Online Tech Expands Flint Twp. Data Center

ANN ARBOR (WWJ) -- Online Tech Inc. said this week that it has completed a $3 million expansion of its mid-Michigan data center in Flint Township.

Online Tech says the expansion supports the rapidly growing number of customers that rely on its encrypted, compliant data center services.

The expansion doubled the overall capacity of the data center in terms of both physical space and power, allowing the company to support a large number of new clients and existing clients whose needs are growing.

The expansion boasts a total of 22,500 square feet and includes the addition of two new 1-megawatt generators. This brings the data center's total backup power to 4 megawatts, ensuring availability and redundancy that will meet Online Tech's stringent service level agreements with customers.

"Online Tech is growing rapidly, and this multi-million dollar investment in our Flint data center is the latest step we have taken to expand our mission critical facilities to support customers," said Online Tech co-CEO Mike Klein. "This follows quickly on the heels of our Metro Detroit data center announcement a few weeks ago, and we plan to make additional data center announcements in the near future about Online Tech's expansion to other Midwest markets."

Added Online Tech's other co-CEO, Yan Ness: "These aren't just investments in buildings. These are investments in our customers who rely on our secure cloud and colo (colocation) services for their critical operations and to ensure that they are compliant. This investment in Flint and our expansion into other markets is positioning Online Tech as the go-to provider of secure, compliant cloud and colo services in the Midwest."
