Both companies are long-term suppliers to the Federal government. The jointly-produced platform combines Bay Microsystems' industry-leading programmable packet processing solutions with N.E.T.'s expertise in delivering secure communications platforms. Additionally, Bay brings to the partnership its new 40 Gb technology in support of the Federal government's GIG roadmap.
"Bay has been enabling the Federal government to deploy robust broadband network solutions for a number of years. This partnership will substantially increase our reach and scale within our existing markets and open new opportunities for our products within commercial markets as well," said Chuck Gershman, president and CEO of Bay Microsystems. "N.E.T. has more than a twenty-year track record for first-to-market innovation, including integrating VoIP and other IP capabilities into existing networks. With their significant installed base of private, international and government networks, there are many opportunities for us to collaborate and add value for our mutual customers. Together, we will deliver the end-to-end quality of service, features and robust network user experiences that our customers demand."
"This is an important strategic step for the company, putting us squarely in the broadband business and extending the range and performance of networks that we deliver and service," commented C. Nicholas Keating, president and CEO of N.E.T. "Our intent is to bring new products to market more rapidly with trusted, capable partners. This development enables us to provide a more effective migration path for Promina networks and support for high speed security solutions for our long-term Federal customers. It also puts us in a leading position to deliver storage area networking (SAN) extension and Grid computing interworking solutions for government and commercial markets where secure, low latency, high-speed access to data is a requirement."
"The multiservice and Ethernet platform markets are large and expanding rapidly," said Scott Clavenna, chief analyst at Heavy Reading. "This partnership between Bay and N.E.T. looks promising, leveraging both companies' government market penetration and providing commercial upside as well. The platform feature list uniquely addresses current market requirements for high speed ports and scalable, multi-protocol interworking with hard QoS in a small form factor."
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.
