New Low-Latency Direct Access Service for Dual-site Servers in Switzerland and Russia

ZURICH, BERNE, Switzerland and MOSCOW, August 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


IXcellerate, IX Swiss and IP-Max SA are proud to announce a joint venture co-operation for the supplying of full solution data protection services between the Russian and Swiss markets.

With IXcellerate's Tier3 datacenter in Moscow, and the datacenters of IX Swiss AG in Zurich and Berne, customers are offered blended solutions that cover all data security, location, storage and transport concerns.

The two datacenter companies are working in co-operation with Geneva based ISP IP-Max SA, already connected to Moscow and supporting companies with its very low latency backbone. IXcellerate is able to provide direct access into a pipeline to Switzerland and the IX Swiss datacenters, also connected to the IP-Max Backbone.

As a Swiss registered company, IX Swiss services are covered by the stringent data protection laws of the Swiss Confederation. The laws ensure confidentiality of any data stored by companies and individuals within the Swiss borders. This offers the highest legal protection of data anywhere in Europe. IXcellerate's location within the Russian Federation ideally meets the needs for organisations to comply with the new Russian Federation Laws on data protection. The combination of the two locations provides for the needs of some of the world's most data-sensitive companies.

IP-Max, also a Swiss company, with a 10Gbps redundant network within Switzerland and its European backbone ring linking major cities, has the ability to offer fully encrypted connectivity between the data centres of IXcellerate in Moscow and the IX Swiss locations. With encryption expertise and state of the art equipment being employed to ensure the highest level of security, the data carried is only accessible in the countries where business is being carried out. This product is intended to protect financial and business critical data from external abuse, managing it within a truly protected environment.

This venture offers a unique and exciting package of services that ensures secure business continuity, inside and between the Russian and Swiss marketplaces.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
