multiple SSL VPN tunnels with clients?

I have a particular issue that I'm hoping to solve. I have a SaaS environment split between to datacenters. I want to make it so that clients can connect to multiple VPN gateways with a single connection. I do not want to have traffic traverse one datacenter to get to the 2nd one. Is this possible?

    Not from a client on a host.  You would need site-to-site VPNs (IPSec) to do what you're describing.

    As the connections would be terminating on two different endpoints, it would be two connections.

    I think you might be able to do this with OpenVPN

    I looked into OpenVPN and I don't see any documentation suggesting this is feasible. Has anyone attempted this?

    If you have multiple openvpn configurations, all will be started and stopped at the same time.

    You can run multiple remote access VPNs right off the DUN in Windows,...they are no different than an old Dialup connection in their behavor and you can have multiple Dialup connections.  As long as the IP Subnets are different at each VPN end-point it should be fine.  But you can't have over-lapping IP Ranges and you don't want to get into complex routing,...and they may have problems communicating on their own local LAN while the VPNs are don't be tempted to get too "creative".

    You don't need any third party stuff like OpenVPN,...Windows can do it all by itself.
