Data centers infrastructure
High-availability and redundant infrastructure are designed to minimize associated risks and eliminate single points of failure. Acronis follows the approach of need plus one (N+1) for greater redundancy across all hardware layers of its infrastructure. This ensures that if there is a failure in a hardware-layer component, it does not affect Acronis customers. Electrical power systems of the data centers are designed to provide uninterrupted power supply to the entire infrastructure 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The data centers are powered by at least two independent power sources. The use of automatic uninterruptible power supplies protects against power surges in case of switching power lines and provides power support during the switchover to diesel generators.

Your data is safe on state-of-the-art Acronis software-defined storage, running Acronis’ patented implementation of Reed-Solomon data chunk distribution with outstanding redundancy and error correction. Acronis Storage exists only for one purpose – safety and security of your data.
