Acronis, a private technology company, announced the release of Acronis Files Cloud, a proven file sync and share solution that enables service providers to offer public-cloud-like services from their own infrastructure.
According to the official press release, Acronis Files Cloud is integrated with the recently released Acronis Storage, a software-defined storage (SDS) solution with built-in Acronis CloudRAID redundancy and Acronis Notary with Blockchain data watermarking.
These storage solutions are designed to withstand any workload, while reducing storage costs and providing storage options for all kinds of data. Acronis developers say that instead of using different technologies for different purposes, service providers can easily configure and use Acronis Storage for all - including storage facilities, backup and virtual machine data. Moreover, the built-in Acronis Notary uses Blockchain technology to generate a time-stamped hash, used to verify the authenticity of stored data, and stores it using the Ethereum platform.
Serguei Beloussov, founder and CEO of Acronis said:
"We have the most complete set of data protection and storage solutions, leading the industry through continuous research and innovation. Our new hybrid cloud architecture is all about giving our partners and Service Providers control over their customers' data. Data is the lifeblood of today's always-on business and Acronis has all the required tools to protect it."
Acronis has already presented data storage solutions for the automobile industry. In October, Acronis announced the release of a new software solution "black box" for self-driving cars using Blockchain technology. Whilst in the Summer, Acronis developed Blockchain-based software that can track and store the data of a racing car. This technology should be used by Italian Formula One racing team Scuderia Toro Rosso.
