Online Tech Launches Secure, Online Data Storage

Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) June 16, 2009 -- Online Tech, Michigan's largest managed data center operator, has launched OTVault, a new online data storage product designed for secure, high volume online backup and archiving for businesses.Online Tech, long preaching to the market that data is as valuable as money for most businesses, now offers another way for businesses to protect their valuable data. OTVault is an easy, cost effective solution for backing up servers or archiving data from any location into a secure, SAS 70 certified data center.Online Tech leveraged the industry trends of declining Internet and storage costs, along with its high availability SAS70 certified data center, to introduce a new price point in the market for high volume, multi-terabyte online data storage. Designed as an easy first step for disaster recovery, businesses can map the online storage to their in house servers and use their current backup software to write backups and send critical data at Online Tech's SAS70 certified data centers.OTVault is not targeted at consumers, laptops, or desktop backups. The product is designed specifically for server backups requiring 100 Gigabytes to 10 Terabytes of online storage. Unlike Mozy, or other low end solutions that limit upload speeds to limit the amount of backup data which can be transferred each day, OTVault starts with over 50 Gigabytes of data transfer per day and can be upgraded to higher speeds.Memsic, Inc. of Andover Massachusetts - a producer of sensor technologies - found that OTVault provides them with the online data storage they needed for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. "With OTVault, our data is securely sent to SAS 70 certified data centers with redundant fail-safe systems. We found OTVault to be a cost effective option for our disaster recovery " said Cheryl Merino, a Manager at Memsic. OTVault starts at $199 for 100 GB and $99 for each additional 100 GB. This price point makes it a cost effective alternative to traditional tape backup which has high failure rates, physical security risks, and slow data recovery times. OTVault overcomes these problems and eliminates the costs of tapes, hardware maintenance, offsite tape delivery and storage, and the personnel costs to manage the tape rotations.With the launch, Online Tech is offering an OTVault trial free for 15 days.
