InTechnology announced today that EMC Centera customers can now benefit from its advanced, mission critical data centers, by providing remote data replication and 24X7 managed storage services allowing complete disaster recovery protection.

Centera provides businesses with a simple, scalable, secure storage solution for cost-effective retention, protection and disposition of crucial information, such as x-rays, voice archives, electronic documents, e-mail archives, cheque images or CAD/CAM designs.

Roy Sanford, EMC Vice President, Content Addressed Storage, said, “We recognise InTechnology’s ability to provide robust managed data services. Combined with EMC Centera’s capabilities, customers can achieve environmental resilience as well. Centera uses content mirroring protection, which replicates all information within a local Centera cluster to support automatic recovery from component failures. Through replicating the Centera storage solution at InTechnology’s data centre and providing state-of-the-art managed services, customers will have added resilience through site duplication.”

InTechnology enables customers to benefit from increased service levels without the high costs typically associated with resilient infrastructures. Adam Fawsitt, InTechnology’s Head of Strategic Alliances, adds, “This is a compelling proposition for IT Directors. InTechnology replicates data stored in EMC Centera to a secure off-site location, thereby enhancing a customers’ ability to satisfy compliance requirements and improve business continuity, all at a significant cost reduction over operating in-house network and data centre infrastructures.”

Through a self-healing capability, Centera continually monitors itself to detect and repair soft errors. It also automatically reconfigures itself and replicates objects as necessary if hardware failures occur, which are reported through EMC’s remote monitoring system. By replicating to an off-site location, data will be even more secure.

Centera facilitates compliance for the most stringent regulatory requirements. It is the optimal solution for fixed content, providing functionality not available in tape, optical or traditional disk solutions at a lower total cost of ownership.
