VMhosts Hosting Services Use Cases

VMhosts Cloud Hosting Services, provides a Highly scalable and secure infrastructure for your cooperate applications, services and data.

Often referred to as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), each customer is provided with external internet connectivity. Using our Cloud Hosting Services Control Panel customers can restrict inbound and Outbound connectivity with our optional perimeter firewall.

Customers using our Cloud Hosting Services are also provided a free internal unmetered secure private VLAN on our 10Gb network. This secure internal network can be protected by any supported firewall appliance, such as pfSense, m0n0wall, WatchGuard, Sophos UTM and many others. Alternatively customers can use our in built Cloud Hosting Services perimeter firewall and use front and back end application deployments.

It doesn’t stop their either, additional single site VLAN’s and interconnected cross site VLAN’s can be purchased allowing creation of complex network environments. These additional VLAN’s could be used for DMZ controlled networks. Interconnected VLAN’s provide direct connectivity with no VPN or routing requirements between our Datacentre locations, helping to simplify the implementation of application level replicated data.


Microsoft Private Hosted Exchange with DAG

Using our Cloud Hosting Services Interconnected Site VLAN, customers can deploy complex Exchange environments using multiple servers for load balancing and availability. A single private RFC 1918 subnet can be used across both physical sites without any required routing or VPN connectivity. Solution and best practices will vary depending on the customer requirements


Web front SQL Back

Many web services rely on a database backend. Separating these services provides enhanced security and load balancing.

Using our Cloud Hosting Services Customers can deploy their own dedicated Firewall appliance, with full control. We don’t use Network address translation (NAT) on our perimeter network. Avoiding anydouble NAT issues or other problems seen with certain protocols like ipsec.

Each server is connected to a single VLAN. Connectivity between the Internet, DMZ and Private VLAN’s can be limited to only allow required traffic. This limits the available attack foot print and also provides greater visibility and control.


Microsoft Remote Desktop Services

This example shows a typical Remote Desktop Services solution. Using a dedicated firewall we are able to provide an ipsec VPN endpoint which will provide site-to-site connectivity between existing office locations. Remote workers benefit from Cloud Hosting Services using SSL providing secure anywhere access to business applications and data.


Simple Web and Application Services

Need to host something simple? We can do that as well. Using our transparent perimeter firewall you can still secure access to your server by limiting access to open ports to the internet. Our perimeter firewall is available to all customers. It is completely free of charge and you have full control over using our control panel.
