Scalable & optimal performance for web connected applications

Your perfect cloud solution is built from one or more x-compute, x-store and x-net resource units which are distributed across Pipe Ten’s next generation node infrastructure to power local cloud instances and your application’s success.

x from Pipe Ten delivers fixed costs, locations and standards compliant cloud computing to accelerate and scale.

Every X solution is provided with:

  • Full managed hardware and virtualisation infrastructure to ISO27001 and PCI DSS standards
  • Web based orchestration control panel for the creation and management of local cloud instances across multiple  hardware nodes
  • 24/7/365 access to Pipe Ten’s engineering expertise to assist your management or manage on your behalf
  • Easy access to Pipe Ten’s Monitoring, Patching, Licensing, Security, Backup and other supporting services
  • Only pay for the resources you need when you need them.

 

Provides network communication between the public internet and local cloud instances, or privately between local cloud instances.

  • pfSense stateful packet inspection firewalling
  • High Availability Active/Passive as default
  • High Availability & Diversity WAN Internet /29 IPv4
  • High Availability LAN Private VLAN between nodes
  • Optional IPSec, OpenVPN, L2TP over IPSec & more
  • Optional NIDS, NIPS & UTM like capabilities
  • Public ingress/egress per 250GB data transfer, or 10Mbps 95th percentile bandwidth

Provides processor and memory resource units to be divided between or shared by local cloud instances.

  • RAM & CPU resource allocations bundled into units
  • Example x-compute unit is 16GB RAM & 8 vCPU
  • One or more x-compute units are assigned to physical nodes
  • Multiple x-compute units may be assigned to multiple locations
  • Local cloud instances then are created and managed as required

examples

SaaS provider customer Y requires HA (High Availability) networking, HA firewalling, HA load balancing and ability to deploy server instances for own/multiple customer use or private customer use with optional HA; along with fully audit-able compliance to standards / specification.

  • Uses 1*x-net: To provide basic ingress/egress firewalling between website visitors via the public Internet/WAN via isolated VLAN to load balancer instances within their x-compute.
  • Uses 10*x-compute:
    • 2* x-compute units are assigned to two different nodes in the same DC, within which HA load balancing cloud instances are created.
    • 6* x-compute units are assigned to 6 different nodes in the same DC, within which cloud instances running the customers software are created to process the public requests passed by the firewalls and load balancers.
    • 1* x-compute units are assigned to 1 different nodes in the same DC, within which automation, administration or vpn cloud instances can be created in isolation of others.
    • 1* x-compute units are assigned to 1 different nodes in the same DC, within which deployment, testing/uat and similar cloud instances can be created in isolation of others.
  • Uses 20*x-store: To provide moderate HA and high Performance storage to the x-compute and cloud instances for assets, databases, OS or otherwise.
  • Uses other Pipe Ten services such as off-solution backup, licensing and patching services for common OS and security software, monitoring and expertise to assist in managing the customer environment.
