Dobson Telephone has been serving customers in the rural communities in Oklahoma for over 70 years. They are now expanding the utilization of their large telecommunications infrastructure by entering the data backup and recovery market. They have now launched a new company called, CoreVault™, which will provide online data backup and recovery solutions to businesses. “We have been researching and putting together this new business venture over the last two years. There is a lot of growth and potential in this market as businesses are looking for better ways of backing up and restoring their data,” said Jim Rutherford, President.
CoreVault will be targeting primarily small to medium businesses in the immediate five state region of Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas. “Companies have been utilizing the tape backup method for many years that has proven to be unreliable, costly and not very secure. This has been realized this year with companies like Bank of America and Citigroup losing their 1.2 and 3.9 million customers’ data that contained their private data including social security numbers. “Our online service allows companies to have a more reliable, secure and automated process of backing up their data,” says Jim Rutherford. In fact, according to The Gartner Group, “34% of companies fail to test their backups and of those that do, 77% have found tape back up failures.”
One other key product differentiator for CoreVault is that it has its own fiber optic network that runs from Oklahoma City to Amarillo back to Western Oklahoma and then to Oklahoma City. “We feel like this is an important differentiator between us and the competition. We control the data once it hits our network since we own it. Our primary and secondary vault sites are also connected via our own GigE network, which gives us plenty of bandwidth to replicate our data between sites. We are excited about the opportunity and our ability to offer a service that every business needs more of every day” says Jim Rutherford.
CoreVault is a leader of secure online backup and recovery solutions with its software, privately owned fiber optic network and best of class customer support and service. The company’s primary focus is providing and implementing reliable and easy-to-use solutions to meet businesses’ growing data management needs. CoreVault addresses the entire data protection lifecycle with the flexibility of centralized, online data backup with high availability of rapid recovery assisting with regulatory compliance.
