Spark Integration Technologies Announces Newest Version of its Award-Winning Distrix Gateway Router Based on SDN Technology
VANCOUVER, British Columbia & SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Spark Integration Technologies, Inc. (www.sparkintegration.com),
a leading developer of software enabling simple, secure and resilient
networks, today announced the release of version 4 of its Distrix
Gateway (News - Alert) Router. Based on open software-defined network (SDN) technology,
Distrix 4 adds an array of features that substantially extend the
software's ability to dynamically create highly secure connections
across local- and wide-area networks.
Distrix 4 will be showcased at the Open
Networking Summit, in Santa Clara, Calif., March 3-5 (Kiosk S-7).
"Since its debut, Distrix has helped customers virtualize their networks
and turn them on their head by establishing connectivity on demand that
are controlled by the needs of the application," said Jay Friedman,
president of Spark Integration Technologies. "With Distrix 4, our
customers continue to reduce the time and costs of network deployment,
while also gaining significant advantages in monioring, flow control
and application development."
A Distrix Gateway forms a virtual network overlay that runs on top of
existing networks, making them simple, secure and resilient. The
solution also enables organizations to quickly and cost-effectively
implement advanced networks by refining rather than replacing existing
infrastructure. Distrix 4 adds to this powerful gateway router three
significant enhancements: extended monitoring visibility into network
flows; a new service-controller application to effectively configure and
control flows; and an extended RESTful application programming interface
(API) to allow external applications complete dynamic control over
network service creation and monitoring.
With Distrix 4, organizations can easily extend and scale their existing
remote connectivity, such as that provided by today's virtual private
networks. Dynamic provisioning is simple and requires no network
reconfiguration when an application or device needs a connection, while
still meeting IT security policies. By using multi-path routing and
intelligent traffic management services, Distrix 4 allows networks to
become self-healing and self-optimizing, making them especially adept in
dealing with bandwidth-constrained connections and unreliable links.
Distrix 4 employs enhanced network security to reduce the overall attack
surface of the network and of user applications, eliminating major
vulnerabilities hackers try to exploit.
