Online Tech announced the opening of its first Indianapolis data center in early October. The company acquired the Indiana data center in May and is investing $10 million into improving it.
The purpose-built facility will support 3 MW of electrical load and will be able to guarantee uptime by delivering a fully redundant power infrastructure. To ensure resiliency, energy is brought in through two separate utility feeds. The Indianapolis data center features 16,000 square feet of raised floor space as well as access to a high concentration of fiber.
The Indiana data center is the first in the state to offer secure and compliant cloud computing solutions for customers. The facility, Online Tech’s fifth Midwest data center, is 44,000 square feet and offers cloud, colocation and disaster recovery services. The Indianapolis data center meets compliance requirements from multiple industries, including HIPAA, PCI and SOX, providing Indiana customers with security that was previously only available outside the region.
“Indianapolis is the thirteenth-largest city in the United States – even larger than San Francisco – and we believe its businesses are underserved by secure cloud computing providers,” said Mike Klein, Co-CEO of Online Tech. “The city’s large population of healthcare companies must ensure that all patient data remains safe and HIPAA compliant, which fits well with our healthcare IT focus and expertise. Indianapolis also has a growing community of financial, retail, e-commerce and software businesses.”
Online Tech currently operates more than 100,000 square feet of space across four Michigan data centers, enabling the company to provide customers in other markets with disaster recovery solutions.
