MOUNT ARLINGTON, N.J. and NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Exigent Technologies, a leading managed IT and cloud services company, today announced it has collaborated with the Ingram Micro Inc. VentureTech Network (VTN) Big Apple Chapter to donate professional IT services, solutions and products to New Jersey charity, The Center in Asbury Park, Inc.

"We appreciate the support and services that Exigent and the Big Apple Cares program have provided. Having better technology will help us do our jobs better and get the word out about The Center. We're very grateful to all the firms involved in making these important contributions."

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...
