Sentrum Colo joins forces with Backup Technology

HAYES, UK, 27 September 2012 – Sentrum Colo has partnered up with one of their clients, Backup Technology (BTL), enabling them to offer their customers backup and disaster recovery services.

With a large number of organisations going out of business after suffering a major computing and IT disaster, business continuity and disaster recovery plans are extremely important to safeguard the future of a business. This new partnership allows Sentrum Colo’s customers to plan ahead by using this offering to protect highly sensitive and critical data, ranging from 50GB to more than 100TB and enabling customers to be fully FAS, PCI and Freedom of Information compliant. Sentrum Colo also offers customers dedicated, secure office and business continuity suites, providing segregated network and private WAN access whilst working offsite at Sentrum Colo’s data centre in Hayes.

“When an IT disaster occurs within an organisation we know that the first point of action is salvaging all critical data and getting the business up and running again. Disaster recovery and business continuity plans are essential to overcome the effects of a critical event by allowing organisations to continue all normal business activities almost immediately after the incident occurs. For this reason we are extremely pleased that we are able to offer our customers backup and disaster recovery services through this partnership with Backup Technology,” said Graham Monro, Sales Director at Sentrum Colo.

Backup Technology’s main Southern England site is situated in Sentrum Colo’s List-X rated, Tier III+ data centre in Hayes, near Heathrow where they are currently hosting 5 racks with that number expected to grow significantly over the next 12 months.

“Companies are realising the cost and security benefits of our backup, disaster recovery and business continuity solutions. Our customers benefit from reliability, security, efficiency and performance and a peace of mind that their data is safe. In addition our solutions help Compliance and Information Security Officers meet regulations imposed by governing bodies, said Simon Chappell, CEO, Backup technology. “Sentrum Colo’s customers are now able to easily take advantage of our solutions and quickly implement an effective backup and disaster recovery strategy that will safeguard their data from disasters, whether they are natural or caused by human error.”
