GRAND JUNCTION, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- Mesa County Valley School District 51 (District 51) recently signed an agreement with Unite Private Networks (UPN) to provide fiber-optic services for the District. The 73-mile network will provide connectivity between all 45 District sites and the District's Technology Hub in Grand Junction.
"When completed, the network will provide enhanced educational services," said Odus Harwood, Executive Director of Technology Services at Mesa County Valley School District 51. "Our Schools will have virtually unlimited bandwidth which will enable our teachers to utilize video-intense programs, cloud applications and online testing, without the worry of slow internet speeds."
"This network will provide a full 10 Gbps of bandwidth that is sustained from each campus to the District's main hub, on a network that is designed to avoid any possibility of over-subscription," said Randy Wright, Director of Education Sales at UPN. " While delivering over 100 times the capacity and speed of the District's current WAN, it will also give District Technology staff far more control over their network."
Kevin Anderson, Chief Executive Officer at UPN, said once the fiber is in place it can be easily and cost-effectively upgraded if demand increases over the 10-year period of the Agreement. "The nearly unlimited bandwidth provided by fiber-optic facilities allows our services to easily and quickly expand as the needs of customers grow over time."
Phase I of the WAN is planned to be completed by late spring of 2015, and all sites will be in service by summer of 2016.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
