Cyber protection group, Acronis, has announced a new Cyber Cloud Data Centre in Lagos, Nigeria. One of 111 new data centres deployed by the company, it aims to provide protection solutions, faster access, continuous data availability as well as data sovereignty for clients.
The Nigerian data centre is part of the Acronis Global/Local Initiative, which includes global management for all data centres, geographic redundancy, and control for local partners, along with a local disaster recovery site. The goal of this initiative is to ensure service providers will have no trouble meeting the data compliance, and performance requirements needed by clients.
Acronis currently has over 40 data centres in Europe, Asia, the US and Africa. The new data Centre means that Nigeria’s local service providers have their own -incountry site to 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.
Chidi Oliseowe, Team Lead, Madonna Systems Nigeria Limited says, “With the opening of their new Data Centre in Nigeria, Acronis demonstrates its level of commitment to the Africa Market.”
“A local presence is a necessity for modern cloud businesses and we are proud to deliver the Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Centre in Nigeria,” says Peter French, Regional General Manager for Middle East & Africa at Acronis. “Now, Nigerian companies, and businesses from neighbouring 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.”
