Integralis becomes first UK customer for storage as a service from Iron Mountain

Iron Mountain : 24 July, 2009  (Application Story)
Backup and archiving service from Iron Mountain Digital will enable Integralis to cope with large growth levels using virtualised storage
Iron Mountain Digital, the technology arm of Iron Mountain Incorporated and provider of STorage-as-a-Service (STaaS) for backup and archiving, announced that it has signed its first European customer for its recently launched Virtual File Store service.

Iron Mountain's Virtual File Store solution is an enterprise-class cloud-based data archiving service designed to help companies reduce the costs of storing and managing inactive data. Multinational IT security company, Integralis chose Virtual File Store due to its proven ability to achieve efficiencies for businesses.

Iain Douglas, IT Director at Integralis said: "Integralis has experienced exponential growth in internal data generation and is currently storing 3.5 terabytes of data on its system. We have worked with Iron Mountain Digital over the past two years to help us manage this growth, and solutions such as Iron Mountain's automated, online LiveVault server backup solution have helped us to ensure that more control and flexibility of access to data has been achieved for our IT department."

"By piloting and now taking on the Virtual File Store service, we have not only been able to maintain the high levels of flexibility and accessibility to our data but also to make cost efficiencies as our inactive data can now be stored in the cloud. This service complements our mixture of server and tape based backup perfectly and has allowed us to gain a lot more control over our information," said Douglas.

Integralis currently uses the Virtual File Store solution to store inactive data and Iron Mountain's LiveVault server backup and recovery solution to protect its active operational data. With the Virtual File Store service in place, Integralis anticipate a 30 percent reduction in storage spend in the future. In particular, the company has found that specifically by combining LiveVault and Virtual File Storage services, significant cost efficiencies can be made to the business.

"We use three other services from Iron Mountain Digital and now with the addition of Virtual File Store, it's the missing link in their portfolio."

Integralis currently combines Iron Mountain Digital's Connected Backup for PC, Connected Backup for Server and LiveVault server backup and recovery solution for protecting and managing its information.

Richard Ellis, Manager of the UK & Ireland's direct and channel business at Iron Mountain Digital said: "We are delighted to announce Integralis as our first European customer to use the Virtual File Store service. After an audit, Integralis had 20 percent of its records marked as 'inactive' which was a huge area where cost savings could be made. The Virtual File Store solution allows Integralis to store vital, yet inactive records safely and still have on-demand access to them whilst reducing costs."

"Iron Mountain's core business helps customers to reduce the risks and costs associated with storing information. Innovation is also at the forefront of the business and it is solutions such as the Virtual File Store service that demonstrate our commitment to bringing market leading technologies and services to our customers," said Ellis.
