New Expansion More than Triples Existing Footprint and Expands Hosted Services and Storage Capabilities
Garden City, N.Y. and Waltham, MA – May 14, 2012 – Data Storage Corporation (DTST:OB), a long-standing leader in cloud storage and cloud computing for over 10 years focusing on data protection and business continuity solutions, today announced the completion of phase 1 and 2 of its three-phased expansion plan for its Waltham data center facility.
Phase 1 and 2 completion has significantly increased its footprint in the state-of-the-art, SAS70 type II/SSAE16 SOC1 facility with the additional installation of IBM’s iSeries High Availability and Disaster Recovery server hardware, as well as the new IBM iSeries Hosted Cloud solution. The new systems will enable the company to more quickly respond to increased customer demand for its cloud hosted solutions including High Availability, data storage and Disaster Recovery services.
“Demand for our hosted solution offerings, especially in HA and DR services geared towards SMB customers, has grown significantly over the past year,” said Matthew Grosso, executive vice president and CTO at DSC. “The completion of our phase 1 & 2 expansion in Waltham is just another step in our multi-year roadmap as we plan to meet greater demands for our High Availability and Disaster Recovery services. These expansions will enable us to roll out additional cloud services over the coming months.”
In addition to the added High Availability and Disaster Recovery capacity upgrades, the expansion also significantly expands the company’s cloud-based offsite storage and data vaulting capabilities, a market expected to surpass $7.2 billion in spending by 2014 (International Data Corp). These data services are increasingly in demand by companies in highly regulated industries such as finance and healthcare where the need for storage on physical media like tape back-up is often too slow and inadequate for their business needs and is exposed to risks such a loss, theft and degradation of media.
