Case Study: How cPacket Networks uses Nouvola to ensure outstanding end-to-end performance with continuous testing 

Posted by Marketing Nouvola on Jan 17, 2018 1:17:31 PM

cPacket Networks is a company that develops high speed network performance monitoring systems. Thecompany develops its own ASICs and builds complete systems that leverage the unique capabilities of the HW.

The performance of cPacket’s system is of utmost importance to its users. The system itself has a distributed architecture and collects data from many endpoints in the network. Because of the nature of the architecture, performance bottlenecks can occur in multiple places. Nouvola makes it possible for cPacket to continuously test performance to ensure that the introduction of new hardware and software does not degrade the user experience, and to enable ongoing performance optimization of cPacket’s solution on multiple layers.

Nouvola Announces Availability of Webhooks to Augment API Capabilities

Posted by Product Update on Sep 14, 2017 4:39:16 PM

Instant notification anyone? We believe in an API-centric world. Hence we are very excited to introduce Nouvola WebHooks, a very powerful yet simple mechanism for web communications that expands our API capabilities.

What is a Webhook?

A webhook lets a developer provide a URL to which an API will send data.

Sometimes people call webhooks web callbacks, but essentially a webhook lets you skip a step. With most APIs there is a request followed by a response. No request is required for a webhook, it just sends the data when they are available.

Specifically for Nouvola DiveCloud, it also removes the need to poll for test conclusion and results. DiveCloud will simply send results when they are ready. Pretty cool eh?
