Online PR News – 20-May-2011 – – Cistera Networks® (CNWT.PK), a leading provider of enterprise application platforms and engines for unified communications, announces the implementation of largest fault tolerant emergency notification infrastructure to date for North America, covering critical energy infrastructure in 11 states.

Securing energy infrastructure is one of the most sensitive tasks facing the US energy business today. Cistera has recently completed the implementation of its highest grade of capability, Cistera Networks High Availability Services, for a large-scale secure utility network throughout 11 states. The Cistera Convergence Servers and the notification application servers were deployed at a single location providing server-to-server site-to-site failover services. Due to Cistera’s unique HA capabilities, administrators can have failover configured to failover from a main site to remote site (s) for both High Availability and Disaster Recovery services.

“When dealing with critical sensitive requirements for notification and compliance capability on Cisco Unified Communications, there is really only one sensible option and that is Cistera” says Cistera CEO Greg Royal. “We deliver capability for the Federal Government, NASA and others whose needs go beyond simple software CDs. It is no coincidence that Cistera is used by Department of Defense, First Responders, Energy, and Healthcare Systems among many others that require highly available solutions. We simply are the most scalable, secure and reliable solution out there.”

The award-wining Cistera ConvergenceServer is one of the industry’s most comprehensive delivery platform for providing a robust and scalable solution that adds features and functionality to a communications environment. Each Cistera ConvergenceServer comes equipped with the full range of Cistera application engines, making installation and expansion a simple, straightforward process. The platform’s broad portfolio of virtualized application services enables users to improve satisfaction, increase productivity and collaboration as well as provide a safer environment. Based on open standards and a proven server technology foundation, the Cistera ConvergenceServer’s single unified administration lowers the total cost of ownership of a full-featured communications solution.
