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,” said Scott 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.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
