"For us it's crucial to work with providers that are just a phone call away, at a moment's notice. That's why we decided to work with Rackspace."

Reference Architectures

Cloud Networks Database Architecture

Configuration Notes:

  • Cloud Networks connects your website or app to your database, both of which run on Cloud Servers
  • The Cloud Servers hosting your databases use shared IPs and a redundant, active/passive configuration
  • If one database server goes down, the other takes over the shared IP using gratuitous ARP (on the data plane) with no need for an API call
  • Cloud Load Balancers communicate with Cloud Servers hosting your web site or app over the Rackspace internal network (ServiceNet)
Cloud Networks VPN Architecture

Configuration Notes:

  • Help establish a secure, site-to-site virtual private network (VPN) connection between your data center and your Rackspace-hosted infrastructure
  • Extend your infrastructure to the cloud to take advantage of scalable compute
  • Connect to Cloud Networks from your data center via the Brocade Vyatta® vRouter using a L2TP/IPsec VPN
  • Optional internal network (ServiceNet) connection for accessing services like Cloud Backup
