Mushroom Networks Expands Reach of Innovative Broadband Bonding™ Solutions through New Partnership with Impartial-IT

France-Based Impartial-IT will resell Mushroom Networks' Truffle, PortaBella and other cost-effective, time-saving telecom networking solutions to businesses located in countries worldwide.

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mushroom Networks, Inc., innovators of Broadband Bonding technology, today announced a partnership with Impartial-IT, an IT company that provides consulting services, project management and distribution of hardware and software. Impartial-IT will now provide Mushroom Networks' patented solutions to both large enterprises, SMBs and governments in countries including France, Belgium, Switzerland, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria and North Africa, giving companies access to fast and cost-effective broadband, redundant service, as well as business continuity and disaster recovery solutions.

Impartial-IT, based in France, supports a wide range of businesses with projects by distributing, through its value-added partnerships, the biggest brands in the market both in hardware and software. As part of the new partnership, Impartial-IT will offer all Mushroom Network product lines, both wired and wireline, including Truffle, Truffle Lite and Portabella.

"Impartial-IT is committed to finding cutting-edge tools that offer capabilities superior to those already present in the market to help enterprises control spending," said Laurent Goffinet, Founder and Managing Partner at Impartial-IT. "We are excited about teaming up with Mushroom Networks to be able to offer businesses around the globe Broadband Bonding as an alternative technology for high bandwidth at an affordable price. Broadband Bonding can deliver a high degree of reliability because enterprises can bond multiple access links from different service providers ... if one link fails, the sessions stay alive since the others links still run.  This equates to high 9's reliability. And because Mushroom Networks is Ethernet-based, it can be used with any existing service [like MPLS] to boost performance, or provide redundancy in case the primary link fails."

Mushroom Networks' Truffle provides a way for organizations with limited bandwidth options to bond together up to 12 Internet connections into a single virtual broadband pipe. It accepts any combination of connection technologies, including T1, fiber, DSL, or cable, and intelligently combines them for optimal speed and improved reliability due to the redundancies of multiple connections. Its PortaBella product aggregates the bandwidth capacity of as many as eight USB based cellular wireless Internet access cards into a single connection. For example, it can combine one Orange, one SFR  and one Bouygues Telecom card for reliable Internet and is best suited for remote offices, construction sites, inside vehicles and areas where geographical terrain makes Internet service challenging.

According to Goffinet: "As agent and partner of Mushroom Networks, Impartial-IT's goal is to help companies save overall costs, increase reliability and bandwidth of internet access as well as develop international business of Mushroom Networks."

"With its commitment to excellence in the IT consulting services, project management and hardware and software distribution sector, Impartial-IT allows Mushroom Networks the perfect opportunity to further expand our Broadband Bonding solutions as we continue with our role as the global provider of WAN virtualization technologies for high performance enterprise data and video applications," said Cahit Akin, co-founder and CEO of Mushroom Networks.

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
