Ann Arbor-based Online Tech Inc. will host another educational cloud computing seminar at NextEnergy and TechTown in Detroit on Tuesday, June 21.

The five-hour seminar will provide information about cloud computing and the strategic implications for IT decision makers related to IT resources, compliance, security, disaster recovery, and high availability.

“We’re watching companies reinvent their entire IT infrastructure to facilitate rapid business growth, better service availability for their clients, and far more robust disaster recovery and high availability, systems,” said Mike Klein, president of Online Tech. “We see cloud computing providing a strategic edge for our clients every day. We want to make sure every business in Michigan has the opportunity to learn how they can benefit from cloud computing.”

Industry experts from UHY Advisors, VMWare, High Bit Security, ATMP, and Online Tech will be on hand to share their knowledge. The morning presentations will be given to the entire group in the NextEnergy auditorium. Then, interactive breakout sessions from noon until 2 p.m. will dive into cloud computing compliance and backup-disaster recovery considerations. Businesses have the opportunity to submit their company for a workshop format analysis by the team of experts in a special panel discussion.

Richard Vincent of IC Datacom was instrumental in the choice of the TechTown and NextEnergy locations. IC Datacom, a company in TechTown, was looking for a flexible platform for offering communication services throughout the TechTown facilities for companies based there. When Vincent attended Online Tech’s March seminar earlier this year, he won a managed cloud server. Vincent and the development team at IC Datacom have been pleased with the results of testing the managed cloud servers as a possible platform for providing their IT services.

“After hearing what cloud computing could offer our clients, I knew we had to test it out for ourselves,” said Vincent. “We’re excited to be part of a cloud computing seminar at TechTown that can help other business understand the value of cloud computing.”
