WILLIAMS MARTINI RACING and Acronis Announce Strategic Technology Partnership

13 Feb 2018

WILLIAMS MARTINI RACING announced a new technology partnership today with Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection and storage. As part of the agreement, Acronis will deliver innovative data protection solutions, including backup, disaster recovery, software-defined storage, and file sync and share.

Formula One is one of the world’s most technologically advanced sports. Every Grand Prix weekend Formula One teams capture hundreds of gigabytes of telemetry data, and produce terabytes of engineering and test data at the factory. Data analysis fuels innovation and technological development. The ability to interpret the data and make informed decisions is often what sets teams apart, making data the most valuable asset in the race toward the finish line.

Acronis’ expertise in data protection will assist Williams deal with the growing volumes of data without compromising the security and flexibility mandated by Formula One. Through its partnership with Acronis, Williams will be able to access a full set of innovative data protection solutions, including:

-       Acronis Backup, the world’s fastest backup, which delivers near instant recovery;

-       Acronis Storage, a scalable and secure universal software-defined storage;

-       Acronis Access Advanced, a secure and flexible enterprise file sync and share solution.

Acronis also integrates a unique artificial intelligence-based active ransomware protection technology into Acronis Backup. As new ransomware strains increasingly target backup files, Acronis’ solution protects backups while adding another level of defence to the entire system.

Acronis’ products are already used by top automotive and manufacturing companies worldwide. Racing teams and corporations choose Acronis solutions for the performance and reliability required in high-pressure manufacturing environments.

“Technical innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Williams, and with that comes a crucial need to protect our data,” said Claire Williams, Deputy Team Principal, Williams Martini Racing. “Acronis will protect Williams’ on-premise and cloud service data with backup, disaster recovery, and secure file sync and share solutions. We are delighted to be partnering with Acronis whose values mirror our own to push technology and innovation. We look forward to them helping to deliver practical solutions throughout the coming season to support our racing efforts.”

“Acronis is at the leading edge of data protection technology and continuing to push. Speed, technology, innovation, and a never-give-up attitude are at the heart of our DNA and this is what unites us with Williams. Acronis’ data protection solutions are perfectly suited for Williams data-intensive environment. We’re looking forward to a productive season together,” said John Zanni, President of Acronis.
