Apakau(TM) Announces Xylem(TM) Data Delivery Network at DEMO Enterprise 2014

Apakau Data Delivery Network for Enterprise Mobile and Web Applications to Be Featured in the Cloud Tools and DevOps Category on the DEMO Stage

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- Apakau Inc. (apakau.com) today announced that it will demonstrate its new enterprise solution Xylem Data Delivery Network (DDN) at DEMO Enterprise 2014, the world-renowned launch pad for the most innovative companies in enterprise, mobile, cloud computing, consumer, and social media technologies.

Apakau Xylem is an enterprise Data Delivery Network that assures lowest real-world data latency and maximum uptime for enterprise mobile and web applications.

DDN Alleviates Latency to Deliver Mobile and Web Transactions More Quickly and Reliably
Numerous studies show the detrimental effect of mobile and web latency on business productivity, customer experience, SEO rankings and conversion rates. Users expect mobile and web applications to perform quickly and reliably, and these expectations continue to rise.

Additionally, enterprise web and mobile applications face an ever-increasing threat landscape, including more sophisticated denial of service (DoS) attacks. Outages caused by DoS attacks diminish business productivity and jeopardize revenues, public image, and user loyalty.

The current strategy for mitigating risks of outages and minimizing latency relies on content delivery network (CDN) technology that caches content files -- but not application data -- at the edge nodes of the Internet, close to users. However, even with CDNs configured to optimize the performance of images, videos and files, enterprise mobile and web applications still experience latency when accessing data stored at, or processed by, remote origin databases or application servers. These servers are also exposed to DoS risks.

Xylem DDN Geo-Distributed Architecture Reduces Latency and Improves Reliability
Xylem DDN achieves low latency and maximum uptime using Xylem's geo-distributed architecture to intelligently cache application data at the edge nodes of the Internet, very close to users. Key benefits include:

  • Reduces data latency up to 90% compared to traditional methods of data access
  • Prevents outages due to traffic spikes or DoS attacks
  • Caches and routes critical application data to mask the address of the origin application server or database for heightened security
  • Maximizes data security from the origin all the way to the user by end-to-end encryption
  • Reduces both capital and operating expenses, and carbon footprint

These benefits can be realized through the simple incorporation of Xylem's application programming interface (API) suite for enterprise HTML5, iOS and Android applications. Whether cloud or legacy datacenter, no change is required to the existing application or datacenter infrastructure. Xylem also works hand in hand with content delivery network (CDN) services and/or application delivery controller (ADC) services to reduce latency and maximize uptime. Xylem dashboard provides key real-time information about latency, traffic, and threats on a geographical map.

"After traveling the country and vetting hundreds of companies on the DEMO Tour, we are excited to select Apakau to be one of the 27 companies launching new products solving big problems at DEMO Enterprise," said Erick Schonfeld, executive producer at DEMO.

Apakau will provide a live demonstration of Xylem on the DEMO Enterprise 2014 stage at 2:30 p.m. on April 3, 2014 and will host live demonstrations today at Booth D14 in the DEMO Enterprise 2014 pavilion.

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningful feedback on DevOps processes to all stakeholders. Learn from real-life examples how to use the dat...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will discuss the patterns and anti-patterns of DevOps, and what it means to ‘do the right thing’ in a DevOps...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

There are few trends in enterprise IT receiving more attention in 2016 than DevOps. A combo of the words "development" and "operations," DevOps is a term that can mean a lot of different things depending on the context. Sometimes it refers to specific software or hardware tools, e.g., a DevOps automation platform for spinning up test labs or sandboxes – but more often it is used to describe a broad new approach to culture within an organization.
