Simple and securely connect to multiple cloud environments – all from one place
Businesses today are making use of multiple applications (as many as 7151) to increase their productivity, each with different requirements and are hosted on multiple Clouds today. 77%2 of enterprises are adopting multiple Clouds to run these applications and each of these Clouds requires a separate connection. This results in the IT teams having to purchase, configure and maintain multiple connections. Traditionally, these connections are also based on fixed and rigid contracts that locks in businesses. Instead, Cloud Gateway makes it easy for you to manage and setup all of your Cloud connections according to your needs.
Cloud Gateway is a one-to-many portal that connects your corporate network to multiple Cloud services, making it easy for you to purchase, setup and manage multiple connections. From your private corporate network, you can choose to connect to “Bring Your Own Cloud” resources or subscribe directly from our Cloud Services Store. Cloud Gateway is flexible as it allows you to dynamically allocate bandwidth between your multiple Clouds depending on your needs. You can also provision network appliances like routers and firewalls virtually as we transition to a software defined network (SDN), cutting down long provisioning lead time.
Cloud Gateway makes it convenient for you to adopt multiple Clouds. Once connected, Cloud Gateway is the single point you need to purchase, manage and configure the connections to your Clouds that can be provisioned almost instantly. In the event of any network incidents, you will only need a single point of contact to work with.
Your network is nothing without control. You may need to configure your applications from time to time and redeploy them in different environments due to your business needs. As you move your workloads across your Clouds, Cloud Gateway allows you to move your static addresses together. At the same time, you can adjust the bandwidth allocation between your Clouds accordingly so that your user experience isn’t affected.
There are multiple Cloud service providers in the market today and instead of limiting to our services, Cloud Gateway connects you to our range of Cloud Services as well as your own Cloud resources. Choose which Clouds are accessible from each connection and configure them to meet your business needs
Cloud Gateway connects you to multiple Public Cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services and IBM Softlayer as well as our global data centres that you can host your Private Cloud in. The list of future connections include popular Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and other Public Clouds. Instead of having to manage multiple separate connections, Cloud Gateway aggregates them into a single connection. This makes your Cloud connection management simple.
Traditional bandwidth contracts are fixed and rigid. These contracts have to be amended if additional bandwidth is required even for short periods of time. Cloud Gateway users can subscribe to one of the bandwidth options as a start and allocate their bandwidth between different connections as and when required.
Network functions such as routers can now be virtualised and be provisioned almost instantaneously. As these appliances are provisioned virtually, you don’t need to be locked to long term contracts and device ownership.
