Press: Datum and partner blocz IO launch joint data backup and restore platform

Datum clients prize the high levels security and resilience offered by our Farnborough data centre. In line with those priorities, protection and backup of key data are also top of mind for most CIOs.

With this in mind, Datum have established a partnership with Hampshire-based blocz IO to offer an onsite, enterprise grade backup and restore platform to all clients and service providers.

Housed within the main Data Hall at Farnborough and connected directly to the core infrastructure of the data centre, the platform offers the following benefits:

  • Superfast Backup and Restore times at LAN speeds
  • Full 256-bit encryption in-flight and at rest
  • Replication of data to secondary UK based Datacentre
  • Additional support for WAN and cloud-based data
  • Full GDPR compliance for UK Data Sovereignty
  • Granular Restore and Retention capability
  • Extensive reporting through Management Portal

 

Building on Datum’s industry-leading service-enhanced secure colocation, this combined offering is one of the first joint backup and restore platforms to be brought to a UK based data centre.

“Launching a new blocz IO data backup and restore platform within the prestigious Datum data centre in Farnborough is fantastic news for existing Datum clients and prospective clients alike. With Ransomware hitting the headlines on an almost weekly basis in 2017, UK companies are now looking for a safe place to back their data up, beyond the reach of the cybercriminals. Not only that, they want to know if they need to use the service in anger, that the restoration will be fast and problem free. This new platform delivers on all of those needs.” (Randall Smedley, Chief Commercial Officer for blocz IO Limited)  

“We’re delighted to be partnering with blocz IO to deliver this valuable solution. Delivering an exemplary service and guaranteeing client peace of mind is our main goal here at Datum, which this combination of technology allows us to achieve.” (Dominic Phillips, Managing Director for Datum Datacentres)
