As the backbone of many of our service offerings, the reliability and capacity of the Micron21 Network is paramount. It is essential that the network performs at the highest level and we ensure it is never flooded or over-saturated. This is not just a philosophy. It's our policy.
We pass the benefits of this robust, secure network on to you. Some of the advanced features include:
The A10 Web Application Firewall is a cluster of physical or virtual appliances that sits between your server and the rest of the internet. WAF mitigates threats that would normally come through a webserver or website exploit. Websites are the most often overlooked attack vector of any organisation, but any harm done to your public website can harm your public image. With the WAF your web server will be protected and run more efficiently.
The A10 DNS Application Firewall is a cluster of physical or appliances that we route your DNS traffic through. DAF is capable of removing illegitimate DNS requests and helps alleviate infrastructure pressure from normal growth. The outcome is faster DNS responses, meaning a faster load time for your customers.
Full image backups are an essential tool for Business Continuity - in the event of an update failure, a compromised service, or even human error, full image backups are the most reliable disaster recovery option for cloud servers.
We configure your IPs to be advertised from multiple network locations, meaning that if an ISP goes offline, a cable gets cut, or any other unlikely failure takes place, your services will remain online from a second, third or forth location.
Running your cloud servers from our redundant network storage, your Cloud Server can fail over to any physical host in our cluster if a problem with the hardware should arise. This can save hours of recovery time, and is completely automatic – no action required for immediate recovery from server failure.
Securely connect your cloud servers with Micron21's VPN, which is encrypted between your computer and your cloud server gateway. This added security makes your servers, your data, and your business safer overall.
Micron21 cloud servers all exist within our managed VMWare environment and we can set up a private VLAN for you to establish internal unmonitored traffic. This adds more security to your network, and can allow you to transfer data without using public bandwidth.
We can load balance traffic, protocols, or entire sessions between your Cloud Servers. The level of detail in the Load Balancing is completely configurable - we can provide caching and automatic service failover in the event that a load balanced cloud server stops responding.
We can load balance incoming requests to geographically diverse locations. As a result, customers receive cached static and load balanced dynamic content via our content delivery network all over the globe. This provides a better response time for your international customers and improves your server's overall speed.
We can provide additional IP address space for your appliance. If you have your own range of IP addresses, we can also sponsor those for you through our geographically redundant DNS servers.
Connect your building or office to your Cloud Virtual Private Network. This unmetered connection allows you to be more productive when interacting with your Cloud environment, and is much faster than regular ADSL.
We can provide High Availability through BGP Any Cast Routing. Any Cast Routing provides low-latency responses for clients all over the globe, for faster loading content with greater redundancy.
