Content Delivery Network and Site Acceleration Services provider Cotendo has launched its new monitoring system, a real-time, 24/7 service that maximizes Website uptime and resolves failures in seconds. Cotendo Site Assure, combined with Cotendo’s Advanced Domain Name Service, is an integrated smart monitoring and automated failover service that will give Web content and application providers total business continuity by redirecting traffic or changing the load balancing between servers.
“Site Assure is integrated with our Advanced DNS to automatically and seamlessly redirect traffic to another destination in the event of a server failure,” said David Drai, Cotendo’s Chief Technology Officer. “Site Assure’s rapid responsiveness as well as its accuracy—there are no false positives—are why a wide range of content providers, including online retailers, advertising networks, transactional enterprises, professional news and data content Websites, will leverage Site Assure to provide continuous uptime of their services.”
Beyond providing the first-ever real-time failover service, Drai noted that Site Assure also allows content providers to fine-tune their delivery strategies using customized rules that define routing policies for load balancing and site optimization. Complementing this capability is Site Assure’s real-time alerting and reporting on the performance of the customer’s monitored resources.
“For content providers, who value maintaining their reputation for a quality user experience, that’s extremely important,” he said. “For those whose business depends on quickly completing transactions, it’s absolutely essential.”
