Connecting Multiple VPCs with Astaro Security Gateway
To achieve a higher level of availability and redundancy, Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers can deploy their applications and services across multiple regions. While it is simple for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances to communicate with each other across regions over the Internet, enabling cross-region communication within a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) environment requires additional configuration. While AWS current does not provide an end-to-end, cross-region VPC connectivity solution, customers can achieve this on their own with third-party virtual private network (VPN) solutions. This whitepaper describes how customers can leverage the Astaro Security Gateway Amazon Machine Image (AMI) to establish cross-region VPC connections between EC2 instances in one region and a VPC virtual private gateway (VGW) in another region.
