BATON ROUGE, LA, Jan 12, 2012 –/– Venyu today announced that the Dallas Cowboys have implemented a new cloud-based, IT disaster recovery solution for reliable backup of all business data as well as crucial game and training video footage. The NFL team selected RestartIT as an effortless and accurate approach to data backup and recovery that uses industry-leading deduplication and cloud storage technology to store its digital files, and quickly retrieve them if the primary storage servers are offline due to manmade or natural disasters.

After making a significant technology investment over several years at Cowboys Stadium to give the fans a modern, interactive media experience, the Dallas Cowboys IT team decided it was time to also upgrade its methods of protecting and storing data and files. “We grew increasingly frustrated by the numerous hours of maintenance required by our archaic data tape backup system, which simply didn’t offer the modern features and reliability to support our new virtualized data center,” said Bill Haggard, Director – Enterprise Infrastructure, Dallas Cowboys.

To alleviate the problem, the IT staff decided that an overall data protection and backup strategy was needed to protect the organization’s IT capital as well as backup hundreds of hours of voice, data and video footage for the team management and players. Rather than spending additional time and resources on building an in-house solution, the Cowboys turned to Venyu for assistance.

“Losing data can be a major setback, and if there are no other copies available — you’re in serious trouble,” continued Dallas Cowboys’ Bill Haggard. “Venyu’s RestartIT transformed the way my IT team approaches data protection. We now have a cloud-based backup plan that rises to the level of our existing technology investments.”

Venyu’s RestartIT is built on Recovery Time Objective (RTO) metrics, or the measurement of time between an outage and the moment that data is available again. In addition, the solution combines DR-Grade, online backup with the VMware®-virtualized recovery platform to provide seamless system recovery when organizations need it most.

“We’re proud to be the Dallas Cowboys’ disaster recovery and data backup partner, helping their IT team with the documentation and business continuity they need to build a modern, highly reliable data protection plan,” said Scott Thompson, Venyu CEO.
