Ovid Technologies, Inc., National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) and Flysheet Information Services, Inc. have announced the establishment of a new Ovid Regional Data Center (RDC) in Taiwan, Republic of China. The RDC will be hosted by NCTU and Flysheet Information Services, based in HsinChu. Ovid's new data center will support customers in Taiwan with plans to support additional Asia Pacific markets. This is the fourth Ovid RDC, the second outside North America, and is a mirror of Ovid data centers in Salt Lake City, Utah; Boston, Massachusetts; and Manchester, England.
The new facility is intended to provide clinicians, researchers, and healthcare professionals with fast, reliable, and continuous access to Ovid's collection of medical and health sciences journals, books, and databases, including its products Journals@Ovid and Books@Ovid. With local server access, customers can expect increased speed and reliability, retrieval of current content and up-to-date tools, and reduced server downtime. Additionally, built-in redundancy will allow the service to remain available during maintenance and scheduled downtimes.
