Broadview Networks Ranks on Crain’s New York Business List of Largest Privately Held Companies

Crain’s New York Business has released its annual ranking of the largest privately held companies in New York. Broadview Networks, a leading provider of hosted voice, data and cloud computing solutions, based in Rye Brook, has placed 56th in this year’s rankings. Crain’s list of the top privately held companies is published annually and is the most comprehensive report of its kind.

The report is based on 2011 revenues and was compiled using data obtained from the companies themselves, as well as independent sources, including Crain’s, Forbes, Dun & Bradstreet, Gale Group, Hoover’s and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

“Broadview continues to rank high on this impressive list of companies because we deliver communications solutions with real value,” said Broadview’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Michael K. Robinson. “Services like OfficeSuite, our cloud-based phone solution, pay for themselves by boosting businesses’ productivity and customer satisfaction, and helping them avoid disasters, from the everyday ones to ones such as Hurricane Sandy. We continue to see good growth for cloud-based products since they are both easy to use, and don’t require companies to spend precious capital for new technology.”

The complete report was published in the November 19 issue of Crain’s New York Business. For more information, visit http://www.crainsnewyork.com.

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.
