|Includes: Data Storage Corp. (DTST)

Data Storage, a company engaged in cloud storage and cloud computing, today announced it has signed a master distributor agreement with Fortress Data Management in a strategy to expand its service offerings throughout the Midwest region.

Per the agreement, Data Storage will provide Fortress's backup and recovery customers with customer services for IBM iSeries/AS400 server environments. Data Storage also will provide marketing and sales support services, such as online marketing and co-branded participation in industry events.

Fortress focuses on data management, compliance, security, and business continuity plan development and consulting. Fortress Data Management serves institutions and professional clients in the construction, healthcare, and finance industries.

As part of distributor agreement, the companies will focus on meeting demand for cloud/datacenter-delivered services, a market that some industry experts predict will top $73 billion by 2015.

"Fortress and its founder, John Connell, clearly understand the value businesses in highly regulated industries place in protecting their data. Through this partnership, we will be able to expand our presence in the Midwest and be able to provide customers in that market with the high level of consultation and support customers have come to expect from Data Storage Corporation," Matthew Grosso, executive vice president and CTO at Data Storage stated in the press release.
