Hybrid cloud environments are a highly scalable and cost-effective option for enterprises that need to expand their on-premises infrastructure. In every hybrid cloud solutions, the issue of inter-cloud network connectivity has to be overcome to allow communications, possibly secure, between resources scattered over multiple networks. Network visualization provides the right method for addressing this issue. We present how Azure Virtual Private Network (VPN) services are used to establish an overlay network for hybrid clouds in our Aneka platform. First, we explain how Aneka resource provisioning module is extended to support Azure Resource Manger (ARM) application programming interfaces (APIs). Then, we walk through the process of establishment of an Azure Point-to-Site VPN to provide connectivity between Aneka nodes in the hybrid cloud environment. Finally, we present a case study hybrid cloud in Aneka and we experiment with it to demonstrate the functionality of the system.
