Wilma Hits Verio Web Hosting Site - MicroSurvey Sites Down
The world's largest operator of business web sites, Verio Inc., was hit by the latest Hurricane to strike the American Southeast. MicroSurvey Software Inc.'s web sites at www.microsurvey.com and www.mapscenes.com, both hosted at Verio's Boca Raton center were affected.
Verio stated that their emergency backup generators, tested immediately before Wilma hit, did not start when the Florida power company serving Verio's data center had to shut down two nuclear generating stations.
MicroSurvey decided to move its web site to RackForce Hosting in Kelowna, BC. The Okanagan Valley has a very temperate climate and does not suffer from hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, ice storms, tsunamis, or other natural disasters.
MicroSurvey's OfficeSync web site is located in San Diego and was not effected.
MicroSurvey Software Inc., is a BC Corporation located in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. In 2001 MicroSurvey was also listed in the Deloitte & Touche Fast 500 - a group of the 500 fastest growing companies in North America.
