If you have not already known, Acronis is a hybrid cloud data protection service found back in 2003 by a Russian-born businessman in Singapore. The point of Acronis is to be a complete data protection service to all sorts of files and applications across the virtual, physical, cloud, and mobile environments. So basically Acronis is a data storage and backup facility that also provides maximum security to any data stored within its servers against whatever virtual attacks or physical disasters that could compromise data. Acronis have been operating in Singapore, United States, Switzerland and several other countries with, you might have noticed high demand in data protection and high reliance on technology. Of course as Malaysia moves into the future, corporations and us, consumers rely on more and more technology. So much in fact that there we are becoming more and more vulnerable to cyber attacks. With the advancements of technology in the country therefore, Acronis looks to provide the security to our data.
To do that, they have identified Exabytes, Malaysia’s web hosting service found in 2001 as their local Cloud Service Provider. They will be handling all the physical storage, and server systems and storage needed for Acronis to provide this service locally and reliably. Having Exabytes tending to Acronis’ customers as well means that any particular services can be done locally and therefore more efficiently in terms of not only cost but time as well.

M-Link System (M) Sdn Bhd has been specialising in the distributions of IT related products in Malaysia.

“It’s not if your computer will crash, it’s when—and I learned that the hard way,” said Robert Tarver, an Acronis True Image user since 2015. “I was using another vendor’s file and folder backup product when my hard drive crashed. A computer repair technician informed me that only my data files were backed up; not my OS, program files, and settings. To properly back up, he recommended Acronis. It has since saved not only my computer but my wife’s computer as well. I am very thankful to Acronis for keeping my data safe.”
