BCS-4000 Delivers advanced firewall, VPN, and routing functionality
With pfSense software, the BCS-4000 delivers advanced firewall, VPN, and routing functionality in your cloud-based infrastructure with features, including intrusion detection and prevention, load balancing, traffic shaping, GeoIP blocking, dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 support, DHCP and DNS server, Domain Name blacklisting, multiple VPN tunnels using IPsec and OpenVPN, web content filtering, and more.
This scenario does not require any intervention in case the server fails. The BCS 4000 is a part of the network with a matching copy of server as what is installed on Server. Clients access files through permissions set by the server that reside on the NAS or SAN
This would be built out in essence like a backup unit but being updated through replication, have DHCP and DNS as well. Essentially a mirrored box.
This scenario would also allow the BCS4000 to have a storage partition configured for local backup and should be plugged into a separate building.
In this scenario the BSC 4000 is acting as a mirrored server on the network as well as NAS that the clients will use. No client working files will reside on the main server.
The BCS4000 will also have a partition in it that will contain the local backup files. Acronis is still recommended for the offsite. This scenario also does not require any down time as the server will have DHCP and DNS.
In this scenario the main server is running a copy of server 2016/XX and a VM with server on it. The VM is the main server used by the company. Everything is on this server, files, active directory, etc.
When backed up locally, the VM image will be backed up to the BCS400 to the backup partition. When the main server fails, the BSC4000 will spin up the latest virtual image and business will continue.
This takes more time than the previous two scenarios and may require playing around with the image to get it spin up. The Networking will also have to be configured on the virtual switch on the BSC4000 but that can be done in advance cutting down on spin up time.
This scenario is designed for a small company with no server but requires the same reliability of what the big companies have. This setup will not give you really fast up time but will make sure all your data is in tact.
This set up will be backed up with Acronis to the cloud and a local backup program like cloudberry to the backup part of the BCS4000
The NAS can be the shared space for files if using a computer is not wanted to house working files
This scenario could also house a virtual server, use the NAS for the onsite data, and the backup drives for the onsite backup
This scenario includes a PFSense firewall incorporated into the Virtual box component on the operating system allowing you to have an all in one Swiss Army knife, small to medium sized business complete network solution.
This gives you a top shelf firewall with segregation of VLAN capabilities as well as NAS and VM options for daily operations and disaster recovery all in one solution.
