How do I create and use on-ramp regions?

When a Nerdio virtual IT environment is provisioned, all desktops, servers, etc. are located in a single Azure region. This region is referred to as the primary region. It should be physically closest to the location of the majority of desktop users. On-ramp regions allow users to connect to Nerdio desktops in an Azure region that is closest to their location, instead of the primary region. This is particularly useful for users that are located at a branch office in a different country or continent. To use on-ramp regions you must first enable VPN connections. Note that you will incur additional costs with Azure.

To enable VPN connections:

  1. Log in to Nerdio Admin Portal as Account IT admin or Account admin.
  2. Under Network menu option, click VPN connections
  3. Move switch "VPN and On-Ramp Regions", to On.

To add on-ramp region:

  1. Log in to Nerdio Admin Portal.
  2. Under Network menu option, click On-ramp regions.
  3. Click button "Add on-ramp region".
  4. Select the region closest to your non-primary region user group or office and click Save.

To move existing users to new on-ramp region:

  1. Log in to Nerdio Admin Portal as Account IT admin or Account admin.
  2. Click Users menu.
  3. Locate user and click the user's name to edit user.
  4. Under Desktops, select the "Place in On-Ramp Region" button.
  5. Select appropriate Region and click Save.

To put new users in on-ramp region:

  1. Log in to Nerdio Admin Portal as Account IT admin or Account admin.
  2. Click Users menu.
  3. Click button Add user.
  4. Under Desktops, select the "Place in On-Ramp Region" button.
  5. Select appropriate Region and click Save.
