Cyber protection and hybrid cloud storage company Acronis has been confirmed as an official partner to Formula E Championship team Nio, with the two parties having agreed a multi-year partnership.

Beginning with Season 5, the agreement will run through multiple seasons and will see Acronis provide cyber protection for Nio’s team through its full complement of backup, disaster recovery and file sync and share solutions.

Acronis will also use AI to help transform the predictive analytics capabilities of the race team, affording the squad increased capacity with which to deal with any unexpected race events.

Gérry Hughes, team principal, Nio, said, “While we are entering into a new technical arena which will open up new mechanisms of data analysis and predictive capability in the often-turbulent world of street racing, the partnership with Acronis extends to the wider Nio business. Hence, this is truly a global partner which we are proud to have alongside us.”
