RagingWire’s enterprise grade Backup Services, powered by Symantec, offers customers a reliable, secure alternative to traditional tape-based solutions for their business critical data backup strategies
RagingWire Data Centers, the nation’s premier data center provider, announced today that the company now provides Backup Services to customers at its Sacramento, CA and Ashburn, VA data center campuses. The tapeless backup service also includes the option of replicating backup data securely via private, low-latency, redundant fiber routes between the two campuses. RagingWire’s Backup Services can be utilized by customers to unify their backup strategy across physical and virtual servers, multiple applications and databases, and multiple locations. The offering, powered by Symantec, an industry leader in backup and recovery, is an enterprise grade, highly secured and highly reliable alternative to cloud-based backup solutions.
“Symantec provides the infrastructure to support service providers, such as RagingWire, in delivering reliable backup services that give customers new choices in how they protect their information,” said Simon Jelley, senior director of product management at Symantec. “Symantec NetBackup is optimized for efficient and scalable backup and recovery and helps providers deliver best-of-breed data protection for today’s evolving data center.”
RagingWire’s backup services are comprised of three offerings: on-site backup, off-site replication, and replication targeting where customers who already utilize Symantec NetBackup™ as part of their infrastructure can replicate data from those devices to RagingWire’s devices for additional data protection. All three types of the service offer customer-level encryption, deduplication, full support for VMware and Hyper-V virtualized environments, and management and restoration performed by RagingWire’s 24x7 Network Operations Center staff.
“The addition of RagingWire’s backup product to our colocation services addresses the feedback of our customers – they wanted an in-house digital backup service with secure off-site replication,” said William Dougherty, vice president of information technology at RagingWire. “The product we have delivered exceeds those requirements with the security, ease of implementation, and reliability that our customers have come to expect from RagingWire.”
