Cloud Application Sharing Features

Do you do business with other Cloud Connexa customers? Do you want to use Cloud Connexa to create an extranet between your company’s services and your business partners, suppliers, and distributors? If you both use Cloud Connexa, you can share private apps with one another in just a few easy steps for a streamlined user experience. The same goes for customers with multiple Wide-Area Private Clouds (WPCs); sharing common apps between these WPC networks is a breeze.

What Is CloudConnexa® Application Sharing?

We’re pleased to share that the inaugural version of Cloud Connexa AppHub is now available in beta. This feature allows Cloud Connexa customers to share Applications, formerly referred to as Services, with each other. To take advantage of the improved user experience, simply follow a few simple steps in the Portal (as outlined below), and you’re set.

Why Does CloudConnexa® App Sharing Matter?

At OpenVPN, we’re continually improving and enhancing our products, and responding to customer feedback is integral to that process. That’s why we’re proud to provide innovative solutions, like app sharing, that meet you right where you are with your business’s unique needs. 

The following use cases inspired the Cloud Connexa app sharing feature:

  • Creating an extranet between companies doing business together. For example, an auto parts manufacturer can provide access to its inventory application to an auto parts distributor with whom it does business. 
  • Allowing companies to share secure internal services with temporary contractors. The contractors continue to connect to the contracting company’s WPC but get access to select applications from their customer’s WPC.
  • Enabling organizations with multiple cloud WPCs to share common services. For example, if one WPC is dedicated to IoT and another is used for IT staff remote access, the Administrator of the IoT WPC can share access to its IoT management application with the WPC dedicated for use by IT staff.
