Nigel Hoggart, Business Development at ADAM explains: "Increasing demand for our Cloud Backup & Recovery, Replication for Recovery and NetApp Replication solutions, all of which move the responsibility for recovery from the client to us as service provider, has led to our development of a range of fully managed IT Services.

Datum's FRN offers us enhanced security and resilience in both communications and power in an environmentally efficient facility in a great location."

Good partnerships are based on the strength of the working relationship that is established."
