Englewood, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – November 30, 2005 – Managed hosting company, Verio, has expanded its data
protection and managed storage service offerings through a partnership with
Arsenal Digital Solutions, to deliver a range of storage and data
protection solutions to midsize and small businesses.
Building on its existing relationship with Arsenal, a global provider of storage management solutions, Verio has focused on the creation and delivery of cost-effective solutions for on- and off-site storage management and data protection.
According to Bill Jolly, Director of Product Management for Verio, ”Businesses today face a range of regulatory and compliance requirements for data protection, retention and accessibility. Data backup and recovery has critical impact to operations for businesses of all sizes, and any data loss or downtime has shown to have significant potential impact to an organization. With the expansion of our managed storage options from Arsenal, Verio continues to help businesses drive down storage costs while ensuring data availability with easier management, increased efficiencies and guaranteed performance.”
Businesses such as Biscayne Aquaculture, a Verio customer based in Florida, have taken advantage of Verio’s backup services to ensure their data is protected and accessible, including during natural disasters. Industry studies show that although data loss can have extensive business impact, two-thirds of companies today say their data backup and disaster recovery plans have significant vulnerabilities. Additional research notes that only a fraction of companies – six percent – that suffer a catastrophic data loss will survive beyond two years.
Sam Sigarto, chief operating officer for Arsenal Digital Solutions commented, ”Organizations of every size and industry – from banks to hospitals to insurers – are being forced to re-examine their data protection processes not only as a fail-safe against human error and disaster, but also to meet regulatory requirements for data security, accessibility and chain-of-custody. We look forward to working with Verio to offer the most reliable solutions for meeting these data protection mandates – regardless where data resides – quickly, cost-effectively and worry-free.”
Verio’s managed storage and data protection services include:
Remote Data Backup and Restore: This off-site managed data protection service automates the backup and restoration of business data over a client’s existing IP network. The service has been optimized to ensure the backups are quickly completed in minutes, thereby minimizing network overhead, server impact and time and resources. Verio’s network-based Remote Backup ensures companies can safeguard their data from outside threats, human error or natural disasters that can create widespread data loss and downtime for a business. The service includes support for all major operating systems, servers, PCs and laptops.
Data Center Backup and Restore: Three levels of this fully managed server backup and restore service are offered from Verio premier data centers to meet companies’ specific needs for backup frequency, data volume and retention periods. Verio’s data backup customers can also take advantage of Verio’s Offsite Vaulting services to ensure additional data protection. The service includes tape media, pickup and offsite storage to retain the data for periods specified by the customer.
Managed Storage Area Network Solutions: Verio’s SAN service is designed for customers who need the benefits and performance of an enterprise-class solution without the cost and complexity associated with a full enterprise-class implementation.

Database Backup: Verio offers two database backup service options, including offline and online, which offer varying levels of accessibility and performance impact. Offline backup services offer a ‘cold’ backup, as the database cannot be accessed during the process, while Online Database Backup services offer real-time data backups for Microsoft databases and warm backup options for other database platforms. Real-time backups ensure that the database is accessible throughout the backup with minimal performance impact.
