Adara Tapped for Network Help at NHRC
Adara Networks, Inc. in Scotts Valley, CA received a $7.3 million firm-fixed-price contract for designing and testing an integrated service platform to solve problems of network latency, scalability and integration complexity for the Naval Health Research Center. Which leads one to ask the question on everybody’s mind: do they make house calls?
They probably do, but only for people with very complex in-house networks. Their NPX(TM) technology coordinates all sites, servers, and content in the network using a GOLD (Generic Object Locator by Distance) approach. The system builds tables that contain the best location for objects on the network, then maintains and updates the tables. This provide a single platform for additional network services and objects, and offers global load balancing, fail-over capability, and dynamic content management/ object re-location. Low-overhead encryption is also part of NPX’s services. See technology page for relevant Flash movies.
This contract for the Naval Health Research Center also covers evaluation and project support. Work will be performed in San Jose, CA (85%); Charleston, SC (10%); San Diego, CA (2%); Dahlgren, VA (1%); Patuxent River (1%); and Quantico, VA (1%), and is expected to be complete by May 2008. This contract was awarded competitively through Navy Electronic Commerce Online, with 1 offer received by the Fleet and Industrial Supply Center in San Diego, CA (N00244-07-C-0027).
