CloudWAN by Internet Solutions

CloudWAN by Internet Solutions is a virtual Wide Area Network (WAN) solution for next-generation enterprise networking.

Using software-defined networking (SDN) technology and network function virtualisation, CloudWAN links public and private clouds into a virtual network that is smart, responsive, and elastic.

By delivering cloud-based, centralised network provision and management, CloudWAN overcomes the biggest drawbacks of legacy network technologies.

Enterprises usually invest in private network services based on MPLS, which has been an industry standard for decades but data traffic and network complexity between business sites is more and more substantial.

As multitudes of devices in numerous sites are added to an enterprise WAN, existing network technologies are increasingly restrictive, prohibitively expensive, and can no longer guarantee quick and reliable network connections.

Black Panther gets 6 Oscar chances

Black Panther has become the first superhero movie to be nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture by the Academy of Motion Picture and and Sciences. The film also received five other nominations on Tuesday. Released by Disney’s Marvel Films, it is recognised as the first superhero film to feature a predominantly black cast – and it has a strong South African connection..

The film, starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B Jordon, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, and Angela Basset – and a prominent cameo by South Africa’s John Kani – raked in $1,3 billion at the box office last year. Kani was also consultant to the movie, and was instrumental in isiXhosa being chosen as the language used by the people of the fictional African country of Wakanda.
