Data Protection Services, LLC an online backup service provider today announced that the company has opened a mirrored network operations center (NOC) and technical support center (TSC) in Hammond, LA. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Data Protection Services resolved to provide a level of redundancy unequaled in the online backup industry. With the opening of the Hammond NOC, client data is now secured by triplicate autonomous hardware in two geographically distant locations. With clients looking for rock-solid environments to store their critical data, the added layer of redundancy provided by the additional mirrored site mitigates the risks to data security posed by regional incidents and disasters.
“This announcement is essential in our goal of providing our clients total data security,” said Jeff Danos, CEO of Data Protection Services. “Although we survived Hurricane Katrina with zero downtime, we identified areas we felt could be strengthened and immediately developed plans to fully staff an additional NOC in central Louisiana. We chose Hammond because of its location at the intersection of major north-south and east- west transportation corridors and the availability of high speed fiber links.
“It is indicative of our commitment to provide the highest level of online backup service available anywhere to small and medium size businesses,” Danos said. He noted the company’s exclusive focus on quality online backup service has created a reputation for superior support and service that is hard to match.
“DPS offers business clients a cost-effective alternative to the ongoing technical support costs of managing their own backups,” he said. Data Protection Services has provided automatic remote backup to businesses throughout the United States and Canada since 1996.
