Connect DO Private Network With AWS Private Network using VPC

Posted August 30, 2016 7.7k views


Is it possible to connect a group of droplets in DO with a group of instances in AWS?

I’m trying to create a hybrid cloud between windows instances in AWS and Linux instances in DO.

I was thinking I could use something like a site-to-site VPN, with the VPC feature in AWS amazon. But don’t know if DO supports it.

You could use the following tutorial to connect your virtual servers from AWS and Digital Ocean together in a private VPN:

In this tutorial, we will go over how to use Tinc, an open source Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon, to create a secure VPN that your servers can communicate on as if they were on a local network. We will also demonstrate how to use Tinc to set up a secure tunnel into a private network. We will be using Ubuntu 14.04 servers, but the configurations can be adapted for use with any other OS.
