BASCOM Releases Redundant Standby Solution for Large School Districts

Hauppauge, New York—January 12, 2010 - BASCOM Global Internet Services, Inc., an industry-leader in innovative and interactive Internet teaching tools for K-12 schools, today announced the release of its SMARTrecover Framework for the Global Chalkboard—BASCOM's enterprise edition connectivity solution for K-12 schools. Developed in response to a school's critical need for web access and onsite service hosting, BASCOM's new SMARTrecover Framework for the Global Chalkboard now eliminates single points of hardware failure and maximizes uptime during sensitive system updates.
Deployed as a Global Chalkboard solution on two paired appliances—a primary and secondary appliance—residing in the same physical location, SMARTrecover Framework was developed in direct response to the vital Internet connectivity requirements of BASCOM's enterprise level customers. With this new release BASCOM delivers an even higher degree of assurance to large school districts. Designed to perform on demand, SMARTrecover Framework gives Technology Directors the peace-of-mind they desire; now they can be ultra confident that Internet access for their school is protected with a hot standby solution built from the ground up to support their configuration.

"In large school districts with a heavy user base, customers appreciate that a redundant appliance is ready to take over so they are never without Internet access," explains Bob DeRosa, BASCOM's Chief Technology Officer. "If there is a system failure, the security features of the redundant system immediately kick in to automatically protect the network and users."
