Wanos + Cloud VPS
« on: February 24, 2015, 02:45:19 PM »
Hello,

I am interested in the deployment example to operate an WISP.
The idea is to optimise the limited and expensive Internet speed from the local ISP, transport the compressed internet to a European cheaper internet connection. Here is the diagram:

Users -> Cashing System -> Wanos (1) --> Router(A) to ISP -[limited internet speed 2Mpbs]--> (-Internet-) --> VPS(B) with Wanos (2) --[100Mbps internet speed]--> Normal internet in Europe

We succeeded in setting up a Wanos (1) on a VirtualBox on a Mint linux machine with 2 physical ethernet ports. wWe uploaded the .ova 2.01 version file.

Now how can we run the Wanos (2) occurrence on a VPS or a physical server with only 1 ethernet interface ?
What is the configuration needed to have the Wanos (2) run?
Do we need to setup a VPN from the Router(A) to the VPS(B) before giving the traffic to the Wanos(2) that will "decompress" then send the traffic to the "normal higher speed internet" .
We could think to serve Wanos as a service for others.
Do you know any who started Wanos SaaS and operational?

Hi,

1) Why run Wanos(1) on virtualbox on mint linux and not run Wanos directly from the USB/Raw disk image?

2) Wanos(2) is possible with an external firewall VPN. Two Ethernet ports are required. One Ethernet option is available via Plus support. We are also considering adding 'Tunnel' mode in the GUI for this type of configuration (If users want it)

3) Yes, there are private cloud providers offering 'WAN Optimization as a Service' using Wanos. We are looking for more partners to offer this service. Pricing is very good.

note: I'll split this question off into a separate thread

1/ To have a PC for other application if needed.
2/ Good news. So by taking the Wanos plus support for 1Mbps, you could support in configuring a VPS in a Europe ? what is needed from my side as a VPS minimal configuration: VPS or physical server? 1 or 2 public IP ? do we preload for you just ubuntu and you do the rest
3/ where could i find the list of partners that offer today 'Wan Optimization as a Service' using Wanos?

1) Ok
2) No, based on your topology you would need 2 x 2 Mbps. At a minimum one server running ESXi, one virtual fw would be required and one Wanos VM. Number of public IPs would probably be two, but depends if the firewall/router can route on the same interface on which the L3 VPN terminates.
3) Private cloud. Details emailed.
