Louisiana Incubator Helps New Start-Ups With Venyu Cloud Services

Leading Provider of Data Center and Managed Hosting Brings Enterprise IT Services to Entrepreneurs' Budgets

BATON ROUGE, LA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Continuing to nurture its leadership as a provider of business continuity, cloud services and battle-tested data recovery solutions, Venyu today announced Louisiana Technology Park as the latest customer leveraging their new cloud-based services. Providing an incubation environment to start-up companies, the Tech Park is making use of Venyu's secure and highly-redundant data center features to empower entrepreneurs with enterprise-class, IT resources on a tight budget. For more information, please see the full Tech Park case study at: http://www2.venyu.com/LATechPark

The Louisiana Technology Park is one of the South's premier business incubators, providing high tech start-ups with the resources to bring products and services to market faster and more effectively. The Tech Park delivers businesses with everything they need to get up and running quickly -- from office space and utilities to personnel and equipment.

"Our goal is to be more than a technology incubator. We aim to function as a critical resource -- capable of injecting instant business enhancers and supplements to speed our clients' growth," said Stephen Loy, Executive Director, Louisiana Technology Park. "But to bring this additional value to fruition, we must provide the technology solutions to back it up."

Key to ensuring client success: providing entrepreneurs with access to highly redundant, secure data centers, offering cloud back-up and support services. Loy continues: "For our clients to remain competitive, we must go beyond office space and shared services. Today's competitive business environment is all about data and the applications that drive information. Venyu helps us ensure our clients have access to critical data center resources from the start."

From the beginning, the Tech Park worked with Venyu to construct the right infrastructure to support its growing customer base. The Park and its clients make use of Venyu's commercial data center -- offering robust network platforms engineered to avoid any single point-of-failure in connectivity, power, or environmental conditioning. The data center also provides the highest levels of restricted physical and network access -- allowing only authorized individuals to work with or around proprietary data.

"When an entrepreneur is trying to sign a new customer, the last thing they need is to appear ill-equipped to store and manage critical information. To house a server in the corner of your office and expect the customer to hand over all their data is just unreasonable. With Venyu, our tenants can access world-class data center resources -- without spending the time or money to build these services themselves," Loy said.

The hosted Venyu solution provides Tech Park members with the confidence that data will always be available and accessible when needed. Given the increased threat of natural disasters, companies are demanding reliable back-up to ensure information is always protected -- as any lost time can significantly impact revenue.

"To get ahead, new businesses must be able to run at a 24 x 7 pace. They don't have time to shut down if Mother Nature throws in a storm or two. Venyu is battle tested and keeps our clients on a 24 x 7 pace -- so they can continue to make sales calls and get business done," Loy added.

Moving forward, the Tech Park anticipates expanding its engagement with Venyu as it takes on additional business -- as Venyu provides the flexibility and scalability necessary to support growth on-demand. Loy concluded, "A large part of our success can be directly attributed to our relationship with Venyu. As we continue to grow, there are really no boundaries as to what we can accomplish together."

"Entrepreneurs need to take advantage of many IT business tools in order to help them grow," said Scott Thompson, Venyu Chief Executive Officer. "Through the Louisiana Technology Park, Venyu is extending the same IT cloud-based services used by larger enterprise organizations to start-up companies -- empowering them with cost-effective, on-demand data processing power to succeed."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
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-c...
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 ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
