This unparalleled operations center can serve as a primary production data center, a backup data center or a hybrid solution for firms that rely on active-active computing environments. Many New York City firms have joined our New England-based clients at our other Connecticut facility, and I expect that trend to continue.

As a company built by IT veterans for the IT organization, Cervalis understands the importance of security, accessibility, scalability and reliability in helping businesses achieve their goals. Conveniently located near I-95, the Merritt Parkway and between Metro Norths East Norwalk and Westport stations, Cervalis newest facility features 75,000-square-feet of raised-floor data center space (above the 500 year flood zone) and 30,000-square-feet of dedicated disaster recovery seating with 16 MW of redundant power, uniquely powered by two separate utility companies and 3,500 tons of cooling capacity — all just 40 miles from New York City. Cervalis newest data center ensures business resilience.

In recent years, many Connecticut businesses have battled not only natural disasters Snowtober, Hurricane Sandy but also the significant business interruptions that followed, Boccardi said. Cervalis is committed to protecting businesses against these costly interruptions, and we designed our Norwalk facility to allow businesses continuity through access to dedicated work area recovery. During these challenging events, Cervalis maintained 100% uptime and supported thousands of clients in its work area recovery seats and data centers. We expect these unusual weather patterns to continue, and the demand for these offerings remains high.

Home to many leading financial services companies, Cervalis Fairfield County data center offers mission-critical security in a cutting-edge facility. All of Cervalis data centers are SSAE 16 Type 2 and PCI compliant, as well as U.S.-EU Safe Harbor certified.

Additionally, the company has announced the appointment of Mark Canepa to its board of directors.

Our presence in Silicon Valley and Seattle is critical to our success both are large, diverse and highly literate technology communities, said Scott Houston, CEO of GreenButton. This set of moves is in response to the increased demand for our services by both ISVs and their users in the US market. We are growing organically and intend to ‘follow the sun’ to serve our clients better and having the US-based offices gives GreenButton the opportunity to provide always on, always available sales and technical support to our customer base in the US.

The GreenButton platform acts as a personal supercomputer, giving software vendors, the enterprise, and end users an end-to-end solution for the cloud market. It enables the managed transition from the desktop or offline world to the online world, ensuring that both the software vendors and software user gain cloud benefits with minimal risk and effort.

“Cloud computing has the potential to enable scientists and engineers to achieve greater levels of insight and innovation, by providing access to computational tools beyond what they can afford or manage internally,” said Addison Snell of Intersect360 Research. “These high-performance computing users already spend over half a billion dollars per year worldwide for resources on public clouds, and we expect consumption will exceed $ 1 billion by 2015.”

New Appointee to Board of Directors

GreenButton also announced the appointment of industry veteran, Mark Canepa, to the Board of Directors for the US subsidiary. Mark is the former chief executive officer of Extreme Networks. Prior to that position he was Executive Vice President of the Data Management Group for Sun Microsystems. He was with the company for ten years, having joined Sun in October 1996 and rising to his position as Executive Vice President five years later in 2001. He served in multiple vice president and general manager roles in the organization during his tenure at the company. Previously Mark held several general manager positions in Hewlett-Packard, including development and marketing of the firm’s workstation division.

Cloud Computing is changing the dynamics of the IT industry and GreenButton is leading the enablement of cloud applications, said Mr. Canepa. GreenButton is ideally positioned to accelerate the adoption of enterprise cloud computing, while simultaneously improving access to critical information. I look forward to working with GreenButtons management team and helping them capitalize on what is a very large and growing market opportunity.
