Frequently Asked Questions
What you need to know
Why does my customer need a Cloud Server?
The Cloud Nation platform is built on a Windows Server terminal services model using Citrix XenApp. Every customer requires at least one (1) server for desktop connections. Each server is dedicated and is not shared with any other customer in the Cloud Nation infrastructure. This ensures security and isolation from other users.
How is Cloud Server secured?
Every Cloud Server (and customer) has their own subnet and IP range. Although Cloud Nation supports a multi-tenant platform, no customer can hack, break in, or view another customer's information. Each Cloud Server is within its own private network. In addition, Amazon's AWS platform is hardened against all types of internet and hacking threats.
How do I manage my customer’s Cloud Server?
Managing a Cloud Nation server is identical to remote management of an on-premise Windows Server. The platform and management are exactly the same processes as you provide today. You will use the RDP connection to the server, manage the machine’s resources, and provide your customers the same support you provide today.
How are Cloud Servers different from on-premise servers?
Cloud Servers have Cloud Nation specific software and settings that allow them to connect easily with the Cloud Nation Command and Control platform. Our Cloud Servers are specifically designed to operate without customer-specific Domain Controllers or Terminal Servers, connect immediately with our Citrix and Microsoft cloud, and offer clean operation for mobile user profiles.
Do I get an anti-virus software?
Yes. Anti-virus software is optional in our Cloud Server pricing.
Do we need a domain controller?
No. Cloud Nation servers are provisioned and joined to a global active directory system that keeps all customers and users organized. Our control panel provides simple access to active directory GPOs so you do not have to remember OU structures and details from customer to customer. This saves time and money.
Why does Cloud Nation use Amazon AWS and EC2 servers?
Cloud Nation selected Amazon AWS as a technology partner to host all of our server, desktop, and storage technologies. Amazon's uptime SLA is 99.95% across global high-speed data centers. No one provides a more secure, solid, and cost-effective platform than Amazon AWS.
How fast will my applications run?
Your applications will run faster than a local PC (unless you have a powerful PC on your desk) because all the processing takes place on our high-performance servers rather than on local hardware.
Can I print to the printers in my office?
Yes, if the printer is already set up on your PC then it will automatically appear in your desktop. Shared printers can also be set up to be accessible from the desktop session of anyone within your organization.
