Sponsored by Businesswire

Cobalt Iron Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based data protection, and
SCC, Europe’s largest independent IT business, today announced a
reseller partner agreement. Under the agreement, SCC will represent
Cobalt Iron’s Adaptive Data Protection (ADP) SaaS enterprise backup
solution and associated services to customers in the U.K. and Ireland as
part of its IBM business with backup and backup-as-a-service (BaaS)
offerings. The agreement gives Cobalt Iron another entrée into the U.K.
and potentially European markets while giving SCC a differentiated and
innovative backup solution to present to its IBM Spectrum Protect and
iSeries customers.

Cobalt Iron ADP modernizes backup, delivering the features and scale of
enterprise data protection along with the flexibility and economics of
cloud consumption. ADP eliminates complexity, reduces management, scales
easily from terabytes to exabytes, and provides the simplicity absent in
today’s backup technologies and tools. The industry’s first modern
approach to enterprise data protection, ADP takes full advantage of
progressive technologies such as analytics, SaaS, multicloud, and
virtualization to enable superior data protection while centralizing and
consolidating management of all systems, sites, and policies. ADP offers
fully automated data protection for every enterprise environment and
workload, from public-cloud (Amazon Web Services, Alibaba Cloud, Google
Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, and Microsoft Azure) and virtual systems to
petabyte-scale data centers.

SCC sells complementary security infrastructure solutions and services
to customers seeking data protection. SCC serves customers in finance,
insurance, the public sector, and a wide range of other markets and
manages IT for organizations the world over, including for many users of
IBM iSeries storage servers. The fact that SCC manages a sizeable
portfolio of IBM Spectrum Protect installations with IBM U.K. and
Ireland makes it a good fit for Cobalt Iron, which has a strong base of
iSeries users and is an IBM-certified platform partner.
