Verdant Web Technologies LLC Launched

New Applications Services Provider Offers Web-Based Solutions for EPA Compliance

PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- Addressing the dual challenges of increasing scrutiny of environmental risks and the intensifying need for organizations to streamline compliance with government regulations, Verdant Web Technologies LLC (Verdant) has launched in Portland, Oregon with a mission to help multi-facility organizations create uniform, paperless and cost-efficient environmental compliance data that will meet the stringent requirements of environmental regulators.

A wholly owned subsidiary of leading NW consulting firm PBS Environmental + Engineering Inc., Verdant was created to leverage the power of technology to simplify and lower the cost of developing and maintaining asbestos surveys, lead information, drinking water data, training records and other regulatory data. Modules for these and other environmental issues are bundled to create a custom platform for easy, web-based data management.

"Verdant uses technology to do what technology does best," says PBS President and Verdant co-founder Ron Petti, "and that is to store, organize and make readily accessible large amounts of data in a simple and cost effective way."

According to Petti, environmental regulators are becoming increasingly open to technology solutions to satisfy environmental record keeping requirements. "We're finding a growing acceptance, particularly in EPA Region 10, of paperless, web-based data management systems for environmental recordkeeping. Our instincts tell us that this acceptance will only grow as regulators observe how superior these systems perform, while also lowering the cost of compliance and reducing the overall environmental footprint of paper-based record keeping," said Petti.

Verdant Web Technologies' customized data modules can be populated from archived information or through ongoing data input by the user. Other Verdant services include organization of archived data, scanning and uploading, interactive facility plans, database creation, and web hosting services.

The Verdant data center features the latest modern enterprise level information technologies for reliability and performance. The Verdant web hosting servers exist in a redundant cloud, backed by an enterprise-level fiber internet connection that has uptime in excess of 99.99%. The web and database connectivity is secured using industry-standard encryption for privacy.

Verdant is headquartered in Portland, Oregon and has a core team consisting of industry practitioners and software developers with more than 25 years of experience in the environmental compliance industry. Verdant clients include school districts, universities, public agencies, hospitals, and large-scale corporations. Read more about Verdant at www.verdantwebtech.com.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
