The Open Telekom Cloud Virtual Private Network (VPN) Solution establishes an encrypted communication tunnel between a user customer location or Data Center and a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). With a VPN, you can securely connect to a VPC and access service resources in it.
By default, ECSs in a VPC cannot communicate with your data center or private network. To enable communication between them, it is recommended to use a VPN, which consists of a VPN gateway and one or more VPN connections. A VPN gateway provides an Internet access for a VPC and works together with the remote gateway in the local data center. A VPN connection uses IPsec encryption technology to connect the VPN gateway and the remote gateway to enable communication between the local data center and the VPC. The VPN connection allows you to quickly build secure hybrid cloud environments.
