launches

EDISON, N.J. – Data center solution provider Bruns-Pak has created the first East Coast showroom to demonstrate the ServerLIFT line of lifting solutions for data center equipment. Located in Bruns-Pak’s Edison, NJ facility, the showroom currently features the ServerLIFT SL-500X® Powered Lift, designed to lift, move, and install servers and other heavy IT equipment within the narrow confines of server room aisles.

Premier IT equipment and server handling solutions provider, ServerLIFT, and mission-critical data center designer and builder, Bruns-Pak, have been working together since June 2017 on industry thought-leadership initiatives. Their collaboration has resulted in part with the new showroom where guests can visit with Bruns-Pak staff and learn about ServerLIFT solutions, operation, and safety, as well as data center (DC) safety. Visitors can access helpful resources highlighting assisted lifting devices (ALDs) and all of ServerLIFT’s data-center solutions.


Mark Evanko, Principal at Bruns-Pak, explained that the showroom would benefit the customers of both companies by demonstrating their equipment and services, while helping them expand their own professional network and gain access to industry-critical information. “We have customers right here, in New Jersey, who would benefit from seeing these popular server lifts in action,” says Evanko. “It is not safe for the equipment or the data center staff to be removing, transporting, and installing heavy and expensive servers without the help of a motorized server lift such as the SL-500X. Getting hands-on experience with the lifts is going to help them see why these units are a must-have for the more progressive data centers.”

A lot of data center managers are not even aware that there are server lifts created specifically for the data center environment. Evanko stated that by providing ServerLIFT devices in their showroom, Bruns-Pak experts can work with customers in-house. And, with access to ServerLIFT, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), it can help deal with the constant changes of equipment servers, and racks. Evanko urges data center industry leaders to experience the difference between lifting heavy equipment by hand vs. using a data center- designed lifting device.

Interested company staff and individuals may schedule a showroom visitation and demonstration to test a ServerLIFT for themselves by setting up an appointment with Steve Bashkin, the Sales Director at ServerLIFT Corporation, or Mark S. Evanko at Bruns-Pak. Both company representatives can provide quotes and other information about ServerLIFT’s data center solutions.

The new demo room is located at 999 New Durham Road, Edison, NJ 08817.

The public cloud computing giant AWS has announced a new realistic virtualization platform called Amazon Sumerian, that enables developers to easily build and host Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and 3D applications, with optimized coding. The developers can run these apps on smartphones and tablets, head-mounted displays, digital signage, and web browsers. Sumerian includes a library of pre-built objects from AWS including Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly, AWS Lambda, AWS IoT, and Amazon DynamoDB.

They can also create and import their own objects, or download and import objects from third-party repositories like Turbosquid or Sketchfab.

GLASGOW, Scotland – Managed hosting and cloud services provider iomart (AIM: IOM) has partnered with OnApp to launch a new cloud-in-a-box solution for small businesses and enterprise IT departments. The new solution combines OnApp Enterprise private cloud software with Intel® hardware to create a turnkey appliance that can be deployed on premises, or hosted by iomart, with self-managed and fully managed options available for each approach. By combining its experience in hosted cloud and managed services, with OnApp’s streamlined and intuitive private cloud management software, iomart can deliver private and hybrid cloud that is significantly more cost-effective and easier to manage than other solutions.

The new cloud-in-a-box solution is available now with a unique ‘try before you buy’ scheme that takes companies from proof-of-concept into production without any additional configuration or migration work. It is designed for companies looking to virtualise and consolidate traditional IT into a more cost-effective integrated appliance; to bring cloud automation and efficiency to their business without requiring an army of technicians; and to simplify the management of workloads across on-premises and hosted cloud infrastructure, using a single, unified cloud platform.


“OnApp is the perfect cloud solution for businesses that don’t want to hire an army of certified professionals to build and administer their cloud, or invest in the cost and complexity of running a complete VMware or Azure stack,” said Neil Christie, iomart’s Commercial Director. “Our new private cloud solution delivers rock-solid virtualisation, automated cloud management, software-defined storage and the robust security and access controls you need, at a fraction of the cost – and we can manage the whole environment for you, in your data centre or ours.”

United Hosting, a managed hosting brand within iomart, already uses OnApp. “OnApp provides our customers with cost-effective hosting that’s 100 per cent available. The self-healing technology means VM uptime is never interrupted by hardware failure,” explained Martin Cole, United Hosting’s Sales Director. “It allows us to offer highly available and instantly scalable solutions to our customers. It’s the flexibility and ease of use that our customers love.”

The wider offering from the whole of the iomart group of companies will allow many more of its customers to benefit. “With its OnApp hosting and managed services experience, iomart is perfectly placed to help companies choose the right mix of managed, unmanaged, hosted and on-premises cloud,” said Alistair Wildman, Chief Revenue Officer for OnApp. “OnApp Enterprise is a truly turnkey cloud solution that brings the public cloud experience to the enterprise data centre at a radically different price point – and working with iomart enables companies to take full advantage of whatever mix of on-premises and hosted private cloud works best for their applications and data.”

iomart’s new cloud solutions are based on Intel® 2u, 4-node servers with OnApp pre-installed and ready to run. They also include OnApp’s global 24×7 support. For hosted private cloud options, iomart offers a choice of eight data centre locations in the UK and a further 19 across Europe, the US, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. iomart provides a range of supporting services to help customers migrate workloads to its private cloud solution, and offers dedicated connectivity between on-premises clouds and its hosted clouds, to create ultra-low latency, hybrid cloud environments.
