• Data Backup

    All backup solutions seek to preserve data for the long haul. The key differentiator is the usability of your data when you need it. And the worst time to discover your data backup solution hasn’t been capturing your mission critical information is when you need it the most.

    For 50 years, organizations have relied on various evolutions of tape backup. It would seem the product would work reliably after half a century, but as industry analysts and IT professionals have discovered time after time, tape as a primary means of data backup does not offer encouraging statistics:

    • Restoring from tape fails 50% of the time in distributed organizations and mid-sized companies.” – Baroudi Bloor (www.hurwitz.com) (now Hurwitz and Associates)
    • Over 34% of companies do not test their backups and of those that tested, 77% found their tape backups failed to restore.” – Storage Magazine
    • A survey by the Yankee Group and Sunbelt Software found that 40% of IT managers had been unable to recover data from a tape when they needed it.

    Texas DataVault’s array of data backup solutions leverage disk-based technology. By using disks, organizations avoid the hassles associated with tape.

    • No costly media to purchase, rotate, and store
    • No need for outsourced archival services
    • No need for time-consuming restore testing

    Most importantly, Texas DataVault provides usable information when you need it. Whether you need to restore an individual email or an entire machine, Texas DataVault’s data backup solutions capture information in a usable, meaningful format. Your data is available 24 × 7 × 365 and can be immediately restored to fully functional levels in seconds, not hours, days, or weeks.

    Disk-based data backup works in a non-linear fashion. With tape, data is written linearly across the tape from start to finish. The difference means the ability to access information immediately via a very intuitive user interface-just as you would on a local machine-versus identifying the correct tape containing the data needed, queuing it up, and hoping the data is readable and restorable.

    If your organization houses parts or all of its enterprise in a collocated facility, Texas DataVault’s data backup solutions make even more sense. Most collocation facilities offer some form of “eyes and hands” service if an organization’s employee is unable to physically interact with a server. This means entrusting a third party to manage tape rotations correctly, and in the event of a restore scenario, they must pull the desired tape and have a strong degree of familiarity with your specific software.

    Texas DataVault provides full remote capabilities that require no physical interaction with a server. Data can be pushed from our redundant data centers to your server collocation facilities seamlessly. You minimize collocation costs while gaining further control over your enterprise, regardless of whether its housed on-site or miles away.

    If your current data backup solution is placing undue burden on your stretched IT organization, call Texas DataVault today. We can help identify greater efficiencies at a time when maximizing your resources is more important than ever.
