Data center services provider US Signal has launched its new cloud-based data protection and disaster recovery solution with Cohesity. Cohesity Data Management from US Signal would provide an easy way for midsize organizations and enterprises to ensure their critical data is backed up and protected.
The new data protection and disaster recovery solution combines US Signal’s secured, scalable cloud resources with the multicloud data platform offered by Cohesity, a leading global data management provider.
Cohesity Data Management from US Signal would meet the requirements of a variety of use cases including providing ground-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud data protection and protecting workloads in US Signal’s PCI- and HIPAA-compliant public and private clouds.
“Data is critical to the operations of most companies, but it’s also at increasing risk of loss, inaccessibility, corruption, and compliance violations due to cyberthreats, data breaches and other factors,” said Matt VanderZwaag, Executive Vice President of Products and Services, US Signal. “The relationship with Cohesity enables our two organizations to combine complementary strengths to create a cost-effective, multi-faceted solution to help organizations overcome these risks. We look forward to working together to leverage this powerful resource to help customers dramatically reduce their TCO and increase operational efficiency while protecting and deriving more value from their data.”
Public and Private Cloud
The cloud-based data protection and DR solution would feature SLA-backed 100% data availability. It uses a pay-as-you-go consumption model. Because the solution is delivered ‘as-a-service’, no hardware investment is required. This would make it ideal for organizations under increasing pressure to reduce capital budgets during the current global pandemic.
US Signal’s Cohesity-powered service protects workloads in US Signal’s public and private cloud infrastructure. Full virtual machine (VM) protection is provided, including at the application and file-level, but doesn’t require the installation of an agent on the VMs. Deduplication of the data would help to reduce required storage space.
US Signal also offers organizations that use their Cohesity DataProtect solution for local backup to replicate to an offsite location as part of their disaster recovery (DR) service.
Customers would also have the ability to copy backups to S3 compatible object storage. Or it can be moved to tiered storage on a predetermined schedule to accommodate long-term data retention and compliance requirements.
“The combination of Cohesity’s multicloud data platform and the resources and expertise of US Signal provides customers with a modern, flexible and highly secure solution to manage their data,” said David Kosman, head of global service providers at Cohesity. “It also removes the complexities often associated with legacy data infrastructure. Data management has never been simpler.”
