BANGALORE: Telstra Europe, an UK-based alternative business telephony and Internet suppliers, has selected

NetApp storage to support Cambridge's first Internet data center, which will provide managed storage, disaster recovery, and business continuity services to British businesses, Network Appliance, Inc., today said in a statement.

Telstra Europe is using a combination of NetApp fabric-attached storage (FAS) systems and NetApp NearStore systems for data archival, featuring NetApp RAID Double Parity (RAID-DP) for superior levels of data protection. 

The solution makes it possible for Telstra Europe to offer scalable and secure managed storage services with high resilience and performance.

The center is Telstra Europe's fifth purpose built site in the UK and builds on the success of its existing data centers in London Docklands, Birmingham, Manchester and Sunderland. The facilities at St. John's Innovation Park, Cambridge, include a telecommunications room, a test lab, and managed hosting and co-location facilities.

"With increased regulatory requirements governing data storage, including Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II, and the Data Protection Act amongst others, compliance has been propelled to the top of the board room agenda," said David Thorn, CEO of Telstra Europe.
