Owning and maintaining business critical servers, applications, and data on-site incurs unwarranted risk and requires a substantial investment in secure physical space, uninterruptable power systems, generator backup, air conditioning and fire protection – not to mention trained staff to provide technical support.

Data centers work like an extension of your own building without the risks inherent in on-site data rooms or closets. Our primary state-of-the-art data center is located safely outside the primary business district in Pittsburgh, PA, with backup locations in Montana and Ohio, ideal for data security.

Your company’s data is one of its most valuable assets, which is why you should take every measure possible to ensure it’s secure and that it would survive a disaster. Any seasoned computer technician will tell you there are two types of hard drives – those that have failed and those that will fail. The only question is when.

We Provide Unrivaled Peace of Mind

Ascent Data’s Backup & Disaster Recovery services offer you security and coverage. All data that we store is continuously archived, redundant, and ready to restore, even after a major disaster.
We understand that your data is the culmination of your entire staff’s work over the years and is essential to the functioning and success of your business. So, we make it our business to ensure your data is safe and always readably available to maximize productivity.


Targeting efficiency as a core objective across the IT infrastructure helps organizations enhance business agility, foster innovation and accommodate growth, all while controlling costs. Given the increasing volume, velocity and value of data, establishing an effective data management strategy must be a component of that approach. Data Storage Solutions (DSS), which integrate capabilities for automation, optimization, scalability and protection, can help your organization build a next-generation storage infrastructure that will serve as a foundation for an agile and efficient enterprise.

Reduce costs by 50% or more by…

  • Dynamically migrating data to the most appropriate disks
  • Optimizing current storage by removing unused disk space
  • Reducing your storage footprint through deduplication
  • Using fewer drives with RAID-DP


Avoid additional capacity and future operating costs by…

  • Reducing your application development and test costs
  • Cutting required storage at the replication target
  • Buying less disk, reducing power, cooling and floor space


Housing your own IT infrastructure can be a headache and risky. It’s extremely expensive and time intensive to build and then ensure your site and systems are securely protected and properly maintained. This is why many companies choose to invest in colocation, locating their company’s servers at a dedicated, offsite data center.

Ascent Data’s colocation facility boasts industry-standard security and infrastructure, and provides the most optimal physical space and temperature requirements. With our colocation offering, your company will use its own server on our reliable, redundant, high-speed network. We offer options for colocation that allow you to take advantage of our infrastructure, security and personnel: managed and non-managed.

Features of Ascent Data’s colocation facility and solution:

  • Multiple fiber-optic carriers and upstream Tier 1 Internet backbone
  • Carrier neutral with resilient connections to multiple providers
  • Redundant network components for ISP and network connectivity
  • Multiple fiber-based and traditional TDM or copper-based carrier service providers
  • Highly skilled engineer and technical support available 24x7x365
  • Redundant HVAC systems that maintain consistent humidity and temperature
  • State-of-the-art monitoring and management systems
  • Redundant diesel-powered generators
  • Fire protection
  • Located just outside of the city

Recovery Cloud DR

Cloud Computing can be an important foundation to a rapid recovery, low data loss DR solution. Regularly synchronizing production environments with Ascent2Cloud allows for rapid recovery into the cloud in the event of a disaster or data loss.

SOC 2 Audited

Ascent Data’s clients expect superior service and security levels. Ascent Data has been through an in-depth review of its information technology systems, processes, policies, personnel, procedures and controls. The successful completion of the SOC 2 audit allows Ascent Data to provide its clients with piece-of-mind in knowing their data is secure in our Pittsburgh data center.



Ascent Data takes reliability seriously. Our SLA100 provides for payment of aggressive penalties if we fail to provide power and bandwidth for colocation and managed services at 100 percent of scheduled monthly availability.


The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1996 to ensure the privacy of patients’ medical records. HIPAA is concerned with administration, privacy, and security. In order to keep patients’ medical information private, HIPAA has established transaction, security and privacy standards for management of  individually identifiable health information. Ascent Data colocation helps reduce the time and expense companies incur as they work to comply with HIPAA.


Ascent Data implements strong access control measures and regularly monitors and tests networks.  Clients with PCI compliance requirements trust Ascent to assist in protecting cardholder data.
