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.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
