ISWest and Third Wave Deliver the Key in Proactive Technology Solutions to Businesses

ISWest and Third Wave Collaborate and Leverage Their Strengths and Service Offerings With Proactive Technology Solutions to Small and Medium Businesses

AGOURA HILLS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/21/09 -- ISWest and Third Wave Technology Services (Third Wave), two client-focused technology companies, are collaborating to provide proactive technology solutions that create cost savings, increase productivity, and take the hassle out of technology for owners and management.

Third Wave helps businesses design, maintain, improve, and protect core technologies allowing businesses to concentrate on the core focus. Clients have been secure in knowing their technology is reliable, scalable, and in tune with company goals and objectives. "Through our partnership with ISWest, Third Wave is on the forefront in Managed Services solutions for small-to-medium-sized businesses. We're empowering clients with services, tools, and professional consulting that bridge the gap between their company goals and the realities of their technology," said Steve Balmer, Account Executive at Third Wave. He added, "Client success is our passion. We strive to turn technology into a tool that helps clients cut cost and drive revenue. ISWest provides us the world class Internet service, support and reliability to reach that goal."

ISWest recently built its 2nd Data Center in Agoura Hills, which has been given a standing ovation by partners, customers and industry critics. This new "Green" Server Colocation facility boasts massive amounts of redundant power, air and bandwidth with eight backbone providers under one roof. Security is also very high requiring biometric hand scanning before entering a vault door to the Data Center. High Definition cameras watch over customers' equipment and movements within the data center, keeping 90 days of recordings and making this new facility PCI compliant.

Drew J. Kaplan, CEO of ISWest, remarks, "We are very excited about this new partnership with Third Wave. They have a similar philosophy of high standards in customer care. We've already deployed a very successful Data Center Colocation for one of Third Wave's Financial clients who had very strict security and compliance requirements."

Early in my DevOps Journey, I was introduced to a book of great significance circulating within the Web Operations industry titled The Phoenix Project. (You can read our review of Gene’s book, if interested.) Written as a novel and loosely based on many of the same principles explored in The Goal, this book has been read and referenced by many who have adopted DevOps into their continuous improvement and software delivery processes around the world. As I began planning my travel schedule last...
At the outset, Hyper convergence looks to be an attractive option seemingly providing lot of flexibility. In reality, it comes with so many limitation and curtail the flexibility to grow the hardware resources such as server, storage, etc independent of each other. In addition, performance nightmare bound to hit once the system gets loaded. In late 1990s, storage and networking came out of compute for a reason. Both networking and storage need some specialized processing and it doesn't make se...
ElasticBox, the agile application delivery manager, announced freely available public boxes for the DevOps community. ElasticBox works with enterprises to help them deploy any application to any cloud.

Boxes are an adaptive way to represent reusable infrastructure as components of code. Boxes contain scripts, variables, and metadata to automate proces...
This is the first DevOps book that shows a realistic and achievable view of the full implementation of DevOps. Most of the books and other literature I have read on DevOps are all about the culture, the attitudes, how it relates to Agile and Lean practices, and a high level view of microservices. This book includes all that, but they are not its main focus, and it goes several steps further with respect to the architecture and infrastructure needed for the implementation.
To support developers and operations professionals in their push to implement DevOps principles for their infrastructure environments, ProfitBricks, a provider of cloud infrastructure, is adding support for DevOps tools Ansible and Chef. Ansible is a platform for configuring and managing data center infrastructure that combines multi-node software deployment, ad hoc task execution, and configuration management, and is used by DevOps professionals as they use its playbooks functionality to autom...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...

The pricing of tools or licenses for log aggregation can have a significant effect on organizational culture and the collaboration between Dev and Ops teams. Modern tools for log aggregation (of which Logentries is one example) can be hugely enabling for DevOps approaches to building and operating business-critical software systems. However, the pricing of an aggregated logging solution can affect the adoption of modern logging techniques, as well as organizational capabilities and cross-team ...
DevOps has traditionally played important roles in development and IT operations, but the practice is quickly becoming core to other business functions such as customer success, business intelligence, and marketing analytics. Modern marketers today are driven by data and rely on many different analytics tools. They need DevOps engineers in general and server log data specifically to do their jobs well. Here’s why: Server log files contain the only data that is completely full and accurate in th...

Whether you like it or not, DevOps is on track for a remarkable alliance with security. The SEC didn’t approve the merger. And your boss hasn’t heard anything about it. Yet, this unruly triumvirate will soon dominate and deliver DevSecOps faster, cheaper, better, and on an unprecedented scale. In his session at DevOps Summit, Frank Bunger, VP of Customer Success at ScriptRock, will discuss how this cathartic moment will propel the DevOps movement from such stuff as dreams are made on to a prac...

The word quantum often portends New Age mumbo-jumbo, in spite of the fact that quantum mechanics underlies many of today’s most important technologies, including lasers and the semiconductors found in every computer chip. Nevertheless, today quantum computing is becoming a reality. And while it may look to the layperson like mere mumbo-jumbo, in reality of the technology has largely moved out of the theoretical stage, as recent news indicates. In fact, two important announcements over the la...
Any Ops team trying to support a company in today’s cloud-connected world knows that a new way of thinking is required – one just as dramatic than the shift from Ops to DevOps.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Adam Serediuk, Director of Operations at xMatters, Inc., will discuss the strategic requirements of evolving from Ops to DevOps, and why modern Operations has begun leveraging the “NoOps” approa...
