Disaster Recovery Services From OnRamp Now Support Coastal Companies During Hurricane Season

August 21, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
OnRamp Access, a data center service provider in Austin, Texas, now offers disaster recovery and managed hosting solutions to coastal companies as the 4th anniversary of Hurricane Ike approaches. With an increased likelihood of storms in the Atlantic Basin region this season, OnRamp's disaster recovery solutions help businesses keep their critical IT infrastructure running securely, reliably, and effectively 24/7/365 from the safety of its geographically stable data center location in Austin, Texas.

Although some companies in the path of Hurricane Ike were able to maintain their IT infrastructure and online operations, other disaster recovery challenges existed in the storm's aftermath. Widespread power outages lasting several weeks forced many IT operations to shut down and others to narrowly survive on backup generator power. Those residing in coastal cities and low-lying areas around Houston, Texas, who were able to implement disaster recovery, were still met with a mandatory evacuation, displacing their technical staff. Primary data storage sites were thus left inaccessible, resulting in a loss of productivity and revenue, and leaving critical systems highly vulnerable.

OnRamp's data center is far removed from the threat of natural disasters, has a low seismic risk, and zero incidents of hurricanes, making it an ideal disaster recovery location. "Whether OnRamp serves as a company's primary disaster recovery data storage site, or as a secondary site for managed hosting purposes, we make sure your IT operation is safely running 24/7/365," said Chad Kissinger, Founder of OnRamp. "For companies who do not host their IT operations in a geographically stable part of the country, there is a risk of downtime associated with natural disasters that can result in a loss of revenue, or worse, force them to shut down their business altogether." OnRamp's managed hosting and disaster recovery solutions pair best in class hardware equipment from HP, Cisco, NetApp and EMC with redundant power, multi-homed bandwidth over fully meshed networks and 24/7/365 monitoring for 100% uptime. OnRamp's experienced onsite engineers ensure 100% uptime, a feature that is especially important for disaster recovery customers.

OnRamp's managed hosting and disaster recovery services offer the flexibility of customizing a solution that bests suits a company's budget and agenda. From managed servers, to disaster recovery, managed network devices, dedicated server hosting, managed storage and managed backups, OnRamp can create a managed hosting solution to meet its clients' specific disaster recovery needs.
