As Part D Advisors began to grow the last few years, so did the demands of their IT department. According to Andrew Madonna, Vice President of Information Technology, they were outgrowing their data center with new applications and an increase of data being transferred. The company decided to partner with a SSAE 16 and SAS 70 data center for their colocation hosting, data backup, archiving, and disaster recovery.
“Our partnership with Online Tech gives us the confidence that our data and applications are always available and secure,” says Madonna. “As a high end service provider, we feel confident that we are providing the data security and application availability required by HIPAA with Online Tech.”
By selecting Online Tech’s SSAE 16 and SAS 70 data centers, Part D Advisors has access to secure hosting without expending precious capital to build out additional data center space. The SAS 70 and SSAE 16 audit reports give clients the peace of mind that their data and servers are safe, secure and audited to be in compliance with HIPAA hosting standards.
Part D Advisors benefits from Online Tech’s high availability Michigan data centers that provide uninterruptible power and network connection with no single point of failure. Online Tech’s data centers, uniquely located 53 miles apart, are interconnected with dedicated Gigabit fiber for Internet traffic failover and routing of backup and disaster recovery data between data centers.
Part D Advisors is also confident that Online Tech is a data center that will grow with them. Over the past year, Part D Advisors has increased their throughput 3 times and added more space. “Online Tech has a good, reliable platform that can grow as your requirements expand,” says Madonna.
