With data growth reaching record volumes, companies are confronted with myriad associated challenges. Information must be kept secure and in line with compliance regulations, archives must be easily searchable for legal purposes and storage capacity must be scalable without encouraging wasteful expansion and sprawl. Better data management enables companies to keep spending under control, avoid information leakage and simplify eDiscovery and compliance. Employing managed services optimizes solution effectiveness and reduces capital and operational expenses. The addition of UbiStor's SafeStor Enterprise to the SHI Cloud Marketplace brings together SHI's Management and Support Services and UbiStor's state-of-the-art CommVault-as-a-Service capabilities to meet these goals.

Leveraging CommVault Simpana Modern Data Management software and UbiStor infrastructure and managed services, SafeStor Enterprise is a scalable, pay-as-you-grow cloud solution that allows companies to manage their storage environment - backups, recovery, archiving, collaboration and more - from a single console. SafeStor Enterprise is designed to help companies use their resources more efficiently by enabling precise planning, as well as by incorporating technologies such as deduplication and compression. Advanced encryption keeps files secure, and seamless recovery, whether across the entire environment or on a granular file level, ensures total data protection.

"In the current climate of massive information growth, companies need solutions for more intelligent data management and better oversight of the files in their storage environment," UbiStor CEO, Dan Hill said. "Whether they are looking to improve their eDiscovery processes, implement a more effective backup and recovery solution or adopt a tool that enables them to expand storage capacity in a smart, scalable way, businesses will find substantial value in a fully managed CommVault-as-a-Service solution. The partnership between SHI and UbiStor will bring these key services to more customers and make them easy to access in the SHI Cloud Marketplace."

"Our clients are hungry for solutions that solve big problems," SHI Cloud General Manager, Richard Place, stated. "They are challenged with explosive data growth and need automated, fully managed solutions that solve the current problem and lay a solid foundation for successfully addressing the future. CommVault-as-a-Service provides just that and perfectly suits the essence of SHI Cloud Marketplace." 

The SHI Cloud Marketplace launched in November, giving SHI customers easy access to a wide array of cloud services and providers. In adding UbiStor's SafeStor Enterprise CVaaS offering, SHI continues to broaden the available provider options and improve the value of the cloud for its customers.
