Online Tech is a leading IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) company who provides its clients with on-demand, secure and compliant hybrid cloud, colocation, disaster recovery and offsite backup services. The company's managed IT infrastructure protects mission-critical applications to ensure they are always available, secure and comply with government and industry regulations.

Many companies are challenged with minimizing their data loss and retaining their long-term data to keep their businesses running continuously. From a risk perspective, data protection and long-term data retention are critical, but they are also costly. Leveraging Actifio's long-term data retention solution, OnVault, enables their enterprise customers to reuse data for business intelligence, data analytics, compliance and data warehousing tools to unlock insights, while also reducing cost and risk for backup, disaster recovery and long-term data retention.

"We are really excited to be able to partner with a Actifio for such a unique long-term data retention solution," said Jason Yaeger, Senior Director of Solutions Architecture at Online Tech. "Long-term storage is particularly important for our healthcare clients, who often need to retain data for seven years or longer. These clients benefit from the instant data recoverability Actifio software offers."

"The EDaaS approach for long-term data retention and data resiliency delivers instant access to data to help customers drive business acceleration in other areas," said Ash Ashutosh, founder and CEO at Actifio. "Online Tech's customers now have a single data management tool to handle the entire lifecycle of data generated by business applications and other sources; from creation, protection, analysis and compliance, both on-premise or in the cloud."

Online Tech and Actifio will be hosting an IT networking event to celebrate and kick off their partnership April 6 at Drake's in Indianapolis. To learn more and to register, visit www.onlinetech.com/actifioevent.

Online Tech CEO - AWS Failure Provides Reality Check For Public Cloud http://www.onlinetech.com/company/news/2017-press-releases/online-tech-ceo-aws-failure-provides-reality-check-for-public-cloud http://www.onlinetech.com/company/news/2017-press-releases/online-tech-ceo-aws-failure-provides-reality-check-for-public-cloud March 1, 2017, Ann Arbor, Michigan — Amazon Web Services (AWS), providing public cloud services to roughly 40 percent of the U.S. market, crashed on Tuesday afternoon for about five hours, unplugging millions of business websites that serve tens of millions of clients. Online Tech CEO Yan Ness said chief information officers are still picking up the pieces today, and are also trying to figure out how they can avoid the destruction caused by this digital tornado.

Yan Ness,
CEO of Online Tech

“This was not about the Amazon outage,” Ness said Wednesday, “but how not to lose control when businesses use the public cloud. For us, our message is that we help CIOs rest easy by enabling them to seize control of their IT.”

Ann Arbor-based Online Tech provides its clients a hybrid cloud environment with a suite of managed security and disaster recovery services. Unlike public cloud providers, Ness said, Online Tech provides protection against hardware failures and doesn’t require application code to be written to utilize their multiple sites for failover and backup.

In his analysis of the AWS outage, he noted that Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) provides the building blocks for many of their other services. When S3 failed, this foundation crumbled, leading to widespread downtime across the internet. “Even AWS’ dashboard crashed because it was tied to S3, so CIOs had no way of knowing what was going on, and, more importantly, how long the outage would last,” Ness said.

“The promise of the public cloud is scalability and agility.” Ness said. “But the outage yesterday provided many businesses with a reality check. Expensive code rewrites and complex engineering are required to realize those benefits and maintain uptime.”

Virtual Private Cloud Updated with Ability to Move Resources Across Cloud Servers

September 30, 2016, Ann Arbor, Michigan — Online Tech is proud to announce it has updated its Virtual Private Cloud offering to further improve elasticity and cost management for clients with both persistent and non-persistent workloads. Virtual Private Cloud users can now allocate their storage, RAM and CPU resources as their workloads demand, through its client portal (OTPortal™), with the click of a button.

Instead of being locked into a cloud server with a specific amount of RAM, disk space, and CPU resources, clients can now have pools of those resources they can freely distribute between all of their cloud servers. This allows for much greater flexibility and elasticity when faced with peaks in demand due to testing, development or uneven usage patterns.

"Over the past two years, we have been focused on creating one of the highest performing and most reliable cloud infrastructures in the industry," said Nick Lumsden, VP of Technology and Product Strategy at Online Tech. "Now that we have accomplished that feat, we are focused on making our virtual private clouds the most flexible enterprise offering out there that is also extremely easy to use."

Online Tech’s Virtual Private Clouds are built with an all-flash array and built-in encryption that keeps data secure without sacrificing performance. All cloud servers are fully managed and also come with self-serve functionality built into OTPortal™ which allows clients to control their servers, add resources and take snapshots.

Soon, Online Tech will integrate the public cloud into OTPortal to create a full end-to-end hybrid solution managed by a single vendor with a single pane of glass. This combined with Online Tech’s colocation offering allows companies to maximize the ROI on their IT spend placing the best workloads in the most cost-effective places.

This initiative by Online Tech is just one of many changes aimed at creating a friction-free experience for clients. Earlier this year, Online Tech launched its new Disaster Recovery as a Service product, OT DRaaS, which utilizes its cloud infrastructures in Michigan and Indiana, making it easy to fail over between data centers in minutes.

Online Tech upgrades its client portal to allow instant access to cloud resources http://www.onlinetech.com/company/news/2016-press-releases/online-tech-upgrades-its-client-portal-to-allow-instant-access-to-cloud-resources http://www.onlinetech.com/company/news/2016-press-releases/online-tech-upgrades-its-client-portal-to-allow-instant-access-to-cloud-resources New self-serve capabilities allow for greater flexibility, control

June 30, 2016, Ann Arbor, Mich. — Online Tech announced today that it has made several upgrades to its client-facing portal, OTPortal, to meet the on-demand computing needs of their enterprise clients. These upgrades enable those with virtual private clouds to make changes to their CPU, storage, and RAM for immediate access.

The upgrades aim to deliver a more seamless IT experience. Adding the flexibility of self-serve allows clients to more rapidly allocate additional resources as their workloads demand it. Clients will also still have the option to call or email Online Tech’s white-glove support team for any of these changes or if they need any assistance with the portal.

“The new improvements of OTPortal allow me to add resources whenever I need,” said Colin Fish, cofounder and CEO of Annkissam Hosting. “In particular, scheduling the resource additions at a time of my choosing is a great feature because it cuts down feedback loops and puts the power at my fingertips.”

“Online Tech strives to give clients the best experience within the portal, and these new upgrades really help deliver that experience,” said Kurt Schaldenbrand, product design manager at Online Tech. “I am excited to help bring this level of service to our clients.”

These new features are one of many steps Online Tech is taking to provide a more frictionless experience for their clients.

Online Tech announces next-generation cloud at Michigan and Indiana data centers http://www.onlinetech.com/company/news/2016-press-releases/online-tech-announces-next-generation-cloud-at-michigan-and-indiana-data-centers http://www.onlinetech.com/company/news/2016-press-releases/online-tech-announces-next-generation-cloud-at-michigan-and-indiana-data-centers Ann Arbor, Michigan – June 23, 2016 – Online Tech is pleased to announce its Indiana and Michigan cloud infrastructure is now running an all-flash, encrypted array based on hardware solutions by Pure Storage. This investment will provide businesses in the Midwest region with an ultra-fast, secure, and scalable enterprise-class local cloud that organizations can trust with their mission-critical applications and manage their growing Big Data needs.

The new flash technology, previously only available to large enterprises, gives Online Tech’s cloud hosting clients 80 Gb/s bandwidth and more than 400,000 IOPS performance. With encryption built in to the hardware, this storage solution provides the data security that their clients demand with no impact to performance and without the hassle of key management.

“We’re thrilled at the new capabilities and security that encrypted flash technology has brought to our cloud infrastructure," said Jason Yaeger, Online Tech Senior Director, Solutions Architecture. "This isn’t your average cloud using single component hosts that you see at the large public providers. Our architecture protects our clients against hardware component failure, which saves them from having to purchase additional servers and load balance them. You automatically get hardware component failure protection.”

Online Tech’s cloud architecture is built on the no-single-point-of-failure infrastructure of their enterprise-class data centers. With redundant controllers, switches, routers, generators, UPS, and HVAC systems, all critical equipment is at least N+1, allowing for the reliability of service that few companies can afford to provide.

Advomas Partners with Online Tech for Secure Cloud Hosting http://www.onlinetech.com/company/news/2016-press-releases/advomas-partners-with-online-tech-for-secure-cloud-hosting http://www.onlinetech.com/company/news/2016-press-releases/advomas-partners-with-online-tech-for-secure-cloud-hosting Online Tech Provides IT-as-a-Service for Advomas

Ann Arbor, Michigan, March 31, 2016 — Online Tech is pleased to announced that it has been selected as the cloud provider of choice for Advomas, a leader in the healthcare insurance industry. For 30 years, Advomas, a Michigan-based healthcare eligibility company, has helped providers secure health insurance coverage for uninsured patients.

In 2015, Advomas was looking for a partner with extensive knowledge of HITECH & HIPAA security standards. After vetting numerous data hosting partners to relocate its existing data center, Advomas selected Online Tech because of its reputation and expertise in healthcare information security. As Advomas continues to partner with providers and health plans on a national level, having the highest level of security around patient health information is at the top of its priority list.

“Our core business model is to help people,” said Jennifer Knight, president of Advomas. “Our clients entrust their patients to us to secure the highest source of payment on the patient’s behalf. We chose a partner with a strong reputation that we knew we could trust with an information security core competency that complements our fundamental business practices. We feel that our selection of Online Tech shows our commitment to safety and data security of the patients we advocate for.”

Advomas is moving its entire IT infrastructure to the cloud by the beginning of the third quarter of this year with redundancy locations in both Michigan and Indiana. This is one of many steps Advomas has completed to ensure compliance with state and federal laws surrounding patient health information and privacy.

"Advomas is doing a tremendous service to uninsured patients and we are thrilled to be able to help them carry out their mission," said Jason Yaeger, Senior Director of Solutions Architecture. "Our Fortune 500™ infrastructure will provide them with the data security and availability their patients demand."

Online Tech has been independently audited with 100% compliance of the Health and Human Services HIPAA standards. Keeping with their culture of compliance, Online Tech also regularly reports against HIPAA, PCI DSS, SSAE 16/SOC 1, and SOC 2 safeguards. With annual audits, Online Tech continually evaluates and strengthens safeguard measures and provides the complete documentation to our clients.

OT Disaster Recovery as a Service Available Now

Ann Arbor, Mich. – January 26, 2016 – Online Tech announced today the release of its latest business continuity service, OT Disaster Recovery as a Service (OT DRaaS). The new product, OT DRaaS, offers shorter recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO) for clients that are now measured in minutes, versus previous recovery times of hours to days.

“Disaster Recovery has been a thorny hurdle throughout most of my career running large-scale enterprise infrastructure," said Nick Lumsden, Online Tech's Vice President of Technology and Product Strategy. "Cold sites can take too long for critical applications. Hot sites can increase costs by two to three times the capital and operating expenditure of the primary site. And warm failover has historically been very difficult to orchestrate. That’s why we are so excited about our new DRaaS offering – it makes having a warm recovery site so easy for our clients to use.”

As an added service to Online Tech's existing backup offering, OT DRaaS offers better control of testing and recovery practices through test alerts and the monitoring of results, improving recovery practices and compliance testing. In addition to access and analytics, clients will also greatly benefit from better integration into their client portal, providing additional control in testing environments and clearer insights into their servers and recovery.

"This is a huge benefit for our clients, because our new offering grows our disaster recovery solution tenfold," said Yan Ness, CEO of Online Tech. "Instead of just cold site offering, we now can combine our two cloud locations and dozens of managed services for any client to offer warm and, eventually, hot DR. We will be making DR as easy as offsite backup with failover measured in minutes, not hours.”

The fully managed disaster recovery service comes with the full backing of the Online Tech support team which is always ready to help configure, test, and initiate a failover. Visit www.onlinetech.com/products/disaster-recovery-as-a-service for more information.

Online Tech wins eighth consecutive Fast Track award

Jason Yaeger accepts the Fast Track
award for Online Tech

Ann Arbor, MI - Online Tech accepted its eight Fast Track award from Ann Arbor SPARK on Friday evening, only one of two companies to share the achievement eight consecutive times in as many years. The Fast Track award is granted to qualifying Washtenaw County businesses who demonstrate continuous growth of over 20% year over year for three consecutive years.

 Founded in 1994 as one of the area’s first internet providers, Online Tech has celebrated over 20% annual growth since 2003 when CEO Yan Ness led new ownership and encouraged significant investment into creating the area’s most-trusted IT infrastructure partner. Now considered an industry leader in secure, compliant enterprise hosting & cloud services, Online Tech grew to four data center locations in Michigan and expanded into Indiana with the opening of a state-of-the-art facility in the heart of downtown Indianapolis in 2014.

 “The landscape is littered with companies who couldn’t survive the paradigm shift from dial-up to fiber; web hosting to the cloud; or servers to data centers. We’ve not just survived, but thrived in that changing environment by quickly developing outstanding new products that deliver an exceptional experience. 75% of what we sell today the industry didn’t offer 3 years ago. That’s a tough environment to thrive in and so it’s something we are very proud of achieving,” said Yan Ness, CEO of Online Tech.

 “The FastTrack awards are proof positive that this region has the right assets in place to fuel successful businesses,” said Paul Krutko, president and CEO, Ann Arbor SPARK. “These growing companies are creating jobs, attracting investment, and improving our region’s economy, and the impact is undeniable: Job growth in Washtenaw has consistently outpaced the nation’s and the state’s. In the last five years, jobs here have grown by seven percent, compared to four percent in Michigan and three percent in the country.”

 “Ann Arbor has been our home for 20 years. The local support from the community for candidates, clients, vendors and even financing has been instrumental to our success," added Ness.

 Online Tech currently has five locations throughout Michigan and Indiana offering cloud, colocation, offsite backup and disaster recovery services. From healthcare and financial services to retail, SaaS and other regulated fields, Online Tech’s services cover a wide array of business verticals, while continuously improving its offered services with enhancements including one of the country’s first all-flash cloud that meets key regulatory compliance.
