Online Backup Software company readies hot site for Hurricane season

Remote Backup Systems, Inc., developer and distributor of RBackup™ online backup software on the web at, today announced the activation of its emergency backup Hot Site for use by its Service Providers in the path of Hurricane activity this season. This immediately makes backup resources available for online backup service providers in areas which may be affected by the storms.

The prospects for data loss during these storms should not be underestimated, and officials at weather agencies across the country are reminding us that destruction and damage are not limited to the outlying coastal areas. According to the Director of the NOAA weather service, brigadier general (ret.) David L. Johnson, ”... preparation plans should consider that these storms carry severe weather, such as tornadoes and flooding, while moving inland."

Remote Backup Systems has activated the Online Backup Hot Site for their licensees dating back to Hurricane Hugo in 1989, and is the only company in the backup software business that extends this service to their clients.

“While last year’s Hurricane season was very active, many businesses remain unprotected from the effects of data loss even today”, commented Tommy Gardner, Remote Backup Systems’ Director of Sales and Marketing, “RBS would also like to remind the business community that Hurricanes are only one of many ongoing threats to the safety and availability of their business data, which for most businesses is their most valuable asset.”

RBS encourages all of its online backup providers in threatened areas to visit the company’s website at immediately for more information about the Hot Site service, including guidelines for activation.
