Global Data Vault Supports Local STEM Efforts

Global Data Vault Supports Local STEM Efforts

STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, is one of the most talked about subjects among educators today. The youth who pursue these fields often find themselves with lucrative careers after graduating because each of these skills is in incredibly high demand.

The problem, however, is that more and more young people are hesitant when it comes to STEM fields. In fact, U.S. News & World Report highlighted the situation when they cited a study by the Lemselson-MIT Intervention Index. According to this study, 60-percent of the young adults that the researchers surveyed said that there was at least one issue that stopped them from pursing an education or a career in a STEM field. Here are some of the reasons the survey’s respondents gave for avoiding STEM fields:

  • 34-percent were unfamiliar with STEM fields
  • 33-percent thought that STEM educations and careers were too difficult
  • 28-percent felt that their education didn’t give them the tools they needed to pursue further education in a STEM field

This is a huge problem, not just for the young people that are missing out on great educations and excellent careers, but for the United States as a whole. The fact is that we need people in these fields in order to stay competitive at the global level. People with strong educations in the STEM fields are what make our country a leader in innovation, and as time goes on, we’ll need more and more people to step up and fill these positions.

At Global Data Vault, we’re committed to giving back to the community and to supporting STEM educations and the youngsters that benefit from them. We know that talented young people in STEM fields will go on to become industry leaders. As they do so, everyone benefits, not only through technological and engineering advancements, but also from a healthy economy and diverse community.

This is why Global Data Vault supports efforts to promote STEM education at the local level. To that end, we’ve recently sponsored a local school, Prestwick STEM Academy, a Kindergarten – 8th grade school located in Little Elm Independent School District, with their recent Color Run efforts to fund an outdoor learning center. It is our belief that by giving back to institutions like these, we can help ensure a bright future for our nation’s youth.

The team from Global Data Vault hit the strip in Las Vegas last week, exhibiting at the datacenter availability event, VeeamON 2015. VeeamON 2015 connects the world’s leading IT experts and visionaries to learn how to ensure Availability for the Modern Data Center™.

Global Data Vault served as an event sponsor of VeeamON 2015, hosting a booth to share how our Veeam Cloud Connect with full disaster recovery service differs from the competition: Our solution is fully-managed and monitored. We also offer an EZ Dash web portal view of your protection. Plus, our risk-free 30 day evaluation is a great way to test-drive our expertise – and then enjoy our simplified pricing based on the size of the VMs on your storage.

VeeamON wasn’t all business however. Embracing the Star Trek theme, VeeamON featured the legendary William Shatner as master of ceremonies at the closing event. We felt it only fitting to show our sense of humor by giving away these punny shirts.

Data Protection Dashboard Provides Easy to Use Status Window

Data Protection Dashboard Provides Easy to Use Status Window

Global Data Vault Web Portal

At Global Data Vault, we ensure the quality of your recovery environment through constant monitoring. Nothing is more important to your business operations than your data and the systems that support it. Not only do we monitor your readiness, we make it easy for you to check in on the status of your data protection as well. Today, we’d like to introduce our improved customer dashboard.

Built as a Global Data Vault web portal, this single screen allows our customers full visibility of the status of their local and remote recovery options. The beauty of it is, it’s available – securely — 24/7/365 and can be viewed from any device with a browser. It works well on PCs, tablets, and mobile devices.

The keys to note are:

  • 100% of the environment is recoverable locally
  • 100% of the environment is recoverable remotely
  • The Restore Points “RP” are all within the last 2 hours – locally and remotely
  • The green “Yes” in the “Loc” and “Rem” columns indicate these restore points are within the promised agreed service levels, which are generally 4 to 8 hours

This same portal is available for physical and virtual environments as well as for much larger environments.

We provide this dashboard for all clients, from enterprise level to small office. Here’s an example of the portal screen of a company with 2 servers and 6 protected disks:

Dallas, TX – August 12, 2014 – For the fourth consecutive year, Dallas-based Global Data Vault, the cloud-based disaster recovery and data protection company is  among the Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies owned or operated by Louisiana State University graduates.

The LSU 100 identifies the “…fastest growing tiger businesses” owned or led by LSU graduates, in the world. This is not only a celebration of these companies’ success but also provides a forum to pass lessons to the next generation of LSU entrepreneurs.

Candidate companies are ranked by Postlethwaite & Netterville by compound annual growth over a two year period. The resulting LSU 100 comprises a list of alumnus entrepreneurs from across the United States, as well as internationally, recognized for business leadership and growth. Ranked companies are reviewed as to business conduct standards consistent with the values and image of the Stephenson Entrepreneur Institute and LSU. The LSU 100 celebrates the success of former LSU students and recognizes the impact of LSU on the local, regional and national economies.

“Global Data Vault is honored to be among the LSU 100 class of 2014. The recognition belongs to our entire team. I think basketball great Michael Jordan put it well in saying that, ‘Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.’” said Will Baccich, CEO of Global Data Vault.

Global Data Vault’s CEO, Will Baccich, is a 1980 computer science graduate of LSU. After his degree at LSU, Baccich went on to work in accounting and computer software before co-founding Dallas-based Global Data Vault in 2001. Baccich resides in Dallas, but his loyalties remain with his alma mater.

“LSU was a great foundation for entrepreneurial success. We’ve built on those business principals by working hard as a company to develop an expanded offering and consistently deliver world-class service to our customers,” says Baccich. “The dedication of this team to embrace new technologies, creatively solve our customer’s challenges, and ensure that our client companies have a viable solution that offers them peace of mind is something we strive for daily, and is reflected in our growth.” says Baccich.

The “LSU 100” strives to offer its honorees more than an awards ceremony and plaque. It also celebrates the spirit of success by providing a forum to pass lessons on to the next generation of LSU entrepreneurs. Part of the upcoming October festivities is a unique pairing of educational opportunities for the LSU 100 recipients to share their insight with the future generation of LSU entrepreneurs, and of course – a football game.
