ELLICOTT CITY, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 05/08/14 -- Today, Salsa Labs and Port25 Solutions, Inc. jointly announced that Salsa Labs will utilize PowerMTA for its digital messaging infrastructure. Salsa Labs is a unique and easy-to-use SaaS marketing platform that helps nonprofits, green communities and political campaigns of all sizes to fundraise, advocate, communicate and organize online.
Clocking in at 3 billion digital messages sent annually with a peak delivery rate of 15 million emails per hour, Salsa Labs cited many important factors that influenced their switch from a more expensive and overly complex messaging system to PowerMTA. The challenges with their prior platform included management simplicity performance, reliability, higher cost, and failover complexities in case of server loss.
Scalability and cost were also influential concerns. Salsa Labs sought to deliver more messages with better performance and predictably scale while keeping costs linear. Additionally, Salsa Labs was aiming for a much higher ROI and a lower total cost of ownership for email infrastructure, coupled with a sensible budget for developmental and standby instances. These additional licenses were to be employed in a QA sending environment which required enterprise level throughput availability.
Because digital messaging infrastructure investments vary widely, Salsa Labs conducted extensive due diligence before selecting PowerMTA. One specific deliverability feature that aided Salsa Labs' decision to switch to PowerMTA was VirtualMTA pooling. PowerMTA supports the creation of VirtualMTA pools that can be used to load-balance message delivery for clients across several different VirtualMTAs. This deliverability method is used for time-sensitive campaigns, and is a great fit for many Salsa Labs clients, especially non-profit and politically based campaigns where donations are encouraged. Other important PowerMTA features that appealed to Salsa Labs included: detailed delivery and bounce data, advanced bounce characterization, flexible DKIM signing, and dynamic delivery adjustments based on real-time SMTP responses received by remote gateways.
Salsa Labs praised PowerMTA as an infrastructure solution that made sending large volumes of email simple and highly efficient. Making granular delivery setting adjustments and migrating were straightforward. The thousands of users who administer and deploy PowerMTA are always impressed with its effortless installation and configuration process on any platform. Salsa Labs works with more than 2,000 non-profit and political organizations, and they require a digital messaging platform that is simple and user-friendly but still powerful enough to meet the needs of their clients. By commissioning PowerMTA, Salsa Labs found the perfect balance of performance and value. PowerMTA allows them to effectively deploy, communicate and scale their digital messaging infrastructure with restored confidence.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
