Launching Meshify Cloud Services

If you’re looking to get up and running quickly with Meshify VPN Service, then use one of our pre-built images in AWS or Azure. Each VM comes from an Ubuntu base, along with WireGuard and Meshify Agent installed. They are also configured with IP forwarding enabled by default, allowing for quick and easy configuration. Plus, as an added benefit, using one of our pre-built VMs pays us, which means you do not need an additional subscription. Billing through AWS or Azure lowers our costs, so we’re more than happy to pass along the savings!

Docker

You can run the same containers we run! They’re published on Docker Hub. Also available in an ARM64 flavor. Note that these containers work perfectly on Linux distributions. Trying to run them on Windows will work, provided you recompile the Linux kernel for Windows to include WireGuard. We recommend using Linux for container work, and the Meshify Agent for Windows.
