Multapplied Networks Announces Major Advancement of its Network Bonding Service

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) November 14, 2013

Responding to requests from its global network of distribution and implementation partners as well as from prospective partners, Multapplied Networks today announced that its development team has completed and released a major enhancement of its network bonding technology that removes any single-point-of-failure for customer networks.

About the Service:

Bonded Internet™ – the world’s fastest-growing advanced bonding service – allows customers of participating service providers to increase both network performance and resilience by combining the bandwidth of multiple Internet connections.

The Bonded Internet™ service, delivered by ISPs and other Managed Services providers globally, is made up of two key components. The service provider installs a network appliance (CPE) at the customer location and an “aggregation” server in their core infrastructure. The new software release allows partners to assign to their customers an alternate aggregation server to use in the event of a core disruption.

About the Release:

Targeted to fill gaps in the marketplace, this latest release provides reassurance to Multapplied’s channel partners that their Bonded Internet™ clients can compute-through a severe network disruption at their core. “After Hurricane Sandy, we realized we needed to move this feature’s development up the list,” said Multapplied’s President Johan Arnet, explaining the timely necessity of the release. “Anyone building or selling a network service has to include measures for business continuity; customers demand it. As ISPs and Cloud Service Providers offer more mission-critical applications – and as more and more customers rely on the availability of those applications – disaster-proofing your network becomes a basic necessity.”

With the latest release, end-user network appliances are now assigned a secondary Aggregation server to which Bonded Internet network sessions will automatically be rerouted in the event of a core outage at the site of the first aggregation server. Secondary aggregation servers can be in the same point-of-presence or strategically placed in other geographies. “The failover between aggregation servers occurs immediately once predefined triggers are hit. Downtime – that is, the time before the system automatically deems the aggregation server as being off-line – can be customized by the service providers who may have differing tolerance thresholds for an off-line core component.”

This latest release is the fifth major improvement of the year for Multapplied Networks’ Bonded Internet technology. Previously releases included improved partner web management, scalability improvements, and major CPE performance increases that drastically reduce dollar-to-throughput ratios for a broad range of hardware. The company has seen significant adoption of their technology since the public launch of their product in October of 2012.

About Multapplied Networks

Multapplied Networks is a network software developer with the vision of delivering cost-effective network products that multiply internet performance for corporate networks around the world. Our Bonded Internet™ software service combines the bandwidth of multiple Internet/access connections to provide customers with faster, more reliable networks. Bonded Internet™ is currently offered through distribution and implementation partners operating in Europe, Australia, and North America. The company began developing and deploying Bonded Internet™ in 2008. Since rebranding as Multapplied Networks in October of 2012, the company has become the leader in the category.

Service Providers looking to offer Bonded Internet™ to their customers are asked to contact Multapplied’s sales department at 866-578-6957.

London (PRWEB) June 17, 2013

Urban Cloud is a next-generation social network that has focused on five key areas of innovation:

Innovative Design Urban Cloud is the worlds first social media platform that seamlessly unites social networking and marketing.

Native Advertising Urban Cloud uses a proprietary algorithm called STAC (Space, Time, Active, Content) to blend advertising into a users social timeline.

Validation Urban Cloud is able to weed out unverified and fake/spam user accounts, allowing for an enhanced social media experience for advertisers and users.

Positive Reinforcement - Urban Cloud features a unique reward system, through which a user can accumulate points for interacting with a business. These can be redeemed for rewards to build brand loyalty and recognise social influencers all at once.

Retailing - Each and every user has the ability to retail virtual goods and services on the Urban Cloud platform.

Only half of what Urban Cloud will do has been released (and weve only developed another 20% of the idea). The rest is being given over to the people; their voices will influence what features are implemented next and how the cloud develops.

We are uniting people at the centre of an internet revolution. Having launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo we have placed Urban Clouds future into the hands of the world. The community will transform the platform through their collaborated ideas, influencing Urban Clouds direction, and the features implemented on the platform.

We are currently at the prototype stage of development, and are set to launch our second iteration in the coming weeks. It will allow users to create an account, post content and collaborate to improve the Urban Cloud experience for all.

We will also be periodically releasing improvements as the site develops and are set to launch in October.

Businesses out there need this in their lives and we are proud to be a part of it from the onset. Look forward to the future of social business enterprise - Chris Charalambous, Global Creative Director QUINTESSENTIALLY CREATIVE / LIFESTYLE

Indra Networks Announces StorCompress MX3 Hardware Compression Board for Virtual Tape Libraries

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2006

Indra Networks announced today the release of StorCompress MX3, a PCI-X compression board with a compression throughput of up to 450 MByte/s. MX3 implements compression algorithm entirely in hardware to enable Virtual Tape Library (VTL) and Disk-based backup systems to offer consistently high levels of throughput. MX3s compression is based on the lossless deflate algorithm, which delivers better compression ratio than older hardware compression technologies. In a VTL system, MX3 offers three explicit benefits: faster backups, increased disk capacity, and improved tape drive utilization.

StorCompress MX3 hardware architecture includes 64-bit, 133 MHz PCI-X bus interface and multiple compression engines working in tandem to deliver compression throughput of up to 450 MB/s and decompression throughput of up to 480 MB/s.

FalconStor Software, a leading provider of innovative network storage software, is working with Indra Networks to include support for MX3 in their VTL software. Indra has executed well with their new StorCompress MX3 board. It should be appealing to our VTL customers who wish to use data compression without sacrificing throughput. Support for their compression board will be offered in our next VTL software release scheduled for this quarter," said Bernie Wu, FalconStor's V.P. of Business Development.

VTL customers are the focus behind the design and architecture of MX3. The disk-based VTL market is going through the roof right now and I expect 2006 to be a banner year for this technology. Any adjunct technology that allows IT to cost effectively keep more data on disk should do well. We have defined this as Capacity Optimized Storage (COS). Indra Networks products can play a solid role in this segment of the market, said Arun Taneja, an analyst with Taneja Group, in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.

VTL systems need high performance data compression to cost effectively backup ever increasing corporate data. With compression throughput to match large-scale enterprise data loads and Indras industry-best hardware-based compression ratio, MX3 will enable our OEM customers to outperform their competitors. VTL users who are frustrated by the steep reduction in performance of their systems due to software compression will benefit most from MX3, said Anupama Anantharaman, V.P. of Business Development at Indra Networks.

StorCompress MX3 uses the deflate algorithm, which is compatible with the popular gzip and zlib open source software. This guarantees that the data compressed by StorCompress MX3 will be decompressible by gzip or zlib software running on the client computer or in the VTL system. Of course, this only becomes necessary if the StorCompress MX3 hardware is unavailable. In typical usage, MX3 compresses data on-the-fly as it is being written to disk by the backup software and decompresses it during data recovery. The hardware and software architectures are flexible enough to be quickly customized to an OEM customers unique needs. To integrate with MX3, a customer needs to make calls to the MX3 compression API from its VTL or backup software. Driver is available for Linux RedHat versions 7.2 and 9, and Fedora Core 1, 2, 3, and 4. Other notable features of MX3 include a kernel level API, CRC32 or Adler32 error checking for data protection, anti-expansion, parity error checking for both incoming and outgoing data, and built-in decompression engine to facilitate fast recovery of data. StorCompress MX3 hardware and software leverage Indra Networks five years of R&D in developing compression coprocessors to enable OEM customers to offer hardware compression with the shortest time to market.

Indras StorCompress products maximize network bandwidth, available storage capacity and system throughput through lossless data compression. Typical applications for StorCompress include Disk-To-Disk Backup, VTL, and data archival. Depending on the type and size of the data being compressed, StorCompress can reduce data size by 2x to 10x. By reducing the size of the data, on average, to about one-third of its original size with almost no CPU utilization, StorCompress products enable network servers and storage appliances to handle large amounts of data without affecting their throughput. When used in storage appliances, Indras products will allow OEMs to offer higher capacity products at a much lower cost.

Availability Product samples are available now with general availability on February 1, 2006. StorCompress MX3 carries a lead time of 8-12 weeks. For further enquiries, please send an email to, or call (925)-519-0609.
