OnRamp has announced that the company will host a webinar series centered on the topic of disaster recovery. The series will demonstrate how OnRamp customers can meet Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) using the hardware and SaaS models provided by OnRamp’s industry partners EMC and NeverFail. The webinar series will highlight how OnRamp helps businesses protect their IT infrastructure with disaster recovery solutions designed to keep online operations up and running, even in the event of a natural disaster.

“When disasters strike, it is essential for businesses to establish effective IT partners in remote locations, to ensure the availability of data operations,” stated Chad Kissinger, OnRamp Founder. “Aside from the benefits of having secure data center locations, well-removed from the coasts, our state-of-the-art facilities are staffed with experienced engineers who can provide Full7Layer Support all the way up through the application layer. That means, if customers are unable to travel to our data centers in the event of an emergency, OnRamp’s team of onsite technicians can serve as an extension of a customer’s IT department, handling everything from simple reboots to more complicated requests.”

While data centers can help account for many of the physical and technical aspects of securing a business’ IT operations, it is not uncommon for businesses to employ additional software and hardware solutions that help them in the process of failing-over IT operations and replicating data. OnRamp’s Disaster Recovery Webinar Series will showcase a few of the solutions its own customers utilize to carry out this vital business process.
