Pertino Cloud Networking
The cloud is shaking up traditional IT infrastructure, making it possible for any size business to afford and adopt enterprise-class apps, storage, and computing without the traditional cost and complexity. However, one area of IT—networking—has been slow to leverage the power of the cloud. With Pertino, that’s changing.
Pertino is reinventing networking for the cloud era. Our Cloud Network Engine overlays cloud data centers around the world and leverages virtualization and software-defined networking technologies to create secure, private cloud networks that extend LAN-like connectivity everywhere using the Internet. And that’s just the beginning. Pertino is also reinventing network services by virtualizing security, visibility, and control functionality, making it possible to add network services with a “click” instead of a box.
For small and medium-sized businesses, this has big implications. The inherent simplicity, flexibility, and reliability of cloud networking means businesses can lower the cost to deploy and manage networks inside and outside the four walls of the office. Pertino cloud networking offers rapid deployment, simple administration, pay-as-you-go subscription pricing, built-in scalability and redundancy, and requires no new hardware or software updates. This means networks that used to take weeks, or even months, to plan, configure and deploy now take minutes, giving IT pros time to escape break-fix and invest in more strategic business projects.
Maintaining Visibility And Control in a Partly Cloudy World With Microsoft DirectAccess and Pertino
With the rise of SaaS and cloud services, users are spending more time connecting over the Internet and less time on office LANs. That means IT has less visibility and control of remote users and their endpoint devices. Microsoft DirectAccess and Pertino enable Sys Admins to maintain visibility and control in a partly cloud world.
Why Cloud-based DaaS Is Blowing New Life Into VDI
Over the last five years, the merits of VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) have been widely debated. Today, service providers are leveraging the cloud to provide distributed, scalable and resilient Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offerings that deliver on the promise of VDI for a broader set of SMB and enterprise customers. This shift is blowing new life into the VDI market.
Extend AD to remote sites and users
For many system and network administrators, Active Directory (AD) provides a critical tool for maintaining security and control of servers, desktops and users within an office and across the campus. However, it can be challenging to extend AD domains to smaller remote sites, mobile users and newly acquired organizations. While a number of options are available, most are costly and difficult to implement and maintain.
Creating a VPC network? Come back to the future!
The hallmarks of deploying public cloud computing are simplicity, agility and rapidity. Setting up a hybrid or multi-cloud VPC using cloud provider VPN options is anything but. Here's a comparison of the steps it takes to setup a simple VPC network on Amazon AWS and Pertino.
Top 3 Networking Trends for 2015
A confluence of technological and IT trends relating to mobile and cloud are creating dramatic changes in how and where people work, computing workloads are processed, and work applications are delivered. What these changes all have in common is that they make businesses more dependent than ever on the Internet as their WAN—an inherently best effort infrastructure with limited visibility, security and control. This effect of mobile and cloud on IT and the elevation of the best effort Internet to business critical status are poised to transform networking in 2015.
