CloudPath AZ uses Microsoft’s well-known Azure Pack which includes Hyper-V hypervisors and Windows Server 2012
CloudPath AZ supports up to 32 processors and one (1) TB of memory on each Virtual Machine. We also offer a new, virtual hard disk format that supports up to 64 TB per virtual disk, allowing you to manage large workloads.
Secure multi tenancy
CloudPath AZ uses the security and multi-tenant isolation capabilities in the latest edition of Windows Server 2012. This keeps VMs isolated when they operate on the same physical host.
CloudPath uses network virtualization and can place a virtual machine on any node, regardless of its IP address (???). This gives you the flexibility to easily access and manage your virtualized network whenever you need to.
CloudPath offers you a variety of high-availability options including: on-demand snapshots, incremental file backup and full VM replication.
CloudPath uses Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012 for its hypervisor-based virtualization solution. The hypervisor is the processor-specific virtualization platform that allows multiple isolated operating systems to share a single hardware platform. Hyper-V supports isolation in terms of partitions.
A partition is a logical unit of isolation, created by the hypervisor, in which operating systems execute. The Microsoft hypervisor has a parent/ root partition called the Management Operating System which runs 64-bit Windows. The virtualization stack runs in the Management Operating System and has direct access to hardware devices. The Management Operating System then creates the child partitions which host the guest operating systems.
Partitions have restricted access to physical processors and do not handle the processor interrupts. Instead, they have a virtual view of the processors and run in a virtual memory address region that is private to each guest partition. The hypervisor handles the interrupts to the processor, and redirects them to the respective partition.
Here is a simplified, high-level overview of the CloudPath Azure Pack environment:
Hyper-V 3.0 Network Virtualization accommodates multiple isolated virtual networks on the same physical network. Network Virtualization uses a software-based abstraction layer that sits on top of the physical network and is based on the concept of virtual subnets. A virtual subnet represents a broadcast boundary that ensures that only VMs on the same virtual subnet can communicate with one another. As such, virtual subnets allow administrators to set up different isolated broadcast domains between VMs.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
No. You are welcome to tailor your virtual DC to your specific needs. The preconfigured packages, however include everything you need to get started right away: compute, memory, storage, a firewall, network IP address, internet traffic allowance, a Windows Server (2012 or 2008) Operating System and technical support.
For example, your CloudPath AZ packages come with a free commercial Windows Server license (this would cost approximately $1,200USD retail, to purchase). Upgrades to the latest version of Windows Server are included at no charge.
CloudPath servers are all provisioned behind a shared commercial firewall. This saves you costs. Each tenant is completely separated from others.
Yes. One static IP address is included free of charge per virtual machine. If you create multiple, smaller sized Virtual Machines from the allocated resources they can share the IP address. Alternatively, additional IP address are available for $5.00 per month.
Additional resources can be requested at any time through your management portal or by contacting our Sales Department at email@example.com.
If you need licenses for other Microsoft applications (such as Microsoft Exchange) or Windows Server licenses for other machines, these are available at rates FAR lower than what you would pay for in the market. Please use contact firstname.lastname@example.org for rates for fees
Assurance of knowing what you will incur. Cheaper in the long run as many providers build in costs of carrying unused resources or over provision resources limiting your ability to scale on demand.
In order to add resources to your subscription you will need to contact our provisioning department. This is done to ensure your costs are never unpredictable and allows our cloud experts an opportunity to discuss your needs – sometimes adding more resources is not the ideal solution. Provisioning of additional resources is usually done within one business day.
Yes. One static IP address is included free of charge per virtual machine package. If you create multiple, smaller sized Virtual Machines from the allocated resources they can share the IP address. Alternatively, additional IP address are available for $5.00 per month.
We are able to offer extremely low monthly subscription fees by ensuring proper capacity planning is in place. To accomplish this we ask for a commitment to ensure we aren’t acquiring hardware that sits idle.
Early termination fees are calculated at the time your written notice of service cancellation is received. The fee is 50% of the contract balance.
Pathway provides you with user documents and an onboarding kit. This should be sufficient for an IT Administrator to install, test and use CloudPath without assistance. The Administration Portal allows easy setup and management of virtual machines, networking components and databases.
