Carpathia Hosting Selects Vyatta On-Demand Networking to Keep Cloud Customers Secure

Vyatta Network OS Addresses the Complex Security Needs of Carpathia's Federal Government and Enterprise Cloud Customers

BELMONT, CA--(Marketwire - February 14, 2011) - Vyatta, the leader in software-based networking for physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures, announced today that Carpathia Hosting, a leading provider of complex managed hosting services for government agencies and enterprises, has selected the Vyatta Network OS to provide on-demand cloud security to customers utilizing Carpathia's InstantOn™ cloud platform.

Carpathia provides secure, reliable and compliant IT infrastructure and management for some of the world's most demanding enterprises and federal agencies.

  • Datacenter to Cloud Security -- Enabling secure communication and migration of data from remote enterprise to hosted cloud
