GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Sept. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- US Signal, an industry-leading network and infrastructure provider, introduces Hosted Private Cloud (HPC). HPC creates a customer specific virtual environment with dedicated compute resources and flexible storage options, such as dedicated storage for Health Care, housed in US Signal's owned and operated Midwest data centers. HPC private storage offers a geographically diverse, off-site location to backup and store crucial business data. Whether for archival purposes or to restore corrupted or lost files, private storage is a key component of disaster recovery and business continuance planning.
HPC benefits any medical facility or organization that handles electronic patient health information (ePHI) which needs to meet federal guidelines for HIPAA compliance. With US Signal, the rigorous security features of HPC are augmented by their wholly-owned fiber-optic network connecting data centers throughout the Midwest. US Signal has invested substantial capital in security features and staff training to guard data where it is housed and as it traverses the network providing end-to-end safeguards against data breaches.
"A key component of HIPAA compliance is that medical facilities know where their data is located. Most of our competitors have data centers scattered across the country. Customers can be half a continent away from where their data resides," said Kirk Dombek, US Signal's vice president of business development. "Since all of our data centers are in the Midwest, our Hosted Private Cloud customers can be confident about the proximity of their data."
