Australian application service provider (ASP) Alta Internet Business Systems has extended its service capabilities by introducing redundancy architecture with a global redirection service.
Alta's current infrastructure is its third-generation distributed architecture situated across the company's two operations centres in both Sydney and Melbourne.
"Alta now provides the ability to implement geographical server redundancy through its Global Redirection service," George Caravias, Alta's CEO said. "This fulfils user requirements for even greater levels of resiliency.
"Generation 3 is the next step in our continual evolution of capabilities. It is based on two years of effort and experience in application serving for Alta, and allows us to take a major step forward in our efficiency and capability."
Caravias claimed a recent IDC survey showed Alta's reliability of service to be rated by customers as the best in the country.
"We can now deliver on our promise of a distributed system that offers redundant failover, global-directed architecture as an option for users requiring an extra level of secure service," he said.
Alta is strongly committed to the Cisco Powered Network (CPN) program and its Generation 3 architecture is based totally around Cisco networking equipment.
