T5 Data Centers Receives Uptime Institute® M&O Stamp of Approval Across Data Center Portfolio

T5@Charlotte, T5@Dallas, T5@LA, and T5@Portland Join T5@Atlanta in Being Certified for Best-in-Class Infrastructure Management and Operations.

Atlanta, GA, USA -- T5 Data Centers™ (http://www.t5datacenters.com), innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, today announced that the company's entire portfolio of eligible data centers has received Uptime Institute's Management & Operations (M&O) Stamp of Approval. T5 Data Centers' T5@Atlanta facility was issued an M&O Stamp of Approval by the Uptime Institute in 2016, and this month T5@Charlotte, T5@Dallas, T5@LA, and T5@Portland also received the industry award.

The Management and Operations Stamp of Approval was created by Uptime Institute to provide an unbiased, independent assessment confirming a data center meets a set of benchmarks that promote effective data center best practices and minimize human error, which is the leading cause of data center failure. The M&O assessment evaluates all aspects of operations, including planning, coordination, and management; staffing and organization; training; operating conditions; and maintenance. Only a select number of data centers qualify for the M&O Stamp of Approval, and with additional awards issued this month, T5 Data Centers' entire portfolio of five eligible data centers have now achieved the M&O Stamp of Approval awards from Uptime Institute for outstanding management and operations.

"We know that having a world-class staff and adhering to proven management protocols is the key to success. We are proud of our track record of continuous availability across the T5 portfolio and our partner sites (i.e. sites that T5 Facilities Management operates as a third-party service). We are delighted to have the Uptime Institute M&O Stamp of Approval to validate our team's performance and our procedural excellence," said Mike Casey, President of T5 Facilities Management. "Minimizing risks while reducing operating costs is a commitment T5 makes to all of its customers. The fact that we had nearly perfect scores on the M&O audits demonstrates that we have the right people and procedures in place and are operating using best practices every day."

A 2016 study by the Ponemon Institute estimates that the cost of data center downtime now averages about $7,900 per minute. The report also determined that the average data center incident lasts 86 minutes at a cost of $690,200, and a total data center outage averages 119 minutes at a cost of $901,500. The Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council also reports that only 23 percent of organizations are adequately prepared for a data center outage. Uptime Institute's M&O Stamp of Approval provides independent assessment of data center excellence and standardization with optimal staffing, which means a reduced risk of downtime and lower operating costs.

"Achieving the M&O Stamp of Approval across the T5 Data Center portfolio illustrates the company's commitment to operational excellence," said Keith Klesner, Senior Vice President, North America for Uptime Institute. "Uptime Institute's M&O Stamp of Approval provides insights to help organizations manage risk and reduce operator errors to improve performance and productivity. This commitment serves to differentiate T5 Data Center in the industry as one of the leaders in operational excellence and best practices. We congratulate T5 Data Centers for receiving the M&O Stamp of Approval for all its eligible facilities."

DREAM Appeals to Those Studying Abroad: VeepWorks Pilots DREAM App with Midwestern State University Student at the Reigns

DREAM is a situational awareness mobile application intended for a variety of use cases, one being a group locator.

Dallas, TX, USA -- It is every parent's best and worst day when they send their college student to study abroad. They beam with pride that their child can experience the richness of a new culture; however, that same feeling can be met with high anxiety. Who can match the vigorousness of a parent's watch when they're outside of reach? No one. But, technology can.

Kara McIntryre, Mass Communication
Senior at Midwestern State University
It is called DREAM.

DREAM is a situational awareness mobile application intended for a variety of use cases, one being a group locator. In the instance where students are roaming a new country, eating at new places, and separating for individual interests, it becomes even more important to know where each person is - even if they are only a mile away.

DREAM - Personalized Situational Awareness
VeepWorks is the Dallas-based firm behind the technology. It wasn't by chance that they met Kara McIntyre, a Mass Communication senior at Midwestern State University, to extend the company's public safety mission. Kara left for London on July 6, 2017 with her university's study abroad program.

Away from the familiarity of Wichita Falls, Texas, safety will be more important than ever. In an effort to capitalize on the application's use while she's abroad, Kara will be using DREAM to stay connected with her classmates, all the while putting those closest to her at ease. "[The concern is] with our safety and how we can be more aware of our surroundings," stated Kara.

"Kara represents the generation where technology is second nature," stated VeepWorks' Founder and CEO, Aaron Madolora. "It works on both iPhone and Android devices and empowers students like her to explore the world confidently and privately knowing that her DREAM network of friends and family are a push of a button away."

Feedback towards DREAM has been positive and noted as one of the best mobile apps to use in emergency situations. Taking precautions as a student studying abroad demonstrates just one use case.

Downloads to date of the DREAM app has multiplied since January 2017 from 5,000 to 40,000 users.

For a direct download of the DREAM app, visit: http://www.veepworks.com/download.

Who do you know will benefit from the DREAM app? Learn more on http://www.veepworks.com, visit their Facebook http://www.facebook.com/veepworks, or engage @VeepWorks on Twitter.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, "High Spain Drifter" by Mark Krieger

High Spain Drifter, by Mark Krieger, follows cyclist Mark and his wife Roz, as they travel around Spain and Portugal's Iberian Peninsula.

Rosebud, Victoria, Australia -- Having previously cycled around France, Mark Krieger's High Spain Drifter continues his and his wife Roz's journey throughout Europe, this time around Spain and Portugal's Iberian Peninsula.

Following the footsteps of the Tour de France and Spain's Vuelta a Espana through the Pyrenees, Mark recalls many of cycling's memorable moments; some inspirational, and some that the sport would rather forget.

Across the border into Spain, summer is approaching, a time when Catalonians are in festival mode. Travelling west, there is a treacherous 'goat track', near Oviedo, that Mark's determined to conquer after two failed attempts.

Arriving in Portugal, the pair are enthralled by the country's history; events like the 'Age of Discoveries', the 1755 earthquake, the Carnation Revolution and the humble beginnings of Fado. Drenched in history and abundantly alive in the present, Lisbon proves an awesome exception to avoiding large cities when cycling.

Just as evocative in its own way is the small Spanish town of Trigueros. Once the sun goes down, its previously near-deserted streets come alive.

Continuing through the south of Spain, the travellers visit the Sierra Nevada range. It's here where Mark tries to fulfil another obsession; to cycle up its highest peak, Pico de Veleta. Much higher and harder than any mountain he's ever dreamed of tackling, its final kilometres of treacherous road make the thought of continuing seem foolish.

An avid cyclist, Mark has travelled widely throughout Australia, the United Kingdom and Europe. Now a retired schoolteacher, these passions, as well as his life-long interest in history, have become the catalyst for his writing. His and his wife's journey around France in 2009 - portrayed in his book, Lycra, Lattes and the Long Way Round - was the first of many wonderful adventures in the years ahead. Today, Mark and Roz live happily on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula.

Genre - cycling, travel, vuelta a espana, history, cinema, mountains, portugal, spain, fado, reconquista
