AmeriVault turning SMBs "green"

AmeriVault, a leading provider of online data backup, offsite storage, and recovery services, today is offering small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) data backup options for “green data storage” practices that support broader “green” programs and initiatives.

Organizations of all sizes are generating significant amounts of data, resulting in an ever-increasing data footprint. With the recent focus surrounding “green” awareness, many companies are now seeking solutions to reduce the environmental impact of their operations and storage practices.

Online data backup and storage can provide a “green” alternative for many who are currently using tape-based backup solutions. Those using tape-based systems increase their carbon footprint as a result of the manufacturing, packaging, power consumption and waste issues that tapes incur as they wear out and require disposal. Online data backup and storage also eradicates the need for trucking services that contribute large amounts of CO2 emissions with daily burning of fuel and the resulting exhaust as they make dozens of stops to pickup and deliver tapes.

“When businesses think of ‘green’ data storage strategies they inevitably link it with data center power consumption and kilowatts,” stated Bud Stoddard, President & CEO of AmeriVault. “However, we believe the issue goes far beyond just power. Corporations need to take a good look at their data storage practices as the majority are needlessly storing terabytes of older, less accessed data on production servers, which negatively impedes ‘green’ efforts, leading to wasted energy and dollars.”
