While it doesn’t happen everyday, it does happen. And when it does – you better be ready…

Truly this is the Black Swan effect in action. It’s the reason we have life insurance, and send our data to tapes, as well as replicate your data across town, the country, or the globe.

Salvus Data Consultants has worked on numerous accounts who have switched to tapeless environments, as well as those who prefer the true “belt and suspenders” design. A hybrid solution which utilizes both tape and VTL in the configuration gives them the best of both worlds.

If you’re looking for your “belt and suspenders” data protection solution – Salvus Data Consultants are here to help.

Yes, believe it, there is constant data corruption coming in daily from server backups where the data is virtually impossible to restore. TSM can be set up to remedy these common situations on the fly. Salvus Data Consultants knows first hand how to configure TSM to protect your business critical data.

Theory of Black Swan EventsTheory of Black Swan Events

The Black Swan Theory or “Theory of Black Swan Events” is a metaphor that encapsulates the concept that the event is a surprise (to the observer) and has a major impact. After the fact, the event is rationalized by hindsight.

blackswanWhat we call here a Black Swan is an event with the following three attributes:

First, it is an outlier, as it lies outside the realm of regular expectations, because nothing in the past can convincingly point to its possibility.
Second, it carries an extreme impact.
Third, in spite of its outlier status, human nature makes us concoct explanations for its occurrence after the fact, making it explainable and predictable.

Managed Service Outsourcing Back Onto American Soil

Salvus Data Consultants would like to bring your outsourcing back onto American soil.

We have talked with many customers who are not satisfied with their out sourcing agreements. Yet – they hesitate to “in source” as that draws their focus from their core business.

At Salvus Data Consultants we feel your pain – and are here to solve it…

There is a growing trend of companies opening U.S.-based facilities to perform the work once done in foreign countries. The term used to describe a company moving services from a foreign country to the United States is “reshoring”; or “insourcing” if they never had a U.S facility before. IT departments of U.S. companies are actively watching this trend.  Read our Blog Post called EXPLORE THE ADVANTAGES IT DEPARTMENTS GAIN FROM THE RESHORING TREND to learn more.

Our engineers have been in US data centers and understand your business requirements, demands, and issues. There are IT service providers that have never considered moving their services offshore. Salvus Data, a Data Backup MSP specializing in TSM, is an example of a U.S. company in that category. The Salvus Cloud Management Model provides its customers access to a U.S. based D.O.D cleared team that manages business critical backup solutions.

“We were running out of scratch tapes, our backups were not completing, data was not getting offsite. Charlie was just a phone call away everytime we had a problem, and he always had the answer.” Subash S. – Michaels

Verizon Wireless

“We needed to standardize our backup solutions between our 4 data centers nationwide. They cared about it and made sure it was done right. The new VTL has cut our backup time by 50%.”

Gary V. – Verizon Wireless

U.S Forest Service

“I was really amazed at how much they knew about our environment after they performed their free health check. They just collected data from our environment, and immediately started pointing out things like data base backups were intermittently failing and after weekend backups, it took two days to process all offsite data.” Dave F. – U.S. Forest Service
