Consonus & Prodigy Networx to Launch Online Backup Service

Cliff Boodoosingh on February 23, 2009
CARY, N.C. and Provo, U.T. – Prodigy Networx will provide the Consonus Technologies (CTI) developed Remote Backup Service (RBS) to their various clients.

The alliance is an outgrowth of Consonus’ channel partner strategy to make its investment in data centers and its high service levels available to the channel for the first time. Under the Prodigy Networx alliance, CTI and Prodigy are providing RBS to a wide variety of clients, large and small, to help them improve operational efficiency, to increase profitability and satisfy regulatory requirements. The combined expertise of the two companies enables customers to access current, best-of-class technology without the substantial capital expense.

CTI’s RBS is an alternative to traditional backup methods, replacing conventional solutions with a fully automated online solution. RBS provides automated backups of heterogeneous file servers as well as application and database servers with encrypted, secure offsite storage, and rapid online restoration. The RBS offering includes 24x7 monitoring of customers’ backup environments provided in a Consonus SAS 70-compliant network operations center.

Consonus CEO Mike Shook says, “Traditional backup solutions can be difficult and costly to operate. With RBS, customers receive an efficient way to recover mission-critical data on demand through a enterprise-class solution without the added headcount and capital investment.”

According to the June 2008 Information Technology Report from McKinsey, current data storage growth rates of 50 percent per year are driving current backup systems to the breaking point. The backup failure rates associated with conventional backup solutions such as tape have left many companies unable to restore crucial data at a time when increasingly stringent regulations have made data protection and recoverability a critical business decision.

“RBS gives customers fast, easy restores in the event of data loss, along with the confidence that their data is properly protected and restorable,” adds Shook.

Mike Lewis, principal at Prodigy Networx, sees RBS as an essential tool for its customers. “RBS allows customers to restore data on demand—a critical objective for many of our clients enabling them to focus their resources on strategic initiatives and day-to-day operations, leading to a competitive edge in the marketplace.”
