San Diego, March 17, 2011 – In response to the current tragic natural disaster that has occurred in Japan, Nirvanix, the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud storage services, has announced a new program that provides its customers currently storing data in its Node 3 data center in Japan 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.
Currently all of the data in Nirvanix's Node 3 data center in Japan is secure and is approximately 200 miles away from the impacted area, and all services remain normal and available at this time. All Nirvanix carrier-class data centers are fully redundant, including redundant diesel generator power backups and full UPS redundancy 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, particularly during uncertain times such as these, Nirvanix is enabling customers to select where they would like their data to specifically reside, at no additional cost. Data relocation options outside of Japan include four additional Nirvanix data centers, including three in the U.S. (Los Angeles, New York & Dallas) and one in Frankfurt, Germany.
"Our hearts and minds are with those impacted in Japan and we are standing by ready to assist our customers during this tragic time," said Scott Genereux, President & CEO of Nirvanix. "One of the business benefits our customers have by leveraging Nirvanix cloud solutions is the ability to move data whenever they need to, across continents. Should our customers have the desire to move their data out of region, we will make sure that it is transitioned smoothly and in a timely manner, with absolutely no disruption to their business operations."
"In times like these we want to send money, aid, resources or prayers," said David Vellante, President and Co-Founder of Wikibon.org, a leading IT think tank. "This gesture by Nirvanix is business helping other businesses in a time of need, taking advantage of the global footprint of the Web and the resilient power of the cloud. It makes us begin to re-think business continuity in the 21st century."
