*VNS3 works as a hybrid device that acts as virtual routers, switches, SSL VPN concentrators, IPSec VPN concentrators, firewalls, and protocol re-distributors.
*VNS3 Managers act as tunnel endpoints for extending datacenter LAN to SCE and between cloud regions and data centers.
*VNS3 overlay network provides control over: static addressing for cloud devices; topology control by using VNS3 managers as virtual switches, virtual bridges or virtual routers; popular enterprise protocols like UDP Multicast for service discovery; encrypted communications between all devices in the cloud; and encrypted communications to cloud using existing extranet infrastructure.
VNS3 addresses SmartCloud customers’ concerns of: security, connectivity, cloud federation, multicast protocols, IPsec encryption, managing multiple IPsec gateways, using existing software, data centers, and monitoring tools in public or private cloud environments.
The software-defined networking feature of VNS3 gives SmartCloud users access, visibility and control from the application layer. Run key business computing topologies in the cloud with the required secure access to the corporate data center.
VNS3 creates secure and encrypted VPN connections to your cloud deployment using standard IPsec tunnels. Enterprise IT can regain control of addressing, protocols and encrypted communications in SCE environments.
VNS3's encrypted overlay network allows users to assign IPs and use cloud disabled protocols (e.g. UDP Multicast) required for deployment. VNS3 allows customers to achieve cloud network mobility and agility by extending connectivity to a cloud VNS3 deployment or multiple VNS3 deployments across data centers or cloud regions.
VNS3 Managers are conﬁgurable in a mesh eliminating vendor lock-in and allowing for high availability, geographic distribution, and cloud federation. IBM® SmartCloud users can integrate VNS3 with existing edge and DMZ equipment like IPSsec extranet, intrusion prevention, IDS and stateful inspection devices. VNS3 requires no new knowledge or training to implement.
VNS3 is a pay-as-you-go virtual network server that eliminates cloud networking risk. Meet compliance requirements with VNS3‘s ability to attest to security and control measures. Users can launch and conﬁgure in minutes using a REST API or web-based interface.
VNS3 is the leading application-centric Software Deﬁned Networking (SDN) product. Since its launch in 2008, VNS3 has been used to secure over 40 million virtual device hours in public and private clouds.
VNS3 addresses pain points such as data encryption in third party environments, network privacy, and access and control from the enterprise and business application perspective.
VNS3 is the only SDN product that offers both a highly available overlay network and site-to-site IPsec connectivity with end-to-end data in motion encryption.
CohesiveFT is an IBM® Business Partner - Ready for SmartCloud Services. CohesiveFT was the first third-party server listed in the SCE catalog, and the trial version of VNS3 is still the most used in the catalog. CohesiveFT and VNS3 are vendor, application, OS, and script neutral.
