RestorePoint Migrates to T5@Atlanta Data Center as First Step in Offering Virtualization, Object Storage Management, and Disaster Recovery to Joint Customers

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Mar 22, 2016) - T5 Data Centers™ (www.t5datacenters.com), innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, and RestorePoint, a leader in enterprise data protection, virtualization and recovery, have entered into a strategic partnership to offer T5 customers data storage solutions. As part of the partnership, RestorePoint will relocate its hosted infrastructure to the T5@Atlanta colocation facility and offer enterprise data protection including data management, virtualization, backup and disaster recovery services to T5 Data Center customers across the country.

RestorePoint specializes in virtualizing and protecting data across public, private and hybrid clouds. The Data Virtualization platform, which leverages a single, physical, 'Golden' copy of production data, can be used for multiple business use cases. Examples include Data Protection (backups), Business Insights & Analytics, Business Continuity including Disaster Recovery, and Application Development/Testing. RestorePoint's Data Archival and Object Storage platform frees up production storage by moving aged data to a lower cost storage platform for long term retention, and thereby reduces the need to buy more storage. RestorePoint offers scalable solutions that accommodate growing data storage and management needs using T5's highly available and reliable data centers.

"Our customers look to T5 for highly reliable enterprise data center solutions, and through this partnership with RestorePoint we will now be able to offer turnkey virtualization, storage management, and disaster recovery services," said Craig McKesson, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Services for T5 Data Centers. "In fact, to demonstrate the power and versatility of this partnership, RestorePoint will be hosting its global data virtualization and protection platform at T5, starting with our T5@Atlanta data center. We see this strategic relationship as the ideal way to offer business-critical data center services to our customers that align with the ever-changing needs of their business."

"T5 is an ideal data center partner for RestorePoint," shares Abdul Altamimi, Founder and CTO of RestorePoint. Altamimi continues: "They are an innovative Tier III plus data center solution provider with a unique and highly reliable power redundancy feature. T5 has locations across the U.S., which gives RestorePoint the scale and expansion capabilities to provide our clients with geographic redundancy as needed. Additionally, T5 is strategically located slightly north of Atlanta in Alpharetta, GA, and less than three miles from RestorePoint's headquarters. Our engineers can quickly be onsite and be a true extension of our client's IT team in the event of a disaster." Altamimi goes on to say, "We strategically chose to move our Object Storage platform for Data Archival and long-term retention to T5@Atlanta, providing our clients maximum redundancy and flexibility, and world-class data protection."

Both T5 Data Centers and RestorePoint offer data support services that are ideally suited for healthcare, insurance, financial services, education, engineering, government agencies or any organization with a critical data need. Storing data using RestorePoint services hosted by T5 Data Centers helps customers lower operational costs while still maintaining ready access to archived and operational data.
