CHEYENNE, Wyo. & BOSTON – Green House Data, a leading provider of digital transformation consulting and managed IT services, today announced a strategic alignment with Zerto to accelerate digital transformation initiatives centered around hybrid cloud resilience and multi-cloud application migration.

Zerto is an industry leading software solution that replaces legacy solutions with a single platform to enable disaster recovery, data protection, and workload mobility across hyperscale clouds, hosted services, and on-premise data centers. All of which reduces risk and complexity of modernization and cloud adoption. Together, the two organizations help enterprises architect, test, migrate, and protect critical applications and data, even within complex interdependent hybrid environments.

“Zerto is a cornerstone solution for our platform agnostic cloud services,” said Green House Data CIO Cortney Thompson. “This partnership will bring our staff and solutions in close alignment with Zerto’s expertise for stronger service delivery and resilient hosting platforms that efficiently enable modern IT multi-cloud agility for our clients.”

As more IT environments span across on-premise data centers, service provider partners, and hyperscale cloud platforms like Azure and AWS, workload portability and agility have become vital. Meanwhile, enterprise technology faces expectations of 100% continuous availability.

“Often times the migration stages of a digital transformation effort turn into painful sticking points, with complex planning and systems testing required, especially when we deal with client-facing production workloads,” said Green House Data Senior Vice President of Digital Transformation Victor Tingler. “Customers have been extremely satisfied with Zerto and we attribute that to the ease of use when it comes to testing that environment cutover, gaining high confidence in your destination environment in terms of performance and configuration before you hit the button to migrate or failover.”

Green House Data has leveraged the Zerto IT Resilience Platform to facilitate digital transformation in numerous customer engagements including zero-downtime cloud migrations and ongoing business continuity with near real-time recovery time objective (RTO) requirements.

“As one of our most flexible vendor partners, Green House Data has demonstrated the versatility and value of Zerto for true hybrid cloud environments across a wide range of industries,” said Emily Weeks, director of sales, Cloud and Alliances at Zerto. “With longstanding expertise in disaster recovery, their engineering and support teams are highly proficient in the use of Zerto for both resilience and migration. We look forward to continuing our work together to help clients meet the challenges of modern IT service delivery.”

AMSTERDAM – Leaseweb, a leading hosting cloud company, today announced that the growth in its global hosting infrastructure and related network capacity has grown twice the market average. The accomplishment is attributed to a focused approach to grow the company’s global presence over five years and has seen Leaseweb achieve a 22% increase in data center locations worldwide. The result is a 55% increase in network capacity and a leap in bandwidth from 5.5 to 10Tbps, enabling Leaseweb to successfully adapt to international market change, and meet customer demand for local and global cloud infrastructures.

Following the launch of new locations in London and Sydney at the end of 2017, Leaseweb opened a data center facility in Miami last year, providing a springboard into South America, and bringing to 20 the total number of data center locations operating globally, with 80,000 servers under management. Most recently, Leaseweb completed the network expansion of its Amsterdam data center, enabling further growth and paving the way for applications that benefit from 100Gbps connectivity. Additionally, the acquisition of US-based managed hosting services companies, ServInt and NOBIS Technology Group, has given more end-users access to Leaseweb’s portfolio of solutions via its existing data centers.


As well as growing its data center location and services portfolio, Leaseweb extended its IaaS platform into Asia via Leaseweb Cloud, completing the full spectrum of its public and private cloud products available in the region. The company also enhanced its cloud backup and protection offerings, allowing the delivery of an easy-to-use, fast and reliable data protection solution for cloud and internet professionals. Moreover, Leaseweb began offering All Flash FAS storage across its cloud portfolio, reducing latency and increasing reliability for business-critical cloud applications.

“Businesses that operate worldwide, which take pride in their competitive edge, seek the kind of global hosting and infrastructure provider who can deliver best-in-class user experiences locally and reliably,” said Alexander Kalkman, CMO at Leaseweb. “This need feeds directly into our goal to grow globally as the first provider businesses turn to for the provision of cloud infrastructure that not only meets local requirements but offers a footprint to reach customers across borders. Looking forward, we are committed to a continued growth trajectory and delivering superior cloud hosting technology globally, engaging with our customers in a personalized, human-to-human manner—an approach unmatched by industry giants and highly valued by our customers.”

Leaseweb’s commitment to helping customers meet their hosting and managed service needs is particularly evident in the Adtech and Martech sectors, which are key focus areas. Adjust, a mobile attribution and analytics company, leverages Leaseweb’s ability to provide multiple private racks of dedicated servers across the globe. Leaseweb provides racks which are redundantly connected to the core network with 2x 200 Gbps and offers high-speed links between servers (varying 20-40 Gbps, depending on the needs of the region). Algolia, a distributed search-as-a-service API, chose to work with Leaseweb due to its customer-centric and global mindset. Through this collaboration, Algolia was able to build a highly available API distributed over 12 regions, leading them to become one of the top companies for custom search.

Leaseweb is a leading Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider serving a worldwide portfolio of 18,000 customers ranging from SMBs to Enterprises. Services include Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Dedicated Servers, Colocation, Content Delivery Network, and Cyber Security Services supported by exceptional customer service and technical support.

HUDSON, FL – Last month, Daniel Page, Director of Business Development at search engine optimization focused hosting provider ASEOHosting, said COVID-19 has impacted digital marketing because consumer habits have shifted significantly, perhaps irrevocably.

“It’s inevitable that, when the dust settles, we’re going to see more people working remotely, and more organizations supporting a digital workplace,” Page said. “There is also little doubt in my mind that consumer attitudes towards online shopping and delivery have also shifted. As for how this impacts marketing, I see a few broad trends taking form.”


“First, tolerance for manipulative marketing that plays on negative emotions like FOMO or anger will reach an all-time low,” he said. “Most of us are going through one of the most stressful, difficult experiences of our lives. I strongly advise brands to avoid any attempts to generate traffic and leads through the creation of further stress.”

“Second, as more people work remotely, we may see a shift in screentime,” Page said. “On the one hand, we may see more people browsing the web and using social media during working hours who then disconnect after the workday ends. On the other, we may see people spending significantly more time online in general, meaning more opportunities for brands to grab their attention.”

“Finally, brands that offer online shopping and order fulfillment will likely start to see greater success than those that don’t,” said Page, “Brick-and-mortar retail has already suffered significantly during COVID-19. Businesses that fail to pivot and offer digital options may suffer further hardships.”

“Note, however, that these are simply predictions, based on my understanding of marketing and search,” he said. “It’s ultimately impossible to know with certainty what the future holds. The best any of us can do is be prepared and stay informed.”

According to marketing publication Marketing Dive, which compiled research from several different sources, the following changes are immediately apparent:

Consumers are likely to pay more for local products, trusted brands, and ethical brands, respectively.
Until the pandemic ends, there are four broad consumer segments: those who are spending less across the board due to strained finances, those who are largely unaffected, those who are pessimistically saving and stockpiling, and those whose spending has increased.
Consumer attitudes towards privacy have evolved, and people are becoming more willing and open to sharing personal data in the interest of defeating the pandemic. There is a possibility this may translate into marketing.

HILLSBORO, OR – Opus Interactive, a leading provider of complex hybrid cloud hosting services, announces a partnership with ScienceLogic, leading provider of AI-driven monitoring solutions for multi-cloud management, to deliver highly secure hybrid and multi-cloud monitoring and management. The joint solution offers federal agencies the ability to acquire the DISA-approved ScienceLogic SL1 hosted inside of the OpusGov FedRAMP Moderate Ready environment that resides in FISMA High rated datacenters.

Similar to the commercial sector, hybrid cloud is the new norm for federal agencies who are moving forward with modernization efforts while mobilizing staff and resources in the COVID response. Survey results published in MeriTalk’s Juggling the Clouds: What Are Agencies Learning report 81% of Federal IT decision makers say their agency uses multiple cloud platforms (private cloud – 77%, public cloud – 57%, and edge -20%). Reasons listed include increased performance, reliability, compliance/security, and flexibility at reduced/predictable cost. Challenges they were anticipating pre-COVID included security, governance, interoperability, regulatory compliance, and budget overruns. Post-COVID adoptions facing federal agencies include the 80% of agency staff and contractors now working remote, as well as added security and compliance needs of telework, healthcare, and communications.


“The need for security and compliance for federal agency solutions has never been more important,” says Shannon Hulbert, Opus Interactive CEO. “We’ve spent over 24 years building resilient solutions in the commercial sector and are excited to partner with ScienceLogic to offer that to federal agencies.”

The joint Opus and ScienceLogic offering delivers real-time visibility and control across complex IT environments to provide reliability and high security by integrating the DISA approved ScienceLogic SL1 platform with FedRAMP Moderate Ready infrastructure housed inside of FISMA High-Rated facilities backed up in redundant geographies on separate energy grids.

“As the first end-to-end IT infrastructure monitoring company ever to conform to the rigorous security and interoperability standards of DoD UC APL, combined with our close partnership with Opus to meet the standards of FedRAMP, ScienceLogic is fully committed to securing agencies’ digital transformation journey,” said Dave Link, CEO of ScienceLogic. “Whether improving the digital experience or minimizing the costs and risks of adopting the cloud, cross-agency teams need real-time insight into mission-critical services, and we are excited to fuel these initiatives.”

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. Through this framework, FedRAMP enables efficiencies in cost and time by enabling rapid procurement of information systems and services, streamlining assessment and ensuring consistent application of information security standards across government organizations.
