OSHEAN's Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is a suite of services built off the Beacon 2.0 backbone and delivered in partnership with NaviSite Inc.  OSHEAN and NaviSite have entered into a strategic partnership to bring on-net cloud services to the OSHEAN membership.  NaviSite, Inc., a Time Warner Cable Company, is a leading international provider of enterprise-class, cloud-enabled hosting, managed applications and services. For the Desk as a Service (DaaS) offering, the solution is powered by technology from DeskTone Inc. (Recently acquired by VMware) of Lexington MA.

The benefits of this innovative architecture include:

  • No Hardware to Maintain
  • Secure Access Anywhere – Access from anywhere. Extend the availability of software packages outside traditional business hours.

  • Use your current IP Addresses – Members can utilize existing IP addresses they currently own or lease from OSHEAN.  
  • Firewall Context Included – Each Cumulus environment will include a private firewall instance that is member controlled.  This enables members to maintain their own security policy utilizing their own security standards and procedures.  (Members who wish to utilize their own firewall solution have the ability to do so) If a member is currently a user of OSHEAN’s cloud firewall and/or filtering services, one set of policies protects both local desktops and desktops in the cloud easing management and administration.
