Vyatta Supports the Amazon Web Services Cloud

Vyatta Supports the Amazon Web Services Cloud

Vyatta Network OS 6.3 is now available as an Amazon Machine Images (AMI).

The new release offers comprehensive network security for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud with new AMI custom support packages, notes Vyatta, a specialist in software-based networking for physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures.

For those unaware, an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) is a special type of pre-configured operating system and virtual application software that aid in creating a virtual machine within the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

According to Amazon, AMI serves as the basic unit of deployment for services delivered using EC2.

Amazon cloud customers can leverage Vyatta Network OS AMI to build out secure multi-tier, multi-location architectures within Amazon VPC environments that include the same connectivity, network security and threat protection available from hardware devices in their enterprise datacenters.

Scheduled to be availability from today, September 15, 2011, the Vyatta Network OS AMI offers the most complete virtual networking solution available today.

The release includes stateful firewall, IPSec and SSL-based VPN, intrusion prevention, web filtering, QoS, dynamic routing and more.

“One of our primary objectives for Vyatta Network OS 6.3 was to deliver an on-demand networking solution that provides enterprise-level security for organizations expanding their use of cloud-based environments,” said Tom McCafferty, vice president of marketing at Vyatta. “Providing support for the Amazon Web Services cloud provides a completely virtual networking and security solution for enterprise customers that can operate in Amazon-based public cloud and be migrated to private cloud environments.”

Vyatta delivers a software-based network operating system that is portable to standard x86 hardware as well as common virtualization and cloud computing platforms.

The company was in news earlier this month for receiving its fourth straight InfoWorld Bossie Award for best open source software solution for the data center and cloud.
