OpenVPN, Inc. Achieves Amazon Linux 2 Ready Designation

UPDATE: Access Server 2.14 and later no longer support Amazon Linux 2

PLEASANTON, Calif. — April 21, 2020 — A leading VPN provider, OpenVPN Inc., announced today that it has achieved the Amazon Linux 2 Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program. This designation recognizes that OpenVPN Access Server has been validated to run on and support Amazon Linux 2.

Achieving the Amazon Linux 2 Ready designation differentiates OpenVPN Inc. as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with an available product that runs on Amazon Linux 2 and is fully supported for AWS customers. OpenVPN Access Server now runs on Amazon Linux 2 which is tightly integrated with AWS services and optimized to run on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. AWS Service Ready Partners have demonstrated success building products integrated with AWS services, helping AWS customers evaluate and use their technology productively, at scale, and at varying levels of complexity.

“We are excited to share that OpenVPN has achieved AWS Service Ready status,” said Francis Dinha, CEO of OpenVPN. “And we are proud to be able to offer our uniquely powerful security solution to even more AWS customers on a platform that provides such innovation and service.”

To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Service Ready Program to help customers identify products integrated with AWS services and spend less time evaluating new tools, and more time scaling their use of products that are integrated or run on select AWS Services.
