Defender Hosting selects Internap

Internet performance network services company, Internap Network Services Corporation, was chosen to power Defender Hosting, with its flow control platform technology, designed to enhance network performance and route optimisation.

Through the FCP, it is expected that Internap’s intelligent route-control technology will also enable decreased operational expenditures. In pursuit of a way to better manage bandwidth and resolve operational expenditures used to manually troubleshoot their network, Defender Hosting selected Internap based on their high-quality technology and track record of successful, automated network optimization. As a result, Defender Hosting has experienced a seamless improvement in traffic management, reduced latency and packet loss and decreased Internet routing issues.

Thomas Kiblin, CEO of Defender Hosting remarked, ”Internap is known for its quick turnaround and high-quality, cutting-edge technology for network maintenance and management. Thanks to Internap, we can focus on serving our customers and delivering them a quality experience.”

Internap’s FCPs intelligently route traffic across Defender Hosting’s network while managing connectivity. In addition, the technology is configured to route based on cost, performance and application. The FCP improves transfer speeds and features robust reporting tools for tracking comprehensive network performance data over multiple service providers.

Tim Sullivan, Chief Technology Officer for Internap added, ”Our mission is to enable our customers to focus on their core businesses and we are pleased Defender Hosting can rely on our sophisticated technology. Through our robust suite of services, customers like Defender Hosting can continue to enjoy cost savings and improved performance.”

The Internap FCP product line includes solutions to manage traffic from 10 megabits per second up to 10 gigabits per second and beyond. Features include intelligent load balancing, which increases the overall efficiency of managing bandwidth costs while providing visibility into network performance. The FCP is scalable to support the growing bandwidth requirements of Web-centric businesses. The FCP’s measurement tool, FlowView, also allows customers to proactively address impacts from software and application changes. Staff can pinpoint problems quickly and use end-to-end visibility to make informed decisions. Reporting to executive management is simplified, allowing customers to monitor application performance using real-time statistics on metrics such as packet loss, latency and jitter.
