OpenText shores up Dutch DC backup to boost EU-UK regulatory compliance

Information management software vendor OpenText has been shoring up its datacentre backup and disaster recovery (DR) abilities to meet the regional regulatory requirements of SMB customers and partners.

Prentiss Donohue, executive vice president for the sales segment at OpenText, said it was addressing the complex data sovereignty issues emerging across the UK and EU by adding Carbonite support for its servers at its Netherlands datacentre.

“The regulatory landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace,” Donohue said in the company’s press announcement.

Carbonite was acquired by OpenText in 2019. Offerings include server backup and DR for business continuity and availability of applications and services affecting OpenText customers.

“OpenText is committed to expanding data center support in additional regions to help our customers address complex data sovereignty issues by uniformly ensuring compliance with government regulations,” Donohue said.

Content services sector analysis by research firm Omdia has named another OpenText company, Documentum, as a leader for its collaboration, analytics and workflow functionality.

“OpenText is a leader because it has a wide range of capabilities in all technology areas and it benefits from Magellan, its AI and analytics solution, which adds capabilities throughout the Documentum platform,” the report said — according to OpenText’s George Harot.

“Its strongest areas are document management and collaboration, content analytics, and workflow and business process management (BPM).”

The April 2021 report, Omdia Universe: Selecting a Content Services Platform Solution, 2021, underlines the value of cloud-native and hybrid cloud support for remote work, infrastructure agility and secure information access or distribution, Harot wrote.

Other vendors covered by the Omdia report as leaders in content services include IBM, Oracle, MicroFocus and Hyland Software.
