As hybrid cloud deployments become standard, enterprises need solutions to rapidly connect applications running on a variety of infrastructure to retain business agility. That’s where Zentera comes in. Zentera’s CoIP Platform solution creates a “universal VPC” that connects and secures application workloads across complex hybrid environments. The CoIP Platform works with any infrastructure in any environment, do not interfere with existing network security, and are being deployed in less than a day.
Hybrid Cloud Architecture
The CoIP overlay routes application traffic over a web services framework in a way that is transparent to both the application and the details of the underlying physical networks.
CoIP LAN is an overlay network that connects distributed resources as if they are running in a LAN environment in the overlay infrastructure. The underlay physical connections are required among the resources to support CoIP LAN tunnels.
CoIP WAN is an overlay network that connects distributed resources across wide area, physical network domains as if they are running in a unified WAN environment in the overlay infrastructure. The underlay physical networks are fragmented. CoIP WAN builds SSL tunnels using the fragmented physical networks.
CoIP Controller (zCenter)
The Controller governs every aspect of communications within a CoIP overlay network. It provides a central enforcement point for all network and security policies, and can be deployed as a Linux physical or a virtual appliance. The Controller offers options of web-GUI as well as API for automated management and control of a CoIP Platform deployment. The Controller supports high-availability (HA) operation.
ZNS Switch Node
The ZNS Switch Node bridges CoIP overlay connections. Multiple ZNS Switch Nodes nodes can be clustered for higher availability and throughput. The ZNS Switch Node is available as a Linux physical or virtual appliance.
Deployed to serve multiple virtual machines, a CoIP Edge Gateway provides an onramp to the overlay network. A single Edge Gateway can be used to connect a service into the overlay network (for example, Microsoft Active Directory), while multiple Edge Gateways can be used to bridge subnets together.
Endpoint Gateway (zLink)
A CoIP Endpoint Gateway deploys on an endpoint to provide overlay network services, including overlay addressing and security filtering and segmentation. CoIP Endpoint Gateways are available for practically any Linux or Windows platform.
