Savvis Responds to Storage Demand

ST. LOUIS -- SAVVIS, Inc. (NASDAQ:SVVS), the global leader in IT infrastructure services for business applications, today announced new Utility Storage Services that expand its ability to serve both production data and persistent data tiers of storage to meet various application requirements.

SAVVIS Utility Storage quality-of-service 4 (QoS 4) is a new managed storage service serving one of the fastest growing segments of storage lower tier, persistent data – which typically consists of large volumes of less frequently accessed data. The new service is extremely scalable, highly available, and less expensive than other managed storage options.

The new QoS 4 service complements SAVVIS’ existing Utility Storage Services for storage area network (SAN) capacity supporting I/O-intensive applications on a multi-tenant platform for customers with colocation and/or managed compute services environments. SAVVIS Utility Storage customers benefit from the features of an enterprise-class storage array that is managed, administered and monitored by SAVVIS without having to absorb the costs of a fully dedicated array.

In addition, SAVVIS offers Utility Backup and Vaulting Services to provide scheduled backup of live business data, data encryption, restore on demand, and data vaulting to an offsite secure location. Storage Care and Backup Care solutions tailored to unique customer environments supporting customers’ storage arrays and SAN fabric round out SAVVIS’ Storage solutions.

SAVVIS also announced NAS Connect (Network Attached Storage Connect) and Utility Backup NAS as an optional add-on service to protect customers’ NAS Connect-based data.
