June 18, 2010 - Rensselaer, New York - Vision Data this week activated a "live" remote hot-backup system to provide complete security for Vision Data customers who are running systems hosted by Vision Data on either an ASP (Application Service Provider) or SaaS (Software as a Service) basis. The system is located in a Vision Data owned facility in another city, miles from Vision Data’s main hosted-server location, insuring continued operation in the event of a natural disaster at Vision Data’s primary site.
Both of Vision Data’s hosted server systems are housed in wholly-owned 100% Vision Data occupied facilities. The main facility has offices on three floors and its own private parking lot, providing great control of building security. This site already boasts an on-site natural gas generator which automatically supports the electrical energy and telephone needs of our main facility. Customer data at the backup site is updated from the live site, 24/7.
"In the event of a power loss Vision Data can continue to operate at our main or remote site, safeguarding the investment newspapers have made in Vision Data’s cutting-edge publication software systems." commented Thomas A. Dempsey, company president. "With the additional security of remote off-site backup, our customers can be totally assured that Vision Data will continue to run their hosted system in the face of any kind of natural disaster. Any publication can now run their newspaper from Vision Data's site on a full-time or backup basis with short notice over our own ASP/SaaS servers with the security of knowing that we will continue to function, even in the event of a power failure."
Vision Data is also one of the most financially secure and durable publication software firms in existence today, with a 35+ year single-U.S. ownership and a history of a steadily increasing customer base since its inception in 1973 with a current support list of over 2,000 publications.. With no long-term debt on the balance sheet and an ongoing annual base of support income of roughly two million dollars per year, Vision Data has built a solid staff of industry professionals, including former publishers and industry experts with over five hundred years of combined programming and publishing experience.
