Newark, NJ Data Center Offers DC Power

NEWARK, NJ – 165 Halsey Street, a dedicated 1.2 million square foot data center/colocation/telecom carrier hotel offering affordable space, power and interconnection services, announces that it has expanded its colocation business with a new Colocation Room (V) located on the eleventh floor of the data center. Colocation Room V offers an additional 31,000 square feet of colocation space.

The expansion is a direct result of increased demand for colocation services within the building. Of 165 Halsey Street's five Colocation Rooms, two are 100% occupied, with remaining data center availability in Colocation Rooms III, IV and V. 165 Halsey Street also offers more than 31,300 square feet of built data center space and 61,500 square feet of vacant space.

In addition to the expansion, 165 Halsey Street is offering DC power to its customers for the first time in the building's almost two-decade history. Tenants will benefit from the introduction of DC power within 165 Halsey Street as DC Power continues to be in high demand for telecom companies.

T5 Receives Attestations for Healthcare Security and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards for Both Wholesale Data Center and Colocation Operations

ATLANTA, Ga. – T5 Data Centers™ (www.t5datacenters.com), innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, today announced that its T5@Atlanta and T5@LA data centers have been certified compliant with the latest credit card data security standards and determined to be compliant with healthcare regulatory standards. T5 has received third-party attestations for compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, and the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard.

Compliance extends to T5's colocation services as well as its wholesale data center services and gives T5 a competitive advantage when bidding for healthcare and transaction-driven contracts, especially for data center customers since certification for wholesale data centers is less common. To qualify, T5 worked with independent auditors to verify that all the necessary physical and network security components were in place.

"We are seeing more RFPs from healthcare service providers, insurance companies, e-commerce companies, and financial institutions that need assurance that our facilities comply with the latest security standards," said Frank Lyles, Chief Business Officer for T5 Data Centers. "We elected to use a third-party auditor so our customers could be confident in our standards compliance, and so we could expand security testing beyond the scope of the standards. I am pleased to say that our physical and network security procedures were tested and found to meet or exceed the rigor of the applicable standards."

The HIPAA Security Rule is a national standard to protect patient medical records and personal health information. It requires appropriate safeguards to protect personal health information, including standards for the safe handling of patient data. The HITECH standard promotes the adoption of health information technology, including the secure electronic transmission of health information. PCI-DSS is a set of industry security standards that ensures that all companies that accept, process, store, and/or transmit credit card information, maintain a secure environment.

Kryptos Logic and Dataffirm Among Partners Benefiting From New Program

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – StreamSets, the dataflow performance management company, today announced the StreamSets Embed Program, which provides support and services to technology companies needing to embed world-class data ingestion capabilities into their products and services. The Embed Program includes two options, an Innovator Program designed for early stage companies and an OEM Program for more mature companies.

The Embed Program offers developer-level technical support for unlimited internal use of StreamSets Data Collector™, allowing participants to build with confidence on StreamSets technologies. It also includes access to other value-added services, such as training, go-to-market assistance and professional services, such as architecture consulting. Through the program, partners are also able to upgrade their license to extend support to their customers.

"StreamSets Data Collector provides critical big data ingestion infrastructure across a broad set of use cases," said Jobi George, vice-president of alliances at StreamSets, "The StreamSets Embed Program is a crucial enabler for companies whose products or services require developing complex Big Data applications using a wide range of technologies including Hadoop, Spark, Kafka or Elasticsearch. By leveraging StreamSets' expertise, partners can maintain engineering focus and get to market more quickly than if they attempted to build and support these capabilities themselves."

Early members of the StreamSets Embed Program include Kryptos Logic and Dataffirm. Kryptos Logic is a leader in Threat Intelligence. StreamSets technology has widened its ingest infrastructure capabilities and improved the way it builds data pipelines.

"Kryptos Logic frequently deals with changing data sources and pipelines from thousands of sources," said Salim Neino, CEO of Kryptos Logic, "As a result, data drift can be a difficult problem to tackle when handling copious amounts of data over such a set of data sources. Streamsets has matured our big data stack so that we can ensure our data pipelines ingest large volumes of data from a variety of sources and still maintain high quality. This has proved valuable not only to our internal development team, but also in our multi-tenant environments where we work closely with clients and partners."

Dataffirm provides predictive analysis on large volumes of publicly available company data and is deploying StreamSets as core infrastructure that it considered too complex to build and maintain itself.

"The agility and responsiveness of the StreamSets team has been outstanding," said John Paleomylites, CEO of Dataffirm, "The StreamSets Embed Program helped us to execute faster by focusing on what we do best, which is providing predictive analytics from large volumes of company data."

SAN FRANCISCO – HVR Software has released version 5 of their flagship data replication software.

HVR 5.0 cements HVR’s place as the data replication software of choice for businesses that operate within increasingly complex data environments but require simple tools to use. With outstanding performance and cloud integration, DDL replication, and improved SQL Server log-based capture, HVR is a leader in heterogeneous database and mixed file replication.

“Over the last few years I have seen the Cloud develop from a flexible sandbox for development projects into a primary storage location for many reputable organizations,” said Anthony Brooks-Williams, CEO. “I am very excited to see HVR play a key role in Hybrid Cloud data management infrastructures as both existing and new clients adopt Cloud technologies. With HVR 5.0 the engineering team delivered technology even better equipped to support Cloud use cases."

Details of the new release show 10x faster performance for loading into AWS Redshift, improved performance in the cloud and heterogeneous environments and the ability to support larger volumes of data while using fewer network resources. The update ensures swifter management of replication set up to minimize latency for business critical data. Check-box-simple replication in heterogeneous environments is offered and a “DVR for data” allows users to look at all logs in the past to double-check data—even before the software was installed.

"HVR continues to lead with high-performance real-time replication in heterogeneous environments,” said Mark Van de Wiel, CTO. “Beyond generic performance optimizations HVR 5 extends this commitment with faster log-based capture from SQL Server, improved loads into Teradata and Amazon Redshift, and full support for log-based Change Data Capture on open source PostgreSQL. Rich support for heterogeneous setups combined with a flexible hub and spoke architecture allows our customers to avoid database vendor lock-in, both on-premises and in the Cloud."

For organizations where real-time data replication is a mission critical process, HVR has been proven to be a reliable, secure and scalable solution implemented by some of the largest global companies and leading government and defense organizations. HVR Software is a privately held company with offices in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific.
