BRIDGETOWN, BARBADOS and ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- Columbus International Inc.(Columbus), and Ocean Networks Inc., announced today that the companies have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for a Landing Party Agreement for a Panama submarine cable station and related network services.
Ocean Networks is the owner and developer of the South America Pacific Link (SAPL) submarine cable system. The company's planned 9,700 km trans-Pacific cable interconnects Balboa, Panama to Oahu, Hawaii. Under terms of the partnership, Columbus Networks, working through the recently formed alliance company with Cable & Wireless, CNL-CWC Networks, Inc., will design and construct a carrier class cable station to house the SAPL system and provide network operations and management ("NOC & NMA") services.
In addition, Columbus and Ocean Networks have agreed to include additional commercial agreements for onward connectivity from this link to the NAP of Americas and the Caribbean region, using a variety of the diverse subsea network routes.
This is very significant as the South America Pacific Link system will fulfill a requirement for the markets of Central and South America for connectivity to the Asia Pacific region, Australia and New Zealand, via interconnections with existing and planned submarine cable systems. Hawaii is a mid-Pacific hub for numerous submarine cable systems. The SAPL system, which is planned for completion in mid-2016, will also provide a cost effective, direct low latency route to Hawaii and open a previously untapped trans-Pacific market.
"We are very excited to have selected Columbus Networks as our landing party for Panama. Columbus Networks, in alliance with Cable & Wireless, is proven in their capabilities and provides unmatched reach and scale throughout the entire Pan-Caribbean region," said Scott Schwertfager, Ocean Networks CEO.
According to Paul Scott, president and coo of Columbus Networks Inc., "We are honored to have been selected by Ocean Networks. We look forward to enabling their new SAPL high capacity trans-Pacific system, and all the benefits it will enable, through the interconnection into our 42 country subsea network ecosystem."

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations.

The most often asked question post-DevOps introduction is: “How do I get started?” There’s plenty of information on why DevOps is valid and important, but many managers still struggle with simple basics for how to initiate a DevOps program in their business. They struggle with issues related to current organizational inertia, the lack of experience on Continuous Integration/Delivery, understanding where DevOps will affect revenue and budget, etc. In their session at DevOps Summit, JP Morgenthal...
