phoenixNAP Boosts Capabilities of its Data Security Cloud Solution

phoenixNAP improves its Data Security Cloud platform to allow for greater storage and performance efficiencies

Phoenix, AZ, October 29, 2019 – phoenixNAP®, a global IT services provider offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialized Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, today announced new delivery models and architecture enhancements of its Data Security Cloud (DSC) solution. Leveraging cutting-edge technologies, phoenixNAP enabled greater agility of its secure cloud environment while further improving on its performance, backup, and management capabilities.

Data Security Cloud is phoenixNAP’s secure-hosted multi-tenant platform that uses strict virtualization and segmentation controls on powerful hardware to provide robust platform for sensitive workloads. The enhancements in the newest version include a new delivery model enabling organizations to choose between DSC Essentials and DSC Advanced platform. In addition to this, the solution will include a more flexible backup storage tiering option and improved threat management controls.

Leveraging Veeam® backup technology, the improved Data Security Cloud includes cloud backups to the amount of 50 or 100 per cent of total storage volume, depending on the chosen plan. Both DSC Essentials and Advanced provide threat management capabilities such as 24/7 SOC, endpoint protection, threat-risk intelligence, anti-virus and vulnerability scanning, as well as vulnerability remediation and intelligence, behavioral analytics, and security posture report.

“The release of the enhanced Data Security Cloud is a new milestone in our journey towards the secure cloud,” said Ian McClarty, President at phoenixNAP. “The platform just got stronger and more robust, providing even greater protection for our clients’ critical workloads. We are excited to present DSC Essentials and DSC Advanced to the world and provide organizations with a powerful security solution. Data Security Cloud is built to withstand any disaster scenario or security breach while the new capabilities make it easier to deploy and manage.”

The enhanced Data Security Cloud also includes all-flash vSAN by VMware, which provides greater flexibility in terms of performance storage scaling. VMware vSAN is an industry-leading Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) solution and a pioneer of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). Integrated directly into DSC, it helps deliver intensive applications with lower latency and greater cost-effectiveness.

In addition to this, it provides an efficient performance storage option that is easily integrated into existing virtualized infrastructures, eliminating the need to purchase a traditional storage system and allowing for greater agility. As such, the solution is particularly convenient for demanding workloads such as gaming applications, high-transaction databases, parallel distributed file systems, and mission-critical applications.

“The enhancements to Data Security Cloud are designed to provide organizations with more flexibility and performance,” said Jim Aluotto, senior director, Cloud Provider Business, Americas Region, VMware. “VMware Cloud Providers such as phoenixNAP are empowering organizations of different sizes with a simple and flexible path to the cloud that supports their growth, performance and security goals.”

“The all-flash vSAN technology significantly expands the capabilities of our Data Security Cloud,” said William Bell, Executive Vice President of Products at phoenixNAP. “Using SSD flash disks for both cache tier and Capacity tier, it enables easier management of storage resources while ensuring advanced performance. With that capability inside of Data Security Cloud, our customers can maximize the use of their infrastructure. Coupled with a more flexible storage tiering option and improved resource management controls, all-flash vSAN provides a more powerful cloud platform for sensitive and regulated workloads.”
