Iron Mountain has announced the launch of Iron Mountain Iron Cloud, an enterprise-class cloud storage platform and services offering for comprehensive data protection, preservation, restoration and recovery.
With Iron Cloud, organizations can deploy a hybrid data management strategy with all the benefits of a cloud service, but with predictable cost models and integrated security that scales for enterprises of all sizes, as well as data accessibility through a self-service portal providing transparency and control for efficient storage operations.
Iron Cloud provides on demand block and object storage, accessible through secure connectivity from the enterprise to Iron Mountain's network of secure data centers. Iron Cloud addresses the critical stages of enterprise data management with advanced orchestration and automation for managing data sprawl, while securing data in motion and at rest and catering to the unique security and operational needs of medical imaging, surveillance video and other specialty media.
Iron Cloud offers technologies that enable end-to-end data management capabilities including backup, archive, recovery from disruption, and deep storage (to tape media). The platform provides:
- Predictable cost: enterprises pay only for the data that is being protected, for a pay-as-you-go service model.
- Operational efficiency: Iron Cloud augments on premise storage administration with automated system management tasks and workflows to provide predictable, repeatable and reliable operations for data in the cloud.
- Security and data protection: intelligent data protection and secure data migration services ensures that the requirements for protection and compliance dictated by the data are met.
- Data accessibility: industry-leading service level agreements ensure data is intact, available and accessible based on business requirements.
- Data shuttle services: Iron Mountain expands its cloud migration services with a data shuttle offering for fast and secure onboarding of customers' data to Iron Cloud.
