Indestructible VPN Site2Site™
XRoads Networks is the inventor of the "indestructible" VPN Virtualization™ technology. Utilizing our Site2Site™ technology, our ability to virtualize VPN connections through multi-WAN link is unique in that it can combine multiple secure VPN tunnels at the same time in order to increase total available bandwidth and significantly improve redundancy and reliability between sites and/or remote offices.
VPN Virtualization™ - Virtualized VPN Tunnels
VPN Virtualization enables network administrators to combine multiple VPN tunnels across two or more WAN links in order speed up communications between sites, reduce congestion, mitigate network delays, and improve redundancy and reliability of existing connectivity.
VPN Virtualization includes integrated security features not found in other solutions on the market today. VPN Virtualization is designed to reduce cost through the use of inexpensive broadband connections, like DSL, cable, wireless, for transferring data between sites.
VPN Virtualization can also be used in conjunction with MPLS by offloading streaming applications like VoIP across a separate non-parallel and unbound network path. This functionality enables the best of both connection methods while reducing costs and improving performance which increases productivity.
VPN Virtualization works in conjunction with various WAN Optimization technologies which are designed to accelerate data between sites, when WAN Optimization is combined with VPN Virtualization the benefits are multiplied.
Optimize Branch Office / Remote Office Application Delivery
Organizations with branch offices are constantly looking for more effective methods for providing remote users with access to centralized applications and network resources. XRoads Networks' Site2Site tunnels can be used to improve performance between two or more sites by leveraging multiple WAN links in order to cost effectively increase the available bandwidth between sites. Site2Site also provides the ability for customers to achieve 99.999% reliability through automated link failover, something other optimization solutions don't offer.
Improved Responsiveness (Caching & QoS)
The Site2Site tunnel module includes built-in application caching and works with our DBM module to provide end-to-end QoS for mission critical applications. The caching module speeds up file transfers and improves the performance of large downloads by compressing data in real-time as it is sent over the Site2Site tunnel, then the data is decompressed on the remote end. Additionally, our Site2Site tunnels automatically adjust TCP windowing in order to improve performance across slower and/or high latency links.
Automated MPLS / Branch Office Redundancy
Many organizations have moved to an MPLS infrastructure for their wide-area network deployments. MPLS is expensive but provides exceptional network connectivity with built-in QoS, however it lacks redundancy at the edge. If an outage occurs at either end of the MPLS circuit, then potentially all of the remote sites could be down. XRoads Networks' Site2Site solutions enable our customers to setup a secure and inexpensive Internet-based redundancy solution to ensure automated failover in the event of an MPLS outage.
MultiWAN Optimization = WAN Optimization + Link Bonding / Automated Failover
Our unique VPN virtualization technology includes built-in QoS and automated Internet-based failover capabilities. Additionally, customers can combine multiple inexpensive broadband links (DSL, cable, wireless, etc.) in order to increase bandwidth between sites, as an alternative to using more expensive private T1, Frame Relay or MPLS connectivity. XRoads Networks' MultiWAN Optimization reduces remote office connectivity costs by up to 50% (through lower bandwidth costs and improved productivity), increases application responsiveness vs. a single T1 Internet connection, and provides 99.999% redundancy in the event of a network outage. No other remote office connectivity solution can produce the ROI delivered by the EdgeXOS platform.
How Does It Work?
Our Site2Site module can combine multiple sites together via one or more SSL tunnels. Tunnels can be placed in an automated failover manner so that upon a link outage, the tunnel will automatically re-establish over the secondary connection. Further, when two or more tunnels are configured the appliance can selectively route traffic in a manner which optimizes the bandwidth available via each tunnel connection.
The Problem: Connecting two or more offices can be done via most VPN technologies, however ensuring that they stay connected and are optimized is a challenge for most security appliances.
With the ability to connect two or more tunnels between offices, the EdgeXOS platform can also optimize the bandwidth by setting up specific application routes which brake-up the network traffic and thus provide faster overall throughput between the offices. The data between offices can be further segmented based on destination network.
