Cloudworks (http://www.cloudworks.com), one of the first companies to provide services in the cloud, has announced the launch of two new data centers in Arizona and Maryland, through its recent partnership with Ongoing Operations, that provide cloud-based IT solutions aimed at the financial services industry. The data centers also provide expanded redundancy and disaster recovery for the company’s services in all industries.
“The financial services industry has approached the cloud computing revolution cautiously because of its strict regulatory and security standards and unparalleled billions of dollars in transactions, but that is now changing because of advances Cloudworks is helping drive in partnership with a leading industry provider,” said Mike Eaton, CEO and founder of Cloudworks, which has been in the information technology business for 14 years and has provided services in the cloud since 2006. “By meeting and exceeding this risk-averse industry’s security and compliance requirements, we are able to overcome any regulatory hurdles and enable the financial services industry to capitalize on all the benefits the cloud offers.”
This is the second major announcement from Cloudworks targeted at the financial services industry.

The partnership provides credit unions a new suite of IT offerings designed to reduce total ownership costs, offer built-in back-up, and shift large capital expenditures to predictable monthly service fees.
The Arizona data center is already online, and the Maryland center will launch in the second quarter.
