Enhanced security and networking
Cloud Servers, Cloud Networks, and the Brocade Vyatta® vRouter together enable a comprehensive all-in-one networking and security solution—giving you an easy-to-configure firewall, advanced networking, and VPN capabilities, plus increased security in the cloud.
Virtual private network (VPN) gateway
Build a VPN tunnel from your data center into the Rackspace public cloud. You can use a standards-compliant VPN device from almost any vendor at the other end of the VPN connection; or provide secure remote access for users in your company to connect to your resources in the cloud. The Brocade Vyatta vRouter supports both IPsec and OpenVPN.
Secure your cloud infrastructure with a network-based firewall that can perform stateful, IPv4/v6 packet inspections to intercept and inspect network activity and help protect your critical data. The Brocade Vyatta vRouter supports zone and time-based firewalling.
Network address translation (NAT)
You can provision application and database servers without public network interfaces, while still allowing your servers to access the Internet for OS updates and patches using Source NAT. Or you can hide your web servers behind the Vyatta with Destination NAT. This gives you added security in your cloud infrastructure with even less exposure to the Internet.
If you want to create application tiers on different isolated networks by leveraging the capabilities of Cloud Networks, the Brocade Vyatta vRouter enables you to easily build connectivity between these isolated networks giving you greater flexibility in building secure applications.
With the Managed Operations service level, leave the heavy lifting to us. We configure and manage your Brocade Vyatta vRouter to meet a range of security and networking requirements.
1 The number of virtual CPUs assigned to your Cloud Server. A vCPU corresponds to a physical CPU thread.
2 The amount of disk space allocated to your Cloud Server's operating system. System disks are RAID 10-protected and are captured when you image a server.
3 The amount of additional disk space allocated for your application data. Data disks are RAID 10-protected and are NOT captured when you image a server.
4 The amount of aggregate outbound bandwidth across all attached network interfaces (PublicNet, ServiceNet, Cloud Networks). The maximum amount of outbound public Internet bandwidth is limited to 40% of the aggregate limit. Inbound traffic is not limited. Host networking is redundant and bandwidth is delivered over two separate bonded interfaces, each able to carry 50% of the aggregate limit. We recommend using multiple Layer 4 connections to maximize throughput.
