Redmond’s ‘Free’ Gambit

LXer Linux News - Mon, 01/26/2015 - 21:10
Ah, there’s the rub. For this to work, the new Windows must work “as expected.” What if it doesn’t? What if Redmond lays an egg and the new operating system is reminiscent of Windows ME or Vista? Will users be given the ability to roll back to their old OS as they could during the Vista brouhaha? And imagine the public relations nightmare if 10 turns out to be an utter fail. It could happen. This is Microsoft, after all.

ITWire - Mon, 01/26/2015 - 20:49

Online platform for the FMCG products market, RANGEme has appointed a new Chief Technology Officer.

Ricky Friedlander has joined RANGEme to take up the CTO role. Friedlander has played an integral part in the growth of several start-ups, most notably MacromatiX, a SaaS provider which built operations software for brands including McDonalds, KFC, Burger King and Starbucks.

The RANGEme platform facilitates the ranging process for FMCG products.

RANGEme CEO and Founder Nicky Johnson said Friedlander’s mobile product development was seen as a major innovation for the company and industry and was a key factor in the acquisition of MacromatiX (now Red Book Connect) by private equity firm TPG Growth in 2012.

{loadposition peter}“We are delighted that Ricky has joined RANGEme. He comes to us with 13 years of tech industry experience which will be instrumental in growing our local development team to deliver an outstanding customer experience.”

Johnson said RANGEme had achieved significant momentum since its launch in March 2014, recently winning Smart Company’s web awards for Best Small Company Website, and the platform is used by hundreds of buyers from the grocery, pharmacy, convenience and health food channels to source new products for their stores.

“RANGEme is a revolutionary concept that is transforming an outdated, time consuming process between buyers and suppliers. I’m thrilled to be leading the technology development of this disruptive business,” Friedlander said.

Equinix reveals new customers for Melbourne data centre

ITWire - Mon, 01/26/2015 - 17:48

Data centre operator Equinix has announced that more than 30 new customers are moving into its ME1 centre in Melbourne.

Providers of various categories of services are taking space in Equinix's ME1 Melbourne data centre.

On the network side, Telstra and Vocus are being joined by FirstPath and Western Australian Internet Association (WAIA).

"It is very exciting to see a new Equinix data centre in Melbourne," said WAIA president Pawel Mrugalski.

{loadposition stephen08}"Its rich business ecosystem allows us to access to a broad pool of potential customers and enables key industry partners like IX Australia to continue to grow with more peering locations."

Cloud and IT service providers using ME1 include Bulletproof, Connectivity IT, Entrust ICT, Exigent and Servers Australia.

"In April 2014, Bulletproof opened its Melbourne office to support its regional operations," said Bulletproof marketing manager Lee-Sia May.

"Equinix's investment in ME1 provides Bulletproof with the ability to offer new and existing clients local network speeds in Victoria and bolster its hybrid solutions."

Content and enterprise customers are also being attracted to ME1. Tenants include CacheFly, Azzurri Communications and LiveBackup.

"From inception we realised that to be exceptional LiveBackup required the best storage, backup software, network, support and people, said GCOMM (LiveBackup's parent company) CEO Daniel Thompson.

"Although these individual components were equally important, ultimately LiveBackup also had to consider the bricks and mortar of where to house the service platform. Equinix ticked all the boxes and they continue to exceed our expectations."

Equinix Australia managing director Jeremy Deutsch said "With the tremendous momentum that we're seeing deploying in ME1, it is tangible proof that Equinix's interconnection solutions are key to customers' engaging with a dynamic ecosystem of business partners, networks and carriers.

"Enterprises are looking to be in closer proximity to their customers to reduce latency and improve application performance for their end-users. By deploying in Equinix, companies can do just that."

Other companies using ME1 include Cloud365 and National Voice + Data.
