SAN DIEGO, Aug. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the unprecedented mandatory evacuations in New York City and the Eastern Seaboard due to the impending impact of Hurricane Irene, Nirvanix, the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud storage services, today announced a new program that enables its customers currently storing data in its Node 4 data center in New Jersey with 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.
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 customers to select where they would like their data to specifically reside, at no additional cost. Data relocation options outside of New Jersey include two data centers in the U.S. (Los Angeles & Dallas), one in Frankfurt, Germany and one in Tokyo, Japan.
"We are standing by ready to assist our customers as they face an unprecedented natural disaster which President Obama referred to as a 'historic hurricane'," said Scott Genereux, President & 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. By making the shift from the physical machine to the virtual cloud, our customers have embraced a more agile and adaptable business continuity strategy."
"For years we've been talking about anticipatory staging of data around disasters and now the cloud is the ultimate realization of that," said David Vellante, President and Co-Founder of Wikibon.org, a leading IT think tank. "The Wikibon community continues to document the business importance of the cloud and in situations such as this, having access to multiple data centers to move your data around is critical. Without the cloud, a company with a single data center would need to buy the equivalent amount of storage capacity, networking gear, servers, replication and software licenses and find another data center to power up, cool, and move all their data to. Clearly at a moment's notice the cloud provides companies with levels of flexibility that they never had available with IT before."
