The forecast track for major Hurricane Irma is showing that the eye will pass very close if not directly over the RATA facility in Longwood, FL. While our building is built to hurricane standards and we have redundant systems for power, internet connectivity may go down and be down for some time. This would affect Comply auto-updates as well as Comply registration services. During any outage, files which require geocoding can be uploaded to the RATA support website (support.rataassociates.com). This server is co-located outside of Florida and will be unaffected by the hurricane. Files will be processed and returned via the support website until any infrastructure outages are resolved at our Longwood facility. In preparation of the impact Irma may have on our facility, we will be closing operations at 12:00 noon ET today, September 8th and will be closed Monday September 11th. Any need for closure beyond Monday the 11th will be determined after assessments are made to potential damages incurred during the storm.
