The new year is upon us, and 2018 is now firmly in the rearview mirror. It only seems right to take a moment and reflect on everything we did and accomplished over the last 12 months. This past year proved to be a big one for Global Data Vault. We’ve seen a lot of changes, and most of them were improvements. Here’s a nice recap of the many successes that propelled us to have the best year ever so far.
SEIM processing was added to our data centers and customer backup repositories. This represents a substantial increase to overall security for our entire space. It would not be unreasonable to claim that we have the most advanced security for customers in our market space.
A Streamlined Onboarding Process
We worked hard throughout 2018 to improve the procedures and processes we utilize to bring customer servers into our environment. The results speak for themselves. We have been able to implement customers with hundreds of servers in a matter of weeks in many cases. This reduction in turnaround enables us to better protect our customers on the timetable they need.
A New, Automated Backup Service
We revamped our backup service with an entirely new process. Signup and provision are now completely automated. This makes onboarding backup services easier than ever, and it ensures that our new customers are keeping their protection in place on their schedule.
Adding a space in our data centers is becoming a regular occurrence. We added significant storage and processing capacity to our entire infrastructure. Our Dallas and Las Vegas data centers have doubled the inbound bandwidth available which means we can handle more data and customers than ever before.
Veeam Certified Engineers
We want to offer congratulations. Two additional members of the tech team have become Veeam Certified Engineers (VMCE). The path to this certification is long and difficult, and the testing is rigorous. VMCE certifications are proof that our engineers are among an elite group of experts who can bring better knowledge, planning, and support to all our customers. We now have a total of 5 VMCEs!
Veeam Platinum Partner
Speaking of Veeam systems, our partnership has continued to prove itself. Once again we finished the year in the top tier of our market as a Platinum partner. This indicates our commitment to our customers and our ability to provide them with nothing less than the very best.
Another Year of Massive Growth
Over the last two years, our revenue has doubled. Our teams are doing amazing work bringing new customers online while maintaining quality across our entire environment. Doubling revenue is a major achievement, and it wouldn’t be possible with anything less than an amazing effort from every member of the Global Data Vault team and all the partner companies who support us, and especially Veeam.
Those of you who have been with us for a while might not be surprised by this accolade, but we are an honored member of the LSU 100. This marks our eighth consecutive receiving this honor. We are humbled and proud as ever, and we hope that we can take this momentum to make 2019 lucky year number 9.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by to celebrate our 15th year achievements. We’re thrilled with the results of 2018, and we’re hoping to make it a stepping stone to another great year in 2019. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with our plans, successes and stories throughout the year. Here’s to another great 12 months!
