Acronis launches first cloud data centre in Nigeria

Acronis, a global provider of cyber protection solutions has announced the availability of a new Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Centre in Lagos, Nigeria. 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 upon which they can build new services while delivering faster access, constant data availability, and data sovereignty to their clients.

Having these capabilities is key for Nigerian service providers today, as cyberthreats loom over the business landscape and data accessibility, privacy, and compliance demands grow.

The global network of Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Centres already 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.” 

“A local presence is a necessity for modern cloud businesses, and we are proud to deliver the Acronis Cyber Cloud Data Centre in Nigeria,” said Peter French Regional General Manager Middle East and 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 by 7 by 365 to address any issues.”

Joel Friday, Senior Sales Manager, Promethean Consulting Limited, added: “We have been an Acronis partner since 2017 and we do not see our company partnering with anyone else. It is the only cyber protection company with integrated cybersecurity and data protection (with back up for OEMs). Acronis building a data centre in Nigeria is a huge milestone for the industry in Nigeria. In-country data security has been a priority for most organisations in Nigeria, and the idea of a data centre locally will definitely help partners like us add more value to our end users’ infrastructure.”
