XRoads Networks Cautions Businesses to Heed Warnings From Hurricane Sandy for "Bandwidth Continuity"

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- XRoads Networks, a leading provider of unified bandwidth management platforms, today urged customers and SMBs to take steps now to insure that their critical technology infrastructure could withstand a natural disaster such as Hurricane Sandy. The storm has devastated the operations of thousands of businesses along the Eastern seaboard and many firms were ill-prepared for a weather-related event that has effectively shut down operations especially in Metropolitan New York and New Jersey.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, XRoads Networks is offering companies a courtesy check to make sure that they have the facilities in place to avoid network downtime in the event of a natural disaster. XRoads Networks UBM products enable customers to stay connected to cloud-based services and the Internet even in the event of a major network outage.

According to the company, many EdgeXOS platform customers stayed connected to the Internet even during the worst of the storm due to the appliance's ability to detect outages and intelligently route traffic over the optimal network connections. Even when all land lines were down the EdgeXOS platform was able to maintain connectivity for customers with 3G/4G backup links. As businesses continue to recover from Sandy, now is the perfect time for a company's IT staff to take steps needed to maintain connectivity for the next big weather event. XRoads is offering a free assessment to businesses in order to make sure that they are ready for the next "storm," in whatever form it may take.

XRoads Networks, the inventor of Broadbond technology which bonds multiple Wide Area Network links together for additional bandwidth and instant network failover, offers a line of UBM products that provide alternative routes to backup Internet services in the event of a data center failure. The company's innovative Broadbond technology aggregates multiple ISP links which accelerates network downloads during normal use and, in the event of a major outage event, automatically and seamlessly fails over traffic to backup connections, including 3G/4G connectivity.

XRoads Networks' UBM products can make adaptive changes to how inbound server traffic is handled in the event of a data center failure. The EdgeXOS platform can dynamically change where that traffic is sent in order to ensure continued access by remote users. XRoads Networks created ActiveDNS technology as demonstrated in its 2004 Vector Routing patent application, which outlines how DNS path information can be injected in to the Internet's DNS servers to dynamically change inbound server routing in order to facilitate automated geographic data center failover and/or server load balancing functionality.

Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to impr...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved.
