VNS3 is a hybrid overlay networking appliance built for GCE integrated cloud deployments

The VNS3 product family is a suite of security and network routing solutions that let enterprises extend virtual networks into public, private and hybrid clouds. It’s different from other network function virtualization (NFV) solutions because of the customer-controlled overlay network built on top of the underlying cloud network.
