Wornex International provides high-speed interconnections using optical fibre in Europe and in the United States. All Internet services are rendered from networks directly connected to the main backbones and on the national and international Neutral Access Points (NAPs). We are specialized in high traffic, content acceleration networks and load balancing hosting and co-location. Call or contact us for more details.

About HealthCare.gov and load balancing
Make sure HealthCare.gov doesn't happen to you! -- When HealthCare.gov (the US president Obama health insurance marketplace) was launched in Nov. 2013, they expected some 50,000 to 60,000 simultaneous users, but instead it has drawn as many as 250,000 at the same time.

When too many users access an on-line service or web site simultaneusly either the server itself or the network may become overloaded. The result is increased latency (slow or no response), and potential loss of data.

By carefully engineering the on-line application(s) with Wornex WorldDirector so that number of servers can be increased, the load and the number of users may be distributed among different servers and more transactions can be managed at the same time.

The drawbacks of standard CDN or traditional load balancers is that if one or more server fail, or if the network fails, on-line services will be unreachable.  However, by increasing the number of locations and servers at the same time and using an always-on technology like WorldDirector, we have no bottlenecks and we can survive multiple failures. In this way it is possible both to “load balance” and increase reliability of the whole system.

With Wornex WorldDirector, if one or more server, or one or more network segment fail, our globally distributed load balancing system will continue to provide service, until there is at least one server on-line. Configuration and de-configuration of servers in case of network or server problems is fully automatic, and requires no human intervention after initial set-up. A global load balancing mechanism like WorldDirector also provides content acceleration so to make the application appear much “faster” to the end user, not only due to the fact that a server is closer to the end user
Discussion management and decision making

DEMOS (Delphi Online Mediation System) is a complex application available on Wornex's WorldDirector platform that provides an environment that assists the management of discussions and decision making through the web, especially when involving a large population (e.g., a community using the web to debate about city issues) or small groups of experts. DEMOS is based on the integration of three well-proven methods of social research: the Delphi method, Survey techniques, and Mediation method. These are supported by a set of tools (user interface, forum management, survey organization, and clustering), integrated in a layered architecture and adapted to multiple languages: the current version is working on English, German and Italian. The approach and the system was successfully validated at two trial sites, the City of Hamburg (Germany) and the City of Bologna (Italy).

DEMOS is aimed at researching and developing a technology for the mass market or for small groups of experts. All the users involved in any internet mediated discussion process could be a DEMOS end user : citizens, consumers, employees, forum members. Hence, the potential customers of DEMOS are the companies and organisations that provide DEMOS services to the public.: Administrations, Consumer Opinion Platform, Market Research Companies.

The DEMOS system provides a state-of-the-art set of features for e-participation but is ready for the market and does not depend on any technology that is beyond the state-of-the-art of products readily available on the market.

DEMOS goes beyond the usual Internet chat or discussion forums to provide a powerful and integrated methodology and socio-computational system with the following configurable and customisable state-of-the-art features to support large-scale public participation in political discourses on the Web:

  • unstructured iterative discussion sessions and structured debates with oal-directed cycles, organised and controlled by a moderator or a group of moderators
  • differentiated user roles and access rights
  • modes for communication and feedback (direct/indirect, public/protected)
  • support for differentiated types of user-interaction
  • sorting and aggregating quantitative data and qualitative semantic content (free answers, comments and statements)
  • participative "bottom up" specification of issues, construction of questionnaires, and selection of experts
  • conflict resolution strategies allowing differentiated outcomes (convergence,consensus, divergence, "rational dissent")
  • self-organization and subgroup formation allowing different levels of aggregation and distribution
  • methods facilitating the maintenance of process coherence and coordination in the face of large numbers of participants with high fluctuation rates.

E-government and open forums

Wornex International offers complete ASP managed solutions enabling fruitful and constructive debate between citizens and politicians with the intention of facilitating e-government applications and encouraging online discussion and e-democracy.

Our applications may - in several cases - reduce significantly the cost of running any medium-large scale surveys on a rather large group of participants. In most cases the cost of conducting a traditional large scale and detailed survey would be significantly high, and results may not have been of the same quality. Our applications and innovative methodology, instead, is able to reach very high-quality results at a significantly lower cost.
