Customers Using Nirvanix’s Dallas Data Center Can Opt to Move Data Across the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network for Free to the West Coast, Europe or Asia for Increased Data Protection

SAN DIEGO, April 3, 2012 –/– In response to the severe damage caused by tornadoes touching down in the Dallas area, Nirvanix, the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud storage services, today announced that it is expanding its Disaster Avoidance Program to customers currently storing data in its Node 3 data center in Dallas enabling them to exercise the option of moving their data to other locations in the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network(TM) — either on a temporary or full-time basis–free of charge.

Currently all of the data in Nirvanix’s Node 5 data center in Dallas is secure and all services remain normal and available at this time. 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 Dallas include two data centers in the U.S. (Los Angeles and New Jersey), one in Frankfurt, Germany, two in Switzerland, and one in Tokyo, Japan with Las Vegas and Hawaii nodes available in the near future.

“We are standing by ready to assist our customers as they face a series of damaging tornadoes,” 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. By making the shift from the physical machine to the virtual cloud, our customers have embraced a more agile and adaptable business continuity strategy.”

“Tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis, floods and fires–for years we’ve been talking about anticipatory staging of data around disasters and the cloud is the ultimate realization of that vision,” said David Vellante, President and Co-Founder of, a leading IT think tank. “The Wikibon community continues to document the business importance of the cloud and in tragic situations such as this, having access to data in multiple locations 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 which needs to be powered up, cooled, and have data migrated to it. Clearly at a moment’s notice the cloud, if architected properly, provides companies with levels of flexibility that they never had available with IT before.”
