Depending on your business needs, you can create cross regional network in different ways. For a small hub and spoke type network, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection will be sufficient. But when your network grows beyond the borders, you need to connect different tenants with a low-latency, high-speed network with a systematic and centralized network management platform.
Alibaba Cloud offers an end-to-end cross regional network solutions for global enterprises in different sizes. And in this article, we will introduce how to create cross regional network with Alibaba Cloud CEN.
You can follow the following steps to create two VPCs in different regions and connect them with CEN.
Managein front of instance name and add another network. Under
Regions, select the second region.
Then you can check the routes automatically generated for the connectivity between the two VPCs under the
For details and how to connect two VPCs in the same Region but different zones, please go to Connecting Regions with Alibaba Cloud Enterprise Network.
In reality, it’s highly possible that several DL segments instead of one DL connect two regions, given the complexity of cross-region network design. In the end, building such global enterprise network could take several months instead of two weeks.
Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) is an enterprise class network on Alibaba Cloud that enables organizations to connect their VPCs and on premise networks across regions within a couple of minutes.
A bandwidth package is required only for cross-regional communication. Same region communication is free of charge and does not require a bandwidth package.
This article will demonstrate a file sharing service solution for file sharing cross region, between on-premise IT environment and public cloud.
For demonstrating the cross-region and hybrid-cloud file sharing scenario, we will build following topology which consists an online CSG file gateway in China side, an on-premises CSG file gateway in overseas side, and an OSS bucket to be the backend storage of both file gateways. For OSS bucket, we choose Hong Kong region which is geographically closest to both China and our data center in Taiwan.
By using Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN), you can build private network communication channels between VPCs or between VPCs and on-premises data centers. CEN uses automatic route distribution and learning, which can improve the network convergence and the quality and security of cross-network communication, and achieve the interconnection of all network resources.
This topic describes how to configure a cross-region connection bandwidth. To connect networks in different regions, you must configure a cross-region connection bandwidth after purchasing a bandwidth package.
The Interconnecting VPC using Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) course is designed to provide you with the fundamental knowledge to plan, configure and administer VPC connections in Enterprise enviroment. In this course we will discuss deployment best practices and use cases of Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN).
Alibaba Cloud CEN is a service that allows you to create a global network for rapidly building a distributed business system with a hybrid cloud computing solution. Alibaba Cloud CEN enables you to build a secure, private, and enterprise-class interconnected network between VPCs in different regions and your local data centers.
