Winston Salem, NC (PRWEB) October 27, 2008
Winston-Salem, N.C. (PRWEB) October 27, 2008 -- DataChambers, a North Carolina-based technology firm, today announced it is providing Optcapital LLC with information technology services that are delivering a significant competitive edge.
Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Optcapital provides deferred compensation plan administration services to hedge fund managers, trial attorneys and Fortune 1000 businesses. Optcapital recently selected DataChambers to host its production computer systems, including the infrastructure and servers that provide Optcapital clients with Web-based access to account information. DataChambers engineers monitor Optcapital's network around-the-clock so that any potential problems can be detected and resolved before they impact client services.
The continuous oversight DataChambers provides was instrumental in Optcapital's recent deal to administer the deferred compensation plan for a $10 billion dollar hedge fund.
"One of the key selection criteria involved our technology," said Thom Young, managing partner, Optcapital LLC. "After a day-long presentation on Optcapital's people and platform, followed by a thorough discussion of the capabilities DataChambers provides to us, the fund fast-tracked its decision to use Optcapital as its plan administrator."
Hedge fund executives appreciate the commitment that both Optcapital and DataChambers have made to SAS 70 Type II certification -- the rigorous national standards that govern how information technology companies should safeguard client systems and data.
"SAS 70 Type II compliance is like a 'Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval' in the information technology world," said Nicholas Kottyan, CEO of DataChambers. "Auditors examine internal controls, physical and electronic security systems, disaster recovery plans and even customer service initiatives. Both Optcapital and DataChambers passed the extensive testing process with flying colors."
As part of its contract with Optcapital, DataChambers houses the company's systems in a highly secure, blast-resistant facility 18 feet underground. Engineers manage and monitor all the equipment in Optcapital's network, whether it is hosted locally or based at remote client sites. They also provide regular backups, archive email, scan messages for viruses and spam, and deliver desktop support to the company's nationwide client base.
DataChambers meets the demand of small and medium businesses for stable, secure, long-range information management and business continuity capabilities. The company specializes in electronic data storage, network and monitoring solutions, managed information technology solutions, co-location services, secure tape vaulting, and offsite records storage and management.
