Alongside a two-year warranty as standard (6 months for the battery).

Enterprise-class cyber protection capabilities

Acronis has released a major update of its enterprise back-up solution Acronis Backup, introducing physical data shipping, cross-platform virtual machine conversion, protection from cryptomining malware, and localisation to seven additional languages.

The new update, which is free for existing Acronis Backup users with an active maintenance contract or subscription, also increases the number of devices that can be managed from a single management server to 8,000, allowing users to protect all data, applications and systems from an intuitive, easy-to-use web interface.

“This is by far the largest Acronis Backup update to date. We listened to our users and brought the features that they requested,” said Ronan Mc Curtin, VP Northern Europe.

The new update comes on the back of strong performance, the company achieved 20% YoY net billing growth in 2018, 160% cloud business growth, and 400 additional employees. That growth is set to accelerate throughout 2019.

Panasonic says its new portable LCD laser projector range has the smallest and lightest dimensions in its lumens’ class. The five new models weigh in at 7.2kg.

The range features 4,500-6,000 lumens brightness, enabling bright, sharp images with high colour accuracy. Both series deliver 20,000 hours of maintenance free operation, and feature a 1.6x zoom lens for short throw-distances, as well as a wide V/H lens-shift, making them ideal for use in small classrooms, meeting rooms and limited spaces.

Four of the models are compatible with DIGITAL LINK, for the simultaneous transmission of video, audio, and control signals through a single LAN cable across distances of up to 150 metres.

Riello UPS has added three models to its Sentinel Dual UPS range. The SDU 4000, SDU 8000 TM and SDU 10000 TM are designed to handle high-density non-linear loads, making them ideal for protecting missioncritical IT networks and sever rooms, as well as electro-medical devices and industrial equipment.

Rello UPS General Manager Leo Craig said: “Our SDU range is particularly popular with IT resellers who appreciate its versatility, proven performance and ease of use. These additions offer the same tried and trusted benefits, such as operating efficiency of up to 95%, user-replaceable hot-swappable batteries, and the option of installation as a freestanding tower or rack-mounted.”
