Acronis Announces Official Opening of its International Headquarters in Singapore
“Singapore is a convenient location for international technology business. The country is well connected to the rest of the world; more than 50% of world’s population and economy is within 8 hours’ flight from here. Singapore serves as a business and technology hub in Asia, and this is important for us, as we believe that in 5 years more than 50% of Acronis revenue will come from Asia. It is also important that Singapore is a neutral country, and it is a good place for a truly global company,” said Serguei Beloussov, CEO and founder of Acronis.
Acronis considers boosting its R&D activities in Singapore as part of the company’s global strategy aimed at becoming the advanced technology leader in its market segment worldwide. Recently appointed global Chief Strategy and Operations Officer Mark Shmulevich will lead establishing tight collaboration between Acronis and universities and technology centres in Singapore.
Mark Shmulevich commented, “Efficient infrastructure combined with significant government support for innovation, together with presence of strong R&D centres and universities in Singapore, makes the country one of our focal points for technology collaborations and advanced research. We have already started working with a few institutions, including Data Storage Institute, and are planning to expand our partnerships in the near future.”
Acronis also recently launched a datacentre in Singapore, extending the network of datacentres providing cloud data protection beyond the locations in the US, France, Germany, Japan and Russia. The new datacentre provides customers in Asia with a multi-fold increase in data transfer speed due to the geographical proximity of storage location, and ability to store backup data locally.
