The firm is partnering with i365, a Seagate company, to offer EVault backup and recovery technology. 

Concentric, a provider of enterprise hosted IT solutions, announced that it has been recognized for product innovation by a leading industry publication while at the same time it has introduced Concentric Managed Backup, a new hosted service for SMBs.

Network Products Guide, a leading IT industry publication, has named Concentric Managed Server, a winner of its 2009 Product Innovation Awards. This annual award recognizes and honors vendors from all over the world with innovative and ground-breaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes and setting the bar for others in all areas of information technology.

Concentric Managed Server is an enterprise-class, highly available, fully managed hosting solution designed for small and medium sized enterprises (SME) on either Linux or Windows platforms. The Concentric Managed Server helps SME organizations host customer applications and websites, with cost-effective disaster recovery, as well as the flexibility to run mission critical applications that require servers to run in a fault-tolerant, high availability environment.

Meanwhile, Concentric announced the introduction of Concentric Managed Backup, a new hosted service to provide small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) with an advanced, affordable, and scalable data backup and recovery solution. Concentric Managed Backup addresses the challenges of explosive data growth while helping to solve critical business problems including regulatory compliance, disaster recovery, and data protection for local and remote offices.

Research firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) estimates annual data growth at 50 percent to 60 percent per year for many organizations. The inability to keep pace with data growth is putting increased pressure on already-strained backup windows and/or recovery objectives. In a survey of North American medium-sized businesses, ESG found that "internal pressure to reduce overall costs of doing business" ranked second in factors impacting IT infrastructure decisions. Businesses are also faced with increasing compliance regulations that involve data retention. Not meeting requirements can lead to penalties, legal sanctions, or damaged company reputation.

Concentric Managed Backup, powered by EVault backup and recovery technology from i365, a Seagate company, is an online, disk-to-disk solution providing 24/7 data protection and recovery without the need for additional investment in network or backup infrastructure. Concentric Managed Backup eliminates the shortcomings, inconvenience, and expense associated with tape backup by providing faster backup and recovery and addressing offsite data protection for regulatory compliance and disaster recovery.

Concentric Managed Backup delivers state-of-the-art automated online backup and recovery services using proprietary patent-pending technology to optimize performance and decrease storage footprint. Only new and changed data at the block level is compressed, encrypted, and transmitted offsite to one of Concentric's secure data centers where it is further de-duplicated. Customers can easily access, manage, and restore data through an easy-to-use web interface that simplifies data protection and frees IT staff to focus on other business critical applications.

Managed Backup Features and Benefits

Concentric Managed Backup provides secure and reliable data backup and recovery from a few gigabytes to multiple terabytes. With a wide breadth of operating systems and applications support, Concentric Managed Backup can easily backup and recover data on servers, applications, desktops, and notebooks. With data safely stored off-site in world-class data centers, Managed Backup is more reliable than tape back-up and makes restoring data a simple process. Other features and benefits include:

  • Reliable-Reduced risks to business continuity and revenue loss, strong disaster recovery capability, regulatory and statutory requirements for data retention.
  • Affordable-Enterprise features and benefits at SMB prices, lowered administrative, infrastructure and operational costs, reduced downtime costs, IT resources freed to pursue other priorities.

  • Secure-FIPS-approved AES encryption secures data end-to-end, from the moment that it leaves customer systems - and only customers have the password to unlock their own data.
