ATLANTA, December 3, 2010 -- Asankya, Inc., the application delivery leader for network-intensive applications, announced today the issuance by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office of a patent for network monitoring which allows for greater efficiency and flexibility in capturing network traffic information.
U.S. Patent No. 7,742,404 relates to the monitoring of network traffic. Asankya's solution differs from conventional network monitoring, which allows only limited flexibility in choosing what type of traffic is captured and subsequently analyzed. With the expanding variety of services moving into the cloud, the need for more efficient and flexible network monitoring could not be greater. The innovative Asankya approach equips cloud service providers with a more secure network while accurately measuring network traffic and capacity, allowing greater efficiency for auditing and billing.
"Network monitoring is a critical element in the operation of network service," said Dr. Raghupathy Sivakumar, Asankya's CTO and founder. "This patent award recognizes Asankya's unique selective monitoring method of a variety of network properties including throughput, delay and loss at different configurable granularities. Moreover, it provides service providers with a rich but simple interface to specify what aspects of the network they are interested in monitoring."
Asankya operates the RAPIDnet Application Delivery Network (ADN) service, and licenses RAPIDnode products. Asankya serves its commercial and U.S. Federal customers on a global basis.
Asankya is the premier application delivery partner for network-intensive Internet applications. The company's patented technology powers the RAPIDnet Application Delivery Network (ADN). RAPIDnet is utilized by leading providers of Stoarge-aaS, online file servers, virtual desktops, private enterprise applications; and by agencies of the U.S. Federal government. Asankya is venture-backed by Veritas Venture Partners, In-Q-Tel, Georgia Research Alliance, Seraph Group and Ridgewood Advisors. Asankya is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.
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.
