SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Infineta Systems, the first and only provider of WAN optimization solutions for Big Traffic workflows, announced today that the company has been selected as a Finalist for the Tech Trailblazer Awards (#TTAwards) for 2012 in the Networking Category. The Tech Trailblazer awards recognize start-up companies from around the world for their technological innovation and entrepreneurial excellence. Infineta Systems was shortlisted for the award because of its innovative approach to solving today's untenable growth of enterprise data and the aggressive adoption of high-speed replication, cross-site virtualization and Big Data, which are all pushing the inter-data center WAN to its breaking point.
"Being shortlisted as a Trailblazer is tremendous validation of the innovative approach Infineta has taken to solving high-speed inter-data center WAN acceleration," said Haseeb Budhani, Chief Product Officer for Infineta Systems. "Managing the ever-growing traffic rates between data centers is a major challenge for enterprise IT groups, and Infineta's solution provides a cost-effective way for enterprises to drive more traffic between data centers."
Infineta's Data Mobility Switch (DMS) is the only WAN optimization system that leverages merchant-silicon to deliver a distributed, high-performance platform with processing (port-to-port) latencies averaging well under 100 microseconds. Infineta's DMS brings together multiple patented hardware and software inventions in a purpose-built appliance that operates anywhere from 100Mbps to 10Gbps speeds.
The DMS supports the next generation of advanced data center architectures that leverage key innovations around high-performance computing, storage, and service delivery models.
As a result, companies can:
- Effectively expand the usable capacity of all WAN links by 5x or more.
- Mitigate the effects of latency on applications traversing WAN links, enabling full utilization (99%+) of expensive WAN bandwidth, regardless of distance.
- Granularly partition their inter-data center WAN links for use by multiple applications simultaneously.
- Significantly reduce OpEx by utilizing a cost-effective, shared WAN such as an MPLS VPNs for inter-data center connectivity instead of the expensive point-to-point circuit.
- Safely provision IP-VPNs without worrying about the debilitating impact of packet loss on such links.
Winners for each Tech Trailblazer category are determined by a public vote and will be announced via Twitter (@Techtrailblazer) on December 18, 2012. Voting begins today, Tuesday, November 20 at techtrailblazers.com/vote and will continue through December 14. Infineta encourages everyone to get out and vote over the next few weeks!

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
