Engine Yard

Two data centers, one is Equinix on the East Coast:

About Us

Engine Yard came about in early 2006 because we saw a genuine need: customers were developing business-critical Rails applications, but they didn’t want to worry about deployment issues, nor did they want to hire IT staff to manage servers.

Customers wanted Rails-focused 24/7 operations support on top of great infrastructure, plus they wanted a smooth path from 100 users to 100,000 users.

That’s what Engine Yard is all about.

Our Customers

Over 400 customers, 2 data centers.

A growing number of organizations trust Engine Yard to manage their Rails application deployments, from small/medium applications running on 3 slices to large applications running on fully dedicated clusters.

Take a look at the January 11, 2008 TechCrunch article about Engine Yard with many comments from our valued customers.

Herakles

www.heraklesdata.com

Herakles, LLC is a privately held company, offering mission critical colocation space and managed services to private and public institutions seeking to outsource their primary or disaster recovery IT infrastructure. Herakles operates a world class Internet data center located in Sacramento, CA with technical and security personnel on site 24 hours a day, every day.

Dear Engine Yard Customers,

As many of you know, we experienced a severe outage at our west coast data center yesterday; many of our customers were affected and experienced several hours of downtime. Our engineers became aware of the problem as soon as it occurred, and began the relevant data center escalation procedures.

What Happened

Yesterday March 30th, at 9:00 a.m. (PST), our west coast data center experienced a loss of internet connectivity.

Why Did It Happen

Our data-center provider — Herakles — maintains redundant internet uplinks with redundant equipment. Normally the failure of a single internet uplink or switch will prompt a failover event, with minimal loss of connectivity. In this case, however, the route processor of one of the redundant switches (a Cisco 6509) malfunctioned.

The electronic trading community's seemingly insatiable demand for colocation services

Two months ago, we wrote the article “Colocation and the Financial Industry” to summarize the growing demand for outsourced colocation services, especially from the Electronic Trading Community.

It may now be worth a little follow up, not because the landscape described has really changed, but to update our readers with a few events that have happened in the meantime.

Switch and Data (SDXC), that was previously only mentioned for its opening of a large data center in the New York metro area at the end of 2008, has finally announced a specific service addressing the financial market, and named John Panzica as Vice President to develop and lead its Financial Services Practice.

With this move, the Company becomes a full competitor in the vertical, with a strong potential - a huge new data center of more than 163,000 gross square feet with a large presence of bandwidth providers, being connected to Switch and Data existing 111 8th Avenue and 60 Hudson Street sites in New York, that are servicing already more than 300 networks.

The service, as we can see going thorough Switch and Data P/R, is targeting the same customers as SAVVIS (SVVS) or Equinix's (EQIX) similar offerings:

Switch and Data's Financial Services Practice was developed to help financial services companies design, develop, and deploy infrastructure solutions to meet challenges including:

  • Speed and Scale - As the need for low-latency market data and trade execution grows, Switch and Data provides an advantage with locations that offer multiple high-performance interconnection choices in close proximity to liquidity providers in New York, Chicago and Toronto. Another challenge is scaling to meet the increase in trade and market data volumes driven by financial volatility and SEC regulation. Switch and Data's high-performance 200 watts per square foot standard supports the order management, market data and matching engine scalability to support current and future growth requirements.

  • Ecosystem Access - Switch and Data understands that successful electronic trading operations are built on access to the right markets and liquidity providers. Switch and Data sites house hundreds of fiber providers, carriers, managed service providers and financial Extranets. Switch and Data has the ability to interconnect its customers with the ecosystem of pre- and post-trade providers, and the sell-and-buy side communities in North America's leading financial markets.

  • Reliable and Cost Effective -Switch and Data works with a customer to design and configure the cage or cabinet space and power specifications to support its unique infrastructure needs. This ability to customize helps optimize capital expenditures. In an industry where downtime equals lost revenue, Switch and Data also offers remote technical support to deploy, maintain and troubleshoot customers' equipment. The company's certified processes and procedures for security and alarm monitoring, scheduled infrastructure testing, fast incident response and proactive communication provide maximum resilience and reliability for its customers' operations.

Low-latency trading specialist Wolverine Trading has recently expanded its presence in the New York market with additional space at the CRG West data center at 32 Avenue of the Americas. As Data Center Knowledge reported recently:

The CRG West site at 32 Avenue of the Americas is a 50,000 square foot facility that was once a cafeteria but was transformed into data center space last year.

Wolverine is also an equity investor and anchor tenant of 360 Technology Center Solutions, a new disaster recovery and colocation facility in the Chicago of Lombard, Ill. Wolverine has branch offices in New York, San Francisco, and London.

While different Companies are winning business, the underlining trend seems a strong demand for these kind of services, both for those who are wholesaling large data center space, like Digital Realty Trust (DLR) or those who are addressing the market with specific products, like the Companies we mentioned previously.

The most interesting news, however, come out of an article published by Security Industry News last March. (click on the picture to enlarge)

While the article addresses a lot of Equinix related infos, it is also very interesting to go through some general comments on the vertical (emphasis added):

Behind the fa├žade of a non-descript building in an industrial area of Secaucus, N.J. is a response from Equinix to the electronic trading community's seemingly insatiable demand for collocation services.

Kevin McPartland, senior analyst with Tabb Group in New York, pointed to a shortage of available data center space. "It sounds counterintuitive in the tough climate we're in," he said, but "building your own is pretty expensive, and it's actually more cost-efficient to go to a shared services facility."

"Everyone knows that in order to shave off milliseconds or microseconds the best way is to collocate." (Sang Lee, managing partner of Boston-based Aite Group) added, "If you have good real estate in these financial centers, chances are you are going to get good usage out of them."

Equinix had announced CBOE as a new customer win in its 2Q 2008 conference call (see Seeking Alpha transcripts). We now have more details about this strategic win:

In fact, Equinix is in the process of expanding the Secaucus data center--already the largest in the New York metropolitan area--as it prepares for an influx of cost-sensitive financial firms and trading venue clients such as Direct Edge and, as Securities Industry News has learned, the Chicago Board Options Exchange's forthcoming East Coast platform.

CBOE chief technology officer Curt Schumacher, who said the exchange operator conducted an extensive search before selecting NY4 for its New York venue, credited, in part, its room for expansion and carrier flexibility. "In the past, a lot of exchanges would partner up with one carrier and make all the firms use them," he said. "We like the firms to have that choice." Though CBOE signed the deal last summer, it has not made the agreement public until now.

While the launch date of the new exchange, C2, has yet to be determined--CBOE is in the process of acquiring an exchange license--Schumacher noted that its cage at NY4 has already been outfitted. "All the computers and networking gear is up and running," he said. "We are now laying down all the code and hope to start unit testing in April."

At the end of the article, we are also reminded why outsourcing may be very interesting for financial Companies (and incidentally know about another Equinix win in the NY4 data center):

Forex trading system operator Gain Capital Group, which went live at NY4 in December, previously ran its own data center, according to chief information officer Andrew Haines. "By the very nature of a small, growing business, we became experts in hosting our own technology services," explained Haines. By building out its own facility, Bedminster, N.J.-based Gain had to "deal with providing reliable power, environmentals, Internet circuits and space, as well as all the networking and communications," he said. "It's something we're good at and that has become a core competence for us. However, what we found is that by outsourcing that to Equinix it allows us to focus on higher-value activities."

As a final comment, we believe that demand, in this vertical, for colocation services is still strong, in spite of the recent economic turmoil, and that several different Companies will be able to benefit from the trend. As John Knuff, Equinix's director of global business development, summarized, there won't be a single winner, although having a critical mass of participants and some strategic anchor tenants will certainly allow a few players to play the lion's share:

(Equinix) NY4 does not want to be "everyone's data center," said Knuff. "There's no way we could host every single server and network for the whole financial industry. We don't compete with network providers and don't have our own financial extranet. We go out and attract market data providers and the extranets as well as the carriers."

Second European Radiosurgery Workshop Yields Record Attendance

Accuray P/R, may be worth reporting here as well (international sales are an interesting potential growth factor for the Company right now):

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY - News), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, today announced that the second European Radiosurgery Workshop yielded record attendance with more than twice the number of attendees compared to the previous year. The event was held March 27-28 at the University Hospital of Charite in Berlin, Germany.

"The University Hospital of Charite is one of the oldest hospitals in Germany and among the largest university clinics in Europe with a reputation worldwide for excellence in medicine and research. We were thus very enthusiastic about hosting the second edition of this workshop focused on what is undeniably one of the major innovations in high precision radiosurgery during the last decade," said Professor Volker Budach, M.D., Ph.D., head of the radiation oncology department and president of the German Society for Radiation Oncology.

At this year's workshop, more than 200 attendees from 28 different countries throughout Europe and the Middle East gathered to hear presentations on the latest clinical and technical CyberKnife experiences. Leading experts from Europe and the United States presented studies, some consisting of populations as large as 400 patients, focused on brain, spine, lung, liver, pancreas and prostate. Attendees ranged from radiation oncologists and neurosurgeons to medical physicists and hospital administrators; all interested in learning more about the latest results as well as new approaches in treatment planning and dose delivery.

Highlights included a study presented by Professor Eric Lartigau from Centre Oscar Lambret in Lille, France on the use of CyberKnife radiosurgery to treat head & neck cancers. The study, which looked at 46 patients who had failed prior irradiation and were retreated with the CyberKnife, found CyberKnife radiosurgery to be a "new, potentially curative therapeutic option with immediate excellent tolerance."

Additionally, J.J. Nuyttens, M.D., from Erasmus MC - Daniel Den Hoed Cancer Center in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, presented experience treating the first 100 of the 200 lung lesions treated at Erasmus using CyberKnife radiosurgery over the past four years. He also highlighted results from a recent study comprising 29 lung cancer patients with central lung tumors, which are traditionally difficult to treat with radiation due to their close proximity to critical structures and organs. Using CyberKnife radiosurgery, the study achieved 88 percent local control with minimal toxicity at 2-years follow-up.

"The outstanding quality of presentations and the exceptional number of attendees is clearly a testament to the potential of whole body radiosurgery in Europe. With its unique ability to treat the most complex tumors with unprecedented accuracy, the CyberKnife System raised great interest amongst many clinicians looking for new solutions to treat cancer," said Frederic Sottilini, senior director of marketing, Accuray EMEA."

Tesla Model S Electric Sedan's Huge Haptic Touchscreen Dashboard In Action

from Gizmodo. Unknown if it may be an Immersion technology based touch screen.

>>The Model S's touchscreen wasn't fully functional during the demo (the car's first with press), so internet browsing and presumably GPS weren't working. But we do know the touchscreen will control entertainment as well as navigation, and that it'll offer haptic feedback, probably rumbling a little bit when touched. The car should be priced around $50,000.

Equinix Has an Edge

from TheStreet.com (subscribtion required):

>>The next evolution of enterprise computing will include cloud computing, and much of this will include outsourcing functions. The "cloud" has to be located somewhere, and Equinix data centers are an ideal location for a wide community of service providers to co-locate. IDC estimates that the cloud-computing market will reach $42 billion by 2012. Equinix's data-center footprint of 41 data centers and over 3.5 million square feet of sellable space is only 78% utilized. With the addition of five data-center builds, Equinix has enough space to meet demand into 2010. Our checks have indicated that Equinix has moved to a direct-selling approach for co-location, as wholesale channel sales are not necessary in a period of rising prices when demand outpaces supply. Also helping are key peering-point locations in New York, Virginia and San Francisco.

What Will Mobile Phones Look Like in 2010?

Nokia's vision, in a GigaOm post. Haptic not mentioned...

>>Last week I met with Anssi Vanjoki, executive V-P of markets at Nokia, to discuss the state of both the Finnish company and the mobile industry overall
. Since Nokia has been particularly good at defining the specifications and features of phones ahead of time, I asked Vanjoki what some of the common features one should expect to see in a top-end phone in 2010 were. Here’s a quick rundown of what he told me:
  • A high-quality (QVGA) screen with 16:9 horizontal mode capabilities
  • A high-quality camera with resolution of between 5 and 12 megapixels and the sharpness and quality of a standalone digital camera.
  • Touchscreen input along with a good QWERTY keyboard. (I’m pretty sure Apple would disagree.)
  • About 32-64 GB storage.
  • GPS and multiple radios that allow access to voice, 3G and Wi-Fi networks.

>>Equinix (EQIX), his largest holding, combines all the themes he likes. It provides data centers, which connect and protect data for businesses. Last year the company raised its financial guidance six times and expects to see revenue increase more than 20% in 2009. It's a capital-intensive business, but Lippert likes that it's able to finance all its growth internally and generate 30% to 40% internal rates of return on their facilities.

Even in this economic climate, Lippert still believes there are gems like Equinix in the tech sector.

Internap's New Data Center: Built Green, Built Right

from CIO.com (dated Feb 26):

>>I recently attended a ribbon cutting ceremony for Internap's newest data center in Boston. Besides receiving a $453,000 rebate for power efficiency from NSTAR (the largest NSTAR ever handed out), there were several other significant accomplishments achieved in building the colocation provider's new, green, Tier III-level data center:

1. It was built for under $1,200 per square foot – well below the Uptime Institute estimate of $2,500 to $5,000 for this type of facility.

2. The entire project—from permits to construction to inspection, all the way up to the facility's first tenant—took only 12 months to complete. Yet most people I speak with assume a project like this will take about 24 to 30 long, painful months.

3. The Internap data center is expected to use $400,000 less electricity per year vs. a comparable, conventionally-built facility.

Rob Powell says:

CyberKnife officially unveiled during ribbon cutting

The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University on Friday officially unveiled its newest tool to fight cancer — the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System.

The medical school's Department of Radiation Oncology held the open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center. The CyberKnife specializes in targeting accuracy, allowing it to deliver radiation treatments with minimal damage to surrounding body tissue.
