Los Gatos, California-based Pertino is out with what it says is a modern approach to WAN-based virtual private clouds (VPCs).
The Pertino Cloud Network Engine is designed to enable IT and DevOps professionals to build secure, cloud-based VPCs in minutes — without configuration or hardware — that work anywhere with any public cloud provider.
The Pertino CNE is a software-defined network-as-a-service platform that runs on public cloud infrastructures, leveraging the automation and orchestration tools used by leading cloud providers. IT and DevOps pros can instantly build VPCs by deploying a secure cloud network to span multiple users, sites, regions or even cloud providers. Pertino VPCs use host-to-host virtual overlay networks, so customers get a self-contained, end-to-end solution that they can control without cloud provider dependencies.
“WAN-based VPCs create a lot of friction and pain for DevOps teams that need instant, elastic clouds to support their dynamic workloads," said Scott Hankins, Pertino co-founder and CTO. “The core VPN technology that underpins today’s VPC solutions is several generations behind the current state of cloud networking. We pursued a clean-slate approach with the belief that to build a better VPC for networking clouds across the WAN, you need to start with a cloud-based network."
