Extra Space Storage Leverages ViaWest's Data Center to Support Disaster Recovery Environments

Extra Space Storage uses ViaWest's data center and managed services to support its production and disaster recovery environment.

 Under this collaboration, Extra Space Storage utilizes ViaWest's secure infrastructure services. It can further ensure high performance and reliability for its 1000+ professionally managed self-storage properties across the U.S.

Extra Space Storage is the second largest operator of self-storage in the U.S. The company’s convenient and safe state-of-the-art facilities are designed to meet each community's needs, along with direct access to on-site storage experts who help guide clients across all types of industries.

Karl Wenger, Sr. Director of Network Services for Extra Space Storage, said in a statement, "A key reason we chose ViaWest is that it's too cost prohibitive to build out our own infrastructure with fully redundant systems and ensure the high levels of security and performance that Extra Space requires. Experts like ViaWest can achieve economies of scale, and with their depth of advanced IT services such as database administration, Extra Space has access to the best portfolio of options." 

ViaWest's 27 data centers offer a full range of infrastructure services including colocation, cloud computing and managed services suite. The company offers a business solution suite that includes disaster recovery and business continuity, green data center strategy planning, along with support for meeting today's stringent compliance regulations. It provides managed services, including database administration under the Oracle (News - Alert) Premier Database Administration, Clustering, and Standby platform.

Bill Hoban, chief technology officer for Extra Space Storage commented, "Extra Space has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years and therefore needs a very flexible and secure IT platform. It's essential for us to properly and rapidly scale, and by partnering with ViaWest we can be assured we are maximizing the most optimal and suitable technology for our specific requirements."
