The Hurricane Sandy's Aftermath Creating New Business Opportunities for Carrier

NEW YORK, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The storm that just recently hit the East Coast has created numerous opportunities in new business for Carrier Alliance Holdings Inc.'s (PINKSHEETS: CAHI) sub-division Netlinx. CEO Chris Panzeca commented on the new opportunities:

"We have received many calls from both new and existing customers inquiring about our services since Hurricane Sandy hit our area," said Panzeca. "We expect to increase our sales to our current customers as well as new customers who were impacted by the storm. They have come to the realization that we have solutions, that will help keep their business from being disrupted."

Panzeca went on to explain why Netlinx have unique services that will assist its customers:

"When the gale force winds and flooding from Hurricane Sandy left a record-setting swath of destruction, many VOIP companies that offer fully hosted services such as Netlinx allowed numerous East Coast business customers to weather the storm successfully from a communications and operations standpoint, even in the face of crippling devastation to their physical locations. Netlinx Hosted VoIP solution for enterprises has built-in intelligence to determine when a business's on-site phones stop functioning and can automatically re-route calls to alternative numbers provided by the customer.  These services can be monitored 24/7 in real time, and avert the impact of disasters by switching calls to phones off-site.  When businesses go into backup mode on their own premises, the set of services available to employees is often limited; however, with the cloud-based hosted solution that Netlinx provides, functionality remains consistent and full services are intact, even while calls are routed to alternate locations. VOIP providers such as Netlinx can offer businesses throughout the country the latest in voice and data services, business continuity and disaster recovery without the need and cost of purchasing an on-premises PBX of their own.  Services include IP Voice services (local and long distance), IP-VPN, high speed data and Internet services, and fully hosted PBX services, including IP telephone handsets.

"Traditional communication lines can fail and go out after power failures, in many cases internet access is still operational which allows businesses to still communicate with their clients, even in cases where internet has failed during such storms simple hosting allows auto attendants, voicemails to be still operational so clients are not getting fast busy signals or even worse the number you have reached is not in service message. In addition where internet fails hosted services can redirect the main numbers etc that a client has to other working telephone numbers such as cell phones or another office not effected during an emergency."

"This has lead to not only better credibility with our existing customers but word of mouth is starting to spread that Netlinx is a low cost highly efficient solution for many business.  We will update our shareholders as we have further information and sign on new business."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
