Hurricane Irene approaching New York

As you may be aware there is a hurricane approaching New York.

We have posted an operations notice https://rimuhosting.com/maintenance.jsp?server_maint_oid=597636491

Now may be a good time for customers (especially NY-based ones) to take a moment to check their backup and recovery procedures.  And ensure you are well prepared for any resulting incidents.

Things to consider:

  • Always know where you have a recent backup.  Automate your backups where you can.  There are great offsite backup services available.  We even provide one: http://bakop.com
  • If you want to preempt the hurricane you can always use our VPS teleport tool to move your VPS from NY to Dallas (or London or down to balmy Auckland or Sydney).

[update: the storm is now abating.  We have not experienced any issues at the data center.]
