Acronis Cyber Cloud version 8.0 will deliver advanced full-spectrum cyber protection, thanks to several significant feature enhancements.

“These new features are sure to delight service provider partners worldwide, simplifying their tasks and giving them even greater peace of mind in terms of security,” says Peter French, MD of award-winning local distributor Synapsys. Highlighting in particular the enhancements to the Disaster Recovery service, French anticipates a surge in interest from prospective partners.

Responding to feedback and requests from Acronis managed service provider (MSP) partners worldwide, major improvements have been designed with ease of use, efficiency and security in mind, and include edition-based feature management and licensing for easier upsell, application-aware VM backup on Hyper-V, and the inclusion of advanced features of the Acronis Cyber Backup 12.5 on-premises solution.

A further welcome addition to the feature set is the built-in support for SAP HANA and Oracle Database.
