Remote Backup Systems has offered this business-saving service to their clients dating back to hurricane Hugo in 1989. This resource is available to online backup partners affected by natural disasters such as hurricanes, winter storms, widespread power outages, earthquakes, tornadoes, fires, and floods affecting their data centers.

If an RBS Server goes offline because of a natural disaster, RBS can temporarily take backups from its Partner’s clients at the Hot Site in California so the Partner doesn’t suffer further. When the disaster is over and Partners’ servers go back online, they can download the backups and resume normal business.

Remote Backup Systems encourages all of its Online Backup Partners in threatened areas to visit the company’s website at for more information on the Hot Site service, including guidelines and instructions for activation.

“We are expecting widespread power outages,” said Rob Cosgrove, CEO and founder of Remote Backup Systems, “We want to make sure our Partners can continue business as usual.”

Built into Remote Backup Systems multi-award winning flagship product, RBackup, is a special feature that enables a Partner to maintain normal business in the event of a disaster by immediately transferring end users to an RBS Hot Site. It also enables them to move their RBS Servers safely to any backup Internet connection with a dynamic IP address anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice.

No other company offers this cutting-edge service.

In an outage of Internet service, Partners can simply move their equipment to an alternate location with Internet service, or switch to a backup connection, and RBackup will seamlessly redirect their clients within seconds to the new IP address.
