Cloud VPN / SD-WAN

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 […]

Do you provide any utilization info for Cloud VPN/SD-WAN?

Yes, when you log into the management panel, you can go to Networking > Cloud VPN 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 over VPN / SD-WAN?

Yes, we fully support BGP over the Cloud VPN or SD-WAN. In fact, this is our preferred implementation for more than one 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 […]

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 this Cloud VPN?

The Cloud VPN and SD-WAN service 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. […]

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 […]
