Modern day G2C services expect very high concurrency in production.In order to ensure that the quality of service matches the expectations of end user, it is vital to perform a thorough load testing of application prior to its release. Load testing of such application requires considerable investment in setting up a cluster of load generator servers, which may not be possible for all the projects.
Integrated Core COVID-19 Management Framework - Ensuring availability of data across systems for better management of COVID-19 crisis
Corona virus pandemic has spread across the world at a fast pace disrupting life in unprecedented ways. Government of India has taken multiple measures like nation-wide lockdown, identification of hotspots/ containment zones, isolating patients and suspects, contact tracing, surveillance besides planning and managing health infrastructure like hospitals, beds, ventilators, quarantine facilities, testing labs etc. For effective planning, decision-making and implementation of these measures, timely access to accurate information is the key.

A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running across a VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network. In other words, it allows users to work from home like they were in office. The new WebVPN offering is easy to use even for non-tech savvy users and augments the security of the system by means of two factors of authentication.
