The best way to plan and architect Internet environments is to use a large, blank whiteboard to outline, correct and improve the complete infrastructure design by hand using a pen.
Most Cloud Computing IaaS providers require that you convert these drawings into text tables of virtual servers and storage, before linking them – a cumbersome and error prone process. And with each subsequent change, you’re-establish have to pick the right row in the table and re-establish network connections, IPs and more, some providers make you replace the entire infrastructure.
ProfitBricks offers a 'virtual whiteboard' – the Data Center Designer (DCD) which does so much more than a whiteboard. Design your ProfitBricks Virtual Cloud Computing Data Center with servers, storage, load balancers, firewalls and associated networking using the DCD. Once complete, simply activate the data center design with a mouse-click. It’s that easy – without any complicated forms and tables.
