6WIND vRouter: The Multi-cloud Virtual Border Router for Service Providers

Many companies host their services on different cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and more.

As these services are critical for access to their cloud, Service Providers cannot rely on Internet connectivity.

Companies require a direct connection to their Cloud Service Providers for high bandwidth, reduced latency and improved stability. Multi-cloud Service Providers exist to connect these different cloud services and provide an all-in-one peering solution. Customers must be provisioned with specific filtering rules and routing tables, with allocation of specified bandwidth capacity.

6WIND’s vRouter is designed to give Service Providers a software alternative to hardware routers for Multi-cloud routing use cases.
