Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection and storage, today announced the launch of Acronis Motorsport portal, an online media outlet covering technology in motorsports. Four-time Formula One World Champion and Renault e.dams team co-owner Alain Prost agreed to contribute to the portal as an advisor and guest editor.
Acronis Motorsport Portal will link race fans with Formula 1 and Formula E teams, providing an insider’s view into how these teams use data, design racecars, and deploy various technologies to achieve engineering and racing excellence. The portal stands out from the rest of motorsports media by focusing on the technological aspects of the sport.
Prost will provide direction and contribute comments, sharing his expert opinion on any topic related to motorsports. “I’ve always been fascinated by the technical side of racing. I used to spend a lot of time with my engineers. I’ve always believed that to be a great pilot you had to know the art of racing and be very deep into technology.”
Auto racing generates more data than any other sport. Data fuels innovation and technological development, making it the most valuable asset in the race toward the finish line. Motorsport teams such as Renault e.dams choose Acronis to protect valuable data, because of its technology’s speed, performance, and reliability, which are all essential in the automotive industry.
“Acronis Motorsport portal is our way to provide insights into the technology that is a driving force behind motorsports. Acronis constantly strives to acquire, deliver and protect knowledge, and motorsports are a great source of knowledge about how cutting-edge technology can be pushed to its limits,” said John Zanni, Acronis President.
