In this post we’ll have a look at the process of configuring a FlexVPN network (unofficially known as DMVPN phase 4). I’ll show what components are involved in configuration and how they all tie together. For most patient readers there’s a bonus at the end of this post.
The startup NS1 offers a managed DNS service to accelerate the delivery of Web and mobile content for its customers. It collects network and system telemetry to make intelligent routing decisions.
6WIND, a Packet Pushers sponsor, has been helping get the most networking performance from x86 hardware, making the acceleration software that other companies could use to make the most of their standard servers with multi-core CPUs and Linux. 6WIND has recently taken a further step, offering its own VNFs and virtual networking acceleration software packages to end users like you and me. For example, the Turbo Router and Turbo IPSEC appliances compete with virtual routers from Cisco and Brocade. 6WIND will be appearing on the Packet Pushers Priority Queue podcast near the end of October 2015.
