Netli Scales Up

Palo Alto, Calif., startup Netli Inc. today announced two new services offered as part of its specialist network protocol (see Netli Offers New Services). It also announced four new customers.

The two services include NetliView and NetliContinuity. The former is a Web portal that provides information on the status of applications, while the latter allows firms to shift Web application traffic across sites.

At the same time as the company announced its new services, it also revealed that some big hitters are already using the companys flagship NetLightning service: Dell Computer Corp. (Nasdaq: DELL), Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK), Kimberly-Clark, and Thomson Financial. Although precise details on the nature of the deals have yet to be released, boosting application performance via the data center was obviously key.

“Typically, in each of these areas, we’re dealing with one centralized data center,” says Willie Tejada, vice president of marketing at Netli.

Netli claims to deliver LAN-like response time over a global network. So, how does it do all this?
