SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Responding to the growing business challenge of managing increasingly large volumes of information, SHI International Corp. and UbiStor have partnered to bring UbiStor's industry-leading SafeStor Enterprise solution, powered by CommVault, to SHI today, and the SHI Cloud Marketplace later in 2014. A unified solution for data protection, storage management, archiving and eDiscovery, SafeStor Enterprise offers businesses unprecedented control over their data environment paired with the reliability and security of a Tier 3+ SSAE 16 SOC-2 Type II-certified data center infrastructure.
With data growth reaching record volumes, companies are confronted with myriad associated challenges. Information must be kept secure and in line with compliance regulations, archives must be easily searchable for legal purposes and storage capacity must be scalable without encouraging wasteful expansion and sprawl. Better data management enables companies to keep spending under control, avoid information leakage and simplify eDiscovery and compliance. Employing managed services optimizes solution effectiveness and reduces capital and operational expenses. The addition of UbiStor's SafeStor Enterprise to SHI's strategic cloud services portfolio brings together SHI's Management and Support Services and UbiStor's state-of-the-art CommVault-as-a-Service capabilities to meet these goals.
Leveraging CommVault Simpana Modern Data Management software and UbiStor infrastructure and managed services, SafeStor Enterprise is a scalable, pay-as-you-grow cloud solution that allows companies to manage their storage environment - backups, recovery, archiving, collaboration and more - from a single console. SafeStor Enterprise is designed to help companies use their resources more efficiently by enabling precise planning, as well as by incorporating technologies such as deduplication and compression. Advanced encryption keeps files secure, and seamless recovery, whether across the entire environment or on a granular file level, ensures total data protection.
"In the current climate of massive information growth, companies need solutions for more intelligent data management and better oversight of the files in their storage environment," UbiStor CEO, Dan Hill said. "Whether they are looking to improve their eDiscovery processes, implement a more effective backup and recovery solution or adopt a tool that enables them to expand storage capacity in a smart, scalable way, businesses will find substantial value in a fully managed CommVault-as-a-Service solution. The partnership between SHI and UbiStor brings these key services to new customers and make them easier to access for SHI's existing customers."
"As businesses are challenged with explosive data growth, they will need a storage solution that is scalable and can provide them with easy automation, management and protection," said Richard Place, General Manager of Cloud Services, SHI International, Corp. "We are excited to partner with UbiStor to provide our customers with an enterprise-grade cloud solution to manage their storage environment and address those needs. The UbiStor solution is available today through SHI and as we continue to broaden our available provider options and improve the value of the cloud for our customers, UbiStor will also be a part of our online portal in the SHI Cloud Marketplace."
The SHI Cloud Marketplace launched in November, giving SHI customers easy access to a wide array of cloud services and providers. Later in 2014, UbiStor's SafeStor Enterprise CVaaS offering will also be available in the SHI Cloud Marketplace as SHI continues to broaden the available provider options and improve the value of the cloud for its customers.
