Mount Prospect, IL, September 23, 2013 – Cyber Innovation Labs (CIL), a leading provider of innovative Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions and professional services, announces the commissioning and operational delivery of its new 8,000-square-foot Tier 3+ enterprise cloud computing center located in Iron Mountain’s underground facility in Boyers, PA.
The first phase of customer delivery will house the new disaster recovery center for a leading global insurance carrier and a primary security services vendor to the U.S. Government. The new data center is designed as a Tier 3 enhanced / 2N standard facility and meets SSAE SOC 1 / SOC 2 and PCI DSS LEVEL 2.0 PCI compliance. In addition, CIL is in the process of meeting all requirements for FISMA and FedRAMP certification. The CIL FLEXCenter product portfolio is the focal point of the new data center and its location within Iron Mountain provides a unique combination of flexibility and security.
Features and Functions of FLEXCenter
FLEXCenter houses Cloud in a Vault (CiaV), a 100% dedicated, single tenant, fully managed and scalable private cloud offering with a service level agreement backed by a professional liability policy that offers up to $5,000,000 for guaranteed uptime. FLEXCenter enables clients to switch between private colocation and private cloud as business needs change and includes a parts/service depot within the facility. CiaV combines NEC’s Nblock™ integrated IT infrastructure with security, compliance and monitoring in a hosted environment. CiaV enables organizations to quickly and easily align business projects with infrastructure costs. This allows them to consume only the infrastructure needed, incurring only monthly operational expenses and zero capital expenses for equipment.
William Michael, director of Business Development for NEC Corporation of America (NEC), stated, “Cloud in a Vault offers optimal recovery capabilities by leveraging NEC’s proven SAN-based architecture and Software Defined Networking (SDN) product family – even during natural or human-induced disaster scenarios.” He added, “Traditional platforms require manual intervention in order to enable the recovery and use of data sets in a disaster situation. With Cloud in a Vault, disaster recovery is already inherent in the platform, enabling immediate access to that data.”
