Since that time, the new site was designed, and re-designed, and re-designed until a clean, logical layout was prepared that would allow clients and visitors alike to easily navigate the site, able to find the information they want in with minimal effort.
The new structure follows a consistent look & feel, providing quick and easy access to any part of the site from any other part of the site.
We hope that you find the new site enjoyable and more suitable to your
tasks at hand.
Initially designed for in-house use, DoBackup is Webcon's premier multi-server backup solution.
DoBackup is a flexible cross-platform program (written in Perl) to handle unattended incremental backups of multiple servers. It handles multiple media sets with automatic media preparation and rotation, has configurable 'what-to-backup' rules, global exclusion patterns, user settable 'don't-backup-this-directory' metafiles, and many other advanced features.
DoBackup's design goal is to be as close to zero-maintenance as possible. In the case of tape or cartridge backup media, there is absolutely nothing for the system administrator to do but change the media when instructed via an automatically generated email.
DoBackup has been released to the public via the popular
and on Webcon's own

Reliability and performance will be greatly increased with these changes
and improve our already extensive services to our clients.
As of 10:00pm, Wednesday, December 30th, 1998, Webcon has been connected by triple redundant high-speed links to major Canadian backbone operators. Available network bandwidth is more than 250 times that of Webcon's old connection.
The increased capacity will allow for more clients, better service, and a
99.99% uptime capability.
"There were some minor last minute changes necessary, but we still expect to be moved and fully operational by January 1st", said Ian Morgan, Webcon's Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer. He would not comment as to exactly what those minor changes were, but he assured the press that there was no cause for alarm. Webcon's previous announcements regarding their plans for new corporate headquarters were welcomed openly by all of the company's shareholders and clientele.
On the subject of increased bandwidth, Morgan said that discussions were
underway with a number of Ottawa area firms to provide redundant
high-speed network access. Morgan claims that their new connectivity will
ensure a 5000% increase in resource availability over their previous
network capacity, allowing for more clients, better service, and a 100%
uptime guarantee on most services.
Webcon's President, Robert Hardy, and Vice President, Ian Morgan, were on hand after the announcement to answer a few questions:
Q: "Why has Webcon chosen this time to move to new headquarters, and what benefits will your clients see?"
A: "Webcon has always been about service. We aim to provide the
best customer service possible while maintaining our standard of
realistic prices, not artificially inflated to fill some corporate
big-wig's pockets. We believe that our new corporate offices will
increase the strength of the relationship between ourselves and our
clients. Our new offices will provide space for more employees, something
we are in dire need of. The market is expanding very quickly, and we have
to keep up or ship out. And we have no intention of shipping out. With
our scheduled increase in employment, we'll be able to handle more and
larger jobs for more clients than ever before. How will our new
headquarters benefit our clients? Service. It all comes down to
Q: "Webcon has survived the rocky road of new businesses. With it's feet firmly on the ground, do you see big changes coming soon?"
A: "Absolutely. Webcon started almost four years ago in a room not much bigger than a closet. Like any business, you start small and work your way up from there. Some make it, and some don't. I won't stand here and tell you that the going was easy, because it wasn't. The founders of this company had little business savvy, but what they did have was an idea. They also had the skills to make that idea grow. Soon, they rose from a number of clients you could count on one hand, until they were too many to count. A few years of navigating rough waters in the business world won't make you an expert, but it'll sure make you a lot better than you were when you started. Just the fact that we're still here and haven't drowned under the pressures of high-tech business says a lot.
"Webcon has been biding it's time in the market, and now it's ready to make it's mark. With the new network in place by the year's end, we'll be ready to take on the most demanding jobs. We expect to expand our network capacity by over 5000%, allowing a level of customer service and satisfaction unprecedented in our company's history.
"Change is mandatory. In our business, you have to be very quick or you
fall behind. Some changes will be big, and others small, but all of them
will be made to achieve our goal of staying ahead of the pack."
The major item on the agenda for this first meeting was to elect the corporation's Directors for the next year.
All shareholders unanimously agreed that the founding members of the
company should hold the first Directorships of the corporation. As a
result, the directors of Webcon, Inc. for 1998/99 were selected as
As a final item of business, the next annual shareholder's meeting was scheduled for 1999/08/01, with the time and place to be announced not less than 30 days prior to the meeting.
Shortly after, the first annual Director's meeting was held. The corporate By-Laws, having been reviewed by the shareholders, were ratified by Mr. Hardy and Mr. Morgan.
The next annual Director's meeting was scheduled for 1999/08/01.
