A few datacenter and cloud quick takes before everyone goes off for the weekend:
Viawest had a part on both sides of interesting deployment contracts this week. They have tapped A10 Networks's hardware and virtual appliances to upgrade and standardize the application delivery platform of their cloud portfolio across their western footprint. And Biometric Signature-ID has selected that cloud platform as part of its disaster recovery strategy. Viawest has been on the move this summer on many fronts.
The cloud startup Ajubeo is taking an alternate path to market penetration: the channel. They've partnered with Global Communications Group to help market and sell their high performance VPDC and IaaS solutions. Ajubeo formally launched just three months ago, looking to take on the large tech companies and telcos with a greenfield infrustructure design.
CoreSite may be a REIT, but that doesn't mean they can't have an angle on the cloud. The colo specialist has set up a strategic channel and product alliance with RiverMeadow Software and Violin Memory Inc. Coresite provides the space and power, RiverMeadow provides the automated cloud onboarding solution, and Violin memory scales the flash memory array. The combination enables cloud service providers to hit ths ground running with their offerings.
The interconnection specialist Telx won a healthcare contract in New York City. FAIR Health and its advisory firm Tech Gardens have deployed at Telx's NYC2 facility at 111 8th Ave. FAIR Health is a not-for-profit medical claims database with 15 billion billed claims from healthcare providers around the country in its hands since 2002. The deployment at Telx will keep that data about as close to the heart of the internet as you can get.
And finally, Terremark filled out its solution set in Latin America a bit further. They're now delivering Verizon's managed security suite in Brazil and throughout the region as part of their overall cloud and managed services portfolio. I'd have thought they'd have done that already, but it's there now.
