Paramount offers cloud backup with eHDF
eHDF to host servers for Paramount's new cloud backup and recovery offering
IT security company Paramount has signed eHosting DataFort to provide cloud backup solutions to its customers.
Paramount will be offering a ‘cloud safe' solution to its clients, with eHDF hosting high-end servers with over 12TB of storage capacity, to provide backup and recovery storage for users.
The solution was developed by Paramount engineers, and implemented at the eHDF data centre in 20 days. Paramount says the solution will be more efficient than traditional tape backup.
Ramani RV, Head of Service Delivery at Paramount, said: "The new hosting platform will help us enhance our services to clients and allow us to offer them backup disk storage in the cloud. We chose eHosting DataFort for their capability and strong presence in the UAE market. This is a new service that will enable us to provide our new and existing clients with added value and facilitate our expansion plans to markets such as Saudi Arabia.
"Statistics show that 70% of American companies use disks for back-up storage and in the UAE the same percentage of companies use tape. The shift to cloud storage is much needed here, offering not only environment benefits but also a more effective storage method."
eHDF was awarded the business after a meticulous selection process where factors such as location, flexibility, reliability, security, scalability and price/performance were considered.
Yasser Zeineldin, CEO at eHosting DataFort, said: "SMEs in the UAE and the Gulf region are huge contributors to the regional economy. They are becoming significantly more sophisticated in their business strategy and are investing in the latest technologically advanced systems and processes. Our hosting platform offers a unique ‘cloud safe' solution to companies that seek to build and expand on their existing business."
