Verizon and IBM have expanded their relationship to offer Managed Data Vault, a new private cloud service that provides daily backups and fast recovery of enterprise information.

The companies said that the new offering automatically transfers data from a client location to a specially designed off-site data centre via Verizon’s secure high-speed private network.

Verizon will provide its suite of private data network offerings along with data centre expertise, IT consulting services and application-aware capabilities, while IBM will supply backup infrastructure and management capabilities.

According to Verizon, the new service is suitable for financial, retail and health care services markets and to a diverse mixture of applications, databases and operating system (OS) support services. It comes with IT consulting services support to help organisations manage through this process.
