-- Through the partnership with SDC, Backbone Connect will offer its clients a cost-effective and high-quality outsourced solution that is designed to remove many of its clients’ current barriers to Cloud services, including cost, skills shortages and lack of a high quality, secure data centre.
David Taylor, Sales Director, Backbone Connect, comments, “As businesses across all industry sectors place continually growing importance on IT as a fundamental part of their organisation, it is imperative that companies know that their data and IT services are in safe hands. Partnering with SDC will allow us to provide our customers with the peace of mind that their data is stored in a secure and concurrently maintainable environment.”
Taylor adds, “When selecting our most recent Data Centre partner, Sovereign was top of our list. Sovereign’s immaculately-
designed premises, overall ethos when it comes to IT and data security (ISO 27001), together with their Tier III accreditation which they are currently in the process of securing, made SCD an obvious choice for us on behalf of our clients.”
The racks each have their own managed environment, with air temperature and moisture ingress monitored and controlled. If Backbone Connect needs on-site support, SDC’s in-house engineers are available 24/7 to provide a rapid response to any issues that may arise, preventing potential incursions from escalating into a disaster.
Taylor concludes, “I am looking forward to growing our partnership with SDC and offering our clients a reliable and secure colocation service via SDC. We are both very much like-minded companies and I am therefore confident that our partnership will be a great success.”
