High Availability

Our commitment to providing superior performance and on-time service requires us to put a high priority on systems availability and uptime.  To ensure this high level of service, K&B developed and maintained reliable and redundant IT systems housed at different locations to maintain performance during disaster situations.

Main Office Disaster mitigation – This office has multiple connections to the internet each provided via a different ISP with a different network type (T1 vs. Fiber Optic).  Our permanent, onsite diesel power generator is capable of switching within seconds of a detected power outage and providing power to both the office and shop.  All computer equipment has backup battery power (UPS) to maintain server and workstation uptime during a power outage.

HA Office disaster mitigation – This out of state office sits in a building built for disasters.  Multiple power grids feed power to the building.  It has multiple connections to the internet each provided via a different ISP with a different network type (T1 vs. Fiber Optic).  Identical servers receiving mirroring updates continuously updated and within 2 seconds of original.  We’ve also prepared pre-configured workstations setup and ready for use in addition to mobile capabilities to ensure staff can quickly resume normal business after a disaster.
