When Rackspace launches a new cloud service globally, take note. As the open cloud company, Rackspace knows what customers need. Now Rackspace once again advances the state of cloud computing with networking services on demand, powered by the Brocade Vyatta vRouter.
Getting your business onto an open and flexible cloud platform has tremendous advantages. However, doing so without compromising the controls and security typically found in enterprise-class networking has traditionally been a challenge. Critical network services such as firewall, NAT, VPN and routing cannot be overlooked.
Now Rackspace has eliminated that challenge by enabling customers to take control of how their applications are segmented and secured in the cloud with the Brocade Vyatta vRouter, a software-based networking appliance that lets you leverage “open” to its fullest potential and provision on demand. Powered by one of the industry’s most widely-deployed virtual router, Rackspace now offers on-demand networking and enhanced security for hybrid cloud environments.
With the Brocade Vyatta vRouter, companies can significantly reduce the risk of exposing cloud infrastructures to the outside world, whether to competitors, other customers or even different units within the company. That’s why it is absolutely critical that customers be able to connect and protect their infrastructure in a way that simultaneously gives them the controls they need, with the flexibility that the cloud affords.
More than 1,500 customers worldwide have deployed the Brocade Vyatta vRouter for on- and off-premise networking and security needs. Founded in 2006 and acquired by Brocade in 2012, Vyatta is the pioneer and market leader in enterprise-class virtualized networking. Like Rackspace, Brocade believes customers should have choice and not be artificially trapped by limited system designs.
Take to the open cloud on your terms. Now with on-demand networking services, Rackspace is making sure you can do it without compromising ease, economics – or control.
The Brocade Vyatta vRouter is now available to Rackspace Cloud customers through a Limited Availability Program. To apply for access, please go to: http://www.rackspace.com/cloud/servers/vrouter/apply/.
