ZeroOutages, a service division of XRoads Networks, and a leader in SD-WAN deployments, today announced the launch of its CloudDMZ services. The CloudDMZ service enables customers to deploy application delivery (data center servers) through an extended LAN environment with one-hop performance from the customer’s network to their private CloudDMZ infrastructure.
The CloudDMZ service is designed to assist customers and their MSP partners with the task of virtualizing the local area network (VDI, VoIP, security, etc), by essentially putting the customer’s data center within the ZeroOutages global SD-WAN network.
Virtualization is the process of moving critical network components from the local area network to the cloud. The CloudDMZ service accelerates this process by placing these cloud components directly on-net with the rest of the organizations secure SD-WAN infrastructure.
Some of the benefits of ZeroOutages CloudDMZ service include: improved security, greater resiliency of the network connectivity, easier deployment of new application servers, and fewer network hops between the customers local area network and their mission critical application servers.
Each CloudDMZ service is deployed as a separate private network for each customer; all network traffic is segmented and secured. Customers access their CloudDMZ infrastructure via a private Layer-3 cloud which stretches across ZeroOutages global SD-WAN network to each of the customers offices.
“Our goal with the CloudDMZ service was to deliver on the promise of SD-WAN. This service assists our customers with lowering costs and improving both the performance and portability of their mission critical applications.” – Daren French, VP Business Development, ZeroOutages
A key promise of SD-WAN has been the ability to lower costs for new customers by up to 50%. While this has been accomplished in some cases by eliminating expensive MPLS circuits, not all customers have seen this reduction in costs.
By providing customers with a local on-net “extended LAN” environment via CloudDMZ, ZeroOutages provides the security, redundancy and one-hop infrastructure required to deliver on the value of virtualization and the promise of SD-WAN.
ZeroOutages is a global SD-WAN services organization, providing secure and resilient network connectivity for SMB and enterprise customers along with their Managed Service Provider partners. ZeroOutages has one of the most extensive MSP partner networks in the industry and is dedicated to servicing this channel.
