AmeriVault – a recognized leader in data protection managed services, including remote online data backup, offsite recovery services, email archiving, and data lifecycle solutions – today announced that the New York Jets professional football franchise has chosen AmeriVault for remote online data backup and data protection services.
With AmeriVault, the Jets will enjoy several benefits that their previous solution – on-premise tape backup – did not offer, including automation, immediate offsite storage, and reliable recovery.
Since online backup eliminates many of the manual steps associated with tape backup, from loading tapes to offsite transportation, AmeriVault’s clients have more time for critical projects and strategic initiatives. For the Jets, the automation provided by AmeriVault’s remote online data backup service allows their IT department to focus on strategic projects such as the move to a new practice facility.
In addition, AmeriVault’s online backup service provides one-step backup and offsite data protection. A cornerstone of any Disaster Recovery Plan, offsite data storage ensures data availability in the case of a regional disaster or outage. AmeriVault’s service is a substantial improvement from an on-premise solution because there is no additional step, such as a courier service, to physically move data a safe distance away. Companies not only have to pay an additional fee for the courier service, but there is also an additional charge for storing the tapes in a safe, remote facility. With AmeriVault’s remote online backup service, data is backed-up, transported, and stored in a remote facility – all in one step, for a much lower total cost of ownership.
“With the move to the new training center, we really have a lot of work ahead of us in the IT department,” says Jets’ IT Director, Tom Murphy. “AmeriVault is helping us not only improve our data protection processes so we have more time for critical projects, but they’re also providing us with a much better solution at the same time. Our backups are faster, and lost files are restored immediately with a few clicks. But I think the most valuable benefit of AmeriVault’s service is that you get backup and DR readiness in the same solution. Now we are confident that we can recover quickly and reliably no matter what happens.”
AmeriVault provides data protection in a Storage as a Service (SaaS) model, requiring no investment in hardware, software, or maintenance. When it comes to backup, customers only pay for compressed, deduplicated data that is protected in AmeriVault’s secure, top-rated datacenters.
