What are the key differentiators for Acronis Cloud Program?
Leveraging on Acronis Data Cloud architecture, Acronis differentiates their offering by providing hosted management, cloud storage and SaaS, which customers can readily consume. Coupled with a mature tenancy dashboard that supports white-labeling and multi-tenancy management - Service Providers can easily provision and resell these services to their clients, and minimize development time and operations overhead.
An excellent market opportunity
Cloud backup and recovery services are rapidly replacing traditional forms of disk and tape backup, particularly with SMBs. This offers a strong market opportunity for service providers to expand their portfolio, increase revenue, and reduce churn. According to Markets&Markets, the public/private cloud storage market is estimated to grow from $13.57 billion in 2014 to $56.57 billion in 2019 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 33.1 percent from 2014 to 2019.
Attractive margin opportunity
Acronis Backup Cloud enables service providers to leverage the demand in this growing market as well as expanding their service portfolio and creating new revenue streams without large upfront investments. The price you offer your customers can be three to five times (on average) greater than the price you pay Acronis.
Cloud backup is a sticky solution for partners. Once your customer engages you to store their critical data, the customer is less inclined to look for any alternative offering.
Quick time to revenue
Acronis Backup Cloud is an easy to sell and seamless to deploy solution, which doesn’t require any high-end IT knowledge and/or an expensive infrastructure. Since Acronis offers a per-use business model, you can create new revenue streams with zero-entry costs. In addition, SMBs now accept the cloud as viable and secure option, but many prefer to start their cloud experience by engaging with a trusted provider.
Opportunity for additional service revenues
SMBs prefer to focus on the specifics of their business and look upon to trusted third parties (like you), which provides them with the necessary IT services such as training, client installation, and maintenance. In addition, you can bundle Acronis Backup Cloud with your other products and offerings (e.g., email, storage, and web hosting, etc.) to maximize incremental revenues.
