New "Try and Buy" campaign from Claranet on Virtual Data Centre offers free test drive of award-winning secure cloud sync and share service TeamDrive

Secure enterprise Dropbox-like service available across Claranet VDC in Germany

Hamburg, 10th December 2012 - The managed services provider Claranet Germany has started a Virtual Data Centre (VDC) "Try and Buy" campaign for its TeamDrive file synchronization system. The campaign runs until 31 December 2012, and gives new subscribers the chance to try TeamDrive free of charge for a month. They will also receive a 10% discount on any additional 12 months subscription for the VDC resources.

Claranet, the ISO-certified and award-winning managed cloud solution, allows companies to easily set up their IT infrastructure through a self-service portal, customizing and managing their IT resources to suit business needs.

The new VDC integrated data synchronization and collaboration solution, TeamDrive, enables IT managers to provide secure information sharing. It is a practical example of a user-oriented application within the VDC and allows employees to store data and documents securely and to easily share and collaborate on documents and other files. The VDC operates from the Claranet data centre based in Frankfurt am Main.

ISO 27001 certification and compliance with the Federal Data Protection Act ensures the use of TeamDrive delivers optimal data and information security. There is encrypted access to TeamDrive data through local or mobile TeamDrive clients for all major operating systems and devices such as Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android.

TeamDrive is easy to integrate into the VDC - using pre-prepared templates that organizations can easily customize and manage to suit their own requirements. Additional resources such as additional capacity can always be provided within minutes. If required, TeamDrive can also be connected to internal user identity management systems, for example, to Microsoft's Active Directory.

As part of the "Try and Buy" campaign Claranet provides the VDC starter kit with 100 GB of storage, resources for up to three servers and 10 client licences.

TeamDrive is priced from €680 per year and further pricing and package information can be found at www.claranet.de/herbstaktion2012.

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.
