(PresseBox) ( Nürnberg, )
NETWAYS is proud to be among the pioneering hosting providers in Germany offering Software Defined Networking (SDN). With the innovative SDN technology customers can operate their own virtual data center (VDC) and isolate different networks.

SDN virtualizes an artificial and independent network in an overlay network without having to adapt the underlay, the actual hardware, e.g. switches and routers, to the respective circumstances and requirements.

Benefits for the client:

Ease-of-use | There is no need to manually build the hardware, no time for implementations required, not even the help of a network administrator: The NWS Cloud user can just operate his VDC by himself and make networks available at the push of a button.
Clear Organization | Companies create different networks mainly for organizational reasons. NWS Cloud clients can build projects with internal and external networks, differentiate customers or create subprojects to organize their business
Dynamic Changes | Customers can also quickly adapt their IT to new business needs. Loadbalancing, firewalling, VPN – simple and swift
Newest Technology | The NETWAYS Web Services (NWS) rely on Cumulus Linux in combination with Mellanox hardware for the underlay and Midonet's SDN solution for the overlay.
Security | Security comes first! All data is secure and in good hands in two ISO-certified, replicated and distributed data centers in Germany.

SDN guarantees a fast provisioning of network resources as well as the ability to freely design and build ones architecture. Sebastian Saemann, Head of Managed Services: „We are especially proud to have this service in our portfolio.“

With NETWAYS Cloud based on OpenStack NETWAYS concentrates on providing customers with an Infrastructure as a Service, that is simple, scalable, and managed to individual needs. A large pool of computing, storage and networking resources can be used to built exactly the environment the customer wishes.

The NETWAYS Cloud combines world-class service with the latest technology, hosted in two ISO-certified, replicated and distributed data centers in Germany.
