Description

In this course, we introduce the latest addition to the AWS Elastic Load Balancer Family, the AWS Gateway Load Balancer. It solves the problem of scaling third-party virtual network appliance deployments to match the scalability of your applications.

Learning Objectives

This course is an advanced-level AWS Networking course. You will learn about the Gateway Load Balancer and how it’s implemented to support virtual network appliance deployments in Amazon VPCs.

Intended Audience

This course is intended for architects and network engineers looking to understand the basic function and operation of AWS Gateway Load Balancer in Amazon VPCs. This course also covers some of the objectives for both the solutions architect professional certification exam and the AWS Networking Specialty certification exam.

Prerequisites 

To get the most out of this course, you will need to meet the requirements for any of the associate-level certifications by AWS or the equivalent experience.  

This session expects that you are fluent in the fundamentals of networking using AWS, including VPC, Subnets, Route Tables, and VPC Endpoints, among other advanced features. We will have a review of these fundamental ideas for the sake of context in the explanations. For details about these items, you can refer to the Cloud Academy course Working With AWS Networking and Amazon VPC

In this course, we introduce the latest edition to the AWS Elastic Load Balancer family, the AWS Gateway Load Balancer. It solves the problem of scaling third-party virtual network appliance deployments to match the scalability of your applications. Network appliances examine network traffic both inbound and outbound, usually for network security reasons like intrusion detection systems. Before the introduction of the Gateway Load Balancer, scaling and network appliance deployment was difficult to implement for a number of network technical issues. 

We are going to clarify the basic architecture for using AWS Gateway Load Balancer and discuss a number of features about Amazon VPCs. This course is intended for architects and network engineers looking to understand the basic function and operation of the AWS Gateway Load Balancer in Amazon VPCs. This course also covers some of the objectives for both the Solutions Architect Professional certification exam and the AWS Networking Specialty certification exams. This course is an advanced-level AWS networking course.
