Rivar, OmniCluster Partner to Launch Hosting Technology
November 13, 2001 -- (WEB HOST INDUSTRY REVIEW) -- A new technology
relationship between Rivar Technologies (rivar.com), developer
of Code: Neo software and OmniCluster Technologies (omnicluster.com),
developer of the SlotServer, full-function server on a PCI card,
is enabling Web hosters to expand their existing network capacity
Rivar will showcase the integrated products at Comdex Fall 2001,
Nov. 13-16 in Las Vegas, Booth No. L4922. "The agreement
to combine the products through mutual reseller partners and within
a single host system creates a 'dynamic duo' that addresses Web
hosters' most crucial challenges," said Rivar Technologies'
president Gene Savar.
OmniCluster Technologies' CEO Chris Fleck added, "To remain
competitive, webhosters must keep costs in check as their customer
base grows. At the same time, they need to satisfy consumers'
demand for ever faster Web sites and Internet applications. The
relationship between Rivar and OmniCluster provides both aspects."
Integrating Code: Neo application server software, which is designed
to provide ten-fold speed gains in Web server processing, with
SlotServer 1000 fully exploits technology infrastructure investments.
Companies can augment, rather than add, conventional rack-mount
servers to double, triple or quadruple a data center's server
capacity and simultaneously boost processing speed.
Code: Neo's speed is derived from its ability to bring C++, the
language of operating systems, to the Web. Code: Neo allows Web
pages to be embedded with C++ and compiled into high-speed binary
objects that are executed directly by servers in response to user
requests. Benchmarks indicate that the use of compiled binary
objects can increase execution speed at least ten-fold over programs
written in PERL, JAVA or ASP.
This speed gain reduces the chance of overload and site crashes,
increasing reliability and customer satisfaction. The result is
that users are able to access information faster and more users
per Web server can be accommodated. With Code: Neo, Web hosters
also can build new revenue streams, offering customers a range
of website development tools, including diagnostics, security
and support without having to dedicate staff resources.
OmniCluster Technologies' SlotServer 1000 is a half-length PCI
card that contains a fully compatible x86 based server system
with a patent pending, integrated high-speed network. Multiple
SlotServers may be clustered inside standard servers to provide
additional server functions or expand an existing server's capacity.
