Savvis, Inc. (SVVS) has expanded its utility storage services, adding a storage offering for less-frequently accessed data that will be more affordable than its current storage services. Utility Storage quality-of-service 4 (QoS 4) targets lower tier persistent data, which Savvis says is one of the fastest growing segments of the storage market. The company also announced NAS Connect (Network Attached Storage Connect) and Utility Backup NAS as options for customers who use NAS as well as storage area network (SAN) storage.

“Savvis’ expansion of its Utility Storage Services portfolio and the introduction of NAS Connect respond to increasing customer requests and growing market demand identified for flexible and scalable utility storage services,” said James Whitemore, Chief Marketing Officer for Savvis.


“Faced with considerable data growth, organizations are seeking ways to store, manage, archive and retrieve all files in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible,” Whitemore added. “Utility Storage QoS 4 and NAS Connect provide strategic solutions for companies seeking to lower cost of ownership, reduce management, and improve productivity.”

Savvis recently announced that it will expand its data center space in Chicago, Boston, London and Singapore, raising Savvis’ total data center footprint to 1.45 million square feet of raised floor in 31 facilities worldwide.
