    High Availability, Inc. Raises $10,000 for Hurricane Harvey Relief

    The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey has been absolutely devastating for the state of Texas. Hurricane Harvey, which is now being classified as a Category 4 storm, has dumped over 27 trillion gallons of rain over Texas and has forced over 30,000 people to seek temporary shelter. Moreover, according to Enik Research, a disaster relief modeler, Hurricane Harvey could be the costliest hurricane to hit the United States in over a decade.

    After the storm passed, High Availability, Inc. acted immediately and set up a relief fund program for those affected by Hurricane Harvey and even matched each contribution dollar-for-dollar. Within just a few minutes – the H.A. team had raised over $3,000!

    “Everyone stepped up and was happy to help in any way they could,” said Greg Robertson, President and CFO at High Availability, Inc. “I feel very fortunate to be working with individuals who see the importance of helping those in need.”

    Within three days, High Availability, Inc. had raised exactly $10,000, which will be donated to the J.J. Watt Foundation. The J.J. Watt Foundation specializes in raising funds and support for after-school athletic programs in both Wisconsin and Texas, but has temporarily shifted their focus in the wake of the hurricane. They are now working with the Houston Flood Relief Fund to collect supplies and funds to help those affected by the storm.

  • The Challenge of Cloud Backups

    The Challenge of Cloud Backups

    For what it's worth, I'm a Cloud guy. Senior Cloud Architect, to be official about it. But, in a world where everything seems to have the word "Cloud" appended to it, the title feels a little less meaningful than it used to. I point that out because I want to explain how difficult and expensive it can be to use the Cloud for backups or archiving.  Now, Remember: I'm the Cloud guy. I'm the one who usually preaches about how the Cloud is full of rainbows, so if I say Cloud Backups are challenging, you may want to listen.

    2016 in the Rear View; 2017 Full Speed Ahead

    Every January, I sit down with H.A.’s leadership team to dissect the previous year and discuss what’s in store for the year ahead. After three days of great conversation, and entirely too much pizza, it appears I have enough material to write my first blog of the new year. In short, 2016 was an exhilarating year! I would compare it to driving one of those new, superfast electric cars down the shore on a holiday weekend. There are points in the ride where you are at a complete standstill with nowhere to turn, other points where you try to outsmart your navigation system by maneuvering, or even changing the route altogether, and finally, some areas where it’s open road and you can finally see what they mean by gearless and maximum torque. In the end, that sometimes frustrating, often challenging, but always exciting drive, usually leads to smiles for all involved. At H. A., we enjoy the vehicle, the journey and the destination.
