Cloud Networks Powered by OpenStack®

Secure networks in the cloud

Use fully isolated, single-tenant Cloud Networks to connect your web site or application to a database, or to set up a site-to-site VPN. It's easy to manage through our Cloud Control Panel and powerful APIs.

Cloud Networks are software-defined, powered by the OpenStack® networking service, and offer complete control over your network topology, IP addressing (IPv4 or IPv6), and architecture.

Reference Architectures

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)

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
