When it comes to improving the reliability of computing infrastructure, global enterprises rely on Translattice Global Application Platform. The company has recently unveiled an innovative approach that according to the company would bring about a radical change in the way enterprise applications and data are provisioned. This is also going to significantly reduce costs and deployment complexity, while improving system reliability. By anticipating application and data needs based on policy, usage and geography, the newly launched Translattice application is expected to deliver information when and where it is needed.
According to Translattice, its application enables organizations to improve application performance and easily scale IT capabilities while ensuring business continuity. Translattice is thus expected to introduce a fundamental transformation in enterprise architecture.
“With the growing complexity of global enterprise computing, including support for remote offices and mobile workers, application performance challenges are often magnified, yet can be more difficult to identify, diagnose and proactively prevent. IT professionals are expected to deliver applications with consistently high availability and performance to global and mobile workers. They must also deliver a highly elastic and robust infrastructure under tight budgets. Translattice's approach creates a new opportunity for IT professionals to hit both targets,” Jasmine Noel, technology analyst and co-founder of Ptak, Noel and Associates, said.
Business continuity, scalability and application performance have always been critical to well-running applications. Cloud computing has become quite prominent. Yet enterprise customers are often concerned about the security aspect and control over their data in the cloud. At the same time, conventional architectures often present significant challenges in preserving application availability and delivering acceptable performance, especially for remote and mobile workers. Present enterprise system architecture is characterized by the centralized deployment of most of the applications. A wide range of technologies, such as federation, WAN optimization, and local database replicas are used as part of a patchwork approach to improve performance and reliability for remote workers. However, as long as infrastructure remains fundamentally centralized, reliability and user experience will remain problematic.
Under this backdrop, Translattice offers a completely different approach to computing infrastructure for distributed applications. With Translattice, fundamental infrastructure components such as load balancing, application runtimes, and relational storage reside on identical, easily deployed nodes.
The enterprises with global presence can especially benefit from Translattice, as with its application, the computing infrastructure of the companies can be spread across global enterprises, allowing even small and remote offices to enjoy increased user productivity and improved performance.
Capacity and scalability are easily increased by adding nodes, which may be deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or a combination of both. If a site becomes unreachable due to an outage, geographic redundancy preserves the availability of applications and data.
“By starting from scratch, we've created a system that meets the needs of today's global enterprises. We combined novel approaches with the best work from industry and academia in distributed technology. The result is what has eluded the industry for 30 years: a fully distributed application environment with no single point of failure or bottlenecks,” Michael Lyle, CTO and co-founder of Translattice, summed up.
