Transportation Management Software as a Service (SaaS) Company Chooses United States Data Center.
Online PR News – 16-July-2010 – – Sylectus, a leading provider of advanced software technology for moving freight and managing business online, has chosen to cross international borders for their SaaS server colocation needs with Online Tech, a premier Michigan colocation and managed server company.
With over 400 transportation carriers using Sylectus’ Software as a Service (SaaS) transportation dispatch software, Sylectus needed to select a data center that could offer high availability for their IT disaster recovery solution.
Sylectus utilizes Online Tech’s colocation services for a real-time, online server backup, to create an IT disaster recovery site for their facilities in Windsor, Ontario. Sylectus pushes backup data of their transactions every minute to Online Tech’s Avis data center facility located in Ann Arbor, Mich.
According to Ed de Leon, Sylectus VP of Information Technology, it has proven to be a good decision because of the improved technical support and uptime server performance. “Online Tech is exceeding our demands. We have seen no increase in our monthly costs compared to our previous provider, but have received much better service and support,” states de Leon.
Although the Avis center location is physically further than their old backup facility, Sylectus felt it was worth the change. “The further separation we have between our data centers reduces the risk of a major disaster knocking out both locations. Our customers gain a certain comfort level knowing their data is available and accessible, in real time, at any time from either location,” says de Leon.
