US cybersecurity company Acronis has launched its first cloud data centre in Portugal.
The company has collocated its services in Covilhã, 280Km north of Lisbon, at local telecoms operator’s site, Altice Portugal.
Altice’s data centre, which is the largest data centre in the country, hosts Acronis through a partnership between the US company and Meo’s owner.
In a press statement, Altice Portugal explained that this is one of the 111 new data centres that Acronis, whose European operation is managed from Switzerland, will make available to its partners, “allowing them to have access to all Acronis’ cybersecurity solutions”.
Altice Portugal’s chief sales officer B2B, Nuno Nunes, told local newspaper O Jornal Económico that the Altice brand leaves with its portfolio of cloud security services in the enterprise segment strengthened.
“Assuming the path and strategy of revitalising corporate services, Altice Empresas emerges as a reference technological partner in the market, focusing its action on solving the business challenges of its customers and partners, providing global and comprehensive technological and process advantages,” he said.
Nunes added that Acronis’ choice for Altice’s data centre in Covilhã “mirrors the confidence and recognition in Altice Portugal’s infrastructures”.
For Alessandro Perotti, head of Acronis for the Iberian market, the entry in Portugal is a response to the company’s “global and local strategy”, which is to “provide partners in all countries with cost-effective, bandwidth-efficient and low-latency cloud services”.
