Deployment Model

☁️ Deploying in your Cloud Account

To get started you will need to pick your cloud provider from the list below and follow the install guidelines.


On-Premise Network Connectivity

Ascend provides support for two network connectivity options that enable the cloud-based platform to connect to private/internal data sources (e.g. on-premise). All options are highly configurable, production-quality, and are based on network security best practices.


Private Network Connectivity

Customers can bring their own network configuration for more complex scenarios (VPC Peering, VPN tunnels, etc.).

If you're planning on connecting Ascend to private data stores inside private networks, see the instructions below to determine whether your environment will require you to Bring Your Own Network.

Bring Your Own Network

Bring Your Own Network is a feature used to support Private Network Peering with your Ascend environment to access private data stores. These private data stores may be in other private networks, in the cloud, or in on-prem networks accessed by way of a high-bandwidth datacenter-to-datacenter connection.

Do I need BYON?
Bring Your Own Network is required for all private cloud networking setups. Check the lists below to see if your setup requires BYON.
