Inter-Cloud Secure Proxy

Open in Dashboard

Published by RightScale Open Source on May 22, 2013Revision: 1


This ServerTemplate is used to configure a secure tunnel between clouds or regions to allow easy encrypted data transfer between.

It uses an SSH connection to configure a proxying tunnel. This allows servers in cloud A to direct connections locally to a proxy which are securely passed on to a server in cloud B via a proxying host.

It does this using a daemon AutoSSH to manage the connection. See AutoSSH for details.

This ServerTemplate is on the LTS Lineage.

For a description of the Infinity and LTS lineages, see ServerTemplate Release Methodology

Key Features: * Configures a tunnel endpoint. One is needed in each cloud where a tunnel needs to start and / or end. * Basic set of scripts for a RightLink-based server with logging, monitoring, alerts, etc. * MultiCloud Images that reference the latest supported images with a frozen software repository date that has been tested. * Basic set of alerts for most server type monitoring. * Examples of system-required input variables.
