DataBank announces the launch of its next generation CloudPlus® service, CP5, an advanced high-performance computing and storage platform designed from the ground up with security and compliance. Deployed inside DataBank data centers, CP5 allows enterprise customers to easily integrate their colocation assets and workloads into a true hybrid solution.

“CP5 was built to satisfy the current market demand for hybrid cloud,” commented Vlad Friedman, CTO at DataBank. “With CP5, we are well positioned to provide the most complete solution on the market by combining colocation, private infrastructure, public cloud and cloud on-ramps.”

The platform is supported by 24/7 security, operations and managed services teams and provides transparency via a Databank’s analytics portal. With security at its core, CP5 options include FIPS140-2 Encrypted Storage, IDS/IPS, Web Application Firewalls, Vulnerability Scanning, Log Offload, VPN Firewalls, Multifactor Authentication along with multiple additional security focused features to enable compliance including FedRAMP, HIPAA, PCI, SSAE 18, SOX, GDPR, ITAR, and NIST 800-53.

CP5 can be consumed either as IaaS or with our proactive managed services (PaaS), which unburden IT teams from the day-to-day operations of maintaining, patching and securing their environment. CP5 is available in DataBank’s Dallas and Kansas City metro areas with plans for expansion into other DataBank markets later this year.
