OnRamp’s Data Center Disaster Recovery Solutions Help Coastal Companies Prepare for Hurricane Season

AUSTIN, TX – OnRamp Access is helping businesses in hurricane-prone  regions protect their IT infrastructure with Disaster Recovery solutions designed  to keep online operations up and running in the event of a natural disaster. This year, meteorologists have predicted  that storms forming within the Atlantic Basin region, including the Gulf of  Mexico, will have a higher likelihood of occurring closer to the United States  than in years past. This forecast poses an imminent threat to businesses lining  the coast, with the potential for prevailing winds to push the forces of these  storms directly inland, and placing businesses in the path of possible destruction. OnRamp  assists companies around the country in maintaining reliable disaster recovery  operations deployed from its Austin Data Center with the critical  infrastructure and Full7Layer Support necessary for 100% uptime 24/7/365.

According to the  U.S. Department of Labor – Bureau of Labor Statistics, “40% of all businesses  that experience a disaster never re-open. Of the remaining businesses, 25%  close within the following year.” OnRamp’s Disaster  Recovery solutions provide companies who cannot afford downtime, loss of  productivity and revenue with a secure, redundant and reliable environment to  deploy their operations for business continuity. OnRamp’s team of experienced network engineers and  technical staff are available around the clock to offer companies more than  just a place to store data safe from harm. The Austin Data Center provides Full7Layer Support from on-site engineers with experience all the way through the application  layer, thus removing the need for companies to travel between their office and  their data center to diagnose, troubleshoot, or remedy problems inside their  rack. Because OnRamp can support customers above the hardware layer, companies  often view OnRamp as an extension of their IT department, especially in times  of unforeseen disasters.

“When disasters  strike, it is essential for businesses to establish effective IT partners in  remote locations, to ensure the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of  data operations,” stated OnRamp’s Founder, Chad Kissinger. “In addition to  being a safe and secure environment for disaster recovery, companies are more  likely to be successful partnering with OnRamp because we provide a level of  support that far exceeds that of our competitors. Our experienced, on-site  support staff can facilitate the installation, monitoring and maintenance of  equipment, which is important to disaster recovery customers whose IT staff is  far removed from their equipment by design.”

OnRamp has helped  hundreds of businesses across the country, and on the coast, successfully  replicate their online infrastructure at the company’s Austin Data Center in  response to past natural disasters, including Hurricanes Rita and Ike. Austin is one of the safest areas in the  country for storing data. Situated away from floodplains, landslides, seismic faults, and having no reported incidence of hurricanes, Austin provides a  geographically stable environment for Disaster Recovery. Not only is Austin  free from major weather-related threats, its physical location within the US is  an added benefit in terms of latency and general connectivity, making it  perfect for the placement of infrastructure that is intended to serve data to  end users all over the US.
