Online Tech's Westland Data Center Opens

ANN ARBOR — The Ann Arbor-based data center services provider Online Tech Inc. announced that its latest data center in Westland is open for business.

The 34,500-square-foot stand-alone data center, a former Sprint-Nextel building, will include a total of 18,000 square feet of 24-inch raised floor space, which will be opened in three phases.

The carrier-neutral data center has two physically separate entry points for fiber optic cable, and will offer fiber connectivity from eight different telecommunications providers. Speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second will be available to customers on demand.

The load capacity of the building will be 1.2 megawatts. There are three 500,000-watt generators installed with 2,000-gallon fuel tanks and flywheels to handle the few seconds between grid outage and generator power.

The data center also recently was successfully independently audited for HIPAA, PCI, SOX and Safe Harbor compliance to ensure full scale data center security.

The company plans to make six to eight hires over the coming 12 months. Those interested in reviewing available positions with the company should visit

Online Tech offers a range of data center services, from basic and managed colocation, to managed dedicated servers, encrypted cloud computing, and disaster recovery.
