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.
Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
