Abiquo makes creating hybrid cloud solutions across multiple sites simple

Posted By  Marcus Austin

Abiquo are making it easier to create fast secure connections between private cloud, hosted virtual data centres, and public cloud infrastructures with the addition of CohesiveFT’s VNS3 Software Defined Networking in to their infrastructure as a service product.

Cloud management platform vendor, Abiquo, is bundling CohesiveFT’s VNS3 Software Defined Networking (SDN) product to its cloud solution portfolio. With the addition of VNS3 Abiquo users will be able to create a simple and easy way to communicate between their private, hosted virtual data centers, and public cloud infrastructures.

The integration of VNS3 with Abiquo’s platform also allows users to control SDN capabilities, and provide flexibility and additional security within the rigor and management of the service provider’s standard offers.

Abiquo users deploying VNS3 will be able to:

  • Easily create true distributed applications via SDNs that span their Abiquo managed private, hosted or public clouds
  • Create SDN firewalls using the VNS3 Manager to selectively permit outbound traffic to the Internet while guarding inbound traffic from external parties;
  • Secure data in motion with end-to-end encryption across the SDN;
  • Use more enterprise protocols and monitoring systems, such as UDP multicast and SNMP, across multiple cloud and dedicated platforms.

Ian Finlay, VP of Products at Abiquo, said, “Our global customers can now use VNS3 combined with our IaaS offering to solve common use cases such as securely connecting data centres to cloud application deployments, encrypting data-in-motion within and between virtual data centres, complying with security standards such as HIPPA and PCI, and extending their existing networks into their cloud offering.”

VNS3 is now available for Abiquo customers to try on a limited license or “bring your own license” basis and VNS3 images are ready for use in Abiquo’s image repository allowing them to be quickly provisioned into Abiquo virtual data centres running multiple hypervisors.
