Building Mission Critical Systems
Cybernetica has designed many mission critical systems. Sometimes, human life is on the line, for example, with distress calls handled by our maritime radio communication system. The system is fully redundant, without a single point of failure. Different parts of the system are located at several sites, most of them unmanned. Built-in diagnostics and maintenance functions enable efficient preventive maintenance.
We have developed the X-Road (exported as UXP), which serves as a backbone for digital government in Estonia and elsewhere. The X-Road system has been in production for more than 17 years with no downtime and currently handles more than 600 million transactions annually. The distributed architecture of the X-Road allows it to continue growing to several order of magnitudes of the current load.
