How VyOS helps you keep an AWS Outpost secure and connected
Industry-standard site-to-site IPsec and VTI protocols can be used to connect to other AWS regions and other clouds.
Support for BGP allows exchanging routes with AWS and other clouds, either over VPN tunnels or AWS Direct Connect links.
VyOS also supports a variety of VPN protocols for connecting to existing on-premises installations and third-party services, including OpenVPN, WireGuard, and DMVPN.
VyOS supports multiple other features including other dynamic routing protocols, remote access VPN servers, and more, so it can serve as an enterprise router in the cloud easily.
Cloud networking needs
Despite the benefits, we should not forget about cloud-specific networking needs. Cloud applications need to be connected to other clouds and on-premises installations, and cloud routers need to integrate with the cloud to be easy to deploy.
Benefits of AWS Outposts
There may be legal or practical reasons to keep data in a particular country or state. With AWS Outposts, you can choose where your workloads run. You can also easily move your data between cloud regions and Outposts, so it’s easy to keep up with regulatory changes.
One of the most common challenges in migration to the cloud is migrating latency-sensitive applications. With AWS Outposts you can keep latency-sensitive components on premises — indefinitely or until you are ready to migrate.
Local data processing
Large data lakes, such as training data sets for machine learning, can be difficult to migrate to the cloud due to cost, size, or bandwidth constraints. With AWS Outposts you can make on-premises data available to cloud applications and keep it there or migrate it gradually.
VyOS — a unified network OS for all platforms
The goal of VyOS is to be as flexible as possible and cover a wide variety of platforms and use cases. You can deploy it in many other environments apart from AWS EC2 and AWS Outposts and save on personnel training and maintenance by using the same network OS in all roles and places. That includes:
