Here at Netmagic, we want to make cloud networking easy: SimpliNet VFA is a Virtual Firewall Service that can be contracted additionally to add multiple network layer extensions to your SimpliCloud infrastructure to enhance availability, security and performance.
The Virtual Firewall Appliance (VFA) is a ready-to-deploy Input Gateway that provides a Firewalled entry point into a virtual server. The Firewall is provisioned online via the same provisioning portal that customers use to provision their Virtual Servers and other cloud-related services. Protocols supported by the VFA are TCP and UDP.
Is there a limit to the number of VMs I can put behind a VFA?
There is absolutely no limit to the number of SimpliCompute Instances (Virtual Servers) that you can place behind a VFA. Simply choose the VFA size that matches your requirement and you’re good to go. The Provisioning Portal will allow you to manage the Firewall by opening and closing ports and defining your own Firewall rules and policies. You can also configure your own IPSec VPNs on the Firewall and configure the device in High availability for maximum protection.
