Earth Networks operates the world’s largest weather observation and lightning detection networks. The company is building what will become the largest greenhouse gas monitoring network. Observations from Earth Networks inform and alert consumers, enterprises and governments around the world, providing them with advanced environmental intelligence for decision-making and safety.
The company’s popular WeatherBug website, desktop application and mobile apps provide millions of consumers with real-time, local weather information and dangerous severe weather alerts. Enterprise solutions from Earth Networks enable organizations, including energy and utilities, agriculture, schools, sports and recreation, emergency operations and government entities, to safeguard lives, prepare for weather and climate events and improve business operations.
In 2011, Earth Networks contacted Datatility for assistance with the management of their networks and associated devices including routers, switches, VPNs, firewalls, as well as systems support. This support was a high priority, as Earth Networks was in the process of re-networking its headquarters, consolidating its data centers and migrating more than 650 servers to the Cloud. Earth Networks is a high-scale operation, providing content to millions of unique Web, desktop, mobile and tablet users per month.
Datatility supplied Earth Networks with a comprehensive network management and monitoring solution. It also provided support for multiple migrations required as a result of Earth Networks virtualization and data center consolidation project.
“We see Datatility as a strategic partner in our work to improve the scalability, security, and reliability of all of our systems”, said Lex Crosett, VP of Product Development and CIO at Earth Networks. “We can rely on the Datatility team’s networking talent and skills around the clock, allowing us to focus on our core information service business.”
