a range of new intranet server applications.

are designed to distribute IP traffic between multiple servers or sites,
ensuring fault tolerance and redundancy. The system dynamically balances
loads to relieve congestion and ensure fault tolerance between servers and
sites.


Bright Tiger’s ClusterCATS software manages Web resources to ensure
availability and peak performance. The product continuously monitors and

automatically redirect and optimize traffic, ensuring uninterrupted service.

products make for a perfect fit.


“Together, they offer our present user base a leap in performance without
having to replace existing equipment,” he said.

and/or global solution that will guarantee increased reliability,
