Deerfield Beach, Florida – (via THE HOSTING NEWS) – August 26, 2005 –
Prior to the strike of hurricane Katrina, Web United, a full-service
managed network services company, had been preparing for hurricane season by upgrading its equipment.
Web United’s President, Michael Spiegel, commented on the importance of being prepared, “Business owners are beginning to think of their data like their home and personal belongings. Most business owners now realize that they must be prepared for data disaster, they know they can’t gamble with their data.”
Spiegel noted that, “The resources of our parent company, Landmark Communications, have enabled us to purchase and install a new 312 KVA Back Up Generator which operates on a 500 gallon diesel fuel tank and ensures automatic ‘failover’ upon utility outage. The unit can fully power our facility and keep our customers online for five days.”
Landmark is an 80-year-old private company, which owns media properties including television stations, newspapers, The Weather Channel and Weather.com.
Collocation services consist of mirroring a company’s data platform at a separate, secure location such as Web United headquarters in Deerfield Beach, Florida. As part of Landmark’s Continental Broadband group of companies, Web United can also offer to its customers similar backup services in other parts of the country. Web United offers access to multiple Tier 1 providers and consistent power and cooling for network equipment. On site personnel ensure 24x7x365 secured access. Companies working with Web United to protect their data include Fox Network/Channel 7 television, TRACI Communications, and Think Technologies.
