And if you require a hybrid solution, you can extend the investment you’ve already made in VMware technology with direct access to a secure enterprise cloud environment. Ideal for burst, on-demand, or extra capacity virtual resources, iland can establish a private, high-speed virtual network interface from your on-premise virtual resources directly to your iland public cloud.
iland has deployed the Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V (CSR), a fully virtualized software router, in our secure global data centers to deliver enterprise class networking on our customers’ deployed cloud services.
The Cisco CSR uses the familiar enterprise class Cisco IOS-XE operating system for consistent network operation and delivers a rich set of networking features; aiding cloud migration and easing adoption of a hybrid cloud model.
iland offers customers the option to use the Cisco Adaptive Security Virtual Appliance (ASAv) for secure cloud networking. The Cisco ASAv is a firewall and VPN virtual appliance which runs within your cloud footprint in the iland cloud as a VM, and supports site-to-site VPN, remote access VPN and clientless VPN functionality.
Customers that have standardized on Cisco networking infrastructure on-premise can extend that standard into the cloud with ASAv, enabling unified management and consistent operations.
iland provides iland Cloud℠ customers with redundant, high speed/low latency connectivity to blended Tier 1 providers. We also offer industry leading monitoring and routing tools to better understand and optimize connectivity to our cloud, and within our cloud. Through the iland Secure Cloud Console℠ customers are able to drill right down to the VM level and determine how bandwidth is being utilized.
iland Cloud customers have access to integrated virtual network appliances capable of industry standard network solutions including network address translation (NAT), firewalling, IPSec VPN, SSL VPN, static routing, DHCP, and load balancing. Fully isolated LAN segments can be customized to fit your exact needs including compliance compatible configurations. Within the iland console, users can manage rules related to firewall traffic and NAT and a history of all changes is maintained; allowing users to revert back to a previous checkpoint whenever required.
Need more options? Bring your own virtual or physical firewall appliance to fit your exact networking requirements. iland can provide isolated internal networking that can be customized to your requirements.
Disaster recovery management is simplified with the integration of DNS management into the cloud console – DNS management can be performed from the same location in which you manage cloud resources and disaster recovery. Easily manage your public IP blocks, DNS zones, records, and make updates to all your DNS records in the event of a failover through an easy-to-use search and edit tool within the console.
iland Cloud customers have access to a built-in virtual load balancing appliance that allows for the distribution of workloads across multiple virtual guests. This maximizes throughput, minimizes response time, and reduces the impact of web server maintenance and upgrades.
However, if you are seeking different functionality, we welcome your choice of load balancer in our cloud, including Citrix Netscaler (managed by either you or iland), other virtual appliances, or even physically colocated devices.
