Description

This course explores AWS Transit Gateway - the best way to connect large numbers of VPCs and on-premises networks together. In this course, 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

Prerequisites

  • 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
Transcript

Hello, my name is Will Meadows! Welcome to this course on AWS Transit Gateway - The best way to connect large numbers of VPCs and on-premises networks together. In this course, 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.

If you have any questions about anything I cover in this lecture please let me know at will.meadows@cloudacademy.comAlternatively, you can always get in touch with us here at Cloud Academy by sending an email to support@cloudacademy.com and one of our cloud experts will reply to your question, concern, or comment. 

This course is recommended for solutions architects, network engineers, and anyone who wants to know more about AWS networking and how to solve some of the larger scale problems related to it.

After watching this course you will be able to create your own large network topology that uses AWS Transit Gateway to connect multiple VPCs and you will also understand when and why it becomes appropriate to transition away from the standard methods of VPC peering when connecting large numbers of networks.

To get the most out of this course, having a decent background in computing is fundamental. Additionally, you should have a basic knowledge of networking within the AWS Cloud. Finally, having familiarity with network security and on-premises data centers will help to drive some of these points home. I would also recommend having specific experience peering VPCs so you can understand the process involved when those connections move from a 1-to-1 relationship to a many-to-many relationship.

Feedback on our courses here at Cloud Academy are valuable to both us as trainers and any students looking to take the same course in the future. If you have any feedback, positive or negative, it would be greatly appreciated if you could send an email to support@cloudacademy.com.
