To protect its network and its customers' technologies against DDoS attacks, Coolhousing runs a scrubbing centre that will detect any harmful communication within data traffic and filter it off. Coolhousing offers this service newly also to those customers who do not use the company's hosting services.
Denial of Service (DoS attacks) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS attacks) are two of today's most serious threats. While they are relatively simple and inexpensive to organize, efficient protection against them is technically complicated and usually costly as well. (D)DoS attacks may target virtually anyone and their severity and frequency constantly grow.
The protection of the Coolhousing network, facilities connected within it and, newly, any traffic that is directed via the Coolhousing centre is provided by RadWare DefensePro elements, which are designed, by using proactive monitoring or proprietary behavioural analysis to monitor the data flow and filter off any DDoS attacks or automatically propagating malware.
This scrubbing centre's offer to our clients located also outside the company's own network puts high demands on the Coolhousing data centre connectivity, which is being constantly improved. Currently, the data centre on the Vinohradská Street in Prague has its own three independent redundant optical lines to the THP data centre on the Vinohradská Street, Nagano data centre on the U Nákladového Nádraží Street, and CE Colo data centre on the Nad Elektrárnou Street. Furthermore, the Coolhousing network uses a redundant branch to NIX.CZ, direct lines to the German and Dutch DE-CIX and AMS-IX centres (now with enhanced capacity), lines to the Slovak SIX and NIX.SK centres, and transit connectivity from a couple of renowned suppliers.
Thanks to our constant network development, Coolhousing offers now to its customers who will appreciate it dedicated direct optical lines (data circuits) in order to interconnect the technologies located at all of the sites used by the company, i.e. in the THP, Nagano and CE Colo data centres, in the SIX peering centre hosted by the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, and of course, in the company's own data centre.
“The lines will permit high-speed transmission between two sites at a capacity from hundreds of kilobits up to multiples of gigabits per second. All this done safely, reliably, and with minimum response” says Jiří Dvořák, Coolhousing senior sales manager, explaining the major advantages of the dedicated data circuits within the company network. The connections may use the DWDM/DWDM (multiple wavelengths of light) or MPLS/VPLS (protocol-independent data transmission) technologies. “We always rely on technologies from the high-tech manufacturers when building optical lines and L2/L3 circuits. Our solutions are primarily built on the Cisco and Juniper technologies”, says Jiří Dvořák, explaining the technological solution.
