Want a unique firewall, router, or load balancing scheme? Go configure.
Add yet another level of customization to your SoftLayer solution with a gateway appliance: a bare metal server with Vyatta Network OS for x86 servers (subscription edition) pre-installed. Create virtual routers, firewalls, load-balancers, and more that fit your unique application requirements, all built on the rock solid performance of a dedicated system and the security and uptime of the SoftLayer triple-network architecture.
Plus you'll get a new level of solution scalability with the ability to rapidly expand and grow your network configuration just by deploying software images on demand rather than deploying and configuring physical network hardware. Just log into the SoftLayer Customer Portal and control and customize your gateway at will.
Scale and configure your network the way you want, on demand, without compromising design, security, or performance.
Secure your network infrastructure by using the gateway appliance as a firewall. Advanced firewall capabilities include zone and time-based firewalling and P2P filtering. You can also create and enforce security and compliance requirements that physical network hardware offers.
The gateway appliance includes quality of service (QoS) queuing mechanisms that can be applied to inbound traffic and outbound traffic for identifying and prioritizing network traffic flows.
Gateway appliances include Vyatta Subscription Edition and Intel Xeon 1230 or 1270 servers. Configurations listed here can be further customized based on unique application requirements. Click the Order Now button to order the package as-is or add more RAM and storage to suit your needs.
