Understanding Networks

The ability to create your network is one of the fundamental features of the Platform. This article describes the components of a network.

Each network has three basic components - RegionsGateways, and Tunnels.

Those components enable one or more Groups of your Members to securely access your on-premise and cloud-based resources.

Network Components

  • Region(s)- Physical locations where your Gateway(s) will be deployed.

One Network can have several Regions for lower latency and better performance.
Members connecting to a multi-regional Network will automatically be routed to the closest Region.

  • Private Gateway(s) - Dedicated private servers deployed in your selected Region(s). Every Gateway has its own static IP address and can be connected to others on-premise or cloud resources by Tunnels.

One Region can have several Gateways, which improves the redundancy of your Network and ensures better load-balancing between the Gateways.

  • Tunnel(s) - Site-to-Site securely encrypted connections deployed from your Gateway(s) to your on-premise and cloud-based resources in-order to connect them to your Network.

Tunnels can be used to connect all of your branches to one Network by easily deploying a Tunnel to each one of them. One Gateway can have several Tunnel connections.
