Backup Software Company continues to Provide Protection to its Licensees and their Client's Data.

Remote Backup Systems, Inc., developer and distributor of RBackup™ online backup software on the web at, has announced that the backup Hot Site for use by its Service Providers in the path of Hurricane Rita remains available to its licensees.

This remote backup service provider's server-backup resource has been available for online backup service providers in coastal and outlying areas of Louisiana and Texas since one week before hurricane Katrina stormed ashore. The Hot Site remains open to areas to be affected by the new storm, with many RBS licensees' clients continuing to back up to the companies' datacenters near Memphis, Tennessee until they can reactivate local services.

Remote Backup Systems has activated this business-saving service for their licensees dating back to Hurricane Hugo in 1989, and is the only OEM online backup software company to extend this service to their clients.

“The 2005 Hurricane season was projected to be a very active one, and has certainly exceeded all projections in terms of destruction and economic impact,” commented Tommy Gardner, Remote Backup Systems' Director of Sales and Marketing, “Many businesses in the areas affected by Katrina that implemented an online backup solution ahead of her landfall are realizing the full value of their planning, and are already back to business.”

Many businesses along the Gulf Coast area are focusing on hurricanes as the primary reason to seek the services of a remote backup service provider or to outfit their company with remote backup software. Remote Backup Systems, Inc. wishes to remind all businesses and computer users that threats to data safety continue long after hurricane season has run its course, and typically include lightning strikes, employee error, and computer hardware failure, among many others.

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