)-- Remote Backup Systems, Inc. (RBS), developer and distributor of RBackup™ online backup software on the web at http://remote-backup.com
, today announced the launch of a free service dedicated to proactively protecting computer data in hurricane zones within the U.S.
The service, named GeeksForRelief.com, is a consortium of professional remote data backup providers committed to providing free online backup services for businesses and households located in coastal communities throughout the Southeastern and Atlantic United States.
Online backup service companies taking part in the GeeksForRelief.com project normally charge a recurring monthly fee for their data backup services. As part of this program, the service providers will provide from 2 Gigabytes to 10 Gigabytes of free online backup space to those in the affected areas for 120 days after the individual or organization activates the service.
“In light of last year’s violent storms and related data losses, our licensees felt it was important to provide free backup services to unprotected businesses and households along the U.S. Gulf Coast and Eastern Seaboard”, commented Tommy Gardner, Director of Sales and Marketing for Remote Backup Systems. “By offering free online data backup services to those in need during hurricane season, we collectively hope to spare many businesses and individuals the trauma, cost, and inconvenience associated with losing valuable computer data.”
Geeks for Relief are comprised of seasoned professional data backup companies, many whom also specialize in other computer and technology services. Online backup service providers interested in joining Geeks for Relief may visit: http://geeksforrelief.com/joinus.htm .
The free service is available to all residents and businesses situated in coastal and outlying areas from Texas to Maryland, and the software is available for immediate download from the GeeksForRelief.com website.
