Virtual Networking

With virtual networking Wingu enables customers to deploy networks, subnets, routers, load balancers, security groups and floating IP addresses. Your networks can be as simple or as complex as you need them to be.

Routers connect private cloud networks to the internet, and allow floating (public) IP addresses to be assigned to virtual servers, making them accessible from the internet. Networks are a collection of subnets, so a network called "cloud" can have multiple subnets. In these subnets, you can set options such as DNS, DHCP and static host routes.

Security groups enable layer 4 firewalling to be applied to each individual virtual server, separating hosts from each other (micro segmentation) and the internet. Load balancers with a number of load balancing algorithms (round robin, least number of connections etc.) can be created as pools of virtual servers, with a virtual IP address assigned to the pool. Pool servers can also be monitored at the port level for system availability using a number of methods (HTTPS, Ping etc.).
