Online Backup Software Company RBS Opens Free Hot Site for Partners

Remote Backup Systems, developers of the RBackup White Labeled Online Backup platform, has updated its Emergency Backup Hot Site for use by its Partners in the path of hurricane activity this season, at no cost.

This resource is available to all RBackup Partners with active maintenance subscriptions whose data centers are in the path of hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires, or widespread power outages that threaten to interrupt normal operation.

If an RBS Server goes offline as a result of a natural disaster, RBS can temporarily reroute backups from clients to secure servers at the Hot Site near Memphis, Tennessee to prevent interruption of business for the Partners. When the disaster is over and the partner’s data centers are back online, the Partner can download backups and resume normal operation.

NOAA predicts a less active hurricane season for 2015, with six to eleven named storms, and three to six becoming hurricanes.

Remote Backup Systems would like to remind Partners that a natural disaster can occur any time, year round. Emergency Hot Site Servers are always on standby. To activate yours, log into the Partner’s Portal at and simply turn on your Hot Site switch. Hot Sites are turned on and off in batch once an hour. You will receive an email when yours is ready.

Once turned on, the Hot Site will monitor your Server. If your Server goes offline, your customers will automatically back up to the Hot Site servers, so they see no service outage. When your Server comes back online, your customers will automatically switch back to your Server.

Built into Remote Backup Systems multi-award winning flagship product, RBackup, is a 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. The Server Locator also enables Partners to move their RBS Servers safely to any Internet connection with a dynamic IP address anywhere in the world, at a moment’s notice. No other company offers this business-saving service.

In the event of an outage 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.

The RBackup software has built in automatic failover and recovery features that allow Partners to operate fully redundant geographically separate Servers for mission critical customers.

RBackup is a white-labeled, fully brandable online backup platform for MSPs who use it to offer online backup services to their clients, hosting the backup servers themselves. License models include low cost one-price perpetual licensing and monthly subscription models.
