Our aim is to provide a complete solution to enable businesses to migrate their system from one source to another. This can sometimes be a complicated process, which is why we have created this package. We looked at several imaging vendors, but Acronis was the obvious choice for its ease of use and reliable technology.

Acronis, a provider of easy-to-use backup, disaster recovery and security solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced that it has teamed up with Origin Storage to provide an easy to use package which allows users to migrate their operating system, applications, settings and data from hard disk drives (HDDs) to self encrypting drives (SEDs).

This package comes as part of Origin Storage’s Enigma range which includes the Acronis True Image solution. This package can capture an operating system, including applications, settings and data. The tool will allow users to easily migrate from their existing system to a new SED.

The package comes with a kit that includes a USB / SATA data transfer cable for ease of installation. Once the image has been migrated, Origin Storage customers can also use encryption capabilities to lock down the data on their SEDs. The encryption data comes courtesy of Winmagic.

Andy Cordial, managing director at Origin Storage, explains: “Our aim is to provide a complete solution to enable businesses to migrate their system from one source to another. This can sometimes be a complicated process, which is why we have created this package. We looked at several imaging vendors, but Acronis was the obvious choice for its ease of use and reliable technology.”

David Blackman, general manager Northern Europe at Acronis, said: “As the demand for self encrypted drives continues to rise, Acronis True Image HD has become the preferred solution for vendors like Origin Storage who want to give their customers a proven, reliable product that helps users make the most of their technology investment.”

All three drives come in a 2.5 inch form factor and use 256-bit AES hardware encryption. The drives start at £249 for a 160GB version, and span up to 500 GB for £299.
