Online Tech’s Managed Dedicated Servers Support High Weekend and Holy Day Website Traffic
Online PR News – 26-October-2010 – – Mass Times has recently selected Online Tech as their managed data center partner. The Mass Times ministry, based in Boston, manages www.masstimes.org, a multi-language website that provides locations and worship times for over 110,000 churches worldwide. Catholics that are outside of their diocesan boundaries are able to search for mass times and map locations using the internet and wireless devices.
The website contains the shared database (On-Line Catholic Church Directory) that is updated approximately 100 times day by 12,000 parishes and 25 dioceses and members. Making sure that the website is always available, and protected from external attacks, is critical according to Bob Hummel, Founder and Owner of Mass Times.org. By partnering with Online Tech, Mass Times’ can leverage high-availability, fully managed dedicated servers with around-the-clock server monitoring and 24x7 hands on support for any issue that might arise. Mass Times also colocates their equipment in Online Tech’s data centers, and uses Online Tech’s managed services to monitor and manage it.
“We have found that 70% of our traffic is on weekends and Holy Days are 50 times more active than an average week day,” says Hummel. So, MassTimes.org needed to find a managed data center partner with 24x7x365 uptime and support, especially on weekends and holidays.
“We recognize that our clients, and their customers, need the assurance that their servers are always available, regardless of the day or time. We take the time to know and understand our clients, so that we are better able to respond to their needs. With Mass Times, this means understanding that weekends and holidays have a special impact to them. Knowing this helps us to be a more informed, helpful partner when they need us,” says Mike Klein, President of Online Tech.
