Online Tech, a Great Lakes based provider of cloud hosting and colocation services, has acquired a 44,000 square foot data center in Indianapolis. Online Tech’s purchase of the property, planned upgrades, and an enterprise-grade cloud hosting environment represents an investment of more than $10 million.
Online Tech‘s 44,000 square foot data center design will support three MW of electrical load and 16,000 square feet of raised floor space. The data center will deliver a fully redundant power infrastructure to ensure uptime, fed by two separate utility feeds that guarantee resiliency.
The data center also accesses a high concentration of fiber optics. The purpose-built data center facility will deliver the company’s full product line of compliant cloud hosting and colocation services for healthcare, financial services, retail and other companies in regulated industries.
Five data centers
“Indianapolis is the thirteenth largest city in the United States — even larger than San Francisco — and we believe its businesses are underserved by secure cloud hosting providers,” said Mike Klein, Co-CEO of Online Tech. “The city’s large population of healthcare companies must ensure that all patient data remains safe and HIPAA compliant, which fits well with our healthcare IT focus and expertise. Indianapolis also has a growing community of financial, retail, e-commerce and software businesses. They will all benefit from having an enterprise-class, secure, compliant cloud right in Indiana.”
Online Tech’s new Indianapolis colocation and cloud hosting facility will be the fifth data center in its portfolio. The company currently has more than 100,000 square feet in four data centers in Michigan. With more than 300 miles now between data centers, Online Tech will also be able to support customers in other markets that need disaster recovery and back up services across state lines, and want significant geographic separation between sites.
