EvoSwitch betreedt Amerikaanse markt vanwege vraag naar schaalbare colocatie-infrastructuur

AMSTERDAM, November 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

EvoSwitch opent carrier-neutraal datacenter in Virginia, VS

EvoSwitch, een toonaangevende leverancier van duurzame en innovatieve carrier-neutrale datacenter-diensten, kondigt vandaag aan dat het op 1 januari 2013 zijn WDC1 datacenter in de Verenigde Staten opent. De toetreding tot de Amerikaanse markt is het logische gevolg van de vraag naar schaalbare colocatie-infrastructuur in de VS. Bij de opening van het nieuwe datacenter is 27 procent van de beschikbare capaciteit in de eerste fase al verkocht.

EvoSwitch heeft een lange termijn-huurovereenkomst voor een datacenter-faciliteit in Manassas, Virginia getekend. Fase 1  begint met een initiële inzet van 3 megawatt (MW) kritisch vermogen met mogelijkheden tot uitbreiding. In de toekomstplannen is een groei naar 100.000 vierkante meter rackspace mogelijk.

Eric Boonstra, managing director van EvoSwitch: "We zijn erg enthousiast dat we één van de eerste Europese aanbieders van carrier-neutrale datacenter-diensten zijn die uitbreiden naar de Verenigde Staten en een veilig, schaalbaar datacenter lanceren in één van de regio's met de  hoogste connectiviteit ter wereld. Wij zijn ervan overtuigd dat we met onze innovatieve en duurzame carrier-neutrale colocatie een uitstekende oplossing zullen bieden voor de vele cloud-, digitale media- en telecommunicatiebedrijven die op zoek zijn naar carrier-neutrale datacenter-diensten. We kijken ernaar uit ons beproefde model met succes te herhalen in de Verenigde Staten; we nemen de connectiviteitsbehoefte van onze klanten hierbij als basis en voldoen aan hun behoeften door een grote groep carriers en andere netwerkserviceproviders aan te trekken rondom een sterke neutrale Internet Exchange partner, zoals AMS-IX dat voor ons is in Amsterdam."

"Hoewel dit onze eerste internationale uitbreiding is, zien we soortgelijke mogelijkheden voor verdere internationale groei," vervolgt Boonstra. "Veel van onze klanten coloceren hun bedrijfskritische applicaties op meerdere continenten. Met de opening van WDC1 creëren we nieuwe mogelijkheden om deze klanten beter van dienst te zijn en om nieuwe klanten aan te trekken."

Het nieuwe WDC1 EvoSwitch datacenter bevindt zich in Manassas, Virigina, in de buurt van Washington, DC, een regio die fungeert als één van de belangrijkste hubs voor internetverbindingen ter wereld. De datacenters in het gebied trekken een groot aantal cloudproviders, telecom- en digitale mediabedrijven aan voor colocatie en interconnectiediensten. Deze bedrijven vertegenwoordigen belangrijke segmenten voor EvoSwitch.

EvoSwitch heeft grondige engineering audits en testen uitgevoerd om een data​​center neer te zetten voldoet aan zijn hoge kwaliteits- en dienstverleningseisen. Het WDC1 datacenter in Virginia is LEED Gold-gecertificeerd en voldoet aan de richtlijnen van de DoD (Department of Defense) en de DCID (Director of Central Intelligence Directives). Boonstra: "In Europa lopen we voorop op het gebied van energie-efficiëntie. Onze AMS1-faciliteit in Amsterdam heeft dan ook een zeer lage Power Usage Effectiveness-score (PUE) van 1,2. WDC1 start met een PUE-score van 1,3. We streven vanzelfsprekend ook in de VS naar de best haalbare efficiëntie-ratings en vertrouwen erop dat zich steeds meer mogelijkheden zullen aandienen om vooruitgang te boeken op het moment dat wij ons daar vestigen en groeien."

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market?

What are the key differences between wh...
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.
