Cosentry is now offering its Managed Hybrid Cloud Services to Microsoft (MSFT) Azure customers.

The Omaha, Nebraska-based managed service provider (MSP) said it has extended its managed cloud services to Azure for SQL Server to provide customers “with a great option to meet their evolving disaster recovery and testing and development requirements.”

Cosentry said its managed cloud services that utilize Azure include:

  • SQL Server testing and development – Delivers quick provisioning and processing without additional hardware and software expenses

  • SQL Server backup – Expands data center capabilities via scalable Azure hybrid cloud technology

  • SQL Server disaster recovery – Helps customers meet recovery time objectives (RTO), recovery point objectives (RPO) and data sovereignty requirements.

Brad Hokamp, Cosentry’s CEO, said offering hybrid cloud support of Azure gives customers “more cost-effective options for database environments.” He also pointed out that Cosentry’s expanded managed services portfolio underscores his company’s commitment to providing customers with “more choices of industry leading solutions to solve their IT challenges.”

In addition, Cosentry continues to explore new ways to help its customers.

The data center services provider expanded its disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) offering earlier this year and acquired managed hosting and colocation provider Xiolink and managed data center provider Red Anvil last year. It also plans to support hybrid cloud users going forward.

“As our customers look to leverage a combination of hosted private cloud resources and public cloud resources, Cosentry will be well positioned to provide our full suite of managed services across these varying platforms so that our customers can take full advantage of the benefits of a hybrid cloud solution,” a Cosentry spokesperson told MSPmentor.
