NSA Computer Exchange Corporation Unveils Data Protection Cloud Suite

Hicksville, NY (PRWEB) June 17, 2014

After nearly six months in research and due diligence, Hicksville-based NSA Computer Exchange Corp. has launched its Cloud Suite solution. Cloud Suite powered by Axcient is a disaster recovery, business continuity, and monitoring solution for small- to medium-sized businesses.

The main purpose of the Cloud Suite is to protect businesses from data loss due to man-made issues (fire, theft, accidents, etc.), natural disasters (flood, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc.), or server outages, and get them back on their feet in a fraction of the time of other solutions available today. NSAs focus and client commitment is providing the most user friendly, responsive, and intuitive cloud recovery system on the market. More focus was put into making sure the product could adequately protect businesses from the trials of sudden disasters.

Speaking of the new cloud computing tools, Patrick VanPutte, President of NSA Computer Exchange Corp., said that, “So many of our customers that have experienced natural disasters have suffered significant losses due to data loss. If the original hardware holding backup information is unavailable or damaged, this means weeks of waiting for data recovery. Catastrophic data loss is the demise of many companies — most never recover or reopen. I often talk to CEOs and business owners that are constantly worried about protecting their data. NSA has installed systems that help our customers sleep better at night.

NSAs Cloud Suite takes virtual images of client servers, operating systems, applications, and other vital company data, and caches it into an onsite appliance, which sends encrypted images to the cloud. Whether the main physical server is down or not, NSAs Cloud Suite solution can give a company access to its data within minutes. NSAs Cloud Suite gives businesses the tools they need to back up, monitor and access their data quickly and easily.

Providing clients with complete data protection in a simple web interface, no matter what the situation, is the main benefit of using the new NSA Computer Exchange cloud computing system. Cloud Suite mitigates risks that come with doing business in the digital age. “Even when a server is down, there will be no downtime for the business, as it is running from the cloud suite,” VanPutte said. “With just a simple click, the NSA Cloud Suite solution lets you restore lost data in minutes, not days, weeks or even months like other solutions. This clearly minimizes risks and hazard costs.”

About NSA Computer Exchange Corp.:

NSA Computer Exchange has been in the business of solving problems and providing solutions for wholesale distributors across the country since 1984. Neil Smilowitz, founder and Pat VanPutte, President and CEO continue to lead NSA today by providing innovative and personable solutions to businesses from coast to coast. Change, whether internal or external, is inevitable. With technology, the velocity of change is ever increasing. Business today does not stand still. Businesses that make proactive decisions instead of reacting to undesirable circumstances usually take the lead. Let NSA’s knowledge and expertise help you take the lead. For more information, visit

Xangati Unveils StormTracker The Industrys First Solution to Tackle Performance Storms Devastating Productivity in the Cloud

Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2012

Xangati, the recognized leader in performance management for virtualization and cloud environments, today unveiled StormTracker, the industrys first solution to immediately identify cross-silo storm patternsthrough live storm detection as they emerge in a cloud infrastructure. According to a recent ZK Research report, over 90 percent of virtualization admins believe existing management tools dont provide the integrated insight of how server+hypervisor, network and storage interact, which inhibits ITs ability to effectively manage cloud performance. (See related release here.) For the first time, Xangatis StormTracker gives organizations the ability to instantly identify storms, proactively track their impact and know how to remediate them by processing second-by-second insights spanning all interactions occurring throughout the cloud infrastructure.

StormTracker includes a new, robust, in-memory storm detection sub-engine integrated into Xangatis flagship Performance Management Engine which leverages a next generation computing architecture; and an interactive and contextual UI with multiple views into the entire cloud environment. In addition, Xangati has integrated performance management with capacity management to deliver essential insights to admins to ensure they right-size the expansion of their cloud hardware infrastructure.

All of the new StormTracker functionality will be integrated into the companys award-winning Xangati Management Dashboard (XMD) suite as well as its Xangati for vSphereFree single host tool. StormTracker will also be available as a free upgrade for existing Xangati customers. Xangati will showcase StormTracker at VMworld San Francisco August 26-30, Booth #2413.

Assuring cloud performance is top of mind for every IT executive seeking to transform their data center. Unfortunately for these executives their clouds are being devastated by transient performance storms flying in under the radar of their pre-existing monitoring solutions, said Alan Robin, CEO of Xangati. Only Xangati is rising to the challenge of managing the always in flux cloud infrastructure with StormTracker empowering administrators to instantly identify emerging storms. And even more importantly provides exclusive insight on how to avoid these storms in the future.

Traditional alert monitoring solutions were designed to focus on shifts in individual metrics in a pre-cloud data center environment, said Zeus Kerravala, founder and principal analyst with ZK Research. My research shows that admins are uncomfortable with this model, given how the data center has evolvedinvestigating alerts is akin to chasing ones tail. By tracking storm fronts and their source, Xangati empowers IT to always understand how their cloud is behaving and to instantly identify emerging stormssaving valuable time and resources, while allowing them to anticipate and avoid future storms.

StormTracker Captures What Competing Solutions Miss Transient Storage, CPU, Memory and Network Storms

Inherently sluggish database-driven alert monitoring solutions fail to identify storms for two primary reasons. The first is that their after-the-fact architectures miss short-term shifts that are a mainstay of transient storms. The second is that chasing stand-alone metric alerts is only presenting an isolated symptom and doesnt get one to cause. That is why alert monitoring fosters post-mortem analysis which puts IT in an unproductive reactive posturewhere uncovering the source of storms is regularly taking anywhere from two hours up to days.

In contrast, Xangati StormTracker highlights storms instantaneously as they emerge, with key features including:

New York Based Tech Firm Unveils Django-Based Web Application Solutions for Online Businesses – Enabling Rapid Web Application Development with Minimal Fuss

New York (PRWEB) April 11, 2013

Django is an Open Source web framework that enables site owners to build clean and feature-rich web applications with minimal time and effort. This high-level Python Web framework encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design to build high-performing web apps. Simplifying the amount of work involved in building websites and apps, the Django framework accomplishes most of what businesses need with a speedy process that eliminates unnecessary waiting around for start up. Hitherto, Django is one of the best tools for building web apps when time and flexibility is important. In short, Django lets creation of web applications and websites to the highest standard as quickly as possible. And to help online businesses harness the power of Django to build superior performing websites, the New York based firm has launched Django web application development services geared towards the SMB market.

Unlike other web frameworks, Django is known for its customizability and adaptability and thus considered the best tool when time and flexibility is important. By creating admin interface, tables, and model classes automatically Django drastically reduces the time needed to update content. Given that time really does equate to money in some businesses, this is the most preferred web framework. Automating many of the tasks that are necessary to manage content, it delivers dynamic database-access API, while still allowing owners to use SQL when desired. In doing so, it provides high-level abstractions of common Web development patterns, shortcuts for frequent programming tasks, and clear conventions for problem solving. The other benefits offered by framework are
