MONROE, La. – CenturyLink, Inc. today announced the commercial availability of Hyperscale high-performance server instances offered through the CenturyLink Cloud platform. The new service is designed for web-scale workloads, big data and cloud-native applications.

CenturyLink Cloud includes dozens of self-service features that help enterprises run their mission-critical and business applications in the public cloud with ease. With Hyperscale, developers can now use the same platform to launch and manage advanced next-generation apps.

Hyperscale combines CenturyLink Cloud’s high-performance compute with 100-percent flash storage to deliver a superior experience for web-scale architectures built on Couchbase, MongoDB and other NoSQL technologies. Users of the service will consistently see performance at or above 15,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) for a diverse range of workloads. Hyperscale also is ideal for big data scenarios and serves as a complementary offering to CenturyLink’s existing Big Data Foundation Services.

CenturyLink today also announced expansion plans for the CenturyLink Cloud network of public cloud data centers, growing from nine to 13 locations in the first half of 2014. Starting in March, customers will be able to deploy virtual resources in Santa Clara, Calif., and Sterling, Va., with locations in Paris and the London metro market coming online in the second quarter of 2014. All CenturyLink Cloud services, including Hyperscale, will be available in these new locations.

This broad footprint offers more choice and flexibility for geo-targeted solutions and for boosting performance while ensuring data sovereignty. Customers can also deploy advanced IT configurations through the interoperability of public cloud, colocation, managed services and network solutions available through the CenturyLink Technology Solutions portfolio.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
