STORServer Offers FedRAMP and FIPS-Compliant Cloud Backup for Government Agencies

†The company’s data backup appliances support customers with FIPS 140-2 security requirements and can meet security controls for FedRAMP.

Note: STORServer has sent ChannelPro the following statement:†STORServer’s Tivoli Storage Manager/IBM Spectrum Protect offering is not FedRAMP-certified.† Rather, the offering resides on IBM Cloud’s FedRAMP certified IaaS cloud offering (listed as SoftLayer Federal Cloud).† This FedRAMP certification does not extend to STORServer’s offering of Tivoli Storage Manager/IBM Spectrum Protect.

STORServer, a provider of data backup solutions, is now offering FedRAMP and FIPS-compliant cloud backup for the government market.

With its cloud backup, the company aims to help government agencies eliminate their reliance on tape storage and transition to a more efficient and reliable backup solution. Instead of waiting for tapes to be picked up and taken offsite, government agencies using cloud backup can have their data automatically moved offsite when replication takes place. This means data will immediately be transferred from a user’s computing environment to a STORServer-supported, disaster-tolerant cloud environment.

STORServer’s cloud offering is designed for the long-term data retention requirements of government agencies. Additionally, rather than purchasing a mandatory minimum unit of storage hardware that must be shipped and integrated, users with STORServer’s cloud backup solution can granularly and infinitely scale their storage to meet data growth and retention.

“By utilizing cloud backup instead of tape, data backup costs can be considered an operational expenditure as opposed to a capital expenditure, which is an advantageous move for many government agencies,” explains Bill Smoldt, president and CEO of STORServer.

STORServer’s cloud backup solution†is powered by IBM Spectrum Protect, which in addition to supporting SoftLayer, also supports†Cloud Object Storage System (formerly known as Cleversafe), Amazon AWS S3, and OpenStack Swift.
