With the opening of its Atlanta Data Center, Data Protection Services (DPS) has added another geographically distant site for client data replication and storage, bringing its total facilities to four. Following Hurricane Katrina, the company set a goal of adding a geographically distant data center and getting it online prior to the start of the 2006 hurricane season. A lot of planning and effort over the past eight months have culminated in the successful opening of the Atlanta facility before the June 1st target date. Initially, the new data center will operate as a redundant site replicating data from the DPS primary data center. In the coming months, equipment will be added to provide full switchover capability.
“We demonstrated our resilience during Hurricane Katrina, which we weathered out of our New Orleans datacenter with ZERO DOWNTIME. The addition of the Atlanta data center adds another layer to our extreme level of data security.” said Jeff Danos, CEO of Data Protection Services. “The chance of a region-wide event disrupting operations over a wide area has been demonstrated by disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and 9/11. Because of the investment we have made in operational improvements and increased redundancy, our clients can be assured that if even a region-wide disaster strikes, their data will be safe and available to them.”
With ten years experience in managed online backup, Data Protection Services is a leader in providing data security and recoverability to business clients throughout the United States and Canada.
