Cloud data center solutions not only provide results for optimized physical infrastructures, but also enable organizations to be more responsive, improve operational efficiency and increase strategic relevance to their business. TMCnet was there this week to report on all the latest cloud data center news. Here are a few highlights:
Cirrus Tech, a provider of Web hosting services in Canada, recently turned to Data Centers Canada for its new private cloud infrastructure. Cirrus’ cloud hosting customers will benefit from Data Centers Canada’s colocation services with improved scalability and a fully resilient environment for housing private cloud servers.
This new partnership expands Cirrus’ existing geo-redundant Canadian colocation setup. Cirrus private cloud users will also benefit from having multiple locations for data housing and help with disaster recovery planning and setup. To read about the partnership, click here.
In other cloud data center news, TE Connectivity (News - Alert), a provider of Ethernet and telecom connectivity solutions, launched a new universal connectivity platform. Designed for speed and flexibility, the platform will facilitate data center migration from one to 100 GbE.
UCP, the advanced modular cabling concept, will support both copper and fiber component cabling. Ideal for rapidly changing network communications infrastructure environments where space is at a premium, the platform will also provide superior rack efficiency.

Finally this week, Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) (AWS) has created High Memory Cluster, a new Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance family designed specifically for memory-intensive applications, TMCnet reported.
High Memory Cluster instances are ideal for applications that require a large amount of memory on a single instance, or require taking advantage of distributed memory architectures.
High Memory Cluster instances are the most cost-effective Amazon EC2 instance and provide a lower cost per GiB of memory than all other instances, which are based on two Intel (News - Alert) Xeon E5-2670 processors which provide 88 EC2 Compute Units (ECUs) of compute capacity, two 120 GB solid state drives of instance storage, high bandwidth networking, and 244 GiB of RAM (News - Alert).
