Worldnet 21 Technology Ltd and Crescendo Networks Ltd unveiled the Maestro platform to address both front-end and back-end application delivery issues for today's evolving data center requirements. Web-enabled applications, high-speed networks, cluster and blade computing strategies have created new data center business demands for performance, optimization and efficiency. Leveraging the Maestro platform, IT professionals in Spain can now address barriers along the entire application delivery chain to enable business-critical applications while increasing server computing resources, decreasing outbound bandwidth, reducing latency and lowering capital and operational costs.
"We see increasing demand from our sophisticated end-users for economic, reliable and profound solutions that handle traffic management, application efficiency and networks congestion", said Jose Ramon Alberola, managing director of Worldnet21 "We are impressed from the robustness and usability of the Maestro Platform.
By choosing Crescendo Networks' solutions our customers will benefit a substantial performance enhancement. Maestro Platform is evidently the best solution available in the market today to address both front-end and back-end application delivery challenges."
The Maestro platform is available as a baseline system and has three optional modules. The Maestro baseline system includes the CN-5000E Series appliance, which provides Application Front-end functionality with superior server performance enhancement technology, and the Maestro Management Module, an embedded element management system which expedites and facilitates provisioning, activation and monitoring. Options include the Maestro Security Module (protection against DDoS attacks and SSL offload), the Maestro Compression Module and the Maestro Back-end Acceleration Module.
Based on the company's patent-pending FreeFlow architecture and utilizing the Crescendo Short Life Transaction (SLT) server performance improvement technology, the CN-5000E Series ensures high performance and reliable access to all application resources.
Using Crescendo Networks' Maestro Platform customers should expect:
The Maestro platform is available through Worldnet21 in the Spanish market. "Signing a Reselling agreement with Worldnet21 opens a new era in Crescendo Networks marketing and sales activities in the Spanish Market," said Yaron Danieli, vice president of business development at Crescendo Networks. "Engagement with Worldnet21 very experienced and professional team will generate a lot of new opportunities for implementing Crescendo Networks solutions at Spanish end-users data centers."
"The Maestro Platform is unique in its ability to process traffic at very high volumes and will therefore help our customers withstand the tidal waves of users. We also expect to see improvements in latency times overall, helping our customers improve their overall site performance to satisfy end users," said Jose Ramon Alberola.
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
