GRAND RAPIDS – US Signal, the Grand Rapids-based provider of connectivity and managed IT services, announced that Auburn Hills-based Continental Structural Plastics, a supplier of lightweight composite materials and molded parts for automotive and other industries, has implemented US Signal Disaster Recovery as a Service, Backup as a Service, and Enterprise Cloud services.
CSP was acquired for $825 million by Japan’s Teijin Ltd. In 2017.
US Signal uses continuous data protection to continuously replicate data to a virtual data center, and if the need arises, the company can recover its data within minutes. Since both services are managed by US Signal, CSP’s IT staff is now free to focus on other company initiatives.
Additionally, US Signal’s Enterprise Cloud includes multi-tenant and private cloud services, which are fully compliant and provide CSP with guaranteed SLAs on uptime and another level of protection. US Signal houses its cloud infrastructure in its own data centers with emergency generators, redundant HVAC, and monitored secure physical access.
“As we continue to see an increasing number of IT outages from natural disasters, cyberattacks and human error, having an effective disaster recovery plan and technology at the ready is more important than ever,” said Amanda Regnerus, executive vice president of product and services at US Signal. “Our DRaaS solution delivers organizations like CSP with near continuous block-level replication of critical workloads, and our cloud services are equipped with cutting-edge technology to guarantee data is safe and available when needed. We’re proud to partner with CSP and provide them with a complete solution to safeguard their business.”
Added Kevin Connelly, director of IT operations at CSP: “US Signal has established itself as a trusted partner to CSP. I’ve worked with many of the biggest players in the communications and IT services space, and US Signal stands out because of a level of service and support that is second to none. US Signal is always ready and willing to take our calls and provide whatever support we need, which is a level of commitment that can’t be found in many of today’s companies.”
