VNS3 NAT Gateway
VNS3 NATe provides Virtual Network Address Translation (NAT) functions at a significantly cheaper price than Azure NAT Gateways. VNS3 NATe allows instances in a private Azure subnet to connect to services outside your VNET but prevents external services/devices from initiating a connection with your instances. Replace your existing Azure NAT Gateways to save money, increase control, and have access to better support.
Be a FinOps Hero and Reduce Your Azure Cloud Bill
Each cloud vendor charges for every GB of data processed by your Azure NAT Gateway. If your network sees a lot of data, this can get expensive. With VNS3, you only pay for the virtual machine runtime.

Same NAT, Reduced Cost
If you use Azure NAT Gateways, you are overpaying. Microsoft Azure charges a Data Processing fee (typically $0.045 / GB) on top of the already expensive runtime cost for the Azure NAT Gateway. It’s a cloud tax that you don’t have to pay with VNS3 NATe.
