Gateway SKUs by tunnel, connection, and throughput

Copper Contributor

Hi everyone,


Can someone please explain to me. What is the point of publishing max 10 tunnels for basic Virtual Gateway when you can ONLY do 1 tunnel using ike1 with the Basic SKU?


I mean why does it say 10? Is that a blunt "marketing" or is there a true way to get 10 tunnels running off a Basic SKU Virtual Gateway? If yes how? I am just curious?




Yet we see the following statement published at




I mean what am I missing here? Does the basic SKU support up to 10 tunnels but ONLY if they are IKEv2 ?


Thank you everyone for your input and guidance here
