Acronis, a leading provider of hybrid cloud data protection solutions has announced the launch of Acronis Storage. This is the world’s first software-defined storage product with blockchain-based data authentication and universal file, block and object support.
“The world around us is becoming increasingly digital and the creation and value of data has expanded to include all parts of business and personal lives. This puts extreme pressure on service providers who find themselves responsible for the integrity, safety and authenticity of customers’ data stored on their servers,” said the company in a statement.
The software-defined storage market size is expected to grow from $4.72 Billion in 2016 to $22.56 Billion in 2021, expanding at a CAGR of 36.7%. According to Acronis, such market growth is driven by the advantages of software-defined storage solutions over traditional storage systems and the need for cost optimization and easy management.
“This year Acronis released the most complete set of data protection products based on our new hybrid cloud architecture. Just like the rest of our products, Acronis Storage is #1 in its class. Acronis Storage allows Service Providers to take control over their data and we are committed to helping them grow their business by providing the world’s best and fastest data protection solutions,” said Serguei Beloussov, founder and CEO of Acronis.
