Description

Lab Overview

In this Lab, you will set up VPN connections with an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) using dynamic routing as you make strides in migrating an on-premises application into the AWS cloud. You will configure the networking between your corporate network and an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). The database (db) is hosted on-premises and the application is hosted in the cloud. As part of a real-world scenario, you will complete a design by fulfilling requirements.

Lab Objectives

Upon completion of this Lab you will be able to:

  • Connect on-premises networks to Amazon VPCs using Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) virtual private network (VPN) tunnels
  • Configure internal Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) on on-premises routers
  • Configure on-premises routers to connect to Amazon VPCs using BGP
  • Understand the differences between static and dynamic routing
  • Gain experience with multi-homed instances and understand some reasons for using them

Lab Prerequisites

You should be familiar with the following:

  • AWS networking concepts including VPCs, subnets, internet gateways, security groups, route tables, and Elastic IP addresses
  • AWS compute concepts including EC2 instances
  • Static routes in networks
  • Knowledge of routing protocols is beneficial, but not required

Lab Environment

Before completing the Lab instructions, the environment will look as follows:

After completing the Lab instructions, the environment should look similar to:
