Cloudy With (Just) A Chance of Data?

Published on July 23, 2014

Client/server business applications sit at the heart of your business, underpinning core operations, and these apps are driven by data - the lifeblood of your organisation.

When client/server business applications run on a Local Area Network (LAN) they perform fine.

But what happens when you want to deploy your business applications in the Cloud? How will they perform then?

Over a Wide Area Network (WAN) latency is introduced, which creates unacceptable performance and, in many cases, will cause the apps to crash. If the WAN runs across the public Internet, the problems become even more acute.  A key finding from the Cisco 2013 Global IT Impact Survey, which canvassed 1,321 IT professionals in 13 countries, underlines the challenges in moving applications to the Cloud.

Data Anywhere from Cloudhouse Technologies unblocks application migrations to the Cloud by providing a distributed WAN Accelerator specifically optimised for database traffic and delivered as an infrastructure software product. It provides a secure, reliable and accelerated connection between any Windows application and its SQL database, regardless of database location.

This means that any client/server application may be distributed to run over a WAN, either to enable remote access to centralised systems or to migrate application and/or database servers into consolidated data centers or the Cloud.  Either way, Data Anywhere allows a superior alternative to expensive, clunky, server-based computing, by delivering:

  • Native client/server deployment over a WAN with LAN-like performance
  • Enhanced reliability by masking data latency and connection losses
  • Minimised administration using automated tools

If you’re attracted to the economics of Cloud computing but are wondering how to make client/server apps work on this platform, Cloudhouse Technologies has the answer.  Contact us today.
