WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – July 25, 2011 – Today DataChambers is introducing a new Cloud Hosting service that will enable companies to replace or extend their existing server network without making a costly capital investment. A secure, high-performance computing infrastructure will be accessible over the Internet – hosted, maintained and managed by DataChambers.
Companies using the service can use Cloud Hosting to replace their existing servers, to augment their existing computing capabilities or to provide redundant processing capacity in the event of an in-house network outage. In each instance they will have the ability to respond to changing information technology needs, without sacrificing performance or paying for excess, unused capacity.
“We’ve designed Cloud Hosting for maximum flexibility so companies can respond quickly to changing business dynamics and budgets,” said Nicholas Kottyan, CEO of DataChambers. “They can lower their hardware and maintenance costs, improve scalability and eliminate the headaches that can come with managing their own in-house servers.”
DataChambers has made significant investments to prepare for the new service offering and ensure maximum availability. The company has added additional high-speed Internet ports to expand network connectivity and new high-availability cloud infrastructure and routers to expand capacity. It also has upgraded existing servers and routers for compliance with IPv6, an emerging Internet protocol.
Cloud Hosting is engineered to meet each client’s objectives and is monitored and managed around-the-clock by the DataChambers network operations team. The service is supported by an onsite power substation and dual power grids, multiple backup generators, state-of-the-art security and surveillance systems, and redundant connectivity to virtually every major communications carrier in the country. In addition, DataChambers and its team are SAS 70 Type II audited to ensure continuous protection of client systems and data.
Cloud Hosting Helps Clinical Ink Manage Peak Demand
One of the early adopters of Cloud Hosting is Clinical Ink, a pioneering provider of electronic source records for clinical trials. DataChambers houses and manages the servers Clinical Ink uses to deliver applications to clients around the globe. With rapid growth, though, Clinical Ink’s processing needs have begun to exceed its current hardware investment.
“Cloud Hosting helps us keep in sync with customer demand,” says Doug Pierce, Clinical Ink CEO. “We can easily scale our capability as our needs ebb and flow, while keeping our hardware investment steady. It’s a much more flexible and affordable alternative than buying new servers to handle peak processing needs.”
John Taylor, Clinical Ink’s director of information technology, credits network designers at DataChambers with quickly engineering an effective solution to support the growing business.
“Within 48 hours, the cloud hosting services we needed were established, and we were up and running,” Taylor said. “We’ve been delighted with the service and the support we’ve gotten from the DataChambers team.”
