Exoscale is a European cloud provider focusing on simplicity and security. Its goal is to provide simple, scalable, and affordable cloud infrastructure services.
As an alternative to big, powerful but expensive virtual server providers, or hosting servers with limited support possibilities, Exoscale intends to provide an easy-to-use cloud offering and solid support. At the heart of Europe, Exoscale’s servers offer reduced latency and the great protection afforded by Swiss data protection legislation. Realizing the fact that users want to benefit from a cloud server near their home, the Swiss startup has, therefore, changed its strategy to develop local servers and become a European player. For issues of latency, legality, but also trust — it is understood that users prefer to know their data near home.
Being an EU-based company, VyOS is also an open-source network OS based on GNU/Linux that provides a unified management interface for all-functional traditional hardware routers. Designed to assume the role of a central point of secure traffic exchange in the cloud environment, or between the cloud and external resources, VyOS has a powerful routing, VPN, and firewall functionality. It's a well-known all-in-one networking solution for organizations whose values are flexibility and high effectiveness.
Along with bare metal and hypervisors, it runs on cloud platforms that allow using the same OS and connecting your on-premises networks to cloud sites without the limitations and costs of vendor-specific VPN solutions. Additionally, you can build an inexpensive remote access VPN for your distant personnel.
Connect your Exoscale Cloud infrastructure to remote sites using a wide range of supported by VyOS tunneling and encryption protocols: GRE, VXLAN, IPSec, IPIP, SIT. With VyOS you can establish a transparent but secure channel between your on-premise network and cloud, cloud, and Internet using multiple tunneling protocols and strong encryption.
Thanks to multiple Exoscale data centers across Europe, close to the main traffic exchange points and dynamic traffic control with VyOS, it is possible to build multi-homed redundant solutions, which makes all the data strongly available.
Provide secure access for hit-the-road users to private networks in Exoscale via VyOS VPN concentrator by choice of PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN, or WireGuard. Establish the controlled access from the Internet; limit access to sensitive data or valuable resources with powerful firewall: stateful, zone-based, with source and destination NAT support.
Flexible selection of VPN technologies, including DMVPN and modern WireGuard along with advanced dynamic routing support, transform VyOS into a centralized management hub for connecting cloud networking environments and bridging the gap between cloud-based Exoscale and your on-premises infrastructure.
Build your own Virtual Private Cloud relying on privacy-minded IaaS fully compliant to regulations and standards. Combine services like Private Networking, Private Connect, and Dedicated Hypervisors to safely extend your existing on-premises infrastructure to a Hybrid Cloud at a fraction of the cost.
Bring your own license (BYOL): In this scenario, Exoscale provides the pure IaaS according to the Exoscale end-user service agreements (EUSA); an image of the virtual VyOS instance can be provisioned via the Exoscale add-ons portfolio.
With Exoscale, taking care of computing resources, and VyOS, providing connectivity for them, you avoid the issues associated with managing your own hardware, servers, or network devices.
Bring more flexibility with Exoscale's DNS features like Anycast DNS and VyOS to provide transparent access to your data in multiple sites, controlled by automation tools via APIs.
You can automate the deployment with your DevOps tools of choice, or you can deploy the image manually through the Exoscale console. Upgrade it to the latest version of VyOS and move the config to a freshly updated instance. You won’t need to reinstall and configure the appliance from scratch. The deployed VyOS appliance is ready to work with the network, thanks to the automatic configuration from Exoscale Meta-Data service.
Advanced routing capabilities, multi-protocol VPN, and a stateful firewall are but the tip of the iceberg.
