SAN DIEGO, Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In anticipation of the so-called "Frankenstorm," a combination of Hurricane Sandy and a winter storm, expected to hit the Eastern Seaboard with a potential of causing a billion dollars in damage, Nirvanix today announced that it is activating its Disaster Avoidance Program for customers currently storing data in its Node 4 data center in New Jersey enabling them to exercise the option of moving their data to other locations in the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network™—either on a temporary or full-time basis—free of charge.
Currently all of the data in Nirvanix's Node 4 data center in New Jersey is secure and all services remain normal and available. All Nirvanix carrier-class data centers are fully redundant, including diesel generator power backups and UPS to maintain full power at all times—even during rolling blackout periods—to ensure the company's data centers are running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
However, for those customers seeking extra peace of mind, Nirvanix is enabling them to select where they would like their data to specifically reside, at no additional cost. Data relocation options outside of New Jersey include data centers in the U.S. (Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas), Frankfurt, Germany and Tokyo, Japan.
"During this natural disaster Nirvanix is proactively taking action to assist our customers without charge," said Scott Genereux, President and CEO of Nirvanix. "By storing their data in the Nirvanix cloud, customers benefit from the transparent movement of data from one region to another with no impact to their business operations. Leveraging Nirvanix's patented live replicas technology, customers can maintain continuous data access at all times."
"The business importance of the cloud becomes even more prevalent during megastorms such as Hurricane Sandy," said Marc Staimer, President of Dragonslayer Consulting, a leading IT consultancy. "The cloud is not confined to a box and not limited to a single geo location. The cloud is a business continuity solution that transcends the barriers of physical machines by making resources available across a virtual global grid, enabling customers to protect and access their data during a time of need."
