<ul><li><p>PRODUCT BRIEF </p><p>CLOUDLINK SECURITY AND MANAGEMENT </p><p>SOFTWARE SUITE </p><p>Copyright AFORE Solutions Inc. All rights reserved. Rev 1.0 </p><p>Concerns over cloud security, manageability, performance, and reliability have been the biggest barriers </p><p>to the more rapid and wider spread adoption of cloud services. Leveraging the cloud offers enterprises </p><p>significant cost savings and flexibility and Cloud Service Providers compelling revenue generating </p><p>opportunities. AFOREs CloudLink software suite combines cloud infrastructure security and </p><p>manageability with performance monitoring to protect mission critical data in motion and at rest. </p><p>SECURE, MANAGE, AND MONITOR PRIVATE, HYBRID, AND PUBLIC CLOUDS </p><p>CloudLink is installed as a virtual appliance in private, hybrid, and public clouds </p><p>to secure virtual resource pools virtual machines (VM), networks, and data </p><p>stores in multi-tenant environments. All network and storage data is encrypted </p><p>with the enterprise having full control over encryption keys and security policy. </p><p>CloudLink seamlessly integrates with virtualization and cloud infrastructures and </p><p>it can be set up as a cloud service template making it easy to order and self-</p><p>provision. </p><p>CLOUDLINK ARCHITECTURE </p><p>CloudLink consists of three key components and can be installed into data centers </p><p>and cloud environments without impacting the existing network and storage </p><p>infrastructure. </p><p>CloudLink vNode is a software virtual appliance deployed in the cloud. The vNode </p><p>acts as the communications endpoint between VMs in the virtual data center </p><p>(VDC) and the enterprise network. vNode works with the gateway on the </p><p>enterprise side for end-to-end performance monitoring and testing. Inside the </p><p>cloud, vNode interacts with the cloud infrastructure layer to encrypt storage, </p><p>collect logs and events, monitor the VMs and storage, and feed the management </p><p>information back to the enterprise. </p><p>CloudLink Gateway is a software virtual appliance deployed inside the enterprise </p><p>data center. The CloudLink Gateway communicates with CloudLink vNodes </p><p>deployed in the cloud to create a secure Ethernet overlay to the enterprise </p><p>specific VDCs. The CloudLink Gateway authenticates vNodes, monitors </p><p>connectivity, initiates performance testing, and pushes the enterprise controlled </p><p>encryption keys via the secure tunnel to the vNodes deployed in the cloud. </p><p>CloudLink Center is a management application that can be utilized as a web </p><p>application or as a VMware vCenter plug-in. It manages the CloudLink Gateway </p><p>and vNode, administers trust policies, configures encrypted storage volumes, </p><p>monitors end-to-end network performance, reports events, logs and alarms, and </p><p>presents the enterprise topology. </p><p>BENEFITS </p><p>For the enterprise: </p><p>- Security and privacy in the cloud. - Secure disaster recovery into the </p><p>cloud. </p><p>- Enterprise controls its VDCs in the cloud. </p><p>- Layer 2 Ethernet Overlay for easy workload migration to the cloud. </p><p>- Seamless integration of cloud VDC with enterprise IT </p><p>infrastructure. </p><p>- No application or network changes required. </p><p>- Powerful network performance monitoring and fault diagnostics. </p><p>- Ease compliance auditing. - Integration with VMware to </p><p>ease management. </p><p>For the Cloud Service Provider: </p><p>- Adding encryption services into cloud service portfolio for </p><p>broader customer appeal. </p><p>- Broadens potential customer base by enabling hosting of </p><p>workloads subject to regulatory </p><p>compliance. </p><p>- Tenant-based storage encryption facilitates coexistence of multiple </p><p>tenants on a single host/storage </p><p>array. </p><p>- Powerful network performance </p><p>monitoring and fault diagnostics. </p></li><li><p>PRODUCT BRIEF </p><p>CLOUDLINK SECURITY AND MANAGEMENT</p><p>Copyright AFORE Solutions Inc.
