Oxygen IT takes to Christchurch streets

Oxygen IT takes to Christchurch streets

With most of the Christchurch central business district off-limits until damaged buildings are declared safe or demolished, IBM reseller Oxygen IT has taken to bicycles to get businesses back online.

According to Oxygen IT managing director Stace Hema, many businesses such as the Arts Centre had their servers disrupted and have had no websites or emails working properly since the 7.1 magnitude earthquake.

“With the co-operation of the police, army, city council and Civil Defence, IT specialists from Oxygen IT have been cycling the inner business district getting clients’ and other business servers back online.”

Hema says it was too difficult moving within the CBD by vehicle.

“Despite the devastation, we and other smaller IT companies in Christchurch are coming together to help attend to each others’ customers. I’m very proud of the people of my home town to get stuck in and help each other out.”
