Abiquo offer software defined networking with CohesiveFT‘s VNS3
With CohesiveFT their VNS3 product is available to all Abiquo customers through the default Abiquo repository. VNS3 is a hybrid overlay networking appliance built for Abiquo integrated cloud deployments
VNS3 acts as 6 devices in one: router, switch, firewall, VPN concentrator, protocol redistributor and scriptable SDN. It’s different from other SDN and network function virtualization (NFV) solutions because of the customer-controlled overlay network built on top of the underlying cloud network.
The inclusion of VNS3 means that you can easily create secure overlay networks to allow our customers to:
1. Use VNS3 to create overlay networks between your Abiquo private cloud and public clouds such as Amazon AWS
2. Use VNS3 to create overlay networks between Virtual Datacenters within your Abiquo cloud. Perhaps you have virtual datacenters in different physical locations, or even countries?
3. Use VNS3 to create overlay networks between Virtual Datacenters hosted by our Service Provider customers
In each case the use of VNS3 means that you configure your application network once. Even if you move that application between the three use cases or move between private, public and hybrid Cloud configurations.
