Thank you for following up on my post.
We actually don’t have any on-prem infrastructure. The challenge we face is that we plan to open our service in Vancouver region and as a Canadian startup, compliance dictates that we cannot serve our customers from AWS us-west-2 region.
So we started to look for local cloud vendors in Vancouver region and found few vendors that provides OpenStack based VMs that I think we can run our service on.
Then I thought maybe it’ll be nice if we can manage services in Vancouver VMs from our central datacenter. I think I’ll have to ask the local cloud vendor if they provide direct connect and if they don’t provide it then we will just have to manage two separate datacenters running its own set of Consul and Nomad.
So to answer your question, I don’t know until I hear back from the local cloud vendor if they provide AWS Direct Connect. And yes, we are planning to run a Consul cluster in our external cloud.
I think I can take away from your comment that we are gonna need a dedicated line for safety which makes sense because we were reluctant to have our data cross public internet and that was the motivation of me posting here.
Again, thank you again for the kind and detailed feedback.
