RestartIT is an online backup and recovery company that is fully owned by Venyu. Recently, the company changed its name to RestartIT to reflect a little bit more about what they do.
The main difference between RestartIT, formerly AmeriVault, and other online backup companies is that they choose to focus on Recovery Time Objective, or RTO. RTO is basically how long you can go without your data if your data is lost, which would usually be your number one concern, especially if you own a business.
RestartIT provides three separate levels, or tiers, of RTO to you when you decide to sign up for their services. You can choose from four to eight hours for complete recovery or choose to have individual files recovered in an instant. The three tiers of RTO offered by RestartIT, now RestartIT, are:
• Plus: RTO Estimate of 24 to 48 hours.
• Plus BMR: Estimate of 12 to 24 hours.
• DR: Estimate of 4 to 8 hours.
According to RestartIT, anyone can do online backup, but not everyone can recover data in a flash. This valuable time saver could be what ultimately saves your business.
The process is not all that involved and all you need to do in order to protect all the data on your computer and the rest of your business’ computers is to conduct an initial backup with RestartIT. Then your data is sent to a data center owned and operated by Venyu where they are encrypted and stored. But the protection doesn’t stop there as the data is then re-sent and re-encrypted to another of three other data centers some miles away ensuring that your data will always be secure and be able to be accessed if need be.
If any data ever does need to be restored, it is only a matter of a few short steps. With RestartIT, all you need to do to get your data back is to pull up the step-by-step wizard which will walk you through the process of data recovery both quickly and easily.
RestartIT also offers custom pricing.

You can also schedule a one-on-one demo with one of RestartIT engineers where they will use a program called GoToMeeting to show you how the entire process works.
