A gateway is a network point that works as an access to another network. A gateway device provides communication to a remote network or an autonomous system that is out of bounds for the host network nodes. Gateways serve as the entry and exit point of a network; all data routed inward or outward must first pass through and communicate with the gateway in order to use routing paths. Cloud gateway is the gateway between the different cloud providers and the end-users who is going to use different cloud computing services.
Cloud gateway establishes the connection between the end-user and cloud. By using cloud gateway business units can use different cloud services like migration, cloud compare, monitoring, billing, automation, etc. With Click2Cloud’s CloudsBrain cloud gateway works efficiently. Fig. 1 shows how cloud gateway is working as the part of CloudsBrain. To understand how cloud gateway helps the business units to get connected with cloud providers with the help of cloud refer to fig. 1.
It describes the function of a cloud gateway. Different cloud providers have been shown in it such as AWS, Azure, Google, Alibaba, Huawei, etc. Cloud providers are connected with different business units/users with the help of CloudsBrain. CloudsBrain is the product of Click2Cloud. CloudsBrain has many features like Migration, Monitoring, Cloud Intel, Cloud Compare, Chargeback & Audit, Optimization, etc.
By using these features of CloudsBrain users can access different cloud services. For example, if business units or users want to select cloud then the CloudsBrain is having the feature of cloud compare. Cloud compare feature will compare the clouds with their values and other related parameter and will suggest the appropriate cloud for the business unit. For this complete process initially, all clouds will get added and connected with users, this connectivity between the cloud providers and the user is taken care of by cloud gateway.
The monitoring feature will monitor the cloud computing and cloud migration-related process. Next important parameter of CloudsBrain is migration, different types of cloud migration is possible with CloudsBrain like Click2Cloud, virtual cloud, etc. Cloud gateway is part of the CloudsBrain. Same for other features like cloud Intel, monitoring, automation, optimization, chargeback & audit, migration, storage, consumption, etc.
With a cloud gateway, users will be able to use cloud services efficiently with the help of CloudsBrain features. Cloud gateway is the bridge between the cloud providers and business units. This cloud gateway mainly consists of routers, servers, another device that enables traffic to flow in and out of the network, some hardware. Cloud gateway provides identity-based provisioning and control for all apps, data, and devices. Cloud gateways consist of many cloud computing features which will provide an easy way to use cloud services in an effective and efficient manner.
Cloud gateway enables secure access to clouds and cloud resources, offers optimal tool-set for your cloud migration needs. It accelerates resource provisioning, provides tools for tracking usage and costs, optimizes cloud usage, offers automation using custom-built templates, and compare different services across leading cloud providers. So, one can accelerate their business models with confidence.
Businesses and organizations are moving their workload to the cloud for better agility, performance, and security. Cloud computing is the bellwether of hosting applications and databases to improve the overall efficiency of business processes. The disparity between the on-premise workload and cloud environment workload often results in businesses migrating the workload to the cloud. Cloud technology shows impeccable growth contributing to the adoption of cloud-based computing across many businesses and organizations.
Centaurus, a next-generation cloud for the telecom sector, is an open-source project for building cloud infrastructure platform that can be used to build and manage public or private clouds, edge computing, and edge device datacenter. It is a solution to address key challenges of large-scale clouds such as system scalability, resource efficiency, multi-tenancy, edge computing, and the native support for the fast-growing modern workloads such as containers and serverless functions. Centaurus helps in creating multiple nodes, managing infrastructure, containerizing the environment, managing the pods, and many more.
Cloud computing is picking up the pace replacing the traditional methods of storing the data, accessing, and running the applications. Cloud migration is the process to shift the existing data, applications, and other business elements from data centers or one cloud to other cloud environments for better scaling. Organizations are shifting their businesses on cloud for more speed and agility. Migration to cloud gives the organization limitless computing resources.
Click2Cloud support enterprises throughout their cloud infrastructure deployment process and empowers them with private cloud offerings, a cloud framework for compute, storage, and network services. To get the benefit of hybrid cloud and Edge computing an enterprise can accelerate the use of OpenStack, Apsara Stack, and Azure Stack services to transform technologies into cloud and deep industry growth to deliver abiding value.
This blog will give you a complete understanding on billing, budget, and cloud cost optimization. Cloud cost management is as important as knowing your bills. It is important to know your cloud spends and which cloud offers you a good service at minimal costs. Click2Cloud also offers you a semi-automated assessment platform “ CloudsIntel” to support you with assessment and migration plan
