Cloud gateways are secure routing and flow control points within cloud networks, between cloud networks and the internet, or between cloud networks and on-premises networks. They ensure reliable management, greater control and transparency over cloud, hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments. Centralized connectivity as a core feature of VPN gateway technology provides a unified, timely and accurate access to enterprise services. Acting as an interconnection point, the cloud gateway simplifies the configuration required to manage clients within network infrastructure.

Cloud Gateway Environment

VyOS can be deployed inside a cloud environment as a typical virtual instance from a cloud marketplace or as a ready-to-deploy image (depending on the provider). This is a quick and painless process that allows deploying an operational router in no time.
As a multifunctional router, VyOS can act as a NAT gateway, providing simple access to instances on the cloud, or open access to services operating within the cloud. Firewall functionality is used to protect services or limit access between subnetworks and as an encrypted connection terminator, to unite different parts of infrastructure into a single environment.

VyOS gives you the on-premises network management experience on the cloud.
