Managed IPsec VPN#
The major cloud providers usually offer the ability to set up IPsec tunnels instead of expensive interconnects.
These endpoints can be managed as backbone components to the network.
IPsec tunnels can be created to match the resilience needs of the network.
For example in a standard 2 datacentre backbone, 2 IPsec tunnels, 1 per datacentre could be created, allowing for datacentre failure.
We will require the configuration details from the cloud provider when the IPsec endpoint is set up in their platform.
Generating this information varies between the providers.
