Iron Mountain debuts cloud-based file archiving
Iron Mountain Digital, a provider of Storage-as-a-Service (StaaS) for backup and archiving, has added Virtual File Store service to its digital archiving and StaaS portfolio.

The Virtual File Store solution is an enterprise-class, cloud-based storage archiving service, designed to help companies reduce costs of storing and managing static data files, the Boston-based company said.

As companies search for cost-effective solutions to manage massive amounts of digital information, with Iron Mountain Digital's service model, companies can deploy cost-effective cloud-based storage with enterprise-grade security, according to John Clancy, president of Iron Mountain Digital.

With virtually unlimited storage capacity, Iron Mountain said the Virtual File Store can be integrated with a company's existing storage infrastructure to migrate inactive files over the VPN network to its secure, redundant data centers. Authorized users and applications can then retrieve files on-demand via an Internet connection from anywhere at anytime within the corporate environment.
