I would recommend Logmein Hamachi. Its a very flexible solution.

Which cloud service are you using, you should explore the options with your provider maybe they have some good features.

We need to grow and we're looking at purchasing more servers with 1and1.com (We're currently using their Dynamic Cloud Server (VPS) Package).   We welcome advice about moving data centers if necessary.  We prefer to use cloud vps servers however the ability to network them together is a must have, thus the VPN.  Hamachi by logmein is right along the lines of what I'm looking for.  I'm going to check this out.  If you have any additional suggestions in the meantime.. all ears.

A VPN solution for all you servers would be easier, as you can group them all and have access, as if its part of you existing LAN.

If you have the budged, VPN hardware appliance is the safer and better solution.

If you don't have the budged, Logmein is a good choice. But if you use this, put internal and external password to access the servers.
