INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 12/09/10 -- TZ Limited's wholly owned subsidiary, Telezygology, Inc. (TZI) and its Infrastructure Protection operating business unit announce the completion of the first North American installation of the TZ Centurion micro-protection platform complete with TZ Centurion Server control software for BlueLock, an experienced provider of cloud hosting and managed IT services. The TZ Centurion platform was installed in the largest of BlueLock's SAS-70 Type II data centers -- the center of hosting solutions for many of BlueLock's global clients in the financial services, pharmaceutical, technology and education sectors.
"As a certified VMware vCloud Datacenter Services provider, we've worked diligently to incorporate security into every aspect of our cloud hosting services," said Mike Durham, Director of Quality, BlueLock. "Security is a top concern of nearly every client when they evaluate cloud computing solutions and we make sure we have the systems in place that meet the stringent level of physical and operational security they require. The TZ Centurion platform provides that level of security and protection right down to the cabinet level and to the critical IT assets within."
BlueLock was recently ranked 37th in Lead411's Technology 500 List of 2010 -- recognized as one of the fastest growing tech companies in the United States. The amazing growth of the company prompted a real need for a highly compatible data center security solution that could keep pace with continual expansion.
"Currently our largest data center houses 28 racks with the capacity to house 100 racks, which we anticipate reaching very quickly," said Durham. "We looked at several security and micro-protection options available, but none offered the level of cost-effective scalability that the TZ Centurion platform provides. With the quick growth that we have experienced over the past two years, we cannot afford to run into any scalability obstacles."
In addition to addressing their need for scalability, the TZ Centurion platform also satisfied BlueLock's requirements for system compatibility.
"Cloud hosting is at the core of the BlueLock business," stated Durham. "The fact that the TZ Centurion platform is compatible with a cloud environment enabled us to easily integrate the new technology into our data center. We look forward to seeing TZ Centurion platform extensions and new releases of TZ Centurion Server functional software modules as we continue to expand our data center facilities."
"Our TZ Centurion Server software modules, which run on a Microsoft® platform, will provide BlueLock with the capability to plan, monitor and analyze human traffic down to the server level, and at the same time give real time visibility on the environmental conditions and power consumption around these IT assets," added Maarten van Duijn, Vice President of TZ Infrastructure Protection, Inc. "The BlueLock installation is another great example of how we provide our customers with full control over their physical IT assets."
BlueLock, a certified VMware vCloud Datacenter Services provider, delivers enterprise-class cloud computing and managed IT services, offering the people, expertise and IT infrastructure in world-class, SAS-70 Type II certified data centers. By leveraging VMware technology, BlueLock is able to provide hosted virtual data centers to the enterprise that are fully compatible with their existing VMware investments, enabling their hybrid cloud strategy.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
