SUNNYVALE, Calif. – October 15, 2013 — / — today announced that Vizant Technologies, headquartered near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has deployed’s enterprise cloud backup solution to achieve twice the data transfer rate at half the price. Vizant Technologies is an independent payments industry consultancy and advisory firm that analyzes payment card transaction data.

Founded in 2000, Vizant turned to Zetta’s DataProtect online server backup to secure its fast-growing data, which had expanded to around one terabyte from client files that were retained and archived for up to seven years. Kevin Davis, Network Engineer at Vizant, estimates that the company is likely to have 50 to 100 percent more data within the span of a year. Vizant’s IT infrastructure includes systems at its data center in Spokane, Washington, and at its headquarters.

“Each month, Vizant receives transaction data interchange statements to process and analyze in order to provide money-saving advice for its clients worldwide,” explained Davis. “The statements can be hundreds of thousands of pages long and are often rife with errors. If Vizant lost any data sent by its clients, it could take weeks to get it back again. Any time delay is literally money lost,” said Davis. “So we care about having backups, in case there’s a problem with our storage or sites.”

Previously, Vizant had managed offsite server backup by using a rotating set of external hard drives, then moved to a cloud server backup service in 2009 to protect its critical business data. But the company soon realized its network connection wasn’t big enough to support such extensive backups. At that point, Vizant began using DataProtect in January 2013.

“As part of the benchmarking, we found we were getting twice the data transfer rate at half the price,” said Davis. “And offers security that meets our requirements and industry standards.”

Vizant plans to leverage other capabilities using DataProtect as well, such as taking advantage of’s upcoming Exchange plug-in to do block-level database backups. The company is also investigating using Zetta to handle local backups, and has been testing Zetta 4.0 beta, which will allow Vizant to do both offsite and local backups in a single step.
