Fleetilla and Online Tech Sign SaaS Hosting Agreement
Trenton, MI (PRWEB) January 16, 2010
In a recent interview with Pradeep Kumar, CEO of Fleetilla, a GPS tracking and fleet management hardware and software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider, he explained the need for SaaS providers to have a reliable data center partner to consistently and successfully deliver mission critical applications to customers. Having experience with many of the issues and challenges related to data centers, he found Online Tech’s robust data center infrastructure and proactive support to be a welcome relief.
Fleet management and GPS tracking are mission critical applications that demand high availability and 24×7 uptime. “How can you do business if you don’t know where your most valuable assets are?” Kumar posed. “Our customers demand a service that is always online and always safe”.
Fleetilla delivers real-time asset location and usage data for fleet operators ranging from large courier services to small floral shops. The solution integrates multiple carrier connectivity, wireless data, remote mobile device management, mapping/GIS, fleet management and reporting. With a global customer base and deployments throughout North America, the Caribbean, West Africa, Europe and New Zealand, Fleetilla’s solutions require 24 hours a day, 7 days a week server hosting to deliver superior customer service and reduce fleet expenses.
As Fleetilla explored ways to continually provide state-of-the-art solutions to the rapidly emerging telematics, M2M and smart metering segments, the similarity between Online Tech, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) company and Fleetilla, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company became apparent: they both have critical assets that their customers depend on – their products, solutions and platforms are integrated into the core, day-to-day business processes of a diverse group of businesses around the world.
As part of the agreement, Online Tech is hosting many of Fleetilla’s fleet management and telematics systems and applications under a SaaS model in two of its top tier data centers designed with redundant power and network infrastructures to eliminate the risk of an outage. The two data centers sit on separate power grids, an uncommon advantage among data center operators. In addition, offsite data back up is also provided using a private fiber network as part of Online Tech’s disaster recovery services.
“We have customers all over the world who depend on our solution. Over the years we have hosted our servers at different colocation providers and I can say without any reservation that Online Tech’s world class data center and proactive customer support are unparalleled to any other hosting provider we’ve used in the past” says Kumar.
“Software-as-a-Service is quickly becoming the preferred delivery model for software, as seen by Fleetilla’s rapid growth” said Mike Klein, President of Online Tech. “Fleetilla is a great example how a SaaS company can focus on building on its innovative business solution, by partnering with a professional colocation partner that eliminates the cost and overhead of managing a reliable, highly available data center infrastructure.“
Online Tech helps SaaS companies like Fleetilla focus on their core business by eliminating the hassle of managing their servers. Online Tech delivers simple, cost-effective SaaS hosting packages that make it easy to outsource IT server management.
