The river of news keeps flowing. Here’s another roundup:
- High-availability data center provider Fortrust said today that it will offer Remote Data Backup services from Incentra to both current customers and companies that are not colocated in the data center. The service will allow companies that have several locations to back up their data to one secure location. “Remote Data Backup and restoration really provides two layers of data protection at once,” said Rob McClary, vice president of Fortrust. “It provides automated, managed data protection for companies that are resource-constrained, and as part of the process provides remote storage of that data as a default, so that companies don’t have to worry about managing off-site data storage and archiving as well.”
- Managed hosting provider Carpathia Hosting has been selected by organizations such as Echo360, Nuvolus, Ventraq, Voices Heard Media and a leading federal systems integrator to provide customized managed cloud solutions using its Carpathia AlwaysOn/InstantOn hybrid model. Components of the AlwaysOn/InstantOn model are highly flexible and can be used to design custom solutions to meet the specific needs of individual organizations.
