Global Data Services Provider CyrusOne Adds to Its Online Library with Travis County Case Study

Global data center services provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) announced
that it has added a new colocation
case study to its library on www.cyrusone.com.
This case study highlights Travis County, Texas and their search for a
data center services provider.
“Our goal is to give global IT professionals the knowledge and
understanding necessary to help them achieve a more efficient and
reliable IT infrastructure to better support their core business goals,”
Brueggeman, chief marketing officer at CyrusOne. “This particular
case study highlights how colocation with a reliable data center
provider enabled Travis County to obtain a more secure and reliable IT
environment platform for less cost than its current facility or if it
had built its own data center.”
Travis County is the fifth largest county in the state of Texas, and
operates from Austin. Over 20 cities and municipalities fall under
Travis County’s government jurisdiction and utilize its public services,
such as emergency management, social services, parks and recreation,
election processing, and district and civil court case processing.
When Travis County’s aging IT infrastructure needed to be moved out of
the basement of a city building, it turned to CyrusOne for colocation
services, moving its main IT footprint into CyrusOne’s Austin
I data center facility. This 45,000 square-foot data center is a
cost-effective solution with multiple layers of security, distributed
redundant power, robust connectivity, and plenty of space to grow.
The CyrusOne data center case
study library is a free resource available to business decision
makers and IT professionals. Case studies will be continuously added to
the library throughout 2014.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).
Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
