Online Tech, a provider of cloud hosting and colocation services, headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has opened its first data center in downtown Indianapolis today. The 44,000 square foot data center facility provides Indiana companies multi-compliant and secured options for cloud, colocation and disaster recovery infrastructure.
The Indianapolis data center is Online Tech‘s fifth colocation and cloud facility in the Midwest. The company is investing $10 million into the data center, which it acquired in May. The new data center will also create up to 25 permanent jobs for local IT, sales and data center professionals.
While suitable for any business with IT systems, Online Tech‘s data centers meet the strictest standards of security and are compliant with regulations including HIPAA, PCI and SOX.
“We saw a gap in secure cloud and data center infrastructure serving Indiana,” said Mike Klein, co-CEO of Online Tech. “Our culture of compliance drives us to invest in annual, independent audits of how we protect the most sensitive financial, health and personal information. It’s not a checkbox for us, and our clients appreciate that we provide our complete audit documentation to help address their own requirements.”
