Dallas, Texas and Garden City, N.Y. – November 7, 2011 – (Retalix Synergy 2011) – Data Storage Corporation (DSC), a provider of data protection and business continuity solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Diaz Foods to provide its DSC HA (high availability) solution. DSC’s solution ensures business continuity for this food distributor – helping it to provide ongoing services to its more than 5,000 customers in 25 states even during a system failure.
Diaz Foods joins a growing number of DSC customers in the food industry, some of which include: Pratts Wholesale Limited, Sunflower Farmers Markets, Tony’s Fine Foods, and UNFI (United Natural Foods). All these clients leverage the powerful software applications offered by Retalix to simplify processes, optimize assets and drive growth through their supply chain – from warehouse to checkout.
“We decided to go with the HA service because as a company we cannot afford any downtime,” Lisa Willingham, systems administrator at Diaz Foods explained. “It is like the insurance policy you hope you never have to use. While Diaz Foods is not a small company, we still have a small IT staff. It is comforting knowing that we have a backup plan and a strong partner to be there for us when the unthinkable happens. In addition to the data recovery aspects of the service, a bonus is that we can switch to our ‘backup’ AS/400 and keep our business running while we do system maintenance and PTF’s. I have found everyone I have worked with at Data Storage Corporation to be extremely knowledgeable and super easy and fun to work with.”
“We welcome Diaz Foods on board as a DSC HA customer,” said Matthew Grosso, executive vice president at DSC. “Like other food industry companies that rely on Retalix software applications to run their business, we are able to come in and help ensure that Diaz Foods’ data, applications and systems will be available when and where they need them and give them the peace of mind that they will be able to continue their business operations if a system failure of any type occurs.”
DSC will be sponsoring the Mardi Gras party during the Retalix Synergy 2011 conference on November 7 from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. DSC will be giving away an iPad 2 as a door prize at the end of the evening.
