VPSie to introduce Private Cloud Solution (PCS)

 

 

PCS

 

Private Cloud Solution (PCS) is a cutting edge solution to fill the gap between public and private networks with simplicity.

There is always a debate on having resources on public internet for easy setup or have it behind a dedicated firewall for security in such an unsafe Internet world, Even though it’s proven that the later solution is desired however not all of us knows how to set that up or have it working at least without having to study several best practices or follow a use case scenarios.

This has been a dilemma for every successful small business looking to add layers of security and control within their live environment and at the very least ability to block an attacker once detected.

VPSie introduced PCS to simplify the security aspects  and answer all those concerns in few simple clicks.

If you have been using VPSie for a while then you already know that you could have VPSie(s) servers on private networking and probably you have seen PCS tab while logged in to your portal.

Once you enable PCS – in less than a minute you will have all your private resources behind a dedicated firewall, Within our portal you will be able to perform tasks that used to take hours to get working in less than a minute.

You will see an option to enable NAT (Network Address Translation) and once enabled all your servers within your private cloud (by default) will have internet access while protected for internet malicious traffic.

In one click you could simply add port-forward , 1:1 NAT or even control inbound and outbound traffic within our simple to use and innovative dashboard.

I have created a simple digram on how traffic flow through out VPSie network to illustrate the basic usage of PCS.

Traffic that traverse over any of our redundant edge routers are routed either to a VPSie with public IP or to a firewall within PCS.

The digram illustrates a scenario with 4 VPSie(s) within a datacenter – One VPSie is on public network and fully exposed to the internet while the other 3 are added to PCS.

Node 1 & node 2 have internet access and node 3 doesn’t have internet access – This is a common scenario with 2 web-servers (node 1 & node 2) serving clients and one database server (node 3), While all 3 nodes can have direct private connection to each others only 2 nodes are exposed to the internet and the database is protected behind PCS.

Note that client 3 traffic is blocked while the other 2 clients traffic (client1 & client2) are allowed.

Other than adding a layer of security from public internet traffic you could also have selective internet access to one or more of your VPSie(s) within your private cloud, This is very useful for many cases like for example you may temporarily need internet access to update database server and apply some patches then disable access to maintain specific level of security.
