Consonus and Strategic Technologies Announce New iBackup Remote Service

CARY, N.C., July 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Consonus and Strategic Technologies, both companies of Consonus Technologies, Inc. (CTI), today announced the launch of their iBackup Remote (iBR) service, the latest in their suite of IT managed services offerings. iBR is a unique alternative to traditional data backup methods, replacing conventional solutions with a fully automated online solution.

Organizations of all sizes and across all industries are becoming more reliant on information and technology critical to their business operations. Companies that do not protect their IT assets put their business at risk by being unable to retrieve data in the event of system downtime or major catastrophic incident, failing to comply with industry and government regulations, and jeopardizing productivity.

"Many of the exciting developments happening in business and IT every day are increasingly demanding in terms of financial and security considerations," says Mike Shook, CEO of CTI. "Businesses today need cost-effective solutions that are easy to implement and manage, that improve their ability to recover quickly in the event of a disaster, and that are better aligned with the increasing value of data."

iBackup Remote addresses these needs through the provision of automated backups of file servers and application and database servers with secure offsite storage and rapid online restoration. In the event of a disaster, a company's data can be restored online or via a portable disk device delivered to a specified location.

"iBR is a turnkey service that offers businesses a comprehensive, cost-effective solution for their backup and recovery needs," says Geoff Sinn, vice president of managed services at CTI. "It leverages our existing expertise and infrastructure, including our Tier IV data center facilities, to provide customers with levels of service previously unavailable in the industry."

The iBR service allows companies to expand their disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities and stay current with the latest backup and recovery technology, without the costly migration or upgrade processes -- or staffing requirements -- typical with traditional solutions.

"Our iBackup Remote solution has been developed to provide the best combination of data security and availability for any size company," says Sinn.
