19m 3s

This lesson explores AWS Transit Gateway - the best way to connect large numbers of VPCs and on-premises networks together. In this lesson, we are going to cover a lot of important topics that will make your network administrators very happy because they won't have to deal with tens or hundreds of independent connections anymore.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to create your own large network topology that uses AWS Transit Gateway to connect multiple VPCs
  • Understand when and why it becomes appropriate to transition away from the standard methods of VPC peering when connecting large numbers of networks

Intended Audience

  • Solutions architects
  • Network engineers
  • Anyone who wants to know more about AWS networking and how to solve some of the larger-scale problems related to it


  • A decent background in computing
  • Basic knowledge of networking within the AWS Cloud
  • Familiarity with network security and on-premises data centers will help to drive some of these points home
  • Experience peering VPCs would also be beneficial, but is not essential
