NetFoundry signs new partner to implement cloud solutions

22 Jan 2019

NetFoundryannounced its cloud partnership with myCloudDoor. As businesses evolve to the Microsoft Azure cloud, they have two challenges; first, moving applications and data into the cloud, particularly critical business apps such as SAP, and second maintaining hybrid application environments which need integration with resources across Azure Cloud and Azure Stack. 

While myCloudDoor provides effective strategies for solving these, they have found that many projects have developed challenges such as budget overruns, unnecessary complexity, and significant scope creep due to connectivity of traditional methods which are normally out of their scope – typically transient IPSec tunnels over Internet circuits, which have very limited throughput and performance assurances, or dedicated MPLS circuits, which can take months to establish, are expensive, and complex to provision. 

Their solution is to provide NetFoundry to their customers enabling private and direct overlay networks over the internet which are cloud-native, simple and quick to deploy, highly secure and performant as well as requiring no proprietary hardware.

This has supposedly enabled myCloudDoor to reduce their customers’ time-to-deployment and project durations while streamlining and securing the application connectivity regardless of the underlying network. 

NetFoundry supposedly makes it easy to instantly spin up software-only, highly secure, performant, edge-to-cloud networks to any Azure workload or form-factor over the Internet using web-based orchestration tools and APIs with micro-segmented networks called AppWANs – via myCloudMAS Solution (Cloud Management and Automation Suite). 

In one instance, NetFoundry reduced data transit time from two days with a traditional VPN tunnel to less than eight hours with an AppWAN, using the same Internet connection. Finally, if any changes need to be made, such as connections to ancillary applications that may have been overlooked, this can be mitigated in minutes, rather than days or weeks with other connectivity options.

NetFoundry AppWANs can supposedly facilitate enterprise application deployment and operations, such as SAP on Azure. Backend services for an application will typically be spread across Microsoft Regions, Hybrid Azure (Azure Stack), private data centres, and multi-cloud environments. 

Enterprise critical applications on Azure, such as SAP, require both highly performant and secure connectivity, each of which can supposedly be easily implemented and operated using NetFoundry AppWANs without requiring dedicate and proprietary hardware.
