Acronis Agreement With Red River Puts Acronis True Image on GSA Schedule
October 16, 2007, Singapore — Acronis (www.acronis.com.hk), a provider of affordable, scalable storage management and disaster recovery software, announced that the Acronis True Image family of disaster recovery and virtualization migration products will be available on the US Government's General Services Administration's (GSA) Government Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) list.

"Red River continues to build a technology practice area around Acronis' disk management, security and back-up solutions that will only be strengthened by the addition of the GSA GWAC vehicle."
"Our partnership with Red River is very important as we expand our outreach to the government sector," said Eric Dougherty, director of Channel Sales for Acronis. "The ability to securely backup and quickly recover data from a mishap with a cost-effective solution is critical to agencies that deal with and serve the tax-paying public."
