Routing Amazon VPC Traffic Through a Network Appliance
Amazon VPC is a foundational offering from Amazon Web Services that lets you create private networks in the cloud and gives you full control over the internal network routing. A common need when using cloud networks is use of a network appliance to inspect or monitor network traffic between network devices.
Learning how to configure routing will make you more effective at creating complex VPC networks. Use of a network appliance can give you real-time observability over your network traffic.
In this lab, you will configure routing so that incoming public internet traffic is routed through a network appliance before arriving at its destination.
