VPN Gateway

VPN Gateway is an Internet-based service that establishes a connection between a VPC and your on-premise data center.

VPN Gateway is used to transmit encrypted traffic between Alibaba Cloud VPCs and enterprise data centers, enterprise office networks, or Internet platforms over the Internet. You can use this service to establish reliable and secure connections for data transmission. According to China’s regulations and laws, Alibaba Cloud VPN Gateway cannot be used as an Internet access service.

Benefits

Security
Supports Internet Key Exchange (IKE), IPsec, and SSL to guarantee the security and reliability of data transmission.
High availability
Adopts hot-standby architecture to achieve a failover of less than a few seconds, session continuity, and zero service downtime.
Cost-effectiveness
Provides secure internet-based connections to implement hybrid cloud computing, which is more cost-effective than leased lines.
Ease of use
VPN Gateway is a ready-to-use service that supports dynamic configuration for quick deployment.

Customer Scenarios

  • Secure Hybrid Cloud Compute Architecture
Secure Hybrid Cloud Compute Architecture

Secure hybrid cloud compute architecture

Secure data transmission between on-premises and the cloud

In this scenario, the business system contains both on-premise data centers and cloud data centers. Business modules are created based on Alibaba Cloud VPCs to build a completely isolated cloud compute network. On-premise data centers and cloud data centers exchange business data over the Internet.

Benefits

  • Hybrid cloud compute architecture

    Uses software-defined networks. This allows you to customize and manage your network. Any changes that you have made to VPN Gateway will take effect in real time.

  • Secure data transmission

    Communications between isolated VPCs are IPsec-encrypted, to secure your data on the Internet and prevent exposure.

  • Cost-effectiveness

    VPN gateways are used to interconnect on-premise data centers and the cloud to reduce costs.
