(The Hosting News) – Carpathia Hosting, the leading provider of enterprise managed hosting services for government agencies and businesses, announced today that Saba, the premier provider of people systems, has chosen Carpathia as a strategic cloud infrastructure partner, supporting US, Canadian and EMEA operations. The partnership will allow Saba to meet the strict federal compliance requirements demanded by its public sectors and commercial customers.
As Saba’s Software-as-a-Service, “SaaS” solutions continue to grow and adoption totals to more than 4 million users worldwide, the company required a way to better support the data privacy requirements from its customer base in both EMEA and Canada. Because Canadian and EU data privacy laws and practices require companies to keep their data in-country, Saba chose Carpathia’s international facilities to provide EU and in-country SaaS access to Saba People Systems.
“We’ve been very pleased with Carpathia’s understanding of our global compliance requirements and commitment to meeting the needs of our customers, many of whom are operating in a highly regulated environment,” said Ronno Lee, vice president of Saba Cloud. “It was strategic for us to choose Carpathia as we expanded the Saba Cloud globally.”
In the EU, Saba chose Carpathia’s secure and compliant Amsterdam Data Center to store all data and systems for Saba’s EU SaaS customers. More recently, Saba announced the availability of in-country SaaS people systems solutions in Canada, hosting its data in Carpathia’s Toronto facility.
Through Carpathia, Saba is uniquely positioned as a data custodian, serving Canadian customers where strict privacy laws, including the 1980 Privacy Act, dictate careful treatment of customer data. The same holds true for Saba’s customers in the EU, where Safe Harbor compliance is a requirement. Carpathia expanded its data center footprint into the EU market for Saba Cloud deployments there.
“Saba has been a long-time customer of ours, and we are pleased to be able to support their continued growth as they migrate all of their infrastructure into our facilities around the globe,” said Peter Weber, CEO of Carpathia Hosting. “Carpathia is well-positioned to continue delivering, protecting and defending Saba’s data in a manner that is fully compliant with all applicable standards.”
Since 2007, Carpathia has assisted Saba in providing global 24x7x365 monitoring and support, comprehensive Saba application management services and scalable SaaS solutions from Carpathia’s state-of-the art data centers around the world. Through Carpathia, Saba’s infrastructure is capable of delivering FISMA, DIACAP and HIPAA compliant services to meet the stringent security standards required by many federal agencies and commercial customers. Carpathia has obtained both SAS70 Type II and Safe Harbor compliance in its Vault, Toronto and Amsterdam data centers.
