Web Real-Time Communications, or WebRTC, is an emerging technology that is redefining how we communicate with one another. It enables anyone to embed real-time audio and video calls inside a web browser or application. In other words, you can connect with anyone on the internet using just a web link.
Temasys specializes in WebRTC. We are one of only eight companies creating the very DNA of this technology. To that end, we have created a free plugin which developers can embed into Internet Explorer, the world’s most used browser, and Apple’s popular Safari browser. Prior to Temasys’ plugin, both browsers did not have WebRTC capabilities – we made it possible for all, and for free. To meet enterprise demand, we have created a similar licensed product, allowing businesses to leverage the technology while being able to customize the user interface.

The benefits of WebRTC in emerging markets is the fact that these are traditionally poorly served in terms of telecommunications infrastructure and bandwidth rates offered by internet service providers. WebRTC addresses those pain points by providing high quality audio, video chat and data. Temasys’ solutions have shown bandwidth usage of only a quarter of that used by videoconferencing tools like Skype, and at a better quality.

WebRTC will be a market worth US$4.8 billion by 2018, largely driven by emerging markets like Asia Pacific, predicts Smiths Point Analytics. Disruptive Analysis predicts that over 2 billion people will be using WebRTC by 2019. Temasys’ WebRTC solutions are carrier-grade and enterprise-ready, and we are well positioned to help businesses and developers leverage WebRTC.

Sustainable IT Trailblazers Award

Winner:

Eco4Cloud

Rende CS, Italy

Eco4Cloud automatically and dynamically consolidates the max number of virtual machines (VM) on the min number of physical servers in a data center, automating the switch off/hibernation of those freed-up, and making them dynamically available as additional capacity for incremental workloads (e.g. peaks). It works on top of a/any virtualization platform (e.g. vSphere, Hyper-V), and uses the standard APIs to connect, query the status of physical as well as virtual equipment, and trigger actions in order to make the DC more efficient. It acts as a plugin to the virtualization platform, and several security mechanisms are in place to make it easy to activate/deactivate/customize it without affecting SLAs nor experiencing any downtime. In VMware environments, Eco4Cloud automatically releases memory from those VMs meeting particular conditions, resulting in up to 15% of released unused RAM which is made available back to vSphere for additional workloads. Based on the analysis of workload traces/patterns measured in the DC, Eco4Cloud also addresses and solves the capacity-planning problem by modeling it with historical workloads and generating demand patterns considering workload peaks for resource allocation and resulting in an accurate prediction of future demands. Additionally, Eco4Cloud automates continuous monitoring of well-known virtualization options and sets immediate warning/alerts when wrong configurations are detected. Specifically and among several other aspects of virtualized environment, it oversees the following critical parameters and ranks them by severity:

• Virtualization platform SLA compliance
• Host, virtual machine and storage health status
• Host remote switch-on ability
• VM hot migration ability
• VM optimal access to storage
• Network accessibility for VMs
• Resources availability
• VM virtual devices and controllers
• A convenient tool/service to automate specific risk analysis, which is preparatory to other steps of service continuity management, as well as for root-cause analysis and return-to-normal operations during incident/problem management
