Singapore - Acronis continues to grow in Singapore where it is going to establish a new research and development centre. The new centre is expected to commence operations in the summer of this year and will account for some 25% of Acronis’ international R & D resources.

Acronis, a globally recognised data protection and data recovery business chose Singapore for this new investment because of its convenience as a location in the region, and also as a place to live and work. Acronis CEO, Serguei Beloussov, is impressed by the investment the Singaporean government is making towards the country’s universities and the research sector. “[Singapore] is producing talent which we can hire,” he says. He added “Data used to be part of large corporations’ everyday life and then it became part of every human life. Our expansion plan is related to the fact that we want to make it easier, cheaper, and better to protect data in different places. “

By the centre’s fifth year of operation, Acronis plans for it to have a staff of 120 to 150 people. The company expects about half of that personnel will be local hires. The centre is hoping to be conducting joint research with local universities and research institutions, with potential collaborations including A*Star’s Data Storage Institute, Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), and Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC).
