An Inside Look at Town Emergency Operations

Have you ever wondered how the Town of Holden Beach operates during emergency conditions like Hurricane Irene?  Well, Microsoft has written a case study on how the town uses new “cloud” computing technology to manage emergencies.

“The entire IT operation has been virtualized, says [Town Manager] David Hewett.  Holden Beach computers are directly connected to the GeniSys data center over a fiber optic connection…”  This “[ensures] continuity of operations when the town’s government had to leave with its residents.”

If you’re interested in learning more and reading the full case study, take a look at the link below:
