Ultra Secure IT services provider expands capabilities by partnering with leading object storage provider
24 JUNE 2014: Ultra Secure IT services provider, The Bunker today launches its Ultra Secure Object Storage Cloud service, designed for businesses that want to use public cloud data storage but can’t. The new cloud service solves the challenges of security and compliance in the public cloud, whilst offering all the benefits of a consumption-based model for cost-effective storage of backup and archive data.
The Bunker’s managed service, created in partnership with Cleversafe, brings object-based storage to mid-size and smaller businesses. This will provide reduced cost data storage for customers hand-in-hand with Cleversafe’s market-leading technology, allowing them to take advantage of its scalability and inherent security, which encrypts data both in transit and at rest. The Bunker’s service adds the highest possible levels of both physical and digital security, ensuring extremely high levels of data availability, as well as a guaranteed UK location for data within its Ultra Secure Cloud.
Philip Bindley, CTO at The Bunker comments: “IT leaders are faced with increasing challenges for data storage; the amount of data is growing exponentially and storage is consuming an ever-greater share of available IT budget. The cost and flexibility of public cloud storage have offered some respite, but at the expense of security and compliance for many businesses. We believe our Object Storage managed service solves all of these challenges for businesses, particularly in providing secure robust cloud storage that addresses data sovereignty and compliance requirements.”
Cleversafe has been named a leader in object storage by leading analyst firms. Object-based storage separates metadata from object data, storing it all on one level, rather than as a hierarchy as with traditional file-based storage. This type of storage gives The Bunker customers an excellent future platform for growth, as well as the reduced cost advantages of consumption-based data storage with Ultra Secure protection.
Russ Kennedy, senior vice president of Product Strategy and Customer Solutions at Cleversafe adds: “We are very excited to see our storage technology being utilised as The Bunker’s secure cloud solution. Businesses who utilise the technology will not only benefit from cloud storage that will allow them to grow cost effectively, but also that will keep information safe and available, even as storage needs increase.”
