iovation Enhances Active-Active Architecture with Fifth Data Center
Core iovation Device Intelligence Data Now Replicated at Multiple Locations
PORTLAND, Ore. – October 29, 2012 – iovation, the Device Reputation Authority™ protecting online businesses from fraud and abuse, today announced that it is opening its fifth data center with the launch of a third core data replication facility. iovation is taking the step to provide extreme levels of reliability for its customers; powering their battles against online criminals through one of the most resilient architectures in fraud management. The most recent data center is located in Portland, Oregon, joining four others in Amsterdam, Miami, Portland and Seattle.
“Since cyber fraud never sleeps, it is essential to have a fraud fighting solution that keeps the same hours,” said Scott Waddell, Vice President of Technology at iovation. “This new data center strengthens our active-active model to ensure that our shared service is there to defend our customers when they need it most.”
By processing data in real time through an active-active delivery model (rather than active-standby), not only is single-point failure avoided, but even the delay from failover to a secondary facility is minimized. Data is replicated between data centers such that each facility can answer any customer queries with up-to-date information about devices associated with past fraud or abuse across iovation's shared device intelligence network. Utilizing this shared information, iovation is able to stop known offenders and predict whether or not new devices will be used to commit fraud through its ReputationManager 360 service.
