BlOOMFIELD HILLS, Michigan – March 23, 2009 – Netstar Corporation, a full service computer solutions provider, announced today their agreement with Online Tech Inc. to add Online Tech’s colocation and data center services to its set of technology solutions.
Online Tech, Michigan’s largest independent data center operator, has been looking to expand its reach on the national level with full service providers that need to integrate outsourced data center capabilities into their solutions. As Online Tech and Netstar worked together over the last year to deliver a number of successful customer installations, a reseller partnership became obvious.
“With IT trends driving outsourcing applications and infrastructure to more cost effective providers, we saw a natural partnership between Netstar and Online Tech.” said Mike Klein, President of Online Tech. “Netstar has a staff of full-time technical engineers that are dedicated to delivering outsourced IT solutions to enterprises across the country. Offering data center colocation to their hardware and software mix is a logical extension towards offering a complete outsourced solution.”
Colocation is the commonly used term for outsourcing data center functions to a multi-tenant data center operator like Online Tech. Colocation can offer significant cost savings over in- house data centers because the infrastructure costs, IT expertise, and capital expenses can be amortized over hundreds of clients.
“As our customers are looking for more complete outsourced solution, partnering with a world-class data center operator like Online Tech made strategic sense to us” said Jim Marx,Vice President of Netstar. “We can offer an electronic backup, colocation and disaster recovery solutions to our clients without any significant capital investments required for the data center upgrades.”
Both Netstar and Online Tech have been in business for 15 years, based in Michigan and both companies have a national business footprint. The new partnership allows both companies to help clients integrate the most effective solution for their company’s server systems, software, storage, networking, peripherals and data center services such as colocation, and disaster recovery needed to safely manage and share information now and in the future.
