Established in 1998, Core DataCloud is a leading UK managed service provider of private cloud backup and recovery-as-a-service solutions for midmarkets. The company’s commitment to excellence, as well as an affordable pricing strategy, have resulted in dynamic growth approaching 100 percent per annum. Core DataCloud and its SMB customer base rely on next-generation IT storage platforms to power reliable, resilient backup and recovery capabilities.
Core DataCloud used a variety of storage systems to support its service offerings. Recently, the company’s accelerating growth made it consider next-generation scale-out infrastructure in the form of EMC Isilon.
“With the other systems, we were supporting 20 TB of client data. Today, we are supporting over 100 customers and over 100 TB of data. We recognized the need for new technologies that would be easily scalable to meet future growth and support excellence in backup and recovery private cloud hosted services,” says Sharad Saggar, CEO, Core DataCloud.
Increasing demand on infrastructure also required higher performance to meet customer SLAs. Core DataCloud was committed to a two- to four-hour recovery time objective (RTO). However, the company was experiencing challenges.
“What we required was transformational technology that provided the performance required to meet or exceed our SLAs; that would quickly scale to meet ever-increasing data growth; and that would give us the agility, flexibility, and ease of management to supply solutions to new customers quickly.”
