Experience in developing network of information systems has enabled us to rethink the approaches to the creation of distributed network software and offer a solution to the problem - technology platform Kalpa.Cloud.
Decisions based on Kalpa.Cloud:
- Preventing leaks of corporate information
- Ease of administration.
- Savings of traffic.
- The ability of the customers to work at low speeds.
- Reducing the cost of maintenance of a Kalpa.Cloud-bases software system.
- Reducing the cost of hardware.
- Net applications with advanced graphical user interface.
- Same speed and comfort in a local network or on the Internet.
- Compact client realized for major operating systems.
We know and can articulate the requirements presented for modern, progressive companies.
Modern companies are actively expanding, creating remote branches.. In a geographically dispersed environment, requirements for integration into a single information system are not just a comfortable supplement, but the only possible condition for the survival of the company through the control and management of remote units.
Existing IT solutions developed in an era of local networks did not expect the work in a globalized world.
The main risks in modern information systems are corporate data leaks. Direct access to information allows staff to copy it to control external drives or transfer files over the network. Similar incidents have rightly called the main problem of modern information systems. Most embedded software architecture using a «thick client», which implies the existence on the side of the client uncontrollable array of data, or targeted to the «Documents». The first and second concept implies the possibility of unauthorized copying and data leakage. A particularly dangerous, such outdated architecture for use in mobile applications, or small remote offices, where staff with mobile computers can be directly compromised, or subjected to physical pressure in order to capture the computer and as a consequence, the information resource.
The concept of a centralized data repository on the server side and a thin client interface, allowing to solving these issues at the level of architecture. There are no user information, documents and materials stored at work. Access to information resources is possible only through a special interface. Malicious copied information is impossible. Portable personal computers did not become a zone of risk of information leakage. Remote small offices with under-developed security regime are protected from leakage and blocking the work through the information control or other harsh measures.
Effective maintenance costs during the economic crisis, suggests the possibility of rejection of their own expensive server resources and division of their support for the hosting of operators, thus locating the point of possible leakage of information. In this case, the determining factor of success becomes possible migration server infrastructure and speed the deployment of the complex.
System platform Kalpa.Cloud allow most effectively and quickly move the server part of the system to favorable or suitable sites within the corporate network, or rent the resources of external operators of auto sources.
For corporate users the claim advanced graphical user interface, which becomes decisive in addressing issues of ergonomics and efficient use of staff time. Obviously, the solutions-based HTML (web interface), using a standard Web browser can not meet these requirements. The volume of data generated and transmitted to ensure the interface requirements, the speed of generation of interface on the client side and cognitive ability web interface was not sufficient to ensure good corporate user needs.
System platform Kalpa.Cloud allows you to create network program indistinguishable from the local to the functionality, speed of response and cognitive properties.
Modern corporate information is multiplatform environment. A wide range of equipment and operating systems, increasing the share of Macintosh computers and Linux based systems, along with the traditional Windows systems, the use of lightweight (notebook) and pocket computer determines the requirement of multiplatform. Existing systems are typically mono-platforms and do not contribute to the development of heterogeneous networks.
System based on platform Kalpa.Cloud allows the client to use any of the most commercially successful operating systems.
We know that quality and provided flow does not always match the industrial demands of the corporate client. This is the same regarding the server connection and the client. The system of the server, serving a substantial number of client connections can consume a hefty network share. If we talk about a client, in a geographically distributed information environment, it may experience difficulties with the given bandwidth. Individual users may experience difficulties connected to mobile networks. The existing market information systems are usually very demanding for telecommunication resources. This applies as well to the server system and for the client connection. Increased demands are required for Web-based applications and terminal connections. It is known that the use of terminal solutions (Citrix) at the flow of 2Mb / s allows a server with good comfort for the user's service from 7 to 14 simultaneous connections, which is unacceptable for modern distributed information systems, the number of customers in more than 1000 compounds.
Platform Kalpa.Cloud originally designed as an extremely undemanding to telecommunications. Field tests showed the possibility to work with interfaces, even at speeds of 14400, and the user speed range (64K-256K) provide stable comfort.
The proposed technology in the market of network information systems is very resource-intensive. Web-based solutions platform Java (well as other well-known technology) does not allow coping with the load on the system that calls for the selection of the extensive development of computational tools. Troubleshooting usually lies in the acquisition and installation of expensive servers, industrial level or in the creation of cluster computing systems.
System platform Kalpa.Cloud kept the load on the corporate information environment, using standard computing systems in consumer or lower corporate level. In practice, this means that the Kalpa-effective solution would be to work on cheaper hardware.
The server is located in one place. Updating the software package comes on a single server machine, invisibly to the user.
