Jersey City, NJ, July 10, 2014 — Datapipe, a global provider of managed hosting and cloud services, today announced the expansion of its Managed Cloud for Amazon Web Services (AWS). The enhanced solutions focus on three key areas of concern regarding enterprise public cloud adoption – security and risk management, optimizing the usage and accounting of highly elastic, distributed resources, and the implementation of hybrid IT solutions.

As the global leader in managed cloud services for AWS, Datapipe is providing end-to-end solutions that build on its deep understanding of AWS environments. Datapipe’s own network of data centers provides a highly secure foundation for hybrid IT solutions delivered in combination with AWS. With these enhanced solutions, Datapipe customers can effectively integrate AWS into their managed private cloud and traditional IT environments.

Tailoring cloud deployments to specific customer needs, Datapipe continues to provide new, enriched cloud capabilities for mission critical and day-to-day enterprise operations. Specific enhancements to Datapipe’s Managed Cloud for AWS offerings include the following:

Enterprise cloud security and risk management:

  • High performance database services allow for the development and management of hybrid connectivity between physical databases and AWS cloud services
  • Offsite data backup and disaster recovery provides an alternative environment and ensures that the required database resources will be available 24x7x365
