Pertino Simplifies Extending VPCs Across WANs and Between Providers

Pertino's Cloud Network Engine Enables Deployment of Overlay Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks in minutes -- Connecting Cloud Servers Across Sites, Regions and Cloud Providers

LOS GATOS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/14 -- Pertino, a company reinventing networking for the cloud era, today announced a modern approach to WAN-based VPC using its Cloud Network Engine service. As cloud adoption increases, so does the demand for extending VPC over the WAN to connect public cloud servers across different regions and providers and with remote servers and users. Today's WAN-based VPC solutions are very complicated and inflexible, creating significant friction with the dynamic and elastic cloud infrastructures they connect. The Pertino Cloud Network Engine enables IT and DevOps professionals to build secure, cloud-based VPCs in minutes--without configuration or hardware -- that work anywhere with any public cloud provider.

According to IDC, worldwide spending on Hosted Private Cloud services is set to surpass $24 billion in 2016, and analysts "anticipate that virtual private cloud will be the predominant operational model for companies wanting to take advantage of the speed and lower capital costs associated with cloud computing."

VPCs within a single cloud data center or zone are easy to deploy because they are based on data center virtual LANs. Extending VPCs across the WAN is difficult due to dependencies on legacy VPN technology. VPN appliances, whether in physical or virtual form, lack the innate cloud characteristics of simplicity, elasticity, flexibility and automation. With a two-side implementation and hundreds of parameters, extending VPC over the WAN requires significant skill, coordination and configuration for customers to deploy and manage.

VPC Made Easy, Made Instantly

The Pertino Cloud Network Engine is a software-defined network-as-a-service platform that runs on public cloud infrastructures, leveraging the automation and orchestration tools used by leading cloud providers. Using Pertino, IT and DevOps pros can instantly build VPCs by deploying a secure cloud network to span multiple users, sites, regions or even cloud providers. Pertino VPCs use host-to-host virtual overlay networks, so customers get a self-contained, end-to-end solution that they can control without cloud provider dependencies.

"Using Pertino, I can spin-up cloud environments in minutes using any combination of private and public cloud servers needed to support my workloads," said Nick Antone, director of information systems at ESN. "Since Pertino allows me to build and reconfigure VPCs instantly, I can adjust cloud environments on the fly, so there's no wasted resources."

Instant VPC: Ready for DevOps to Take For a "Spin"

For DevOps organizations that are constantly spinning up and down cloud instances to meet their bursty workloads, Pertino can help dramatically reduce idle computing cycles and save money. Spinning up hundreds of new cloud servers on a Pertino VPC can be done in minutes using popular automation tools such as Puppet and Chef to deploy and authenticate Pertino's cloud network stack during the server instantiation process. Idle cloud servers can be spun down just as fast.

"WAN-based VPCs create a lot of friction and pain for DevOps teams that need instant, elastic clouds to support their dynamic workloads," said Scott Hankins, Pertino co-founder and CTO. "The core VPN technology that underpins today's VPC solutions is several generations behind the current state of cloud networking. We pursued a clean-slate approach with the belief that to build a better VPC for networking clouds across the WAN, you need to start with a cloud-based network."

VPC Your Way

Pertino is the only self-contained and customer-controlled VPC solution that supports all major VPC uses cases and works with any private or public cloud infrastructure:

  • Multi-Cloud: Connect instances, cloud regions and providers (AWS and Rackspace)
  • Hybrid Cloud: Connect private and public clouds into a single private network
  • Remote Access: Connect remote users to public cloud servers from anywhere
  • Remote Control: Secure network for remote management of public cloud instances

Pertino's Cloud Network Engine is the only network-as-a-service platform today that combines cloud, SDN and network virtualization technologies to extend the simplicity, elasticity and flexibility of the cloud to WAN-based VPCs.

About Pertino
Founded in 2011, Pertino has an inspired vision for reinventing networking for the cloud era, and in the process, being a catalyst for democratizing IT for small-to-medium businesses. Globalization, cloud-enabled IT, and growing demand for always-connected people, devices, and things is affecting businesses of all sizes - making the "outside network" as critical as the inside one. However, traditional wide-area networks have not kept pace. Pertino's revolutionary Cloud Network Engine enables an IT person, regardless of skill level, to build a secure and reliable cloud network in minutes that connects people everywhere to IT resources anywhere. To achieve this breakthrough, Pertino has developed a software-driven cloud platform that combines the power and pervasiveness of the cloud with network virtualization and Software-defined Network (SDN) technology. The company is venture funded and headquartered in Los Gatos, Calif. For more information or to try Pertino free for yourself, please visit pertino.com.
