How to use a VPC/VPN gateway for secure and private on-premises access to cloud resources.

Site-to-site VPN is a communication link used to extend your on-premises network to the cloud. The updated Use a VPC/VPN gateway for secure and private on-premises access to cloud resources solution tutorial captures the steps to create a simulated environment:

The updated Use a VPC/VPN gateway for secure and private on-premises access to cloud resources solution tutorial captures the steps to create a simulated environment:

The tutorial has been enhanced to use the IBM Cloud DNS Services and updated to leverage the IBM Cloud Schematics service for provisioning. DNS is required to access resources like PostgreSQL and IBM Cloud Object Storage through the VPN and virtual private endpoints gateways.

The architecture is captured as Terraform files. A few clicks in IBM Cloud Schematics triggers the creation of the resources. After your testing is complete, click to destroy. Use the simulated on-premises environment to explore VPN connection parameters, verify a workload or test connectivity to cloud services. Later, you can connect your actual on-premises environment to the IBM Cloud.
