Our History

25 years of superior people, partnership and service.

Launched as Online Technologies Corporation in 1994 as a dial-up internet company, we rapidly evolved into data center hosting and colocation services. Next, we added Disaster Recovery as a Service and PCI and HIPAA compliant-cloud services to become one of the first 100% HIPAA compliant hosting provider in the US.

In 2018, we gained new investment partners in Schurz Communications, a media and telecommunications company based in South Bend, Ind. Later that same year, we acquired the global cloud infrastructure assets of Neverfail, and in 2021, acquired Denver-based NewCloud Networks.

With every transition and acquisition, we’ve strengthened and expanded our global footprint as a channel-centric cloud computing and IT service provider, building a broad portfolio of data security and fully managed IT services championed by our legendary support team.

In 2019, we became Otava. For us, the name “Otava” has a couple symbolic meanings: First, it can mean to take your note up an octave–to go higher. Or, in Finnish, it refers to one of the largest and brightest constellation in the night sky. Either way, Otava perfectly represents our client promise to push the envelope further, and continuously raise the bar in cloud computing services and data security.
