“As a Canadian cloud distributor and provider of backups and recovery plans since 2005, we are aware that proximity to the backup site is one of the important criteria for an optimal DR plan,” said Serge Blondin, IT director and Acronis product manager, ITCloud.ca. “With the addition of a second data center in Eastern Canada, Acronis allows our partners across the country to now benefit from proximity to the backup site in addition to a state-of-the-art, infrastructure entirely managed by Acronis. With our network of more than 1,200 partners in Canada, ITCloud.ca is very proud to have contributed to the success of this major project.“
The Cyber Cloud data centers are tailored to meet corporate and regulatory needs, enabling partners to exceed compliance, data sovereignty, and performance requirements. They adhere to the highest standards of physical security to restrict unauthorized physical access and protect the safety of customer data. The Toronto Cyber Cloud data center’s standards and reports include ISO 22301:2019, PCI DSS, SOC 2 Type 2, SOC 1 Type 2, and ISO/IEC 27001:2013, underscoring vendor’s commitment to providing secure and reliable cyber protection solutions.
Purpose-built to provide organizations with the utmost levels of data availability, security, and safety for their critical data, applications, and systems, each facility features the best operational and security controls. The Cyber Cloud data centers also follow the approach of need plus one (N+1) for greater redundancy across all hardware layers of its infrastructure, minimizing risks and eliminating single points of failure. This ensures that customers can always rely on Acronis for resilient and robust cyber protection solutions.
