Technically it is vpn server and client. We are using Wireguard, not openvpn.
But they are very different, in the following aspects:
- VPN client and server set up is complicated. So you have to set up server, get the config and set up client. Most people cannot get this done within 30 minutes. We Site2Site you can do this in minutes.
- It is about routing. Site2Site only links two networks into one. Each network will still have its own Internet. This is very different from a client/server concept which client’s Data will all go through the server.
- It is about automation. So you do not need to configure server then client. You can just create a network via cloud and all will be set up. And you can monitor the connections.
- I is about business concept. Linking multiple offices in different locations is not a technical concept, but rather business concept and it addresses productivity.
So all applications is some tools/platform/UI that is based on basic IT technologies.
