Cloud storage and automated backup provider Sterling Data Storage, which is carving out a niche in the Web hosting sector, on Jan. 14 launched three new cloud backup services for small and midsize enterprises in that burgeoning market.

Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Sterling makes software-as-a-service-based (SaaS-based) backup and disaster recovery software for Windows, Linux and iOS systems.

Data and file backup and disaster recovery are requisite value-added services for Web hosting companies to provide for their customers for security purposes and for compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley and American Bar Association standards.

“Even though cloud backup has seen slower adoption rates for small to medium-size corporations, new affordable technology and advances in cloud computing appliances have shown increased adoption rates among IT service providers and businesses required to meet compliance and regulatory requirements,” said Sterling CEO Jim Morand. “The increased economies of scale, better control, increased security, expanding backup options and minimized cost structures have made cloud backup solutions an increasingly reliable and accepted technology for business data storage.”
