7. An outsourcing company that provides storage space and related management duties

Answer: Storage service provider

On the Internet, a storage service provider (SSP) is a company that provides computer storage space and related management to other companies. In addition to the storage itself, SSPs typically offer periodic backup and archiving and some offer the ability to consolidate data from multiple company locations so that all locations can share the data effectively. Customers may be billed a monthly rate and for each managed terabyte of storage. Some companies specialize in providing limited storage service, such as periodic remote backup, to individual computer users and small businesses.
