new Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Centre in Lagos, Nigeria.

In a statement released to the media, Acronis said 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.

The company believes these solutions will enable partners to build new services “while delivering faster access, constant data availability, and data sovereignty to their clients.”

It adds that 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.

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.

Acronis’ global network of Cyber Cloud Data Centres includes more than 40 data centres.

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.

Chidi Oliseowe, Team Lead, Madonna Systems Nigeria Limited said: “Today the world depends so much on data to the point where we can say data is life, and data security cannot be over emphasised. We at Madonna Systems are so proud to be associated with Acronis, a foremost leader in cyber protection. With the opening of their new Data Centre in Nigeria, Acronis demonstrates its level of commitment to the Africa Market.”

Peter French, Regional General Manager Middle East & Africa at Acronis, said, “A local presence is a necessity for modern cloud businesses and we are proud to deliver the Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Centre in Nigeria. Now, Nigerian companies, and businesses from neighbour countries too, will be able to store their strategic data locally while being backed by a global partner who is on standby 24/7/365 to address any issues.”
