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.”
