Securely connect, manage and share your devices across the Internet. Enable them to privately communicate with eachother with ease.
Evon Hub allows you to create a virtual private overlay network (a virtual LAN) for bespoke servers, bringing them right next to eachother, and to you, no matter where they are.
Evon Hub is built around OpenVPN, leaning on its many years of trusted use in connecting private networks, devices and servers to build a secure, virtualised modern network.
All connected devices obtain a static IP address and will automatically re-establish connection if they are rebooted or temporarily lose network connectivity.
Link servers to your Hub with a single command with zero configuration required. VPN traffic looks similar to HTTPS, so you can even join servers that are behind a web proxy.
Allow users, employees and contractors to connect to your Hub and grant them restricted network access to systems, ports and protocols based on simple but flexible rules.
Frictionlessly access any device via your Hub. Enable otherwise disparate servers to communicate with each other, enabling monitoring, orchestration and control of your infrastructure.
Utilise Evon Hub's comprehensive REST API for managing and automating any aspect of your overlay network, from user and server management to automated deployment, policy control and event log auditing.
Evon Hub provides a simple, secure way to manage and share infrastcuture at a network level no matter how disparate your systems and users are. It provides a clean, easy to understand UI that works for you whether you're an individual, a team or an enterprise organisation. Use Evon Hub to:
Evon Hub provides CLI tools and a full-featured REST API for power users and developers. Automate and integrate any aspect of your overlay network including user management, server connections, policy control and event log auditing. You can, for example:
Deploy your Evon Hub in one of many global locations.
For individuals or small teams looking for a simple way to remotely access and manage their servers.
For companies who need to aggregate, manage and orchestrate remote systems.
For companies who require larger scale aggregation of remote systems into an overlay network.
* The maximum number of users and servers is limited to 1024 and 2048 respectively by the overlay network subnet sizes.
^ Bandwidth is reduced to 1Mbps, 5Mbps and 10Mbps for Basic, Standard and Premium plans respectively once the monthly quota is exceeded.

An overlay network is a virtual network that is built on top of another network such as the Internet. Overlay networks can create a unified virtual environment that links disparate systems across different locations, making them appear as if they are on the same local network, thereby facilitating seamless communication and resource sharing.
Evon (an acronym for Elastic Virtual Overlay Network) provides this facility.
There are many overlay network products out there, many of which are built using Wireguard but few that are built using OpenVPN. OpenVPN is a mature product that has stood the test of time with regards to security, is very flexibile and supports a wide array of features including the ability to work in any environment where only TCP/443 is open. Evon was built for users who may need or enjoy OpenVPN's features.
Yes, EvonHub is open source and is released under the GPL-3.0 license. Source code and details for its use are avialable at https://github.com/linuxdojo/evon-hub.
The main difference between Evon and many other overlay network tools is that Evon is built upon OpenVPN rather than Wireguard. Whilst Wireguard is a newer, simpler and faster protocol, OpenVPN has advantages including its ability to use SSL over TCP as its underlying transport, allowing servers that are in more restrictive environments or behind proxy servers to connect to the Hub and join the overlay network.
Many Wireguard-based overlay networks support a peer-to-peer meshed topology, whereas Evon's implementation using OpenVPN uses a hub-spoke topology. While meshed networks yield faster transfer speeds, the hub-spoke architecture used by Evon allows for a simple connectivity and rules framework to be implemented that governs allowed communications between connected systems.
The open source community release of EvonHub on Github provides full control and flexibity to aggregates Evon and, for example, Tailscale, and yield an overlay network that supports the best of both Wireguard and OpenVPN protocols. This may be achievable by installing Tailscale (or whatever other VPN client) on your Evon Hub server itself, or on a server connected to your Evon Hub and adding routes that join the overlay subnets together.
