HCST is moving our "Off-Site Backup Facility"

21 June, 2010

HCST is closing our Downtown-Dayton "offsite backup facility", and moving it to the Springfield OH area. The move to Springfield will result in lower costs for the facility and higher bandwidth between our primary operations in Beavercreek Ohio and the backup facility. The Springfield location is further away for disaster recovery purposes, is on a different commercial power grid from the Dayton area, and yet is still convenient for HCST personnel to access in the event of an emergency.

HCST will relocate our own off-site backup systems as well as some client backup services to the new Springfield facility. The actual move itself will only impact a handful of clients while the physical systems are being moved. All other HCST operations will not be affected. HCST already has "hot standby" systems in place at the Springfield facility for clients with high-reliability and fault-tolerance requirements.

In addition to the off-site backup services, HCST provides a full range of Business IT Support services (server, workstation and network), Voice-over IP systems, Internet access, email and other Business-oriented IT services.
