Arsenal sign deal with global data protection company
Premier League Club, Arsenal have announced Acronis as their official data backup partner at a special launch event in Singapore, where the club is currently on their pre-season tour.
Switzerland-based Acronis are a global leader in data protection and hybrid cloud storage. As part of the agreement, Acronis will offer their data protection expertise to Arsenal, which will include storage of training session recordings at the training ground in Colney. This amounts to 8TB of data a year, the equivalent of 875 matches.
The three-year partnership entitles Acronis to LED signage around the pitch at every home Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup match.
Acronis will also stage business-to-business events each year with the support of senior Arsenal executives.
Vinai Venkatesham, Arsenal’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “As we enjoy another hugely successful pre-season tour in Singapore, we’re delighted to welcome Acronis into our family of official partners. Acronis are world leaders in data backup services and their advanced technology will ensure the club’s data is safe and secure. We look forward to working with Acronis and supporting them in their business growth plans.”
John Zanni, President of Acronis, added: “At the highest level of competition, data is a critical asset. The teams that understand its importance partner with Acronis to optimise their data management. Arsenal FC has been a leader in data use, which is why we are proud to be partnering with them. It shows that Acronis’ technology is perfectly suited to high-pressure, digitally intensive environments – even those that are always on the road. We are confident this partnership will benefit Arsenal, Acronis, and all our partners and customers.”
