Interxion Enhances Managed Cloud Backup Solution



  • Cutting-edge compatibility with the latest public, private and hybrid cloud platforms
  • New local-only backup option enhances flexibility and lowers costs
  • New FIPS-certified encryption meets the highest international security standards

AMSTERDAM 24 February 2011INTERXION HOLDING NV, (NYSE: INXN), a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, has launched an enhanced version of its Secure Data Service (SDS) managed cloud backup service which provides a raft of new benefits for organisations of all sizes looking for a high-speed, agentless, pay-as-you-go backup solution for their mission-critical applications.

The new service is based on the latest version of Asigra’s industry-leading agentless cloud backup solution, currently deployed by more than 250,000 sites globally and relied on by leading service providers including CDW, HP and Verizon.

The latest version of SDS supports public, private and hybrid clouds, and extends its support for virtualised environments including Hyper-V, VMware and XenServer, using their latest native APIs agentlessly to deliver improved performance and usability. It offers a new low-cost local-only backup feature for on-premise data backup, enabling customers to allocate backup resource in proportion to data value.  And it provides a range of encryption options for data with FIPS 140-2 security certification, an independently-assessed standard recognised by government agencies internationally, including the US Department of Defence.

“Our new SDS solution leads the field in key areas at the same time as appealing to new users from medium-sized enterprises to international public sector agencies,” said Kevin Dean, Interxion CMO. “It delivers a full benefit set to public, private and hybrid cloud stacks, which will support enterprise customers attracted to Interxion’s Cloud Hub services portfolio. Local-only backup allows smaller organisations to tailor their backup to fit their needs, and the solution’s FIPS certification provides a level of compliance which is second to none for blue chips and the most security-conscious public sector organisations.”
