Is the Cloud VPN/SD-WAN just for connecting from TUT to my servers?
No, the Total Uptime Cloud VPN/SD-WAN can be used for many different purposes. Here are the two most common:
- It can be used with the WAF 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 you simply do not want to expose your devices to the internet.
- It can be used on its own to build a connectivity mesh, that is, connections between two or more locations where Total Uptime may or may not be part of the mesh. Some customers use this to ease the burden of connecting multiple office locations or interconnecting a cloud provider or third-party data center to other locations.
