Online Backup Hotsite Open for Historic Northeastern USA Blizzard

Partners of Online Backup Software company Remote Backup Systems can activate their Hotsites now. All partners with active maintenance subscriptions can log into the RBS Partner Portal at to activate their hotsites in advance of the storm bearing down on the northeastern USA.

The Hotsite switch is on the opening screen, just after login. After you turn it on RBS will begin monitoring your RBS Server(s). If your servers loose power or Internet we will automatically switch your end users to our data center, where they can safely backup their data until your server becomes available.

After the event is over your traffic will be switched back to your server. The failover and recovery is completely automatic. The result is that your end users will have no loss of service.

There is no additional fee for Hotsite service. It is included in your maintenance subscription.

Remote Backup Systems has provided a hotsite service for our Partners since 1989.
