The partnership is a vitally important one for the VENTURI Formula E Team, which generates up to 20GB of data at each racing weekend alone. Of course, all this valuable data needs to be fully protected from modern cyber threats while remaining easily accessible to trackside and support engineers, no matter where they are in the world, helping them to improve speed, efficiency and security of their operations.
Acronis will also utilize the latest artificial intelligence (AI) advances to help transform the predictive analytics capabilities of the race team, increasing its capacity to deal with the many unexpected events of the unique, high-jeopardy Formula E racing environment.
In partnering with Acronis, VENTURI joins an impressive portfolio of sporting clubs and high-profile motorsport teams including DS TECHEETAH, NIO Formula E Team, SportPesa Racing Point, Williams F1, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, Prema, and Premier League football teams Manchester City and Arsenal.
