  • Ann Arbor, MI (1888PressRelease) May 26, 2011 - Michigan Multispecialty Physicians (MMP), a specialty group of surgical physicians, has selected Online Tech, a premier Midwest managed data center provider, for colocation services and offsite data storage and backup.

    As companies grow, information technology departments are faced with the challenge of growing their data center(s) with limited budgets and IT resources. Eventually data center operators are faced with the decision of upgrading their existing data centers, constructing a new data center, or simply outsourcing to a managed data center provider. This was the case for MMP.

    "We were feeling the pains of a growing company and outstripping our data center capacity. We were facing electrical, heating and cooling issues as well as running out of physical space," says Erik Yochum, Director of Information Technology for MMP.

    By outsourcing their data center to Online Tech, MMP has experienced an ROI increase on internal IT resources and the added benefit of having access to an experienced and professional support team. Yochum states that their IT staff costs are reduced by eliminating overtime or off hour compensation associated with supporting a data center 24/7. MMP can also keep up with new technology without the additional hardware investment.

    "Now the space used for the data center can be used for other productive uses for the organization," notes Yochum.

    By outsourcing to Online Tech, MMP upgraded to a Tier 3 data center with fully redundant power, network infrastructure and adequate heating and cooling. MMP chose Online Tech's high availability power architecture with no single point of failure in power delivery - assuring a high level of server uptime. Online Tech also delivers HIPAA compliant hosting with all of the physical and network security features required to assure that a medical health organization can comply with the HIPAA privacy requirements.
