ElasticHosts and VNS3

VNS3 delivers cloud security and networking for virtual and cloud environments.VNS3 is a software-only virtual appliance that acts as 7 devices in 1: router, switch, SSL/IPSec VPN concentrator, firewall, protocol re-distributor, scriptable API and extensible NFV container optimized for the ElasticHosts cloud. VNS3:net cloud networks are configured and managed through theVNS3 Controller web-based UI or resetful API.

ElasticHosts’ data centers are conveniently located London, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, San Jose, Toronto, Hong Kong, and Sydney. The size of the ElasticHosts cloud makes it easy for you to choose a location or set of locations that work best for your existing IT footprint and/or that of your customers or partners. VNS3 provides connectivity, security and integration to ElasticHosts.

Connectivity
Do your applications need to access servers or data that will continue to reside in your datacenter or office? Do your customers or employees need controlled access to your cloud deployment? Connect your ElasticHosts cloud deployed and on-premises applications using standard and secure network protocols like IPsec and SSL VPN.

Security
VNS3 provides encryption of all data-in-motion in the cloud and between the cloud and your network edge. Create a custom VNS3 network which you overlay on top of the physical/native network so you have control over your application and user connectivity. Unique and customer controlled X.509 credentials with key selectable key lengths ensure your cloud communications are for your application’s eyes only.

Integration
VNS3 integrates with ElasticHosts’ VLAN isolation features as well as integrating with their latest Elastic Containers offering. ElasticHosts VLAN is very different from most cloud implementation but it is incredibly flexible. Very simply each server launched in ElasticHosts has a public IP on eth0 and a private VLAN IP on eth1. The VLAN is set on the local configuration of the instances and can be modified on-demand.VNS3 for ElasticHosts is specially designed to integrate with this VLAN feature via a Web UI control. As a resultVNS3 can be used as an Internet Gateway, sitting at a private VLAN edge, providing NAT-ing and port forwarding for the other devices in the private VLAN. Additionally ElasticHosts Elastic Containers can be joined to the VNS3 overlay network and Cohesive Networks can provide LXC container files and pointers to help you get started.
