AÂ gatewayÂ is a network point thatÂ worksÂ 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 end user and cloud. By using cloud gateway business units can use different cloud services like migration, cloud compare, monitoring, billing, automation etc. With Click2Cloudâ€™s cloud brain cloud gateway works efficiently. Fig. 1 shows how cloud gateway is working as the part of cloud brain. To understand how cloud gateway helps business unit to get connected with cloud providers with help of cloud refer fig. 1.
It describes the function of 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/ user with the help of Cloud Brain. Cloud Brain is the product of Click2Cloud. Cloud Brain has many features like Migration, Monitoring, Cloud Intel, Cloud Compare, Chargeback & Audit, Optimization etc.
Figure: Function of Cloud Gateway
By using these features of Cloud Brain user can access different cloud services. For example, if business units or user want to select cloud then cloud brain 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 business unit. For this complete process initially, all clouds will get added and connected with users, this connectivity between the cloud providers and user is taken care by cloud gateway.
Monitoring feature will monitor the cloud computing and cloud migration related process. Next important parameter of cloud brain is migration, different types of cloud migration is possible with cloud brain like Click2Cloud, virtual cloud etc. Cloud gateway is the part of cloud brain. Same for other features like cloud Intel, monitoring, automation, optimization, chargeback & audit, migration, storage, consumption etc.
With cloud gateway, users will be able use cloud services efficiently with the help of cloud brain features. Cloud gateway is the bridge between the cloud providers and business units. This cloud gateway mainly consists of routers, servers, other 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 consists of many cloud computing features which will provide easy way to use cloud services with 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.
