Customer LAN (CLAN) Network

Primary path for customer access to the systems the customer uses, such as Vantage and supporting services. CLAN is typically an extension of the customer network.

Customer LAN (CLAN) Network
Connection types 10/25-Gbps SFP28 ports
Connections per site

10 Gbps – 1 (2 HA) to 20 (40 HA)

40 Gbps – 1 (2 HA) to 6 (12 HA)

100 Gbps – 1 (2 HA) to 2 (4 HA)

Redundancy Active / Active

Control Plane Network

Required to manage and support the cloud environment.

Control Plane Network
Connection types 2 x 1 Gb
VPNs per site 2 Active
Minimum VPN bandwidth per VPN 1 Gbps
Maximum latency to Internet 15 msec
Private transit network IP addresses per site 4
Public IP addresses per site 2
Public IP addresses termination point IC firewalls
Redundancy

Active / Active – Physical connections

2 Active – VPNs

Out-of-Band Network

Required for the IntelliCloud team to reach the cloud infrastructure if the primary path is not available. This path should be independent from the CLAN and Control Plane networks.

Out-of-Band Network
Connection types 1000 Base-T SFP Copper
Connections per site 1
Minimum bandwidth 100 Mbps
Maximum latency to Internet 15 msec
Diverse path requirement Diverse compared to Control Plane / OOB
Private transit network IP addresses per site 2
Public IP addresses per site 1
Public IP addresses termination point OOB router
Redundancy

Active / Active – Physical connections

2 Active – VPNs

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Support

The LDAP mechanism supports directory authentication and authorization of users defined in an LDAP-compliant directory. You can configure Vantage to authenticate database users to their LDAP/AD systems, which requires opening ports to facilitate the connection.

Domain Name System (DNS) Servers

The DNS host and domain names for the directory server appear on each Vantage node. IntelliCloud provides a list of IP addresses for the services, and customers can add them in their DNS. If you do not consistently define the directory server throughout the DNS, LDAP user authentication fails.
