Radware helps guarantee Infinity Interactive customers 100% uptime
Radware (Nasdaq: RDWR), a leading provider of Internet Traffic Management (ITM) solutions enabling continuous access to Web sites, IP applications and content, is proud to announce that more and more Internet Service Providers look to the Radware solution to create high availability, fault tolerance and redundancy in their networks. Incorporating Radware products into its network solution allows Infinity Interactive to give clients expanded service and unparalleled Web site performance. Infinity Interactive is an Austin, Texas-based Internet Service Provider and Web hosting company.
The recent creation of a Radware Strategic Alliances Team has fostered significant relationships with numerous Internet Service Providers (ISP) and Application Service Providers (ASP) including large national accounts as well as smaller regional operations. Radware's relationship with Infinity Interactive is part of a continuing focus to work with ISPs and ASPs to gain increased exposure and market share.
"Radware is aggressively targeting the ISP/ASP community to offer high availability to all of its customers," said Ron Yair, VP of strategic alliances at Radware Inc. "Radware and Infinity Interactive technology fit together perfectly, and we are proud they have chosen us to help promote their customers' e-business."
Radware's intelligent traffic management devices distribute traffic locally and globally while taking into consideration server health and load. Infinity Interactive provides companies the connection, services and equipment necessary to have a strong, reliable presence on the Internet.
Infinity Interactive utilizes Radware's smart load balancing devices to direct user requests as they are channeled through data centers in Austin, Texas and Tampa, Florida. Radware's WSD-Pros intercept user requests and route them to the most available Web server in either location, providing consumers with fast and hassle-free access to their favorite Web sites.
This strategic partnership with Radware enables Infinity Interactive to place its client's servers in more than one location, thus balancing the flow of their traffic between several servers and increasing the speed of their client's sites. The WSD-Pro detects which server is experiencing the most traffic and transparently distributes the user's request to the most available server. In addition to traffic optimization, the WSD provides local and global fault tolerance. If one of Infinity Interactive's data centers becomes overloaded or fails, user requests will be rerouted to alternate locations in the United States or even Europe.
"We believe that with Radware equipment in our facilities we will quickly be the first Web hosting company to guarantee 100% uptime to our clients," said Alan Tone, president of technical services and operations for Infinity Interactive. "This provides our clientele with a high degree of security and freedom never before offered when even a short downtime or slowdown can be disastrous to the operation of their business."
