Tier III Facility Opens Fall 2014 Combining Extensive Build Capability and National Footprint With Enterprise Expertise

HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- EdgeConneX®, specializing in hosting content at the edge of the network, has partnered with TelNet Worldwide (TelNet), a full service provider of cloud communications services essential to enterprises of all sizes, to develop Southeast Michigan's newest and most advanced Tier III data center in the city of Southfield. Poised for a November 2014 launch, the newest Edge Data Center® combines EdgeConneX innovation, including purpose-built design, advanced engineering and rapid deployment capabilities coupled with TelNet's greater Michigan go-to-market expertise and customer service focus.

EdgeConneX specializes in providing purpose-built, edge-of-network facilities that enable the fastest delivery of content to consumers.

Our Edge Data Centers are designed and built to adhere to the highest technical standards in the industry and boast a new and proprietary online data center infrastructure management system (DCIM) that provides real-time visibility into each center's operation. This DCIM monitoring tool will be customized for TelNet's use in providing service to its customers.

This data center will greatly complement TelNet's existing redundant, highly reliable network to further its network, cloud and managed service offerings. With 15 years of growth in the industry, TelNet continues to expand its enterprise and wholesale service offerings and will be providing colocation, managed services, virtualization and data storage at this location.

"EdgeConneX is locating data centers strategically throughout the US to reshape the way the Internet functions, and Detroit is an important location. They chose TelNet because of our strong reputation in the region, local expertise, and commitment to bringing the best-of-breed cloud, next-generation network, and managed services to the marketplace," says Pat O'Leary, CEO of TelNet, adding, "The partnership with EdgeConneX will provide a powerful combination and competitive advantage to businesses in Southeast Michigan."

"TelNet is a great partner in the build of our most recent Tier III Edge Data Center. Their focus on enterprise customers complements our wholesale focus to create a balanced ecosystem serving the needs of the entire marketplace. Our Detroit area location was selected for its rich fiber density, vast power and proximity to Michigan's technology hub," adds Clint Heiden, Chief Commercial Officer at EdgeConneX. "With Edge Data Center locations across the country, we plan to grow and expand our relationship, with effort toward building additional partnership opportunities in other geographic areas."

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

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 ...
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In his session at Cloud Expo, Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, provideed economic scenarios that describe how the rapid adoption of software-defined everything including cloud services, SDDC and open networking will change GDP, industry growth, productivity and jobs.

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.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
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...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
