C7 Data Centers, a privately held colocation company with data centers exclusively in Utah, has launched a new suite of cloud hosting based data management services to increase the efficiency and security of C7’s backup service offering and to improve disaster recovery capabilities. The new data management services are powered by Actifio’s copy data virtualization platform.
Actifio virtualizes data as other technologies have virtualized compute and networking, decoupling the management of strategic enterprise data from enterprise infrastructure.
“I hear daily the urgent need from businesses across the nation for more efficient storage and data management approaches,” said Wes Swenson, CEO of C7 Data Centers. “We are excited to deliver on this requirement by unveiling C7’s new portfolio of enterprise cloud hosting services – delivering SLA levels not previously available – from a single, simplified data virtualization platform.”
Key features of C7’s new data management services would include:
- Application Vaulting – Bandwidth & storage efficient cloud data protection
- App Recovery Assurance – Business continuity in cloud hosting environment with testing automation
- Cloud On-Ramp Services – SLA-based data migration with zero production impact
- Application Development In Cloud – Up-to-date virtual copies available in a cloud hosting environment for accelerated dev/test
Actifio delivers copy data virtualization to hundreds of global enterprise customers and service provider partners in more than 30 countries around the world. Its Virtual Data Pipeline technology decouples data from infrastructure, which would enable dramatic improvements in business resiliency, agility, and access to cloud hosting environments. Actifio replaces siloed data management applications with a application-centric, SLA-driven approach that lets customers capture data from production applications, manage it more economically, and use it when and where they need to. The company is headquartered just outside Boston, Massachusetts.
