First Backup Chooses Remote Backup Systems’ Online Backup Software to Support New Service Levels

Remote Backup Systems, Inc. (RBS), developer and distributor of RBackupĀ® online backup software on the web at, today announced that AmberWave Communications, LLC has chosen RBS’ RBackup Remote Backup Software as the foundation for its next generation FirstBackupĀ® Professional online backup service.

The move to RBS’ product was needed to more closely match FirstBackup’s service levels with client requirements – particularly those of their business clients.

“AmberWave worked closely with RBS to develop the FirstBackup Professional online backup solution to meet the demands of our dynamic and ever-growing customer base.” said FirstBackup’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Bob Brainard, “RBS responded quickly with quality product enhancements to meet our specific needs.”

The resulting solution offers greater security, enhanced scheduling, more robust client-server communications and local redundancy. Through this relationship, FirstBackup can now offer more reliable and cost-effective solutions, with improved support for open files, system state, and active directory, plus “live” SQL and Exchange server backups. The initial licensing arrangement will allow AmberWave to add an additional 25,000 customers to their established FirstBackup subscriber base.

“We are excited to welcome FirstBackup/Amberwave to our global network of remote data backup service providers” commented Tommy Gardner, Remote Backup Systems’ Director of Sales and Marketing. “As remote backup solidifies itself as a core I.T. service worldwide, RBS welcomes the opportunity to fine-tune our product to meet the needs of our licensees.”
