Google Cloud VPN lets you connect to your VPC network from your local network using an IPsec VPN.
It lets on-site networks utilise VPC resources, and vice versa.
In this guide, we’ll explain all this information.
By the end of the essay, you’ll know what Google Cloud VPN works and how it can help your company.
First, define private cloud.
Companies that rent servers and virtual machines use cloud models.
Private and public clouds exist.
Private clouds are cloud-hosted resources devoted to a single customer, whereas public clouds share network bandwidth and processing capacity.
What’s a VPC?
VPC is a private cloud within a public cloud.
Many customers buy logically separated pieces of the cloud provider’s public cloud.
Virtual private cloud users don’t share processing and data storage systems.
You get your own private cloud resources, and your data is never shared.
Virtual private clouds should be as secure as traditional private clouds, but cheaper to rent.
How do VPCs work?
Virtual private clouds work like offline physical networks, but everything is virtualized using software.
As with physical devices, you set up virtual computers, subnets, network partitions, network gateways, and access control parameters.
Virtual cloud deployment and maintenance is done through a browser-based administration dashboard.
Virtual Private Cloud is a Google Cloud service.
Cloud providers’ services have similar names.
AWS VPC is Amazon’s virtual private cloud service.
A VPN connects two faraway networks.
It lets devices on various networks interact as though on the same network.
VPN connections in businesses typically use the internet.
Data encryption ensures security.
No intermediary server can see supplied data, ensuring security.
Personal VPN services boost web anonymity and security.
VPNs are vital in VPCs.
Virtual private cloud VPNs fulfil the same duties as enterprise VPNs.
A cloud VPN (e.g., Google Cloud VPN) lets remote networks securely connect to the VPN and vice versa.
Cloud VPNs are useful for connecting your physical network to the cloud.
Your on-site network can use cloud VPN to access VPC resources as if they were on local workstations.
Cloud-based resources can now use on-site resources.
Cloud VPNs can bridge two cloud networks.
You can let Amazon Web Services (AWS) access your Google Virtual Private Cloud.
Google Cloud VPN connects your cloud-based services.
HA vs. Classic Google VPN
Google Cloud VPN has HA VPN and Classic VPN.
Google encouraged administrators to switch to HA VPN from Classic VPN in March 2022.
HA offers several connections at once.
Classic VPN is easier to install and maintain.
HA VPN has a 99.99 percent uptime due to its better setup when correctly configured.
Classic VPN’s SLA is 99.9%.
Extra reliability is crucial for mission-critical applications.
Google Cloud VPN offers safe remote access to network resources as though on the same network.
It operates in Google Cloud Virtual Private Cloud, Google’s cloud networking layer.
Google Cloud VPN can securely link your in-house networks to your VPC or multiple VPCs.
We recommend using the HA VPN version whenever possible.
