LONDON, UK – July, 2014 – EuroCloud UK today awarded CohesiveFT’s cloud networking product, VNS3, the Best Offering in IaaS/ PaaS. The judges at the 2014 UK Awards selected VNS3 for its distinctive features and market appeal. The judges determined VNS3 has potential for high market acceptance and characteristics such as connectivity and interoperability, and conformity with data security, privacy and compliance requirements. CohesiveFT and the other category winners will advance to Europe as Team #Cloud14GB for the European Grand Final on 30 September 2014.
About the Product:
CohesiveFT’s flagship product, VNS3, is a software-only virtual network device. VNS3 can be delivered as part of the application deployment in any virtualized infrastructures, including most public, private and hybrid clouds.
VNS3 is different from other networking products because it creates a customer-controlled network on top of underlying cloud networks. This “overlay network” opens up cloud computing for even more possibilities, including ways to connect and secure data centers and businesses not allowed in public cloud networks. VNS3 creates a network platform that gives users a new ability to do networking at the IaaS level with the customization to fit any specific use cases.
Other cloud network routing and security appliances are typically hardware or virtual appliances that do not allow customers access or customization. In the past customers who wanted to run additional services had to use additional VMs. Now with VNS3 version 3.5, customers can now build Docker container systems into VNS3 Manager VM and manage network functions from within the network. Customers save runtime costs of additional VMs and simplify network administration.
In the last year alone, CohesiveFT and VNS3 won the 2014 Cloud World Series Best Security Solution Award, 2014 DCS Awards for Datacentre ICT Networking Product of the Year, the 7th Global Security Challenge Summit pitch competition, were named Runners Up in the Storage, Virtualization, Cloud (SVC) Awards, won the 2013 International Datacenter & Cloud Awards, were named runners up in the 2013 Data Centre Solutions (DCS) Awards, and listed in the 2013 Top 100 Cloud Service Providers from Talkin’ Cloud.
