Sonork has been deployed in thousands of sites and is proven as a reliable and effective localization and data transfer server. Designed for robustness and implemented using the latest state-of-the-art technologies, the Sonork server is the fastest and most reliable product available in the marketplace.
The Sonork Server uses 'state-of-the-art' algorithms and techniques to optimize system throughput. A proprietary scheme of thread management prioritizes work within the server to maintain fast response times for message traffic while relegating long running activities, not requiring immediate response, to lower priority threads. Extensive use of intelligent caching optimizes data base access and data availability. Selectable use of UDP and TCP/IP message/data transfer protocols is used to improve bandwidth in congested systems and minimize connection overhead. The Sonork Server uses a highly optimized binary protocol for data exchange. This guarantees the lowest network bandwidth with least processing overhead.
Sonork leverages off the proven and well-known web technologies as the mechanism to achieve tight integration. Through central server controls, the administrator can define web resources that become easily called entities from the client application. This provides a common communications-centric interface where existing web applications can be combined within the client. This can be considered another aspect in the extensibility to the client-messaging platform.
The Sonork server has an extremely low memory footprint, at just under 2 megs. It runs on Windows 98, 2000 and XP; which must have TCP/IP as one of its network protocols (if you use e-mail and/or web services on your network, chances are that you've got TCP/IP installed).
A Linux and FreeBSD versions will be available by third quarter, 2003.
