Michigan data center operator Online Tech will be exhibiting a range of secure hosting solutions for mission critical applications, including cloud hosting, colocation, managed servers, compliant hosting and disaster recovery, at the Midwest Technology Leaders 2013 symposium for IT executives and CIOs held in Detroit, Michigan.
Online Tech’s Director of Operations, Jason Yaeger, participated in a rapid fire Q&A session this morning at the Midwest Technology Leaders conference in Plymouth, Michigan. Matt Roush introduced Online Tech as being a long time home of innovation in the state of Michigan. Jason discussed how Online Tech has managed innovation in client relations and private cloud environments:
Online Tech has taken the initiative to communicate and understand what our clients’ pain points are. We recognize that your business requires uptime 24/7. After looking across the industry and acknowledging the frustration that comes with a lack of communication, Online Tech has now developed an Emergency Notification Systems that goes out to our clients within seconds of any outage.
Online Tech is Michigan’s most trusted provider of private cloud environments. We recognize that 75% of companies will be outsourcing to the private cloud environment in the next couple of years, with 25% of companies already there. Online Tech is making the selling process of those environments easier on our clients.
