(Gawkwire) – OnRamp, an industry leading high security and hybrid hosting solutions provider with data center locations in Austin, TX and Raleigh, NC, announced today that the company has officially extended its webinar series centered on the topic of disaster recovery. The final installment of the four part-series will be held September 4th and will feature OnRamp partner, SHI International Corporation. The decision to extend the series came from the high level of engagement and interest from IT decision makers in need of disaster recovery solutions to ensure 100% uptime.
In a statement from OnRamp’s Director of Technical Services and Chief Architect John Thurik, which was highlighted in the initial news release announcing the webinar series, Thurik explained, “This series will provide a forum for businesses to discuss the basics of utilizing a data center service provider to develop and maintain business continuity objectives, and showcase a few of the industry-leading resources currently being used to maintain the availability and integrity of data.”
Thurik, OnRamp’s host for the Disaster Recovery Webinar Series, held discussions with hardware vendor EMC and software vendor NeverFail which covered several topics related to disaster recovery, including the importance of developing disaster recovery and business continuity plans to meet Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO). The final webinar in the series, titled “Disaster Recovery or Disaster Prevention?” will feature guest speaker Kurt Bosch, PSO Infrastructure Practice Director from SHI and will be held September 4, 2014 at 1CDT.
