SysMaster Announces Breakthrough Norfa Lite Product Featuring Intelligence-at-the-Edge Architecture

Reducing Central Server Load Enables Vast Efficiency Gains at a Much Lower Cost

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- VoIP solutions innovator SysMaster announces the debut of its landmark Norfa Lite(TM) platform, which enables service providers to cost effectively deploy and manage IP Centrex/Hosted PBX systems. Norfa Lite features Intelligence-at-the-Edge architecture, which shifts the handling of resource intensive call processing tasks from central servers to economical end-user CPE devices, such as the Tornado M5 IP Phone. This opens up significantly greater server capacity to handle higher traffic volumes and carry out cost-effective billing and call management.

Norfa Lite is extremely scalable and cost effective billing and call management platform which enables service providers to quickly deploy residential and business IP Centrex/Hosted PBX systems. Norfa Lite utilizes Intelligence-at-the-Edge architecture in which central servers perform billing, routing, and other call management functions whereas end user devices, such as the Tornado M5 IP Phone, deliver IP Centrex/PBX functionality (call-on-hold, call-transfer, 3-way calling etc.). Shifting resource intensive functionality to end user devices allows increase in system capacity and reduction in overall and per user costs.

Burdening central servers with cost-ineffective call processing tasks has long put a crimp in profitability for providers offering residential and business VoIP services. Enabling a cheap end-user device to take over is being hailed as a leap of progress. Providers instantly gain capacity and scalability on equipment, reducing capital outlay and raising ROI. And since end-users purchase their own CPE devices, they now essentially share call processing costs, giving service providers even lower overall infrastructure costs and offering yet another margin of savings.

While Norfa Lite promises major benefits to larger telecoms, it delivers even greater proportionate benefits to smaller service providers, increasing their profit margins and making it easier for them to compete effectively and satisfy customers. SysMaster is noted for the smooth scalability of its products, and Norfa Lite reflects that simplicity. As a service provider grows, adding new subscribers is as easy as installing an additional Tornado M5 IP Phone-paid for by the subscriber. Thus, costs of growth are minimal for provider and customer alike.

Highly fault-tolerant, the Norfa Lite Intelligence-at-the-Edge architecture enables easy implementation of N+1 redundancy through domain name addressing and redundant servers. If one server fails, another instantly picks up call traffic, ensuring carrier-grade system uptime and reliability. The Norfa Lite platform is being welcomed by service providers as a major new resource enabling affordable, cost-efficient growth.

The technologies behind big data and cloud computing are converging quickly, offering businesses new capabilities for fast, easy, wide-ranging access to data. However, to capitalize on the cost-efficiencies and time-to-value opportunities of analytics in the cloud, big data and cloud technologies must be integrated and managed properly. Pythian's Director of Big Data and Data Science, Danil Zburivsky will explore: The main technology components and best practices being deployed to take advantage of data and analytics in the cloud, Architecture, integration, governance and security scenarios and Key challenges and success factors of moving data and analytics to the cloud
SYS-CON Events announced today that DatacenterDynamics has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 18th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on June 7–9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addresses many of the challenges faced by developers and operators as monolithic applications transition towards a distributed microservice architecture. A tracing tool like Jaeger analyzes what's happening as a transaction moves through a distributed system. Monitoring software like Prometheus captures time-series events for real-time alerting and other uses. Grafeas and Kritis provide security polic...
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
Dynatrace is an application performance management software company with products for the information technology departments and digital business owners of medium and large businesses. Building the Future of Monitoring with Artificial Intelligence Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like "How is my application doing" but no idea how to get a proper answer.
