Press release from: Acronis
PR Agency: March Communications

Woburn, MA – November 9, 2012 – Acronis, a leading provider of data availability, accessibility and protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, announced today its Chief Strategy Officer Scott Crenshaw will participate alongside IDC Research Manager, Cloud and Virtualization System Software, Gary Chen in the webinar, “Stop! Are you Getting Enough? Keep the Value of Virtualization Coming.” The webinar will take place on Wednesday, November 14th at 7:00 a.m. PST/10:00 a.m. EST and will offer solutions to unlock all the benefits of virtualization in an affordable way.

“Virtualization has picked up speed in recent years, but we’ve still seen a number of customers, that have yet to virtualize,” said Chen. “For large enterprises, it all comes down to ROI, while SMBs are more concerned with availability and ease-of-use. The key is to take advantage of the benefits of virtualization while managing the data protection risks.”
Even for organizations that are highly virtualized, changes in IT, such as BYOD and Big Data, create operational issues that impact how IT teams carry out backup and data recovery processes. What’s more, executives are struggling to show the impact virtualization has on a company’s bottom line, past the initial stage of server consolidation. In this webinar, Acronis and IDC will address these challenges, discussing how to get maximum value out of their virtualization investment while ensuring applications are accessible, available and secure, regardless of location or IT environment.

“Initially, achieving a fast ROI through virtualization is easy,” said Crenshaw. “Anyone can save money by consolidating servers and applications, but to continue to realize cost efficiencies, organizations must be willing to apply virtualization to other business processes. Virtualization offers greater flexibility and, without it, companies may find themselves unable to respond to new pressures for data access and availability.”
