Acronis names new VO of cloud operations

Acronis® said it has appointed Neil Warner as vice president of cloud operations.

In this role, Warner is responsible for the operations of all Acronis data centers worldwide, supporting the company´s rapidly growing cloud data protection business, which includes backup, disaster recovery, archiving, and file sync and share solutions. Warner will focus on Acronis data center processes, monitoring, alerting, reporting, auditing, and overall operations to develop a best-of-breed data protection service.

Acronis has a global network of 14 data centers in operation with dozens of petabytes of data under protection in the cloud. The company opened five new data centers in 2015 — London, Moscow, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo — with the total amount of data under protection in the cloud growing at more than 100 percent per year.

Warner will focus on managing and expanding the current network of Acronis data centers with the technology and service levels needed to ensure the successful roll out and management of new cloud data protection solutions — whether hosted by Acronis and sold by resellers and distributors, or hosted and sold by service providers and branded as their own cloud solutions.
