Each private network comes with five VPN connections free of charge. Using your own log-in credentials you will be able to log-on to your private network from any Internet-enabled workstation and access data stored there.

Application scenarios

Web server with central database


This option allows the Unmetered.com customer to connect up to five servers. These can be configured as three web servers with two attached database servers. Databases work on the replication principle, i.e. data is held simultaneously on two servers. This accelerates the transmission of the data and also heightens the level of data security.

In this scenario, the web servers remain externally accessible via the Internet. The database servers are provided with only one Internet connection to protect them from unauthorized access. This arrangement allows the customer to provide data quickly and securely.


Dedicated firewalls protecting your web servers


In this arrangement, a server is used as a dedicated firewall to protect the web servers by filtering incoming traffic and protect the data on the servers. Only the firewall can be reached by outsiders. The web servers are linked to each other and are connected to the firewall via an internal network.


Central storage with NFS


In this scenario, a central storage server, which can only be accessed via the internal network, is used together with the web servers. The web servers access the storage server by means of the NFS or iSCSI protocol. In both cases, this means that data can be accessed from storage just as easily as data stored on the local hard disk. The data is, however, better protected against loss or unauthorized access, since it is hidden from the Internet.

VPN

Five VPN connections are provided by Unmetered.com free of charge with each internal network. This makes it possible to access the internal network and its servers remotely by means of a username and password. Access to the VPN server is provided via an out-of-band connection, accessible even if your server should become unresponsive on the public Internet.
