Scuderia Toro Rosso extends sponsorship agreement with Acronis

Scuderia Toro Rosso and Acronis have extended their agreement to a new long-term partnership designed to continue racing and technological product development, the companies said.

The new partnership will lead to increased safety and enhanced performance during races and off the track.

Scuderia Toro Rosso produces up to 700 GB of data every race weekend. Hundreds of sensors with multiple data points monitor the cars, providing real-time information, which is immediately analyzed and used through the race to improve performance. The data is also transferred to Toro Rosso´s base in Faenza, Italy, where a support group of engineers and data analysts use it for car improvements and new race strategies.

Acronis is a hybrid cloud data protection company protecting the data of over 500,000 businesses in 145 countries.
