CloudConnexa Network

What is it?

A Network represents a customer site (on-premises or IaaS) and is defined by:

  1. IP address ranges subnets of private Networks at the site.

  2. A Public or Private domain defined by a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) and protocol(s) and/or port(s) used to connect a single server or Application within an IaaS provider or at the site.

  3. Routing of exiting Internet traffic (i.e. CloudConnexa Internet Access).

  4. Whether the Network is an exit point for WPC Internet traffic (i.e. Adding an Internet Gateway).

  5. One or more Connector(s) that is used to connect to a CloudConnexa VPN Region in order to make the Network a part of the Customer’s WPC.

Examples of a Network could be the private Network in HQ and Branch locations or Virtual Private Cloud Networks in an IaaS provider’s cloud.

Who should use this?

An Administrator will configure a Network if that Network is to be part of the WPC in order to provide Site-to-Site or Point-to-Site access (Remote Access).

Why should I use this?

Defining a Network allows for the configuration of a Connector, which, on connection to CloudConnexa becomes part of the WPC. More than one Connector can be used to connect the private Network to the WPC. Multiple Connectors allow for redundancy and prevent a single point of failure. Connectors for the same Network can connect to different Regions or the same Region.
