DataArt to Contribute to Telestax’s Next Generation Communications Development Platform
NEW YORK – April 20, 2016 - DataArt, the technology consulting firm that develops end-to-end solutions, announced today its partnership with Telestax, a leading open source communications company, which enables telecoms and enterprises to create elastic deployment environments for communication applications.
DataArt will contribute to the development of Restcomm, Telestax’s next generation open source cloud communications development platform, which allows telecoms and enterprises to shift from legacy platforms to modern IP-based solutions and build powerful cross-platform content delivery, voice, messaging, video, and IoT applications.
The partnership leverages DataArt’s expertise in container technologies and intelligent auto scaling solutions. DataArt is developing the core Docker container for both Restcomm and the Telescale loadbalancer, providing a new way for telecoms and enterprises to respond and scale up or down within seconds of the shift in workload, while significantly reducing infrastructure costs.
Restcomm accelerates Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) initiatives for telecoms around the world with native support for next generation cloud technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, Mesos and others. The same cloud technologies are rapidly adopted by enterprises looking to blend web and mobile app infrastructure with contextual real time communications in order to provide higher value to their end users.

It is an opportunity for us to contribute to their development as they lead the way in changing how telecommunications applications are created.”
