Your data serves as the brain of your company. It's what powers business decisions, keeps clients informed, determines if you're growing year over year and much more. So why not care for your data in the best way possible? Housed in a managed, secured, scalable and responsive data center powered by Ricoh.

But we know, correctly storing and managing your data and applications is just one component that keeps your business up and running. So we go beyond centers to offer data management services that employ various technologies that can protect your data with backup and recovery strategies, cover day-to-day IT operations to increase system reliability and availability, help you scale as you grow, provide onsite center help when you need it and reduce your overall IT costs.


Colocation data center services: Store your data and let us manage the center


Help protect against downtime with redundant backups.

Data centers are complex and often times expensive structures to build and maintain. And chances are, although it may seem like you're drowning in data, you don't have enough of it to warrant an individual or private data center. So what do you do with all that data? The answer is colocate.

We can house your servers and data in a secured and reliable world-class Network Operation Center (NOC).

We offer multiple SSAE 18 data centers located throughout the country. Each center is fully staffed 24/7/365 by level I and level II Ricoh technicians and uses advanced technology such as biometric scanners, closed circuit cameras, on-site security, coded access, and security systems to help keep your data secured.

All of our centers are minimally rated at a Tier III level (as per The Uptime Institute classifications) and offer 99.98% availability, meaning your business is virtually always up and running even in the event of a natural disaster or office move.

With a Ricoh data center supported by a 24/7/365 NOC, you only use as much space as you need without overpaying for wasted space while having the ability to expand as your business continues to grow. You will not only save with a colocation service vs. maintaining your own center, but also turn unpredictable capital outlays into anticipated monthly expenses, resulting in better budget utilization for IT needs and ability to allocate existing resources more efficiently.

Smart Hands: Onsite expert resources when and where needed


Get data center personnel where your staff can't be.

If you're like many of today's modern companies your business runs out of one area of the country and your data is stored and managed remotely. Although most data storage work is done digitally, there are the occasional times when you need someone on site to move a cable or physically power cycle a server. Let Ricoh Smart Hands services be your eyes, ears and hands when and where you need them.

Extend your on-site IT presence by leveraging support staff to perform a number of convenient onsite services including custom installations, equipment upgrades, and equipment troubleshooting 24/7/365.

With a trained professional at your IT server site you can also be proactive about planned IT projects and equipment updates. Meaning you can run an IT update at 2:00am when your staff is off, significantly reducing the the downtime your employees and clients face.

With minimal downtime and interruptions, and trained IT staff on hand when and where you need it, you can always rely on the availability and performance of your hosted IT setup.


Business continuity services: Keep your business up and running


Be prepared for natural disasters, cyber attackers, equipment failure and more.

Malware and threats originating from malicious intent are constantly popping up in the news today and affecting major organizations around the world. Pair that with natural disasters, equipment failures and error-induced process interruptions and it may seem like your data is never safe, but we can help.

With business continuity services from Ricoh, we can devise a plan to keep your business up and running no matter what hits it takes. Instead of building and staffing your own individual data center you can store and manage your data in one of Ricoh’s Network Operation Centers (NOC) across the country.

By partnering with us you can lower your operating expenses, reduce capital expenditures and shorten the time it takes to establish a comprehensive business continuity plan.

We know that your business is unique and has its own needs, so we'll work together to create a business continuity plan built specifically for you. Many factors can influence the scope of a business continuity solution including business hours, availability needs, e-commerce strategies, data sensitivity and criticality, regulatory implications and more. These and other issues will be considered during your business assessment and recommendation process to cover each area of your business.

Let Ricoh's IT services remove the burden of monitoring and managing your data infrastructure to help give you increased reliability, reduced risk and a comprehensive business continuity plan in the event of a disaster.
