Cloud Hosting Featured Articles
Many businesses today are turning to cloud-based services for financial as well as strategic reasons. After making the initial decision to shift to the cloud, organizations are faced with an array of choices. One of which is whether to use public, private or hybrid cloud. But first, IT decision makers need to decide whether Platform-as a service (PaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is the cloud service that will offer the most benefits. Finally, organizations will need to decide whether they want to go with a managed or unmanaged cloud hosting solution.
Just when you thought the trend of everything related to the cloud couldn't get any hotter, it did.

For any ol' person looking to create a website, be it for a blog or fan site or as a portal to a small business offering, the typical plan used to be to sign up with a provider with limited features. In just a few short years, the Internet grew up a bit and providers have harnessed the ethereal cloud, or hosted solutions, to offer their customers feature-packed goodies that they otherwise couldn't before.
The cloud is that intangible technology that has its purpose pretty much everywhere you go, from social to business and even mobile. The benefits of the ethereal cloud, however, are quite tangible and very real, and when it comes to the cloud hosting, the benefits are plenty.

There are the public companies we read about on a regular basis, firms such as Apple, Google, General Electric. Then there is a whole class of companies we don't often think about, quiet moneymakers that are privately run and often not splashy enough to make the headlines. But they sure make money.
Datapipe provides managed services and infrastructure for outsourced IT and cloud computing. Through this appointment the company is demonstrating its commitment to operational excellence and world-class customer support.
Cloud hosting provider Datapipe sure has a lot to be proud of.

One of the benefits often touted with a cloud-based approach to any application is that management can be done offsite, taking that responsibility away from internal employees. This move is quite the cost and time saver for many, but not all cloud hosting solutions completely eliminate in-house management. So how much management will you need? Well, it provides on the solution. Let's take some time to explore this.
Private cloud company Appko has released its self-service cloud product called myCloudPod, which helps IT add servers to converged infrastructures from vendors such as Cisco, HP, IBM and Dell. myCloudPod is being launched through the value-added reseller (VAR) channel, and company officials say it's designed to put IT in a leadership position to provide a more complete experience to their users, while at the same time, maintain control of the infrastructure.

The market buzz continues to focus on the scalability and efficiencies of the public cloud; however, the challenge for many companies is to break through all of this hype to identify the true benefits that will deliver value in their own environments.
Managed hosting, security and IT services provider, Datapipe, seems to be quite happily and deservedly sitting pretty. Not only did the company make the top 10 list of most reliable hosting site companies for February 2013, but Datapipe proves it backs up its technology with just as reputable customer service. The company snagged a Bronze in the "Customer Service Department of the Year - Computer Services" category - reportedly outshining some 1,100 organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry to be selected as the winner of this prestigious award.
In Netcraft's monthly Internet research report on the hosting industry, Datapipe remained in the top 10 for February 2013, locking in at number five for a second consecutive month. In the hosting industry, how many failed requests received serves as a critical parameter for measuring a hosting company's effectiveness, and ultimately, its reputation. Datapipe, a quickly growing cloud hosting company, has been consistently proving itself a reliable and powerful contender in the space by securing a solid position in this impressive listing.
As if Datapipe needed any more validation to prove that it is one of the leading managed service providers today, Nine Lives Media recently ranked the company number six on its list of the top 501 managed service providers globally in its sixth annual MSPmentor 501 Global Edition.
IBM and Nokia Siemens Networks have partnered to begin working on a new, entirely mobile based computing platform. This point of access network hosting of applications will allow for greater data transfer efficiency and a network that can act intelligently based on its traffic load. This seems, at first glance, to be contrary to Nokia Siemens fundamental thinking in recent years, as they have introduce several new cloud based network solutions to share data.
Cloud hosting provider Datapipe has joined an elite group of companies that were named to Forbes annual ranking of America's Most Promising Companies. The Jersey City, N.J.-based company, which provides managed services and infrastructure for outsourced IT and cloud computing, has been ranked at No. 60 on the list of 100 privately held, high-growth companies with promising futures.
Datapipe, a company that offers a single provider solution for managing and securing mission-critical IT services, recently revealed that Amazon Web Services (AWS) had named it a Premier Consulting Partner under its Amazon Partner Network (APN).
Still pretty much in its infancy, Datapipe has been recognized as one of America's Most Promising Companies by Forbes. The New Jersey-based company is one of many entrants in the cloud hosting space, but one of few that holds real promise.
It only make sense; if you're going to adopt something, you're going to need the necessary skill set to support it. For example, if you've decided to take up running, then you'll need to familiarize yourself with the proper posture and gear to strengthen your endurance. Similarly, as more businesses decide to rise to adopt cloud technology, they will need to acquire stronger cloud computing skills in business staffs and among IT employees. After all, the cloud is not just a "deploy it and forget about it" kind of situation.
Datapipe is a provider of managed services and infrastructure for outsourced IT and cloud computing, touting products and services ranging from its Stratosphere Elastic Cloud and Stratosphere Hosted Private Cloud to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). The company prides itself on its customer service, 100 percent uptime guarantee and outstanding customer service.
When people hear the term 'cloud computing,' chances are they're imagining Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), but there are many other facets to the cloud such as Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) - all with which cloud providers offer either physical or virtual machines and other resources to customers. IaaS in particular has a lot to offer businesses beyond other cloud models, especially as it continues to evolve and improve.
As technology continues to rapidly evolve and expand, threats to personal and business information are similarly on the rise. Protecting the constant flow and growth of data presents new challenges that require adherence to compliance standards and new security technologies. No one knows this better than industry expert Datapipe, whose Chief Security Officer, Joel Friedman, discussed in more detail in a recent company whitepaper.
While 2012 was coming to a close (and much of the world was anxiously awaiting December to meet their Mayan-predicted demise), Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP was staging a survey of a group of risk management and in-house counsel personnel to see what their position was on cloud computing. The results of the survey suggested that, while there were plenty of benefits to be associated with cloud computing, there were also plenty of risks involved that needed consideration.
With every new wave of technological progress, there will always be those who warn of its many dangers. The Internet of Things is no different - and concerns are already being voiced it could end cloud computing. Meanwhile, others claim it will only strengthen it.
Insight UK has officially joined forces with Datapipe to benefit from the company's industry leading expertise in managed services to extend its InsightCloud services portfolio. Already a prestigious player in the space, this partnership only further positions Datapipe as a leading provider of cloud hosting and infrastructure for outsourced IT.
A server farm by itself does not necessarily make a good cloud hosting environment. As you can only imagine, it's absolutely crucial that businesses considering a move to the cloud ensure that their cloud provider meets enterprise requirements for reliability, usability, compliance and interoperability, among other factors.
Currently, only about five percent of all enterprises, service providers and independent software vendors have been able to migrate their legacy applications into the cloud. There are obvious advantages to this approach; one of these is the fact that once legacy apps are in the cloud, they can be leveraged for multiple services by abstracting their different pieces. In order to enable easy on-boarding of business-critical apps to any cloud, GigaSpaces is partnering with OpsCode to make this happen.
After dealing with several data protection and archiving challenges, EnvisionRxOptions, a provider of transparent pharmacy benefits management (PBM) services, has deployed the Riverbed Whitewater cloud storage gateway appliance to support its four locations in the U.S.
Every month, Netcraft, a company that conducts monthly Internet research reports on the hosting industry, releases its report naming the most reliable hosting company sites. For October and November of 2012, cloud hosting expert Datapipe topped the list as most reliable, and in December, the company maintained a slot in the top five most reliable sites as 2012 came to a close.
There are two primary schools of thought regarding the success of cloud hosting giant Amazon Web Services (AWS). There are the pundits that say AWS is in over its head and isn't very profitable, and then there is the group of experts that claim the company could be extremely successful if it were to spin off into its own business. Now, it seems like the latter will be outweighing the former, after some shocking numbers were revealed in a recent analysis.
Selecting a reliable hosting company can be a challenge for one with little experience in the field. One reliable test of performance is a company's ability to stay the course in the face of disaster. For example, when Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast at the end of October with effects lasting well into November, Datapipe's cloud hosting services remained unaffected, earning it the designation as the most reliable hosting company for November 2012, for which it was also named most reliable in October 2012.
As 2012 came to an end, countless studies, surveys and predictions were thrown about from experts in the cloud space; however, real data-driven studies seem to be far and few between. That is exactly why Alert Logic, a partner of cloud hosting company Datapipe, differentiates itself as a hard source for information that can truly help shape the future of the cloud - or at least help sharpen an otherwise blurry picture.
2012 treated cloud computing, security and IT services provider Datapipe very well. So well, that in a time of economic rigidity where business acquisitions and attritions were happening almost as frequently as you heard "Gangnam Style" on the radio, the company thrived all the more, racking up an impressive collection of honors, awards and exciting new partnerships. 2012 was truly a sterling year for the company, and so it only seems appropriate to report on some of this year's top highlights.
Remember your favorite TV show as a kid? Depending on when you experienced childhood, this could range from Cheers to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Compared to today's advanced times, however, the content of these programs appear just as fuzzy as our heads feel trying to absorb the crazy outfits their characters donned. Similarly, data centers of the past boast features and functionalities that were once at their peak, yet today, fizzle; likewise, solutions of the past have become increasingly sophisticated. While there's a certain fondness still held for these old-school methods, it's essential to think in the present, where everything from TV shows to data centers are bigger and better than ever.
The business of cloud backup is literally in the clouds these days. This is mainly because this type of backup allows companies to store their important data online without having to spend a lot on storage devices and other necessary infrastructure.
When companies look to move their operations to the cloud, partially or in full, one firm they quickly notice is Datapipe, who offers a single-provider solution for managing and securing mission-critical IT services. This can include cloud computing, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), co-location and data centers.
Could it be that all talk involving the cloud is just noise? Despite countless conversations surrounding the innovation of the cloud, there are still many who are unclear of the technology behind it; so much so that throughout the industry, there are cloud users who don't even know they are using the cloud. For those that do, however, streamlining the costs involved in cloud hosting investments and increasing visibility into key platforms is vital for success.
IT security - and in particular cloud security - is a hot topic as analysts make their technology predictions for 2013. Having said that, the onset of cloud-based technologies has brought with it a new set of security concerns for IT decision makers.
Datapipe has been in the news for a number of reasons over recent months, accumulating an impressive number of accolades and titles to perfectly position it as a top contender in the cloud hosting space. As we rounded the corner toward welcoming December, the company added yet another honor to its list; Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently named the company a Premier Consulting Partner.
Famous writer Oscar Wilde once said, "We live in an age when unnecessary things are our only necessities." However, when putting a finger on the pulse of the both the business and the customer, the first thing usually recognized is a dire need for cutting costs. In today's slow economy, it's no longer a significant perk to be able to slash spending, but for many, a true necessity.
The healthcare industry is growing at twice the speed of the national economy, according to Georgetown University's Center on Education and Workforce, and it should create about 5.6 million new jobs by 2020 - that's one heck of a large number.
Last week, the topic of new data center management challenges was addressed - particularly how they would necessitate a more intelligent approach to capacity management. These challenges included an accelerated pace of workload efficiency due to workload mobility and transitory workloads in virtual infrastructures; balancing shared infrastructure for balanced and optimized efficiency; regulatory and policy compliance; and workload placement.
Say goodbye as we sail towards the bright and promising horizon of where 2013 meets the evolved data center. As data center components become increasingly complex, it is no longer sufficient to rely on utilization trending and growth-centric models to predict the future of these critical environments. In fact, according to Andrew Hillier, co-founder and CTO at CiRBA, it can result in horribly inaccurate predictions of true infrastructure requirements.
In order to provide data protection and confidentiality to its clients, EVault and Cequel Data Centers have become partners. Under this partnership, Cequel will promote and sell EVault's cloud-connected backup and recovery services at its locations across the United States.

The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy has left IT decision makers and other executives seriously considering their business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) strategies. In many cases, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) lack any real plans at all.
Datapipe, a provider of managed services and infrastructure for outsourced IT and cloud computing, was recently honored with the "2012 Cloud Computing Excellence Award" by Cloud Computing Magazine.
What is the payment card industry data security standard (PCI DSS)? Simply put, it's an evolving set of security requirement designed specifically for the storage, process or transmitting of cardholder data that businesses even outside the payment card industry are deploying to meet a range of industry requirements.
Downtime can cost organizations significant amounts of money, and even more so during a major event, such as Hurricane Sandy, which unleashed its wrath on the East Coast a little less than two weeks ago. Despite having two data centers located in New Jersey - Hoboken and Jersey City - the managed services provider Datapipe has been listed as the most reliable hosting company in October by Netcraft, which measures and makes available the response times of around 40 leading hosting providers' sites.
In today's economy one thing has remained certain, if not, has grown stronger over the last few years: We want to make the most out of what we have now. Unless your Oprah or Bill Gates, the last thing you'd ever want is to waste valuable assets when you could have used them more (you know, that last bit of toothe paste in the tube). This resourcefulness can easily translate to making the most of cloud computing.
You've heard it all before - but apparently, either not enough or you've been hearing the wrong things, seeing how this year it was rather embarrassingly revealed that the majority of us don't even know what cloud computing is. This year in particular has experienced big growth in the sector, and yet respondents of a recent survey revealed that they related the cloud to a number of things - ranging from the most obvious (weather) to the downright creepy (toilet paper).
According to IDC Head of Research Matthew Oostveen, "2012 was the year we all got tired of the cloud." So if the cloud is currently in a state of significant maturity, does that mean it will evolve from being the awkward, nagging adolescent this year to a sophisticated and independent adult in 2013? Recent research about cloud adoption trends are all pointing to a big fat "YES."
Recently, Datapipe, a provider of managed services and infrastructure for outsourced IT and cloud computing, increased its ranking to No. 8 on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Top 20 Tech & Telecom list of the largest green power users.
Think about it - it's your cloud, it should meet all of your unique business needs and overcome any potential challenges in the process. No one single approach to cloud computing is suitable for every enterprise; that would be like walking into a shoe store and only being able to buy one size or order one thing when going out to your favorite restaurant - it's simply impractical.
Research almost everywhere has been showing that cloud computing is ready to strike and transform businesses everywhere, but how is it transforming within each of the five continents? A compilation of recent surveys released from each location is revealing critical insight into how each conducts their cloud computing affairs and how this could pave the way for the future - think of it as a continental cloud computing breakfast.
American businesses slow to adopt cloud hosting solutions are quick to refer to security issues as the main reason for their delay; however, slowly but surely, these concerns were addressed and overcome. European companies, on the other hand, are still wary of cloud hosting thanks to security and legal issues. In fact, it's estimated that legal jurisdiction issues have put Europe up to five years behind the states in taking up cloud hosting, according to this Tech Target report.
Cloud computing is undoubtedly becoming one of the most fast-growing and favorable technologies today. Not only are companies widely adopting the cloud to meet a variety of unique business needs, but consumers are also relying on the cloud in a number of interactive and innovative ways, such as cloud storage and cloud-based sharing services.
There's the public cloud and the private cloud - and then there's both. Consumers as well as a growing number of companies are familiar with the benefits of the public cloud through services such as Gmail and Dropbox. Enterprise employees, on the other hand, are familiar with the private cloud through their corporate solutions that allow BYOD, telecommuting and enterprise-ready mobile usage. The combination of the two - the hybrid cloud - is not quite as well known, but it is proving to be the way of the future.
Every year, Business Insider evaluates hundreds of private technology companies and ranks the top 100 by value. The result is a list of the top 100 most valuable private tech companies in the world to watch out for. Datapipe, a provider of managed hosting, security and IT services including cloud computing and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), has received the honor of being named to this list not for the first or second time, but for the third time in a row. Not only this, but the company - first ranked #70 in 2010 - shot up to #24 its second year in 2011, and now is proudly positioned just outside the top 10 at #14, right between world renowned contenders Pinterest and Spotify.
Enjoy Ultimate Flexibility, Immediate Global Accessibility, Guaranteed Security with Datapipe Stratosphere Cloud Portal
When it comes to cloud hosting, one of the main problems found is lack of flexibility - especially when concerning geographic dispersal. Organizations worldwide are more than capable of deploying a robust cloud system, yet their cloud-inclined capabilities remain stunted due to problems associated with geographic flexibility within the cloud. Even if you find a way to conquer this challenge, you still face the problem of customization. Combining the two should be like peanut butter and chocolate; smooth, tasteful and desirable, but instead, it's seems like there's a piece of tin-foil stuck somewhere in between.
Selecting an IT vendor is like The Bachelor - you gather a group of promising candidates together to look for a range of compatibilities, differential qualities and to test their attributes to see which distinctly suits you best. When choosing an IT vendor, consider them your "other half," or the one who will truly give you the boost you need to achieve long-term success. I was able to speak with Richard Dolan, Director of Marketing at Datapipe, where he exclusively detailed insights of this important process.
Cloud hosting serves as a critical part of the ever-evolving cloud computing world. Cloud hosting can incorporate either a number of hosted servers in one single location or multiple locations. Cloud hosting helps preserve strong server capability for server resources, which serves as an excellent way to manage resources and costs.
So after much debate you have selected colocation as the best path to address your business IT needs; but now how do you navigate the very daunting task of choosing the right provider? Do you go with the better colocation provider but end up throwing over a few extra hundred dollar bills? Or do you sacrifice some level of convenience and choose the provider closer to your location?

In September of 2009, Larry Ellison claimed that term "cloud" was just a re-labeling of existing technologies and, accordingly, he burst into rants about how ridiculous the hype surrounding it was. A year later, in September of 2010, the same man introduced "Exalogic," Oracle's very own "cloud in a box" solution, in the most sincerest of tones. That's when even the cloud's harshest critics realized that the cloud is here to stay.
