PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 365 Data Centers, one of the top U.S. colocation providers by market presence, today announced that Inerail, the provider of managed servers, Internet and networking services, has expanded into its Philadelphia data center to address growing demand for their services and limitations of their previous provider. 365 Data Centers was chosen ahead of three other colocation providers due to its flexible approach, speed in responding to client requests, multiple carrier connectivity options and the overall quality of the facility.
Aside from its convenient 3701 Market Street location, 365 Data Centers' facility also met Inerail's requirements for uptime availability, compliance and access to carriers. 365 Data Centers' Philadelphia facility is HIPAA and SSAE 16 compliant and features power, cooling, connectivity and security 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and 365 days per year.
"365 Data Centers' quick response time, flexible approach and skilled technicians allowed us to migrate our considerable infrastructure deployment with little or no downtime," said Chris Rogers, CEO at Inerail. "We initially called 365 after business hours yet received preliminary pricing and scheduled a tour of the facility within just two hours – that is unheard of in this industry. The ability to rapidly migrate from our previous facility to a secure, well-run data center with a minimum of downtime was critical to ensure business continuity for Inerail and our clients. We look forward to working with 365 Data Centers in other cities as our growth continues."
Inerail has also been instrumental in the Philadelphia Internet Exchange (PHLIX), a community of regional operators that offers local businesses with connectivity options to different Internet and network service providers. The carrier-neutral PHLIX is present in five different facilities in Philadelphia, now including 365 Data Centers' facility, to maximize the number of carrier connectivity options it can offer customers. This arrangement includes a high-speed fiber optic connection via Inerail to 401 North Broad Street, Philly's "Telecom Hotel" carrier interchange, to enable greater connectivity choice, redundancy and availability for 365 Data Centers, Inerail and PHLIX customers. In addition to the shared VLANs, PHLIX also offers private VLANs between connected networks.
"Inerail is a staple for Internet services in the Philadelphia area, and 365 Data Centers is pleased to have the opportunity to help Inerail expand its business and to grow with PHLIX," says Jake Zoldan, Vice President of Sales for 365 Data Centers. "With PHLIX, it was necessary for Inerail to have a presence in all of Philadelphia's major data centers in order to provide a variety of connectivity solutions."

Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impac...

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...

Over the years, a variety of methodologies have emerged in order to overcome the challenges related to project constraints. The successful use of each methodology seems highly context-dependent. However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects. Few research papers have focused on the way...

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.
