Incapsula to Double Global Network Capacity by End of Year

Company to Add 15 New Points of Presence (POPs) and Grow Network Capacity Beyond 1.5 Tbps

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- Incapsula, the cloud-based website security and performance service, today announced plans to significantly increase its infrastructure capacity. Responding to both customer capacity demand, and increasingly sophisticated DDoS attacks, the company will bring its total Points of Presence (POPs) to 30 and increase its global coverage and network capacity to surpass 1.5 Tbps, and ensure zero impact during the largest possible attacks. Each of Incapsula's POPs will also be upgraded to cache 30 times more than its current capacity.

Over the past four quarters, the number of websites protected by Incapsula grew by over 600 percent. Incapsula is now used by some of the largest consumer electronics brands, online retailers, financial institutions and SaaS companies worldwide.

"Website and cloud application performance are as critical as they have ever been, and security challenges show no signs of abating," said Gur Shatz, co-founder and CEO. "As a result we are seeing record adoption of our service, and are increasing capacity to meet future demand."

The market for Incapsula's security and performance services continues to expand, fueled by rapid growth of SaaS online services and by the evolution of cyber threats, including high-volume DDoS attacks. Incapsula's recent DDoS Threat Landscape report showed that DDoS botnet activity increased by 240 percent over the last 12 months, driving up the demand for company's DDoS protection solutions. Incapsula's earlier Bot Traffic report also points to increased activity of hacker-owned bots, used for corporate espionage, website hijacking and data theft. Incapsula findings revealed that in 2013 these malicious bots accounted for over 31 percent of all Internet traffic.

In 2013, in response to these threats, Incapsula grew its network capacity by 500 percent. This year, the company plans to double its global network, expanding it from 16 to 30 high-powered data centers. In Q1, Incapsula already activated new data centers in Seattle, Dallas, and Paris, with more coming online in Toronto, Mexico City, Madrid, Lima, Seoul, Stockholm, Warsaw and other major cities around the globe.

The company is also building several "Mega POPs" in each region to deal with the largest possible attacks. When completed, Incapsula's network capacity will surpass 1.5 Tbps.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right. Practices that work for small scale continuous testing may not be sufficient as the requirements grow.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
Security, data privacy, reliability, and regulatory compliance are critical factors when evaluating whether to move business applications from in-house, client-hosted environments to a cloud platform. Quality assurance plays a vital role in ensuring that the appropriate level of risk assessment, verification, and validation takes place to ensure business continuity during the migration to a new cloud platform.
