Forsythe Hosting Solutions has announced a new multi-cloud private storage solution that would enable organizations to tap into the power of the cloud without sacrificing the security or performance of their data.
Forsythe‘s Multi-Cloud Private Storage offering was developed to address the needs of enterprises that are considering or have already begun using the public cloud, but have concerns about data privacy, compliance and performance.
The new offering would enable organizations to replicate their data to a secondary storage device that resides inside Equinix data centers ‘next to’ rather than ‘in’ the cloud. This would allow companies to maintain complete control over their data and satisfy any current or future data privacy compliance requirements.
In addition, because the data resides within the same facility as the Equinix Cloud Exchange, with its private access points to multiple cloud providers, clients would be enabled to leverage the flexible compute advantages of cloud without having to sacrifice performance.
This fully managed offering from Forsythe is an end-to-end, turnkey multi-cloud storage solution that would combine:
- The data security, flexibility and multi-cloud choice of NetApp Private Storage (NPS) technology, hosted in Equinix’s data centers around the globe to provide low latency by being ‘next to’ the cloud.
- Direct, private access to a growing ecosystem of cloud service providers inside Equinix data centers via Equinix Cloud Exchange. This interconnected approach would allow companies to boost cloud application performance, reduce latency, and scale and improve network control and visibility.
- The speed and automated provisioning of Equinix’s Cloud Exchange technology.
- Forsythe’s architecture design and implementation services, procurement services, and managed storage and networking services.
“By collaborating with Forsythe, together we can combine Forsythe‘s breadth of expertise – from security to infrastructure and hosting – together with Equinix’s global footprint of data centers and advanced interconnection solutions,” said Greg Adgate, vice president of technology partners and alliances, Equinix. “This enables us to bring to market an innovative multi-cloud offering that provides tremendous convenience to our enterprise customers who want to quickly harness the speed of cloud while keeping their data secure and compliant.”
