The different components of connectivity and their functions:
Networking- provision and manages VPNs and establishes machine-to-machine connections
Service Bus- establishes secure messaging, relays capabilities, and allows developers to build hybrid applications; it also enables loosely coupled solutions and robust mobile device capabilities.
Cloud Connectivity- load balances user traffic across hosted services and makes scaling of services possible for superior flexibility and cost efficiency. As an added convenience, it allows IT infrastructure to set up and take down virtual machines in the ItemSight Cloud with only a few clicks.
The vast majority of applications exist on-premises or in hybrid based infrastructures. As a result, any viable cloud offering must compliment and not compete with these existing investments. Synching On-Premises and Cloud Infrastructure solutions is therefore an important aspect of connectivity, and hence Intelligent Systems.
ItemSight – On Premises Cross-connectivity consists of the following:
Secure Site-to-Site Network Connectivity via Virtual Networks, which enables the ability to create virtual networks, allowing organizations to keep traffic private and guarantee reserved hosting.
Secure Machine-to-Machine Connectivity via ItemSight Connect
Application-Layer Connectivity and Messaging via Service Bus
Data Synchronization via SQL ItemSight Data Sync
Application Monitoring and Management with ItemSight Management Center
In the day-to-day world of Intelligent Systems, connectivity between devices and applications residing with company infrastructure –whether on Premises or in the Cloud – is vital, so is connectivity between branch offices and across different geographies. Fortunately, within the ItemSight Platform all connectivity combinations are possible – whether On-Premises or in the Cloud -and will work seamlessly and allow information to flow freely within an Intelligent System.
