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.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
