Storage Guardian is a private company specializing in backing up critical data on a “pay-as-you-go” basis to a secure off-site location. The company supports small, mid-size and enterprise customers operating multiple platform LAN computing environments which have the need to safeguard their critical business data in a secure, off-site location.
Storage Guardian’s customers are typically in regulated industries, such as healthcare, financial services and government where there is a regulatory or audit requirement for multi-year, off-site retention of business-critical data. Initially, Storage Guardian opted for a self-hosted solution, utilizing two-layer fiber operated out of the company’s own data center facility. However, with the business growing and expanding into new countries and markets, senior management began looking at other options.
Storage Guardian had a pre-existing relationship with Aptum for the provision of networking services. With the decision to embrace colocation made, they began working with Aptum’s team on the plan. Storage Guardian sees the company’s future growth driven in partnership with Aptum. It operates multiple Metro LAN sites and has dedicated Internet at both the Pullman and Montreal locations. The company also continues to purchase point-to-point network services from Aptum.
