Millions depend on the accuracy, reliability and security of healthcare technology. As the healthcare industry evolves it has been forced to deal with the demands of new features, growing data sets, and interoperability between organizational boundaries.
Many cloud networking solutions can feel similar to walking with a rock in your shoe.
Public cloud. Multi-cloud. Data centers. On-premise hardware devices. Distributed application architectures.
The cloud has reshaped the way that data and applications interact. No longer is an application sitting next to the data it consumes. Because many modern applications are now provided as a service, and don’t reside in a customer’s data center, it has become increasingly difficult for SaaS providers to connect to the data they need.
Moving processing workloads into the cloud has helped companies lower their operating costs and build modern IT environments with high availability and elasticity.
The IT industry has been migrating from on-prem hardware and applications toward SaaS delivery for many years. This trend has accelerated as SaaS applications has become more feature rich, widely available, and generally accepted as cost advantageous.
Many of us can list a handful of examples where companies had high levels of market penetration, profitability, and a competitive moat that seemed impenetrable…only to end up failing due to lack of innovation. Kodak, Blockbuster, Blackberry are all examples of organizations that failed to follow modern technology and remain relevant.
With our latest release of the Trustgrid Portal, we’ve added enhanced alerting and monitoring capabilities to nodes. Trustgrid’s existing alerting features enabled our customers to monitor node life cycle information including – connections (up/down), profile updates (config changes), and health checks (health of remote hosts).
Cloud applications that depend on edge data suffer when an outage or slow down occurs on the network. Our latest release emphasizes fast and accurate triage by visualizing important data such as hardware resource consumption, network performance, and events.
Edge is about reducing latency between users or data and applications. In the cloud that might mean replicating to another availability zone. Globally there are dozens of locations that can get you lower latency.
We recently wrapped up extensive performance testing of our TLS based tunnels when compared to IPSec and direct (no encryption) connections. For the sake of brevity we’ll post the results in a series of blog posts.
Trustgrid enables cloud applications to integrate to localized data with low latency and high availability. SaaS providers connect to remote data sets over the Trustgrid network and can route data directly to local users without that data leaving the country.
