TCPWave Engineering team has designed, developed and has performed
extensive testing to simplify the challenges that are faced in SMBs
and large enterprises when it comes to migrating physical servers
from your data centers to a cloud provider such as Amazon Web
Services. The design accounts for security, scalability,
availability, configuration assurance, seamless auditing, reporting
of various key performance metrics derived from the cloud provider
into your existing dashboards.
provides pre-built DNS cloud images for various clouds like Amazon
Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud etc. These images can
be launched on demand from the TCPWave DDI interface whenever
required. Thus, it becomes easy to scale up or scale down the DNS
instances in the cloud in accordance with the DNS query traffic.
This kind of instantaneous spinning up DNS instances as needed
across multiple clouds helps absorb even massive IoT based DDoS
Manage Route 53
The TCPWave IPAM allows you to manage, monitor and audit the
Route 53 Amazon DNS service. You can create hundreds of changes
from the TCPWave IPAM and see them getting reflected into Route 53
in seconds. Each change in Route 53 is associated to an Audit Trail
in the TCPWave IPAM. Also the TCPWave IPAM detects and alerts any
unauthorized changes to your Route 53 service that is hosting your
mission critical zones.
Security with AWS
The TCPWave IPAM uses the best possible security methods to
ensure that the communication with the AWS Route 53 service and the
TCPWave management module uses the strongest level of encryption.
Communication takes places using the REST API methods. These
methods are used in modern Java that is the core technology used in
the TCPWave product line. Similar to the Amazon Route 53 REST API,
the TCPWave IPAM uses a custom HTTP scheme based on a
keyed-HMAC (Hash Message Authentication Code) for authentication.
The TCPWave IPAM allows you to build multiple Cloud instances
in AWS. All you need to provide the TCPWave IPAM is an AMI number,
the REST API authentication keys to AWS and you are done ! The
TCPWave IPAM takes care of building the instances based on the
policy template. You can mass deploy hundreds of instances into AWS
with a simple click of a mouse. Each change is associated with an
audit history. You can deploy hundreds of Wintel and Linux servers
and save on operational overheads by leveraging the embedded cloud
automation features. Welcome to the world of automation !
The TCPWave IPAM allows you to define your own DNS servers in the
AWS VPC and it also allows you to manage Route 53. You can
dynamically provision multiple DNS virtual instances to mitigate a
DNS DDOS attack. This action can be automated wherein the instances
are provisioned and the resiliency and robustness of your DNS
infrastructure keeps scaling up based on the DDOS attack volume.
When the DDOS attack is gone, the TCPWave IPAM takes a cautious
anticipatory scale down logic to bring down the number of DNS
virtual appliances in the mix. Contact us to learn
