As government IT managers turn to public clouds for rapid, on-demand access to computing resources, they still are wary about losing control over how their data is segmented and secured within cloud infrastructures.

To help assuage these concerns, networking vendors are offering a new class of virtual routers that give agencies the ability to move sensitive workloads to public clouds and securely segment their networked applications from other tenants’ networks or even separate their own test and development applications from those in their production network.

Network provider Brocade is offering the Vyatta vRouter for the Amazon Web Services GovCloud, which is designed to meet the stringent security and regulatory requirements of U.S government agencies. The Vyatta vRouter is a secure virtual router, firewall and virtual private networking solution that lets agencies connect AWS GovCloud to another public or private cloud as well as provide a secure bridge to a data center, Brocade officials said. The vRouter also has advanced user-controlled functionality and extends the number of concurrent VPN tunnels offered by AWS.

Virtual routers provide more control for users and agility for cloud service providers in multitenant shared environments, said Kelly Herrell, vice president and general manager of Brocade’s software networking business unit. Cloud vendors are not carving out dedicated physical areas in their infrastructures for each tenant. They typically have racks and racks of servers upon which organizations are intermingled within a shared hardware environment. In a situation such as this, “it is hard to determine where one customers leaves off and another picks up,” Herrell said.

Instead of running on expensive network hardware, virtual routers run on the same server as the application. By putting network functionality inside the server, users can configure virtual networks that segment their infrastructure from other tenants’ infrastructure, giving them the same type of traffic control they had in their data centers, Herrell said. They can also segment their test and development applications from data in their production networks, he said.

The smell of Oso Negro coffee may be the first thing you notice when you walk into the newly reopened Bagels and Brew in the Kootenay Crossing Mall in Castlegar.

Either that, or your eye will be drawn to the outstanding artwork on the walls, the cheerful staff behind the counter, the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner or perhaps even someone interesting in the line-up waiting for take-out.

"I want Bagels and Brew to be the spot where people come to get a great cup of coffee, hang out or take it with them, a fantastic homemade meal, breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or a homemade baked goodie," said new owner Sarah Holliday on Monday, July 29. "We are working on some grab and go lunch items for you to take to work when you grab a coffee in the morning. We definitely have some healthy options, not everything, but it's definitely all homemade."

Holliday has extensive experience in the restaurant industry, with four years at Boston Pizza as a server, supervisor and cook. She also ran the cafeteria at the high school in Nelson for two years.

The restaurant also offers catering services and all of the three full-time and one part-time staff do the cooking and baking.

"We have sandwiches, soups, salads, bagels, wraps and paninis," said Holliday. "We're planning to offer a lot more gluten-free items, too."

Holliday stressed that everything at Bagels and Brew is homemade and that she was looking forward to growing the business in Castlegar.

"I hope it gets huge," she laughed. " I'd like to see the catering pick up and we will definitely be doing a lot more baking."
