Acronis fuel our unforgettable F1 Barcelona experience

Mar 4, 2020

Communicate Better were whisked away for a money-can't-buy Formula 1 pre-season testing experience.

Hosted in beautiful Barcelona, the exclusive event - courtesy of our friends at Acronis and part of their 'CyberFit' campaign - saw the official unveiling of the Williams Mercedes FW43!

Our Service Delivery Lead Stephanie Everett - a newcomer to the F1 world - billed it as a "once in a lifetime experience"




Mike Standring, IT Director, added: "As a sponsor of the Williams F1 team, Acronis gave us a once in a lifetime opportunity for our petrol heads to attend the Barcelona Test day as VIPs."

"The event was a great day allowing us to cement our partnership with Acronis and Vuzion and of course stay ahead of the competition with Cloud backup and cyber security, whilst taking in the sights and smells of F1 at very close quarters."



For ROKiT Williams Racing, Acronis safeguards 200+ servers (defends physical and virtual SQL servers and files), 650+ workstations, 1000+ mailboxes (back up Microsoft Office 365 mailboxes & SharePoint accounts), and over 700 terabytes.

Acronis' cyber protection solution has helped Williams Racing better optimise their data protection.

Williams’ backup window has been significantly improved, going from days to minutes.



At the same time, their recovery time has reduced to just a few minutes, allowing Williams to access and restore any file from any point in time via an easy-to-use, touch-friendly web management interface.


Acronis Active Protection also adds an extra level of protection, guarding data against damage and downtime caused by ransomware attacks.

Meanwhile, at Communicate Better, our fruitful partnership with Acronis and Vuzion also helps us deliver Cyber Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery for your business.

With everything safely backed up in the Cloud, you're able to protect all your critical data from cyber threats and keep your business up and running at all times.





Speaking about the testing event, WILLIAMS Formula 1 driver George Russell said: "It was a productive day and good preparation ahead of Australia. I am optimistic that we can go to Melbourne and be in the fight, but until we get there we won’t know for sure."

He added: "Everyone in the team, here and at the factory, has done a fantastic job to ensure we managed to complete the majority of our planned programme."
