Multicloud Networking / VPN

Is Multicloud Networking just for connecting from TUT to my servers?

No, Multicloud Networking can be used for many different purposes. Here are the two most common: It can be used with the WAAP or Load Balancer to allow you to send traffic to devices using private, non-routable RFC1918 address space. Often this is desired if you are short on public IPv4 address space, or if […]

Do you provide any utilization info for Multicloud Networking?

Yes, when you log into the management panel, you can go to Networking > Multicloud Networking to see bandwidth graphs for your VPN uplinks. Generally one graph is shown per uplink, so if you have a primary and a secondary between our platform and your site, cloud provider or data center, you would see one […]

Do you support BGP with Multicloud Networking?

Yes, we fully support BGP with Multicloud Networking. In fact, this is our preferred implementation for more than one VPN IPSEC tunnel in order to provide very high levels of reliability. We can also configure multiple tunnels to different/diverse POPs on the Total Uptime platform to increase availability in the event of a network event […]

Do you support VPN to AWS, Azure or Google Compute?

Yes, we support building IPSEC VPN tunnels to all of the major cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, Google Compute, Alibaba, Rackspace, IBM Softlayer, your on-prem location and many, many more. Most providers support redundant tunnels which we can configure to multiple POPs on our platform and also enable BGP for dynamic routing to ensure […]

How redundant and reliable is Multicloud Networking?

Multicloud Networking can be extremely reliable. It all depends on configuration. A single tunnel between our networks is the least desirable, but multiple tunnels between your location and at least two POPs on the Total Uptime platform increases reliability significantly. Add BGP for dynamic routing and you can achieve 99.999% reliability. Many providers, such as […]

Creating an Active-Active VPN Tunnel with BGP in Azure

In this article we will outline the steps required to create an active-active VPN tunnel with BGP dynamic routing between Microsoft Azure and the Total Uptime Cloud Platform. By default, Total Uptime requires your devices (servers) to have internet-routable IPv4 or IPv6 addresses so we can direct traffic to them. By creating VPN tunnels between […]
