business challenge
  • Data processing and analysis services. 
  • A sandbox for testing new solutions. 
  • A reliable high-performing IT infrastructure.  
  • Management via a single interface linked to the customer’s local infrastructure.  
Solution

AWS Cloud Services became the platform of choice for these tasks.

Implementation: Linxdatacenter provided Okko with a QinQ L2 channel between the Linxdatacenter site in Moscow and the FR5 data center in Frankfurt. Okko connected to the AWS platform over the channel provided using Private and Public Virtual connections. The use of a dedicated channel ensured minimal network latency and stable operation with AWS services. Reliable, uninterrupted connectivity was ensured by a backup connection through another provider.

results
  • AWS provided solutions for Okko’s key IT tasks:
  • cloud computing (EC2),
  • private cloud (VPC),
  • storage (S3),
  • analytics (Lambda, Athena),
  • DNS (Route53),
  • content preparation and protection (Elemental MediaPackage),
  • and content distribution (CloudFront, testing).​

business challenge

The customer faced a technical issue with a persistent BGP session flag with Linxdatacenter hardware. We examined the problem and found out that one of customer’s hosts was under a DDoS attack.

Because of the distributed nature of the attack, traffic couldn’t be filtered effectively, and disconnecting the host from the external network wasn’t an option. The attack stopped after changes in the server configuration, but resumed the day after. A 5.5 Gbps attack overloaded the junctions with internet providers, affecting other Linx Cloud users. To mitigate the effects of the attack, we employed a dedicated DDoS protection service.

Solution

To ensure the continuous availability of resources hosted in Linx Cloud, we rerouted all the customer’s traffic through StormWall Anti-DDoS system. The attack was stopped within half an hour. To prevent future cyberattacks, we organized all connections to the customer’s resources through the StormWall network.
