When Online Tech opened its Indiana Data Center earlier this year, co-CEO Mike Klein said the company “saw a gap in secure cloud and data center infrastructure serving Indiana.” That gap continued to be filled when Online Tech launched its new and improved cloud infrastructure in mid-December, creating the only truly PCI, HIPAA and SOX-compliant cloud in Indianapolis. The enterprise-level cloud is built on EMC XtremIO all-flash array technology that offers clients faster application response times while increasing reliability and …

Indianapolis greeted us with perfect blue sky and unseasonably warm fall weather last Thursday.

For small- and medium-sized businesses, the cost is even more staggering: 70 percent of companies with fewer than 100 employees that experience a catastrophic …

Offsite backup: a necessary evil that can be unreliable, hard to track and expensive to support. We know; it’s not what you got into technology for. Nonetheless, the business depends on putting mission-critical data offsite for those just-in-case moments of disaster. The problem is, most “disasters” tend to be a single file that someone accidentally deleted or that got corrupted somewhere along the email chain.
