VENYU TAKES CLOUD LEADERSHIP TO NEW HEIGHTS IN 2013

New Data Center Facilities, Enhanced Cloud Services and

Leading Partnerships Capture Market Share

BATON ROUGE, La. – Further elevating its leadership in business continuity, cloud-based virtualization, and battle-tested data recovery, Venyu today announced a strong finish to FY2013. The notable results underscore the company’s value as a proven leader in cloud-based services as well as its ability to cost-effectively secure and protect mission-critical data.

In September, Venyu announced its acquisition by EATEL, a leading regional telecommunications service provider.  The agreement provides access to new growth opportunities and resources, while strengthening complementary service lines with integrated business solutions.  As a wholly-owned subsidiary of EATEL, Venyu is now focused on accelerating company growth beyond its regional service areas and into new markets.

The company also broke ground on its data center expansion in Baton Rouge, LA in 2013. The new data center will open in April 2014.  Highlighting an ability to provide quality, secure cloud-based services, the data center is designed to guarantee the highest levels of security, uptime, connectivity, and redundancy.  The footprint features fully redundant power distribution, climate control, and fire suppression – with an enhanced emphasis on power density and management. 

“Whether we’re offering cloud hosting, backup, or colocation, companies rely on Venyu as a strategic business partner to help protect their digital assets and cost-effectively augment their IT services,” said Scott Thompson, CEO of Venyu.  “As the demand for more value-added cloud services continues to increase, we will meet these challenges by expanding our offerings with leading applications supported by the industry’s best customer service and support teams.”

Additionally, Venyu’s agreement with Alert Logic now provides access to superior data protection through full integration of intrusion detection and log management.  The partnership is the foundation for Venyu’s Web Security Manager (WSM) – an enhanced layer of security, blocking suspicious traffic at the firewall and appliance level, and protecting web servers from attack without compromising availability.

Venyu also partnered with CMA Technology Solutions in an effort to support joint customers using IBM System i Power Servers.  With the CMA Series I technology infrastructure – a new resource placing IBM servers within Venyu’s data centers – legacy users can now harness Venyu’s RestartIT® cloud-based backup and recovery services.  Spotlighting several 2013 successes, Venyu partnered with Coretelligent to bring data backup services to venture capital investment firms in New England and to California’s Bay area and provided Baton Rouge-based Woman’s Hospital – one of the nation’s first specialty hospitals recognized for superior care of women and infants - with disaster recovery services. 

Rounding out the year, the Louisiana-based business collected high marks from the industry with a range of accolades, including:
