Data Storage

Premier access to our state-of-the-art datacentres combined with our vast experience as a hosting and managed services provider.

Experts in Data Storage

Wi-Manx is the only Isle of Man supplier that offers a full suite of voice, hosting, internet, datacentre and connectivity solutions for businesses.

Founded in 2004, Wi-Manx has since grown to provide services to a truly global customer base. We provide a reliable service to over 2,700 customers across B2B and B2C markets, and pride ourselves on our unique solutions and first-class support.

By organising storage resources in an independent, high-performance network, our high-speed Storage Area Network (SAN) gives you resilience, centralised management, centralised backup, disaster recovery, duplication and increased disk utilisation.

Shared San storage with Wi-Manx

Shared SAN Storage

Shared SAN storage at Wi-Manx can be presented as either as iSCSI, NFS or SMB, and delivered over a 1GE port.

We provide on-site SAN storage, a combination of on-site and off-site replication or off-site only. Our hosting technicians will install the relevant cabling to your equipment, provisioned on a 1GE port.

We will also provide your business with the expert guidance and help required for the setup and configuration of the storage you need. The traffic on the 1GE storage port isn’t counted against your internet-facing connectivity.

SAN to SAN Replication

As part of your business continuity and disaster recovery plan, Wi-Manx enables your business to clone or mirror your existing SAN systems. This replica system is securely stored within our superior datacentres. Your SAN and the replica SAN will remain synchronised which means if disaster strikes, you can be safe in the knowledge that you have an identical backup.

Features of offsite SAN to SAN replication:

  • Private MPLS connection to your existing SAN (either in a data centre or your premises)
  • Housing your Replica SAN in our premier Isle of Man data centre facility

Archiving and Backup

Archiving, backing up or replicating your data off site is an integral part of many disaster recovery or business continuity plans, and is often required from a compliance perspective.

Wi-Manx provides a safe and secure centre to cater for any size of business and their requirements. Our datacentres provide advanced systems to keep your data completely protected at all times.

Our offshore datacentre is also the ideal location for data replication, archiving and storage, and is a well-respected and trusted destination for digital data, compliant with the European Data Protection Law.

SAN Replica Hosting

Wi-Manx can house your replica SAN in our secure datacentre environment. There are two key components to your hosted SAN solution:

Colocation- Your business can house its SAN in our datacentre. We can accommodate systems ranging from single U to multi-rack SAN systems. Flexible cooling and power options are also available.

MPLS VPN- In order to connect your data securely to your replica, you will need a private link. This could be in the form of a secure VPN connectivity or, alternatively, a dedicated, private MPLS link. Both solutions would provide you with a private link between your SAN and the hosted replica.
