By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor
The Cloud Front Group has stated that an assured data delivery mechanism will be available for the Iridium (News - Alert) satellite network. It will be available with Saratoga Data Systems’ Flume Network Optimization product.
Flume is an Internet communication protocol that gets rid of the effects of latency on data communications. While being completely compliant with TCP/IP standards, Flume considerably increases Internet data throughput. While efficiently sharing Internet bandwidth with conventional communication traffic, Flume accomplishes this incredible acceleration.
Cloud Front Group, Inc. was established to implement a complete package of business resources, processes and tools. These processes and tools can be modified to each client to enable the efficient delivery of goods and services over the “last mile” between the company and the U.S. government. This will be done by reducing credibility and viability risks and achieving the successful and “ahead of the curve” deployment of “leading edge” technologies in the U.S. government.
John Mackay (News - Alert), president of the Cloud Front Group, stated, “Flume represents real value to current and potential Iridium Satellite (News - Alert) system users as it allows assured delivery of data using commodity PC hardware. Flume allows users to send data to other Iridium users anywhere in the world with absolute confidence that the data is going to arrive, with absolute accuracy. The Cloud Front Group is very pleased to offer its partners and customers this cost effective and breakthrough data capability for world wide data delivery.”
In March 2012, IceWEB, Inc., a provider of unified data storage appliances for cloud and virtual environments, entered into a partnership with Cloud Front Group. According to the agreement, Cloud Front Group will offer a turnkey big data analytics solution with the help of Cloud Front Group's big data analytical expertise. The company will also use Cloudera's Apache Hadoop-based software and IceWEB's (News - Alert) Unified Data Storage Systems.
