Join cloud experts Neel Kumar and Mike McLaughin from Aviatrix for a technical chalk talk on how you can solve some of the common issues that can occur when running cloud networking at scale. This group of chalk talks and technical demonstrations provides a practical reference for how to solve complex cloud networking challenges. First, we outline the common architectures and issues faced when scaling cloud architectures, then we workshop a transitive architecture use case defining best practices and design patterns. We discuss multi-cloud implementation, provider limits, hub and spoke architecture patterns, VPN and connectivity. Next, we set up a transitive controller in the AWS console with two instructional demos. 

Learning Objectives 

  • Recognize and explain the common issues that occur when running complex cloud networks 
  • Describe and implement transitive architecture designs using a hub and spoke model 
  • Implement and maintain VPC connectivity at scale 

Intended Audience

This lesson will suit anyone running or planning to run cloud services at scale.

Prerequisites

an understanding of Cloud networking and the AWS Virtual Private Cloud will help you gain the most from this Chalk Talk.
We recommend completing the AWS Networking & Content Delivery course in order to gain practical knowledge and hands-on experience if you are not familiar with cloud networking and the virtual private cloud. 

Content Overview

First, we outline the common architectures and issues faced when scaling cloud architectures, then we workshop a transitive architecture and design pattern. Next, we set up a transitive hub in the AWS console with a hands-on demo, and discuss the following:

  1. Cloud Networking - The Common Journey
  2. The Common Patterns with VPC Design
  3. Designing a Transitive VPC Architecture
  4. Managing Network Security at Scale
  5. DEMO - Setting up a Transitive Controller
  6. DEMO - Setting up a Transitive Hub
