Network and Connectivity Services

Network and Connectivity Services are available as basic features included in the Virtual Machine service and in Data Center Extension service, or as additional services through automatic or manual workflows. These services enable virtual networking that extend the data center towrds the cloud. They also allow to instantiate special virtual machines with NFV (Network Function Virtualization) functions for detailed configurations of Firewalls and Load Balancers.

Cloudeng Virtual Networking

One of the key values of Cloudeng is the full automation offered for deployment and configuration of Virtual Networking

Virtual Networking is a key component and allows to abstract the virtual network away from the underlying physical network; to run multiple virtual networks securely isolated from each other all with the illusion that they are each alone on the physical network;  to move VMs around in the physical network without having to reconfigure the physical network, including the IP address and VLANs.

Routing beyond a vm network. Cloudeng virtual networks have a network edge that controls what traffic can come in and out in the form of an HNV gateway. It provides a bridge between a particular VM network and either the physical network or other VM networks. It provides the following capabilities: Forwarding, S2S  VPN, Remote Access (Point-to-Site)NAT/Load Balancing.


Macchine virtuali NFV

Cloudeng enables the creation of virtual machines for Network Function Virtualization (NFV) functions. Some of the services are available and offered through a fully automated workflow. The portal allows to instantiate NFV workloads based on predefined templates. Products offered are the technological reference of the market, but it is possible, on request, to create new models based on products not currently in the catalog.

  • NFV Firewall

  • NFV Load Balancer

  • NFV Reverse Proxy

Managed services

  • Estensione del piano di indirizzamento del cliente
    Virtual networking enable for Virtual Machines Data and Center Extension Services the connection to client-based infrastructure. These custom configurations require interaction with Competence Center Cloud network specialists, through simple and fast procedures, based on proven and documented experience.
  • QoS 
    Connectivity services can be configured with guaranteed Quality of Service. This detailes configuration requires interaction with the Competence Center Cloud network specialists.
  • Internet Connectivity
    CloudEng enables access to resources through the secure connection via the Internet or dedicated and customized solutions for the client. Engineering cloud can cooperate with the existing farm in virtualized Data Engineering center in order to enable bi-directional workload migration.
  • WAN connectivity
    Engineering Data Centers are directly connected to the MIX, TPIX and NAMEX circuits. GÉANT, the pan-European research and education network that interconnects Europe’s National Research and Education Networks (NRENs), is connected to MIX.
