ShoreGroups CaseSentry Adds Dynamic Service Management for Data Centers

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 03, 2013

ShoreGroup, Inc., a premier managed services and management software development firm, has enhanced its CaseSentry platform with Dynamic Service Management (DSM) for data center applications. Enterprise and service provider support personnel now have immediate visibility to business services impacted by dependency on data center resources experiencing availability or performance issues. In addition, CaseSentrys Dynamic Automated Processes (DAPs) update service dependencies in response to ongoing changes in the data center. This synchronization continuously aligns management with changes, such as new or relocated virtual servers, and transitions from primary to redundant resources, to maintain CaseSentrys root cause and service status accuracy.

CaseSentrys Dynamic Service Management capability begins with Advanced Logic Profiles (ALPs) that perform comprehensive automated monitoring and management processes across the data center. When potential computing, virtualization, application, storage or infrastructure issues are detected, CaseSentrys patented root cause analysis is invoked to analyze the issue and identify the precise cause. Through dynamic service dependency relationships, CaseSentry systematically correlates and communicates the resulting business impact for immediate operations and management visibility. Additional CaseSentry processes perform continuous path analysis on all service dependencies. When a change is detected, dependency members are dynamically updated to reflect the in-service configuration and maintain accurate management coverage for critical services.

With CaseSentrys Dynamic Service Management, were taking our industry-leading root cause analysis and patented methodologies to the next level, said David Gauthier, ShoreGroups Vice President of Advanced Management Services. Weve advanced from identifying the precise cause of an issue, to presenting what business service the issue is actually impacting. With this information, support organizations can excel in managing complex data center applications. In addition, CaseSentrys ability to dynamically maintain the components that each service is dependent upon allows us to provide optimal management coverage in the ever-changing data center environment.

GreenBridge Computing Signs Global Agreement with Microsoft Technology Centers

Seattle (PRWEB) April 02, 2014

Today GreenBridge Computing announced that it signed a global Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) Alliance agreement with Microsoft Corporation, bringing its new cloud computing device to enterprise customers worldwide.

The HUB 400 (The HUB) is the worlds first $ 100 enterprise-class cloud computing device. It is proven to dramatically reduce hardware costs and lower energy consumption by replacing standard personal computers (PCs) with an affordable and easy to manage zero-client solution (a cell phone-sized device running without a processor or operating system). While The HUB can be used in a variety of business scenarios, it was designed with the needs of retail and other service-based organizations in mind.

The pressure to drive innovation while reducing costs is something all organizations face, said David Yunger, CEO of GreenBridge Computing. We are seeing companies replace $ 900 PCs with $ 99 devices, all while enhancing and securing legacy IT infrastructure.

As part of the global agreement, the device will be showcased in a number of MTCs worldwide from New York to Silicon Valley, Tokyo and Paris and is already available in the flagship Microsoft Retail Experience Center in Redmond, Wash. In addition, the MTCs are one of GreenBridge Computings earliest enterprise customers and plan to deploy The HUB in select locations.

The HUB comes to market at a time when organizations face Microsofts upcoming Windows XP End of Life deadline and are hungry for options that optimize costs as they make the migration. A recent total cost of ownership analysis compared The HUB to traditional PCs and demonstrated potential savings up to 80 percent. The analysis also found significant savings in power usage and associated costs. Using the HUB, customers can manage up to 20 independent workstations per PC.

The HUB 400 is a superb option for corporations looking to reduce their distributed computing costs,” said Joey Young, Worldwide MTC Alliances Director. Virtualization typically means massive infrastructure costs and expensive third party software. Microsoft and GreenBridge have re-written the game plan. There is really nothing else like it available at such a compelling price point.

The HUB offers seamless integration with Microsoft Enterprise software, helping companies leverage the power of the Microsoft cloud. Windows MultiPoint Server 2012 serves as the base operating system, delivering a Windows 8 experience to each user. Businesses can also deploy the solution as a virtual machine in a data center, managed by Windows Server and Microsoft Hyper-V.

GreenBridge Computing and Microsoft have successfully deployed devices in tens of thousands of terminals worldwide. While the HUB was initially designed as a cost-effective solution for education environments, recent demand from retailers and leading Fortune 500 firms accelerated its launch to the enterprise market. The device was launched to enterprise customers at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Annual Convention & Expo in New York, Jan. 12-14, 2014.

Businesses can purchase The HUB at http://www.msmultipoint.com. More information and a short demo are available online here.

Annai Systems Software to Manage Genome Sequence Data for Pan Cancer Project at Six Centers Worldwide

Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2014

Annai Systems Inc., a provider of genomic data management solutions, today announced that it has partnered with the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR) and the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) to provide its Annai GNOS data management software in support of six data centers around the world that will house a large data set for the Pan Cancer Project.

The Pan Cancer Project is an international effort to enable the further improvement and standardization of data analysis methods, including somatic mutation calling pipelines. This project is part of ICGCs continued focus on generating comprehensive catalogues of genomic abnormalities in tumors from 50 different cancer types and/or subtypes.

The Pan Cancer data set consists of 2,000 whole genome tumor-normal pairs, on many of which transcriptome, DNA methylation and other analysis has been performed. The intention of the project is to define and organize a core analysis package that will be run for each cancer-normal whole genome pair. The sequence and associated data will be uploaded to one of six cloud computing facilities, where alignment to the reference human genome will be performed and basic variant calling algorithms run. These analyses will generate VCF format files containing all somatic mutations identified from the major classes of variants (substitutions, small indels, genomic rearrangements, copy number, retrotranspositions). Many multi-national bioinformatics teams will perform downstream analysis on these somatic mutations with the objective of arriving at one standard analytic pipeline.

Annai Systems software will be used initially by the cloud computing facilities to upload, store, provide access to and manage approximately one petabyte of data that will be replicated at six prominent data centers around the world.

We selected Annai Systems as our data management partner based on their previous work with the Cancer Genome Hub (CGHub), which currently houses the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) data, commented Dr. Lincoln Stein, Director of OICRs Informatics and Bio-Computing Program and Director of the ICGCs Data Coordination Centre housed in Toronto, Canada. It was important to be able to rapidly establish these data centers and ensure that the data could be securely uploaded and stored, and easily queried and accessed by a number of researchers. Annais GNOS platform was the ideal solution for this project, added Stein.

Our partnership with OICR and ICGC represents the next step in the evolution of Annai Systems as the premiere provider of genomic data management software solutions, said Michael Penley, Annais Chief Executive Officer. We are proud to have been chosen to provide the infrastructure and support for this important project and to work with these leading organizations in advancing cancer research and genomic-based medicine.

About Annai Systems

Annai Systems Inc., with offices in Silicon Valley and Carlsbad, California, is a technology company with core competency in big data management solutions. Annai Systems offers products and services to producers and consumers of genomic data that enable them to generate high quality results faster and at lower cost by efficiently overcoming key data-related bottlenecks and roadblocks that impede progress in research and medicine.

LeadMaster ‘Smart Queues’ bring Intelligence to Call Centers & Inside Sales


Roswell, GA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013

LeadMaster, a leader in Sales and Marketing Automation solutions announces ‘Smart Queues’, the latest enhancement to their Cloud-Based CRM solution. Smart Queues provide the ability to organize prospects and customer call records from different sources and automatically serve them up to the sales team in prioritized order. Once a caller enters a pre-defined Smart Queue the system intelligently determines which call records will have the highest priority (score) and begins to deliver them to the agent.

For most business, raw prospects and customer inquiries can come from a variety of sources. The challenge is to ensure higher priority inquiries are worked first. Smart Queues allow management to pre-define how leads are scored, keeping the guesswork out of the hands of the call team.

For example, suppose leads are coming from three sources: the companys website, Google advertising and pre-qualified purchased leads. A Smart Queue can be setup so that pre-qualified leads will always be delivered first and then a blend of website and advertising leads are delivered when there are no pre-qualified leads available.

For outbound calling teams The Smart Queue will be especially effective for improving productivity.

Adhost Internet Completes SSAE 16 Type II Audit of Seattle Data Centers


Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) September 08, 2011

Adhost Internet, a colocation and Web services provider located in downtown Seattle, announced today that it has completed a Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No.16 (SSAE 16) Type II audit. SSAE 16, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is the most widely recognized authoritative guidance that provides service organizations a uniform method for disclosing independently assessed information about the design and operation of internal controls related to their services.

The audit was performed by Accell TAC, P.A., a full-service audit and consulting firm that specializes in conducting SSAE 16 audits. Earlier this year the SSAE 16 replaced SAS 70 (Statements on Auditing Standards No. 70), which Adhost completed in previous years. Compared to SAS 70, SSAE 16 brings US companies up to date with the new international service organization reporting standards, the ISAE 3402. SSAE 16 audits require a written assertion from management regarding the data center controls and the service auditors opinion letter.

Companies who complete an annual SSAE 16 audit of their data center operations are able to demonstrate a substantially higher level of assurance and operationally visibility than those companies who do not. The completion of the SSAE 16 Type II audit typifies Adhosts continued commitment to create and maintain the most stringent controls needed to ensure the highest quality and security of services provided to their customers. The Service Auditors Report issued by Accell TAC, P.A., with an unqualified opinion, demonstrates that Adhosts control activities were effectively designed and in operation throughout the reporting period.

“By successfully passing a SSAE 16 Type II audit, as well as SAS 70 Type II audits in previous years, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to proper controls and security in our data centers. All of our data center clients, including publicly traded companies and those in the financial and healthcare industries, benefit from our processes and procedures and are able to use our audit report for their required audits, states Will Riffle, Adhost President and CEO.

The Service Auditors Report includes a detailed description of Adhosts controls and an independent assessment of whether the controls are placed in operation, suitably designed, and operating effectively. To receive a copy of the Service Auditors Report, or for any further questions, please contact Adhost Sales at sales(at)adhost(dot)com.
