Use Case Challenge
In today’s enterprises, applications and data may be hosted in private clouds within enterprise data centers, virtual private clouds in managed data centers or public clouds. This, coupled with the need for remote, branch and HQ users to securely access applications and data, creates a unique challenge for enterprise infrastructure and network engineers.
Securing the Hybrid Cloud Use Case Solution
Brocade’s Vyatta vRouter provides extensive VPN capabilities with strong compatibility that can be used to bridge on-premises assets (physical and virtual) with resources in the public cloud or virtual private clouds.
With the vRouter, enterprises can provide high-speed, high-security connectivity between branches, enterprise HQ, private datacenters to co-location facilities and virtual public clouds hosted within public IaaS providers like Amazon, Azure, Rackspace etc.
The vRouter’s flexibility in deployment, supporting a wide range of hypervisor and cloud platforms, including VM and bare-metal options means that the Brocade solution will run on just about any public or private clouds. This flexibility allows enterprise workloads to communicate across clouds.
