Network storage and hosting firm Rackspace has released a pair of new systems designed to bolster its storage and disaster recovery portfolio.
The company said that the two systems target storage area network and network attached storage setups, and will be available as managed systems.
Both models are part of Rackspace's new disaster recovery platform, which includes replication and archiving services to to ensure that data is protected in the event of a disaster that could damage or destroy on-site hardware systems.
Taylor Rhodes, vice president and general manager for enterprise services at Rackspace, explained that the platform was released after customer demand for backup and recovery services.
"They are telling us they need a partner to provide important but non-strategic functions, and they want to buy them as services rather than pouring their own capital and IT resources into them," he said.
"We are now able to offer our most complex customers solutions designed for their storage and data replication needs."
Rackspace has also updated its hosted messaging and collaboration offerings to allow companies to run hosted deployments of Microsoft Exchange 2007 and SharePoint.
