Cloud-Based Virtualization Provider Venyu Reports Strong 2012 Performance

Business continuity, cloud-based virtualization and data recovery solutions provider, Venyu, has shown a strong performance in 2012. Adding three top sports franchises to its customer portfolio last year, the provider also rolled out its new VMware vCloud-powered service.

Venyu strives to ensure customer data is always available and recoverable through its three primary solutions. Offerings range from cloud hosting to backup, and the VenyuCloud is a secure and controlled platform for easily provisioning cloud servers on demand.

Additional offerings include managed and colocation hosted solutions designed to drive customer profitability through redundant, commercial-grade data centers. Venyu also offers the RestartIT solution for rapid data recovery in the event of a disaster or outage.

The company's strong 2012 performance was closely tied to naming the Dallas Cowboys, Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Hornets as customers.

The Cowboys rolled out a Venyu-based cloud IT disaster recovery solution for the backup of football and business information, and the Falcons established a Venyu-powered system to recover a variety of pieces of data, including ticketing, coaching and PoS operations.

The Hornets set up a Venyu-created replicated hotspot to ensure their data is protected.

Additional customers coming on board in 2012 included Habitat for Humanity, Bowman Systems and the Louisiana Technology Park – all of which are using Venyu's redundant, commercial-grade data centers and the RestartIT data recovery platform.

Offering the VMware-powered VenyuCloud solution as a vCloud-based service was another notable highlight last year. The offering gives customers a low-cost and easily deployed alternative to physical servers, and IT managers may quickly provision cloud servers and data centers on demand using the solution.

"At Venyu, we're committed to making data secure and reliable at cost-effective price points," said Scott Thompson, Venyu CEO. "It's this commitment that drove such tremendous results during the year. Now more than ever, companies count on the power of Venyu to reduce IT costs while heightening the security and scalability of their critical data centers."

"While we made big strides this past year, 2013 will prove to be even better," added Thompson. "Looking ahead, we're not only adding load balancing and service insertion into our cloud-hosting platform -- but also an enhanced customer-facing management portal. Combine this with the roll-out of an entirely new cloud suite for end-user computing, and it's easy to see why Venyu is a company to watch in 2013."
