Description

In this section of the AWS Certified Advanced Networking - Specialty learning path, we introduce you to the various tools, technologies, and services used to connect on-premises environments to the AWS Cloud, including Direct Connect and VPNs.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and describe how Direct Connect and VPNs are used to connect on-premises environments to the AWS Cloud
  • Describe advanced AWS Direct Connect connectivity scenarios, including when to leverage Public, Private, and Transit Virtual Interfaces (VIFs)
  • Understand routing fundamentals for static and dynamic routing in AWS along with industry-standard routing protocols such as Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)
  • Describe how to use encryption to secure traffic as it travels across VPNs and Direct Connect connections

Prerequisites

The AWS Certified Advanced Networking - Specialty certification has been designed for anyone with experience designing, implementing, and operating complex AWS and hybrid networking architectures. Ideally, you’ll also have some exposure to the nuances of AWS networking, particularly regarding the integration of AWS services and AWS security best practices. Many exam questions will require advanced level knowledge of many AWS services, including AWS networking services. The AWS Cloud concepts introduced in this course will be explained and reinforced from the ground up.

Transcript

Hello, and welcome to this course on connecting on-premises environments to the AWS Cloud, where we’re here to help you on your journey to prepare for the AWS Certified Advanced Networking - Specialty certification.

Before we get started, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Danny Jessee, and I am one of the trainers here at Cloud Academy, specializing in AWS – Amazon Web Services – and AWS certifications. In this course, the AWS team will be presenting a series of lectures that introduce AWS Networking services that may be covered on the exam. Feel free to contact me with any questions using the details shown on the screen, or you can always get in touch with us here at Cloud Academy by sending an email to support@cloudacademy.com, where one of our Cloud experts will reply to your question.

This course has been specifically curated to help you pass the newly updated AWS Certified Advanced Networking - Specialty exam and is ideal for anyone who is looking to learn more about AWS Networking services in preparation for the exam.

The objective of this course is to provide a high-level introduction to the tools, technologies, and services used to connect on-premises environments to the AWS Cloud, including Direct Connect and VPNs. We’ll see how to use encryption to secure traffic as it travels across VPNs and Direct Connect connections. And we’ll also introduce AWS routing fundamentals along with industry-standard routing protocols such as Border Gateway Protocol, or BGP.

Together with the other courses in this learning path, we’ll cover all of the key tools, technologies, and concepts from the AWS Certified Advanced Networking - Specialty exam guide and ensure that you are fully prepared to sit this exam.
