Remote Backup Systems, the founders of the online backup industry and developers of the RBackup and Mercury OEM Online Backup platforms activated its Emergency Backup Hot Site for use by its Partners in the path of the approaching East Coast Super Storm.
Remote Backup Systems has offered this business-saving service to their clients dating back to hurricane Hugo in 1989. This resource is available to online backup partners affected by natural disasters such as hurricanes, winter storms, widespread power outages, earthquakes, tornadoes, fires, and floods affecting their data center.
If an RBS Server goes offline because of a natural disaster, RBS can temporarily take backups from provider’s clients at the Hot Site near Memphis, Tennessee, so the Partner doesn’t suffer further. When the disaster is over and the providers’ servers go back online, they can download the backups and resume normal business.
Remote Backup Systems encourages all of its Online Backup Partners in threatened areas to visit the company’s website at http://www.remote-backup.com for more information on the Hot Site service, including guidelines and instructions for activation.
“We’ve been lucky the past few years to have avoided major hurricanes,” said Rob Cosgrove, CEO and founder of Remote Backup Systems, “However, the next few days look a little sketchy for the East coast because Hurricane Sandy is expected to combine with two other storms to create a rare late season super storm.”
Built into Remote Backup Systems multi-award winning flagship product, RBackup, is a special feature called the Server Locator. It enables a Partner to maintain normal business in the event of a disaster by immediately transferring end users to the RBS Hot Site. It also enables them to move their RBS Servers safely to any Internet connection with a dynamic IP address anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice.
No other company offers this cutting-edge service.
In an outage of Internet service, Partners can simply move their equipment to an alternate location with Internet service, and the Server Locator will seamlessly redirect their clients within seconds to the new location.
