Data Storage Corporation, a major player in cloud storage and cloud computing for over 10 years focusing on data protection and business continuity solutions, has completed its latest infrastructure expansion, deploying new IBM (News - Alert) iSeries Disaster Recovery (DR) server hardware in its SAS70 Type II Westbury data center.
Officials with Data Storage Corporation said the equipment extends the company’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform, providing customers with scalable, hosted solutions for high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR), and provides secondary usage for the DSC’s main iSeries Data Center in Waltham, MA
“Drawing on our team’s expertise in IBM environments, Data Storage Corporation is a leader in developing customized business continuity and data protection solutions built on IBM iSeries hardware,” Matthew Grosso, executive vice president at Data Storage Corporation, said in a statement.
“Over the past year, we have seen tremendous interest in our HA services and thanks to IBM’s highly scalable and reliable architecture, we have been able to greatly expand the scope of our cloud services platform,” said Grosso.
Company officials said the Westbury upgrade follows a number of improvements completed throughout the Data Storage Corporation data center network, including significant expansion at its Waltham facility earlier this year.
According to company officials, these upgrades included expanded storage capacity and additional mirroring and server replication programs which will greatly enhance the resiliency and performance of the company’s hosted service offerings for its customers.
Earlier in June, Data Storage Corporation signed a Value-Added Reseller distribution agreement with Maximus Data Company of Westport, MA. Under terms of the agreement, Data Storage Corporation will support Maximus’ data storage, virtualization and cloud computing offerings with its SafeData Cloud, SafeData DR and SafeData Backup, Recovery and Archiving services focused on IBM iSeries/AS400 systems.
