The features that realize the principles

Environments

CloudShare environments are easy to spin up, share, and manage. Create an environment in minutes using one of our pre-configured templates, or create a fully-customized environment using our VM templates or your own.

Networking

Fully-configurable networking capabilities ensure your CloudShare environment is an exact match of your on-prem environment – even the IP and MAC addresses.

Collaboration

With numerous methods for sharing environments, CloudShare makes it easy to collaborate with colleagues, give students the hands-on IT labs they need, and demo your product at its best.

Interactivity

CloudShare’s robust RESTful API and available third-party app integrations give you the ability to create seamless workflows and efficient toolchains.

Environments at the center

The true power of CloudShare is born of the environment paradigm – a single entity that combines computing resources, networking, operating systems, software, and memory state into one easy-to-use and manage entity.

Here’s just some of what makes CloudShare environments so special:

  • Self-service, on-demand provisioning, requiring little or no support from IT
  • Environments that spin up in minutes – not hours, days, or weeks
  • Easy imaging and cloning – ensuring full consistency and making it easy to return to your golden image
  • Reporting, BI analytics, and dashboards to ensure full visibility to resource and environment usage
  • A rich library of best-practice templates – both for full environments and for individual VMs – all fully-customizable and with software licensing included
  • Automation features designed to help you conserve environment resources – configurable environment policies, activity sensing, suspend, and standby
  • Environment isolation and security – employing standards such as encrypted SSL over HTTPS, role and IP-based access control, SSO using SAML 1.x and 2.x, IPsec VPN, API token authentication, and more

Unrivaled networking support

Thanks to CloudShare’s versatile support for networks – whether complex or simple – cloud migration doesn’t need to be a laborious, time-consuming affair. Just set up your network to work on-cloud exactly as it does on-prem, and you are off and running.

Support for complex topology, layer 2 networking, and specific IP and MAC addresses

NAT capabilities and environment isolation prevent configuration drift

Advanced connectivity options including public IP addresses, public internet access, published services, and direct connect

IPsec site-to-site VPN allowing environments to exist in a hybrid on-cloud/on-prem configuration
