SMP 3.x Production Landscape - Reverse Proxy (Relay Server) Vs VPN

Dear Experts,

We are making an important Landscape Design decision in which we need to recommend Reverse Proxy or VPN based access to one of our SMP clients.

We need clarity on following questions.

Application Set 1: Custom SAP UI5 Applications, SMP, OData and Netweaver Gateway

Application Set 2: FIORI Applications

1- What is SAP recommended approach, Reverse Proxy OR VPN based direct access to SMP server ? Any reference document will be highly appreciated.

As per our current analysis, SAP always used Reverse Proxy in Productive Landscape.

2- I have read in one of SAP Documents that FIORI based applications does not support Reverse Proxy. Does VPN based approach a good fit for FIORI based application if user is outside corporate Network?

3- Is it possible to create Clustered Environment with Fail over without Reverse Proxy?

4- Is it possible to do Load balancing without Reverse Proxy?

5- What are other Pros and Cons of using VPN based approach instead of Reverse Proxy?

A prompt response will be highly appreciated.
