Elastic Web-Scale Computing
ITIQ enables you to increase or decrease capacity within minutes, not hours or days. You can commission one, hundreds or even thousands of server instances simultaneously. Of course, because this is all controlled with web service APIs, your application can automatically scale itself up and down depending on its needs.
You have complete control of your instances. You have root access to each one, and you can interact with them as you would any machine. You can stop your instance while retaining the data on your boot partition and then subsequently restart the same instance using web service APIs. Instances can be rebooted remotely using web service APIs. You also have access to console output of your instances.
Flexible Cloud Hosting Services
You have the choice of multiple instance types, operating systems, and software packages. ITIQ allows you to select a configuration of memory, CPU, instance storage, and the boot partition size that is optimal for your choice of operating system and application. For example, your choice of operating systems includes numerous Linux distributions, and Microsoft Windows Server.
ITIQ offers a highly reliable environment where replacement instances can be rapidly and predictably commissioned. The service runs within ITIQ’s proven network infrastructure and data centers.
ITIQ works in conjunction with VPC to provide security and robust networking functionality for your compute resources.
- Your compute instances are located in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) with an IP range that you specify. You decide which instances are exposed to the Internet and which remain private.
- Security Groups and networks ACLs allow you to control inbound and outbound network access to and from your instances.
- You can connect your existing IT infrastructure to resources in your VPC using industry-standard encrypted IPsec VPN connections.
- For additional isolation, you can provision your resources on Dedicated Hosts or as Dedicated Instances. Both allow you to use instances in a VPC on hardware dedicated to a single customer.
If you do not have a default VPC you must create a VPC and launch instances into that VPC to leverage advanced networking features such as private subnets, outbound security group filtering, network ACLs, Dedicated Instances, and VPN connections.
