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.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Digital transformation is about embracing digital technologies into a company's culture to better connect with its customers, automate processes, create better tools, enter new markets, etc. Such a transformation requires continuous orchestration across teams and an environment based on open collaboration and daily experiments. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Alex Casalboni, Technical (Cloud) Evangelist at Cloud Academy, explored and discussed the most urgent unsolved challenges to achieve full cloud literacy in the enterprise world.
CloudEXPO | DevOpsSUMMIT | DXWorldEXPO Silicon Valley 2019 will cover all of these tools, with the most comprehensive program and with 222 rockstar speakers throughout our industry presenting 22 Keynotes and General Sessions, 250 Breakout Sessions along 10 Tracks, as well as our signature Power Panels. Our Expo Floor will bring together the leading global 200 companies throughout the world of Cloud Computing, DevOps, IoT, Smart Cities, FinTech, Digital Transformation, and all they entail. As your enterprise creates a vision and strategy that enables you to create your own unique, long-term success, learning about all the technologies involved is essential. Companies today not only form multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures, but create them with built-in cognitive capabilities.
