Virtualization and Secure File Transfers in the Cloud

The buzz around cloud computing and virtualization is exciting. Virtualization is not a new concept as this is a progression from distributed computing. What creates the excitement is that virtualization has gained momentum with a few key players making it easy to manage virtual servers via a console or hypervisor.

Why virtualize secure file transfers? The file management realm grew-up with the notion that nothing is secure unless it can be physically segregated in a locked room. This is not reality anymore. "Bare Metal" or "Domain 0" virtual servers are just as secure as physical boxes, but they need to be hardened at the operating system level in the same way as a physical server.

"Virtualization doesn't fit the traditional mold of dedicated servers to handle a corporation's encryption of sensitive data, secure data transfers, or data translation functions," says Bob Luebbe, GoAnywhere Chief Architect. "There were many variables to consider, but we were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to implement a full VMware environment. The virtual servers were easy to manage and move among hosts."

GoAnywhere's managed file transfer solution is tested and certified for virtualized and cloud environments. As of today, it is the only VMware Ready software-based secure managed file transfer solution available. GoAnywhere Gateway is the VMware Ready reverse proxy gateway for the DMZ that integrates with GoAnywhere Services.
