IRP for Cloud is the ultimate network performance optimization service specifically designed to address inherent BGP routing deficiencies and eliminate scenarios when traffic is routed via slow or congested paths, taking cloud applications and websites performance to the next level.
The service leverages Noction’s proven Intelligent Routing Platform technology which measures critical network performance metrics such as latency and packet loss for various paths, analyses the collected information and automatically reroutes traffic through the best performing provider.
By sending traffic through the fastest available path, IRP for Cloud maximizes cloud network performance, offering lower packet loss than AWS for 78% of destinations and lower latency for 52% of destinations on average.
Connecting to the service is quite straightforward. You need to run a designated IRP for Cloud satellite VM, which can be found on your cloud provider’s marketplace. (Please note, the VM image is only available in those regions where the IRP for Cloud service is provided.)
The satellite VM image uses an IRP for Cloud satellite VM CloudFormation Template that enables it to request and install a Virtual Interface/Gateway in an existing VPC, enable Route propagation from the IRP for Cloud service, monitor VPC operation and update IRP for Cloud with changes as well as restore to previous configuration in case of incidents.
It is provisioned with:
- security groups with HTTP/HTTPS (and optional SSH) access to open access for the users to review and manage it;
- IAM role with EC2, Direct Connect and Marketplace Metering rights allowing the AMI to automate IRP for Cloud service.
Once deployed, the IRP for Cloud satellite VM runs entirely within your VPC and remains under your full control at all times.
Check out the setup guide for more details.
IRP for Cloud satellite VM adds two /1 routes pointing to the IRP for Cloud Virtual Interface that are preferred when compared to the /0 default route. The more specific routes present in the routing table override the IRP for Cloud /1 routes and allow you to segment what destination network segments use what gateway.
A series of specific cloud provider routes are added in order to ensure that your VPC communication with your cloud provider resources are still routed through your default gateway.
– a Virtual Interface usage charge applied by your cloud provider
– an IRP for Cloud satellite VM usage charge that consists of
a) actual elastic instance charge applied by your cloud provider based on instance size and operating system and
b) instance usage charge applied through your cloud provider metering service.
That’s it. There’s no other administrative overhead for this.
How are we paid? The cloud provider charges you and we are then credited for your reported instance usage charge.
