Advans Cloud Services

The Advans Cloud Computing team deploys and supports software applications in private, hybrid and public clouds to deliver high performance and security. Using netPulz technology, Advans has managed cloud services: Virtual Private Cloud, Cloud Migration, Cloud Connect, Cloud Support, and Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service.


Virtual Private Cloud

A netPulz VPC guarantees that all connections to your network are under your control and you are isolated from the rest of the customers hosted in a public cloud such as Amazon, Azure, Google, Oracle, etc.

  • You Control Access to your Resources
  • Make your own virtual LAN in a Public Cloud
  • Eliminate breaches due to compromised neighbors

With your own VPC, network access is managed by your organization, and you don’t have to rely upon Amazon, Microsoft, Google or Oracle to secure access. All routing within your virtual LAN is under your control, which eliminates the threat of intrusion because a breach by a neighbor’s shared technology.


Cloud Migration

Advans has a Cloud Practice devoted to migrating physical servers, applications and data to the cloud quickly using netPulz. Our customers obtain worry free offsite backups and a disaster recovery strategy:

  • No servers to buy, replace or manage
  • Eliminate outages and have easy offsite backups
  • Lower your Total Cost of Ownership for IT

Advans’ netPulz networking appliance makes cloud migrations easy and cost-effective, without disrupting day-to-day operations.


Cloud Connect

With netPulz technology, connecting a LAN to a cloud with an SD-WAN is easy, secure and provides flexibility, as any telecom circuit, including MPLS and the Internet backbone can be used. With netPulz, our customers build networks using multiple telecom connections simultaneously making them more reliable, with the ability to add bandwidth incrementally as needed.

A netPulz Software-Defined WAN provides:

  • Bandwidth Aggregation, Load-Balancing and Fail-Over
  • Software-Defined WAN
  • Network Encryption

Like a VPN, netPulz provides encrypted tunnels across the Internet, with all the routing of capabilities of a traditional WAN. But because netPulz can aggregate the bandwidth of multiple telecom connections, with load balancing and fail-over, the Internet backbone can inexpensively provide all the bandwidth and application performance your users demand.

Advans has a white paper comparing a netPulz SD-WAN to traditional WAN’s at: http://www.advansit.com/docs/netPulz_VPLAN.pdf


Cloud Support

From our office in Chennai, Advans supports any cloud infrastructure 24x7 with a dedicated team and a Network Operations Center hosted in Advans’ Marlborough MA datacenter. In addition to monitoring and alerting, the Advans NOC contains an online ticketing system, network audit logs and a customer knowledge base.


Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service

Using netPulz technology, Advans has a unique Disaster Recovery Service providing automated fail-over between the primary and secondary site. Because netPulz works at the network level, all netPulz Network Controllers may be programmed to automatically reroute traffic based on the availability of connections. So if a site, or an application goes down, end users may be automatically re-routed. Another reason why this is possible is due to netPulz’s ability to preserve the existing address space. This means that the same IP address can exist simultaneously for different applications and devices and netPulz can still route traffic successfully.

Preserving the address space in both the primary and DR site means that applications do not need to be recoded with new IP addresses, nor are any network modifications necessary. It is this feature that makes Cloud Migrations with netPulz easy and fast.
