Flexible Internet Access
With flexible Internet access, VMs can be activated for both inbound and outbound data traffic to the Internet.
The flexible Internet access is routed directly to your vShield without using an upstream reverse proxy solution.
The virtual vShield Edge firewall on the perimeter of the virtual data center enables you to route IP traffic to various VMs and to implement various expanded network services. This comprises the independent management of the firewall approvals, the NAT configuration, the configuration of the load balancing for the external vDC network of multiple customer VMs, and additional functions.
The flexible Internet access can be booked as a volume-based or a bandwidth-based model.
Within the vShield Edge it is possible to configure Site-2-Site-VPNs in self-service using the flexible Internet access.
