Print and Electronic Document Provider Lowers Risks of Ceasing Critical Business Operations with Disaster Recovery Plan
Online PR News – 01-March-2011 – – Ancor, a premier outsourcing provider of customized print and electronic document services, has recently partnered with Online Tech, a Midwest data center operator for IT disaster recovery facilities and services. Ancor is the parent company for two other service organizations, Utilitec and HealthLOGIX.
Disaster recovery is becoming necessary for business survival as companies become more dependent on their data and IT infrastructure to run their business. Ancor realizes the risks that IT system failure or data loss would pose to the viability of their business as well as their customers’ business.
For example, if Ancor’s IT systems were to fail longer than one day, their automotive customers would quickly be effected and potentially shut down automotive plants across the country. For Utilitec customers, downtime would have a direct effect on generating revenue. The billing cycles for the Utilitec customer base are generally set up to manage a 20 day cash cycle. If Utilitec experienced an interruption to their IT infrastructure and could not print the utility bills on time, our utility companies would immediately realize cash flow problems.
The risks of IT failure not only impacts business operations and generating revenue, but also could cause failure to comply with mandatory regulations. If HealthLOGIX was unable to process healthcare cards or EOB statements on time for their insurance providers, they could be in violation of federal regulations.
Ancor dramatically lowers these risks and enhances its disaster recovery capabilities by mirroring all of their data, batch files, and web accessible customer data to Online Tech’s top-notch data center facility located in Flint, Mich. In the event Ancor’s on-site data center is compromised, they can resume operations from Online Tech’s Tier III data center.
“We were very impressed with Online Tech’s state-of-the-art Flint data center facility,” says Dave Bartkowiak, Executive Director of Operations for Ancor. Online Tech offers a unique disaster recovery solution to companies like Ancor, who operate their own data center but desire a secondary data center site for disaster recovery. Online Tech has multiple data centers located on different power grids to offer high availability power and network solutions with no single point of failure – assuring a very high level of server uptime.
“With many of our partners relying on their IT infrastructure and data for their business survival, Online Tech understands the necessity of providing disaster recovery for their critical, real-time applications,” says Mike Klein, Online Tech Chief Operating Officer.
