Today AT&T announced its new Storage as a Service system which will allow small business owners to store, distribute and retrieve data from anywhere with a web connection.

The company says the new service, which is being called AT&T Synaptic Storage, will maintain information "in the cloud" for access through the web. Roman Pacewicz, senior vice president of strategy and application services for AT&T Business Solutions, says this may be good news for businesses looking for constant access.

"The demand for data storage continues to grow at a staggering rate, driven by companies' need for 24x7 access to business critical data," he said. "AT&T Synaptic Storage helps enterprises get a handle on these increasingly complex storage environments, while controlling costs and improving service levels."

AT&T will begin rolling out the service on a limited basis later this month and says the storage service will be available on a larger scale in the third quarter.
