No, Aviatrix is a software subscription product which a customer deploys within their own perimeter such as AWS, Azure, or Google. The software runs as instances within these IaaS platforms.
The definition of a tunnel is a secure point-to-point connection between two environments. It could be between an on-prem device and a cloud instance, between two cloud environments, or between a user and the cloud environment. As a result, you need to purchase as many tunnels as you have physical connections. There are two types of tunnels: OpenVPN® user tunnels and tunnels between clouds and/or sites. For example, if you are using Aviatrix to connect 2 cloud environments with encrypted peering and 1 datacenter site to connect to each cloud segment that would be 4 cloud/site tunnels.
Yes, between the OpenVPN® user tunnels and cloud/site tunnels categories, the support levels can be different. Within each category, the tunnels must be at the same subscription level to receive support. For example, to receive 24×7 support, all OpenVPN® user tunnels must be licensed at Premium Subscription level.
Yes, for customers who want full technical support during development, QA, and / or pre-production testing, we encourage them to buy our licenses or purchase consulting services.
We tried to take into account the fact that almost all cloud deployments have seasonality and would expand and contract. As a result, the standard policy is that you need to buy Enterprise Edition subscriptions for all tunnels that are operating during peak usage. However, if you have a deployment that has large variance from peak usage to average usage, please contact Sales at firstname.lastname@example.org. to discuss alternative licensing approaches.
One year. For customers that buy many subscriptions and want to synchronize or co-terminate on a single annual renewal date, this can be arranged by contacting Aviatrix Sales at email@example.com. For customers interested in multi-year subscriptions, please contact Sales as well.
Yes, we would be happy to upgrade your subscription on a prorated basis for the remaining duration of your subscription. Please contact Sales at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aviatrix provides free 30-day trials to evaluate the Aviatrix Cloud Native Networking Software for AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud.
“Aviatrix radically simplified cloud networking and made Azure more easily consumable. The combination of Aviatrix and Azure cloud services has enabled our rapid global expansion plans, vastly improved user experience and signicantly reduced our costs.”
“The Aviatrix software provides automated connectivity to Amazon clouds allowing us to create multiple VPCs easily and quickly. We are now serving business units of Robert Half, providing an IT supported self-service system to leverage the public cloud.”
“To the extent that we have peers, they tend to be big Amazon and Docker users. Aviatrix is the networking substrate that we can ignore, that just needs to work. For us, Aviatrix works out really well.”
