Acronis has released Acronis Cyber Infrastructure 4.0. This significant update to its software-defined infrastructure solution features 350 new capabilities and enhancements, and is designed to help Acronis partners and end users improve the performance and manageability of their infrastructure while strengthening the security and availability of their data.
Acronis Cyber Infrastructure is a scale-out, cost-efficient, multi-purpose, and storage solution for cyber protection. The company says the solution is a fast and universal building-block for any software-defined data centre or edge workload. It uses any industry-standard hardware and combines block, file, and object storage workloads with compute and software-defined network capabilities.
“Given the speed of business today, organisations require security, immediate availability, and reliable performance from their infrastructure,” said Serguei Beloussov, Acronis founder and executive officer. “In delivering on our vision of comprehensive cyber protection, integrating Acronis Cyber Infrastructure is a critical component for many of our customers and partners, which is why the enhancements we’ve made as part of this update are so vital.”
Version 4.0 offers various performance-enhancing changes including erasure coding. This improves writing performance and latency for hybrid and all flash tiers by up to 50%. There has also been an update to storage networking which has increased the performance of multi-thread workloads, with random reads improving up to 40%. Acronis also says that the new update also ensures the safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security (SAPAS) of an organisation’s data, applications, and systems.
