RackForce, an infrastructure provider for hosting and applications, yesterday announced that it now offers enterprise grade backup service for its hosted server customers by utilizing IBM Tivoli Storage Manager in line with Storage Area Networks and LTO4 tape systems.
A company spokesperson stated that many enterprise products like IBM Tivoli have traditionally not been available to the small to medium size business. Now that larger hosting infrastructure providers have the economies of scale to attract vendors like IBM they can provide the technology as a service and make it affordable for everyone. Now solutions providers, ISVs and hosting companies can provide first class backup for their customers.
The company will begin providing its Tivoli backup service on its 5000, 5100, 5300 and 5350 Server models with Windows or Linux Operating Systems and DDS Windows Virtual Private Servers. It will be affordably priced on a monthly flat rate plus overages.
RackForce's General Manager, Randall Robinson explained, "Hosting infrastructure providers are in the business of providing reliability but our industry has not typically provided backup solutions capable of supporting the fast growing online web sites and applications. We knew we could not stay status quo on this and decided after much research and planning that the award winning Tivoli backup solution was the answer."
