TZ Infrastructure Protection Installs TZ Centurion(TM) in BlueLock's SAS-70 Type II Certified Data Center

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."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
