Revinetix, a pioneer in Disk2Disk2Disk(TM) data protection solutions, today announced the Unified Fire Authority (UFA) has deployed Revinetix Sentio(TM) data protection appliances to archive emergency call, e-mail, payroll, and accounts payable/receivable data.

    Serving Utah's Salt Lake County, UFA provides fire protection, medical, emergency and rescue services to nearly 1 million citizens living in Utah's Salt Lake County.

UFA has experienced an increase in data in step with the rapid population growth in Salt Lake County, resulting in an associated increase for UFA's fire and emergency services. For years, UFA used tape backups for its data archiving processes. The critical data was backed up on a nightly basis, then stored in a secure location.

After years of "getting by" with tape backups, the Unified Fire Authority was ready for a solution with greater capacity, higher reliability, less hassle, and easier access to archived data. Today, UFA has the data protection solution they need. Revinetix' Value-Added Reseller (VAR) Valcom recommended Revinetix Sentio(TM) data protection appliances to UFA.

"I have never been completely confident that a tape storage system would truly provide a reliable and accessible archive of our data," said Tom Ream, Network Administrator at the Unified Fire Authority.

Revinetix' line of Sentio appliances uniquely meet the needs of organizations like UFA through innovative software (RevOS(TM)) - fully integrated with best-of-class hardware and Disk2Disk2Disk(TM) technology. The result is a turn-key appliance that comes installed, configured and ready for easy and seamless deployment within an existing IT infrastructure. Backups are fully automated, restores are quick and reliable, and archive drives are hot-swappable, enabling removal and offsite storage.

"The transition from tapes to disks was really smooth," said Ream. "Revinetix came and installed the product, conducted a brief training and we were up and running."

Now, UFA's backups run automatically and the time-consuming task of replacing tapes has been eliminated. In addition, UFA's IT staff can access and manage data via any browser on the LAN/WAN. All data is archived automatically at the end of each month and the archive disk is removed and stored in a secure location to ensure complete recovery in the event of a disaster.

Each Revinetix appliance is powered by Revinetix' own operating system, RevOS(TM). Through a simple to use browser-based interface, Ream can manage and automate backup and recovery functions and maintain a running catalog of all files that have been saved on the appliance. When the time comes to retrieve vital information, all that's needed is a simple point and click to find the needed file or directory.

"I trust Revinetix and its disk backup systems," said Ream. "Side-by-side comparisons of other products in the market proved that Revinetix delivered more capabilities at a more competitive and affordable price point."

"UFA has a clearly defined, forward-thinking view of how backup solutions can help streamline the administrative activities and business processes that their organization depends upon," said Thomas Hogan, President of Revinetix. "It is rewarding to have UFA place its confidence in us and our solutions. We look forward to supporting the UFA and the important work they provide to the residents of Salt Lake County."
