Our First Breakfast Event of 2012 at TELEHOUSE Headquarters!
On Wednesday, February 15, 2012 TELEHOUSE America's partners, customers and friends gathered at our flagship data center, the Teleport in Staten Island, for our first breakfast event of 2012. Featured speakers included Hunter Newby, CEO of Allied Fiber and Morris Tabush, Founder and President of Tabush Consulting Group.
Mr. Newby's presentation focused on "The Need and Rationale for a New, National, Carrier-Neutral Colocation and Dark Fiber System". As he explained, most current long-haul dark fiber is over ten years old, with many routes having reached fiber exhaust or lease elimination. Currently, dark fiber is in a much higher demand than ten years ago due to wireless technology, distributed data centers, cloud computing and rural broadband demand.

2012 Touted as the "Year of the Network"
2011 was indeed an explosive year for network innovations on many levels. From increased speeds and feeds to hot initiatives such as cloud computing, storage, IPv6, and data convergence, 2011 is marked as the time in which networking innovations truly erupted, after years of being stagnant. With that, it is reasonable to conclude that 2012 will indeed be continuing the path of paving way for new networking technologies and opportunities.
A recent article featured by Data Center Dynamics describes 2012 as the "Year of the Network", citing that network operators across all sectors continue to seek out ways to drive data faster, and create shortcuts for content, which leaves the network vulnerable to exertion as it copes with today's heavy multimedia and application demands.
The 'cloud' in particular has grown rapidly, which means that it will be one of 2012's biggest requirements across several key industries. Data Center Dynamics states, "If cloud computing is going to be the trend in 2012, the network will be its bottleneck."
Enhanced Power Reliability for Data Centers
Have you ever gotten in your car and it didn't start? Probably doesn't happen very often, but if it ever did - you would be extremely frustrated to say the least. When purchasing a car you trust that your vehicle will work properly each and every day. And it should - as long as you maintain it - things such as changing the oil regularly, adding proper levels of water and coolants, and replacing spark plugs and filters.
The same can be said for data centers. We expect and trust that our data centers will remain up and running at all times. But without the proper maintenance and testing, our critical information, business applications, and communications can be in jeopardy. That could in effect wreak havoc on our daily operations, client relationships and our bottom line.
Data centers require experts in-house to make sure they run properly and stay 'ON' all the time. The 'ON' mode for data centers is directly related to the reliability of its power systems (among many other things).
