Databarracks, a UK provider of business continuity and IT disaster recovery solutions, has acquired enterprise backup services specialist 4sl.
Described by Databarracks managing director Peter Groucutt as a globally recognised leader in delivering managed Commvault services that provides a gold standard of support to customers, 4sl will expand Databarracks’ enterprise capabilities and its ability to transform legacy tape environments, he added.
“Over the past twelve months we have been transforming our core services,” Groucutt said in a statement. “We have migrated our customers’ backups and disaster recovery workloads from our data centres into Microsoft Azure, AWS and Google Cloud.”
Together with 4sl, Groucutt said Databarracks will offer modern data protection to organisations in the UK and globally, providing expertise across backup, replication, storage and cloud technologies.
Barnaby Mote, CEO and founder of 4sl said: “This is an exciting day for 4sl and Databarracks. We’re bringing together the two top data protection teams in the UK. This acquisition will bring benefits for customers of both Databarracks and 4sl. Databarracks is now the UK’s largest Commvault Managed Service Provider.”
Groucutt added: “In 2020, Business Continuity and IT Resilience were thrust into the spotlight. IT has proven to be the business-enabler through this incredibly difficult period. I think everyone now has a much greater respect for the importance of technology and our reliance upon it. Protecting data and keeping systems online are fundamental for all organisations.
“The growing cyber threat is driving organisations to revisit their resilience strategies to ensure they are protected and can recover from any incident. Backup and IT Disaster Recovery has never been more important.”
