How to Improve Your VPN’s Infrastructure
The obvious way to handle greater VPN use is to increase the capacity of the VPN infrastructure itself. There are several ways to do this (and some can be used simultaneously).

- Deploy additional VPN servers. This not only adds sheer capacity, but also can improve VPN availability, especially if the servers are deployed to multiple locations.
