Currently, we have two data centers in Mumbai, IN. Those data centers will be undergoing consolidation the first week of July. To ensure minimal impact on your business operations, we have scheduled the consolidation to occur during non-business hours. Nevertheless, we advise all customers to plan for a possible service interruption in Mumbai during the maintenance period.   If you are utilizing AutoVPN or IPsec tunnels at the Mumbai data center, rest assured that your tunnels should be seamlessly migrated to the consolidated data center. We will be using the same automated tunnel migration process when a data center goes out of rotation for maintenance.  There may be a disruption as we transition your active connections, requiring a disconnect and reconnect phase. To minimize any chance of impact, please make sure you have backup tunnels configured to the secondary data center.   Please contact our support team if you have any issues post-migration.     https://documentation.meraki.com/CiscoPlusSecureConnect/Cisco___Secure_Connect_Troubleshooting_Guides/How_to_Contact_Cisco___Secure_Connect_Support

Before the integration of Meraki SD-WAN Hubs, the Secure Connect cloud had to serve as the hub, and all sites were required to be spokes. Now, with the support of the Meraki SD-WAN Hub, a site connected to Secure Connect can function as either a hub or a spoke.   This feature is particularly beneficial for existing Meraki SD-WAN customers, as it allows them to directly access their private applications through a Meraki Hub. This setup can reduce latency for sites that are located close to the hub site or if the application is hosted on an IaaS platform such as AWS, GCP, Azure, or others.   Additionally, there are other use cases to consider. If you're interested, you can learn more about Meraki SD-WAN Hub integration by clicking here to visit the documentation page.
