ANN ARBOR, MICH, – November 15, 2006 – Online Tech, a leading data center operator and managed services company, announces today the addition of Compendia Biosciences, Inc. of Ann Arbor, Michigan to its rapidly growing and diversified portfolio of customers.
Online Technologies will provide Compendia with dedicated servers, application and database hosting and managed services that include configuring sub-networks with firewalls, data backups, server monitoring, and a managed VPN out of its world class data center facility located in Flint, Michigan.
“Compendia chose Online Technologies because of the company’s reputation for reliability, responsiveness to customers and ability to provide dedicated servers and a full range of managed Internet services from a local data center. Further, we avoided the large capital outlay required if we were to attempt to equip our own enterprise class data facility,” said Daniel Rhodes, Compendia co-founder and chief technology officer.
“As a leader in data driven statistical analysis in the health care industry,” continued Rhodes, “Compendia Biosciences needed a reliable, secure, and scalable solution. We contracted with Online Technologies to handle our complex hosting structure which freed us up to concentrate on our data delivery services for our customers. Importantly, as our business continues to grow, we can easily and quickly scale our computing infrastructure with Online Technologies.”
“We were able to meet Compendia’s business objectives based on our extensive expertise, strong technical resources and solid data center facility,” said Ty Myers, Online Technologies’ vice president of sales. “To keep pace with the changing, demanding and ‘always on’ business requirements of operating a high availability enterprise data center, it is imperative that our technology infrastructure be secure and available. Online Technologies provides our customers with data center services that improve reliability, lower costs, and maximize internal resources while keeping an organization’s valuable information technology assets close to the business. We combine our network of world-class data centers and portfolio of managed services with localized engineering and support to serve market-leading companies,” Myers concluded.
