VPN gateways

VPN gateways provide secure connectivity between multiple sites, such as on-premises data centers, Google Cloud Virtual Private Clouds, and Google Cloud VMware Engine private cloud. Traffic is encrypted because the VPN connections traverse the internet. Each VPN gateway can support multiple connections. When you create multiple connections to the same VPN gateway, all VPN tunnels share the available gateway bandwidth.

VMware Engine supports VPN connectivity by using the following two types of gateways:

Point-to-site VPN gateway

A point-to-site VPN sends encrypted traffic between a VMware Engine region network and a client computer. Point-to-site VPN helps access your private cloud network, including your private cloud vCenter and workload VMs. Use point-to-site VPN connectivity if you're connecting to the private cloud remotely.
