Virtual rack for your infrastructures
vRack allows you to isolate the servers inside a private local network (VLAN). The network is isolated on the hardware level, which guarantees security and high speed. A local network between dedicated servers is provided for free on the servers in France and Canada that belong to Infrastructure, Storage, and Big Data line-ups, as well as all servers in the Netherlands.
You can use up to 4000 private VLANs in France and Canada in order to isolate the server, filter out the users and protect your data. In Netherlands all private networks are already isolated and cannot be accessed from the outside.
vRack in France and Canada adapts to the needs of your business. Create your own infrastructure using products and services from the Infrastructure, Storage and Big Data line-ups.
Use host-bastions and similar ways to access the VLAN as an expansion of your infrastructure or as a part of the security system that protects your most crucial data.
In Netherlands, all racks and modules are unified. Logistics and maintenance procedures are scheduled and optimized. This allows to create a server with two dual-port network cards Intel x540 and 10 Gbit/s connection. Most servers are connected to the private network (20 Gbit/s) and the global network (20 Gbit/s) at the same time.
vRack can be established between the data centers of Canada and France. You can combine your servers in the different parts of the world without losing the transfer speed.
This free global private network combines all the dedicated servers you have, regardless of where they are located. And at the same times traffic remains unlimited, encrypted, protected and free.
Even the best equipment sometimes breaks. That’s why in the Netherlands we are using a new commutational scheme without a single point of failure. Network interfaces of these servers are connected with two separate commutators (leaf-switches) that are located in the different racks. Each commutator is connected to two intercomponent routers (spine-switches), which in turn are connected to the routers. If any unit on this list goes down, it will immediately be replaced with a backup one, which is why the chance of losing internet connection is almost zero.
Connecting your server
Devices Cisco ASR 9000 serve as a kind of bridge for vRack. They are located in the gateways in each data center and are connected to each other so that the data passes through them, rather than through a public network. The Nexus 6000 and Nexus 2000 act as network gateways for linking all your servers.
When you combine the servers into a single virtual network, you are using a dedicated Internet channel so that you won’t have any issues even with the extremely remote data centers.
Local (virtual) network has a large Internet channel and a minimum ping. All servers in France and Canada are connected to the network at speeds up to 10 Gbps. Up to 40 Gbps on all servers in the Netherlands.
All servers that are integrated into a single local (virtual) network are securely protected and do not have access to the network from the outside. To protect customer data, we have isolated all local (virtual) networks. Each network has its own switches and equipment. Information from the local (virtual) network can not get into the public network. In addition, local (virtual) networks of different clients are isolated on a logical level and separated from each other.
We are using only the hardware from the best manufacturers of the network devices i.e. Cisco, Tilera, ARBOR etc. We are working only with the best broadband providers: OVH, Comcast, Level (3), TATA, NTT Communication, Fiord etc. This allows us to create the best conditions for our customers’ projects to thrive.
