I am trying to find out what are my best bets to setup a cloud facing server (AWS, Azure on any other "reasoanble" provider) that would have a number of public IP and a VPN to my local network.
At the moment we have an internet connexion with /29 static IP space but this is getting a bit "tight" and is also fairly costly from our ISP.
I think we should rather use a cloud server and tunnel the traffic to our local connection (possibly keeping a few local IP as contingency).
- 8 static Ip with some "easy" way to grow if / when needed
- IPs in Europe
- 100 Mb symmetric connectivity (we don't need more) with say 1Tb traffic/month (probably significantly less than that)
- possibility to set up an IDP/IDS on / around the box (as an extra option)
- obviously good price and reliability
What would be my best bet in setting up this (both in terms of the underlying OS and provider)? I was thinking of running a pfSense VM in AWS but I happy to read your suggestions
